The daughters planned a surprise party for their mother, Betty, to celebrate her 70th birthday. Friends, family members and restaurant staff were in cahoots and kept the birthday girl in the dark. Not sure if she had suspected something all along, or the occasion overwhelmed her, she seemed taken aback at first. After a while, as her friends each took turns to congratulate her, she warmed up immediately and became visibly happier and talkative as the evening progressed. I was privileged to be part of this joyous celebration, as the family was super nice to the photographer and I wish Aunty Betty good health and happiness!
Thanks to my friend Winson Ho , I got to document his latest and youngest niece, Laura's first month party, held at SAFRA Toa Payoh. Her parents, Lincoln and Josephine, already have a 12-year-old daughter, so the near decade-long wait for a second child must have been exhilarating for them. In my mind, to dust off the stroller, re-assemble the cot, and unpack the old baby clothes must have brought back very fond memories of the times when they had the first born. However, not many are as cheapskate as I am. Baby Laura should be receiving better and newer stuff. And having me as her first photographer is a good start. (kekeke...)
It is not everyday I get to see unicorns and flying fox at someone else's home.
Remember Aarav's birthday party post? Well, Vihari got my name from Aarav's mummy not long after that birthday party, and there I was documenting another milestone of yet another adorable toddler. Kiara was dressed elegantly in a simple white dress but received royal treatment from whoever was present. The good-natured girl was friendly and smiley throughout (even towards me), and I wish the little princess good health!
