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. πŸ˜€

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! πŸ˜€

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.

Sweet, little Winnie (12- year-old Shih-Tzu) was originally going for a regular on-location session with Sherwin (3-year-old Toy Poodle) and her family. However, it turned into a Tribute Session as they found out Winnie was really ill with Leukemia one week before the photoshoot. On the morning of the Photo session, we were blessed with a really beautiful blue sky morning at East Coast Park beach. Winnie, Sherwin and the family enjoyed the sun, sand and sea as beautiful treasured memories were captured.

An amazing and happy experience

The whole session was special and meaningful, filled with lots of smiles and laughter. There were some sad moments, as there always are, but overall it was an amazing and happy experience. Though Winnie was already really sick and weak then, she was really happy and enjoy the photo shoot ( just look at her sweet smiley face! ). Sherwin is playful and full of energy as he ran about on the grass field!

Client’s Praise:

The shoot came at a timely moment as one of our dog, Winnie (the Shih Tzu) was unexpectedly diagnosed with Leukemia. We decided to go to our fav haunt with the dogs, east coast park. This is where I spent a lot of memories with Winnie especially and Ling was totally cool with it. She even gave constructive suggestion as to which specific area is good for photo shoot. Ling was very professionally during the photo shoot. She made us feel at ease during the shoot and we had a lot of fun with the dogs. Although Winnie was not well, we could see that she was very happy and Ling captured every moment of that. To us, those moments was very precious as it was her last few weeks with us. We are very thankful to Ling as she captured not only the beautiful moments but also Winnie’s smile.

We received the finished product with much satisfaction and people around us who saw the photos were all very impressed! I would definitely recommend C.S.Ling Pets & Family Photography to everyone as I felt that anyone who owned a pet should have a memorabilia of their best friends. It will be even more precious after your best friends leaves you for a better place and what’s not better than to have it taken by a professional like Ling who have the skills and ability to capture those special moments for you. Thank you Ling!

Cats, more then almost any other pet, can be extremely challenging just by their very nature. Bob and Sam definitey lives up to their feline reputation. I can definately feel a sense of regalness as I slowly get close to them to help familiarize them with my camera. It certainly took awhile for them to look my Nikon in the eye but the patience paid off! πŸ™‚

Sam’s favourite corner of the house, unfortunately, Bob’s favourite too it seems. Soon after this picture was taken, a fight broke out between the two and Sam took a swipe at Bob’s eyes and regained her throne. Bob sadly retreated behind the curtain for the rest of the shoot. πŸ™ I guess cats fight for the Hub Station while humans fight for the remote control? hehe

Client’s Praise:

Photographing our two cats has always been a challenge, given their skittish and shy nature. As such it was a pleasure working with C.S.Ling Photography to bring out the best in Samantha and Bob’s personalities for a family photo session. Their patience and skill were excellent, which shows in the photos from the session – we’re really pleased at how the finished prints brought out the personalities of both cats.
