Intern Extraordinaire Part Deux

Last year around this time, we had the pleasure of having Yvonne Soh as our intern at the studio. If you had seen her illustrations you will know that I am not exaggerating when I tell you she is DAMN good! See my blog masthead above? That's her work too.

So the first day she started her slavery internship, we put her illustration skills to good use hee hee :p We were preparing for a baby fair and wanted some tee-shirts printed and she helped us with the character illustrations and tee design all within a day! Here's a shot I took of Yvonne and she has included Wen Lin, Joanne and me with her in the shot using the illustrations she did for our tee-shirt :) Cute right?

While she was interning with us, we also tried to incorporate her illustrations with our photography and you can see examples of our collaboration here and here. She also designed our 2012 brochure, Christmas card templates, my blog's namecard etc and overall we were very happy with our intern of last year. Well, guess what? Yvonne is joining us again next week for a few weeks! We can't wait for her to help us with that mountain of photo editing to work with her again and Yvonne, good luck with your final year project, see you soon! :)

The Evanoffs

Did I tell you that I love Canadians? They are warm and friendly and one after another my Canadian clients have introduced their friends to me and I can't thank them enough for the support shown :)

Meet the Evanoffs, a Canadian couple who recently came for their Bloom and Teeny Weeny sessions. The Bloom shoot was wonderfully relaxed and I made a mental note of some of the shots we took (including props used) to carry over to their Teeny Weeny session in a few weeks time. Well, the newborn session with little Aidan really made me sweat literally! He wasn't sleepy even after many feeds, he fussed, cried, poo and peed :p Mummy and daddy were on the verge of giving up. Plus we had all those challenging shots planned but now seem unachievable with a very awake baby :(

Well we did what we could and I am so happy with what we managed to achieve despite the difficulties. The "aeroplane" shot in particular which was requested by mummy proved the most challenging and I implore you not to try this unless you have all safety measures checked! Newborn safety in photography is of utmost importance and we take this very seriously.

Thank you Theresa, Darryl and Aidan for your time, here are a few favourites from your session :)
