I love the challenge of photographing big extended families! Kids, grand-kids, fur-kids and young-at-hearts! One big happy family looking into the camera and say “Gabbie”! Well, i wish it was that easy but fret not, I have my secret weapons to get the attention of everyone. Treats, squeakers, me making a furball of myself… They seemed to enjoy the variety of sounds only a pet & family photographer is willing to make. Out loud, in public. 😀

Preparation is the key to success!

I always make sure that my clients know exactly what to prepare for the shoot. It’s a team work to make sure all is communicated and everyone feels ready for the shoot. The photoshoot is an important investment of time and money for everyone so our pre-consultation is a must to ensure that the actual shoot goes smoothly! For big shoots like this, it’s important that everyone have their clothing coordinated in order to achieve the best visual results that not only speaks for each of their personalities, but also looks whole as a family unit. I send a clothing style guide for them to choose from. Each sub family group are in their own color zone… Red (younger sister’s family) and blue (older sister’s family). Grandma and grandpa are in purple (red+blue)!

It was such a joy to photograph the kids enjoying their playtime with their parents and Gabbie on a relaxing Sunday morning at East Coast Park.

At the end of the shoot, everyone had their fair share of fun and laughter although it did took toll on Gabbie (9-year-old Schnauzer). Time to head home!

Bong-Bong (Female Shih-Tsu, 11yo) and Chester (Male Schnauzer, 2yo) had a litter of 5 adorable puppies. Sadly, due to complications during labour, Bong-Bong passed away on the operating table after the delivery. Mrs. Chia entered the operating theatre to see 5 pups suckling to the covered-up, motionless body of Bong-Bong, for their 1st and last serving of Mother’s milk and colostrum, vital for their growth.
The vet reminded her that the 5 puppies may not make it through their early growth and advised not name them to minimise any emotional attachment.

They were labeled with colored ribbons (yellow, green, purple, blue, pink) and Mrs. Chia has been taking care of them intently. Tending to them every few hours to feed them and also weigh them daily on the cake weighing scale to ensure they are growing healthily. Almost 5 months has passed and the puppies have outgrown the cake weighing scale! They have been ascertained to be healthy and have passed their critical period, all thanks to Mrs. Chia’s dedication and love for them.

The Chia family wanted to preserve the beautiful memory and journey with the 5 puppies together before they give some of them away to friends and family. I’ve had such a great time photographing the 5 very playful and active puppies, rolling in the mud and being attacked by loads of kisses from them. Can’t wait to see them again when they are all grown up! 😀

Client’s Praise:

Ling was really wonderful to work with. Her experience really shows as she has managed to capture really interesting shots of the dogs as they were just being themselves. Her attention to detail was also impeccable as the final product exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge in wildlife photography really lends itself to capturing vivid, candid pictures of our beloved pets and I won’t hesitate to engage her again.
