Newborn Photoshoot

Posted by on Nov 16, 2016 in Baby Chan, Family | 0 comments

Part 2 of our baby photography journey with Joee Wong is the newborn photoshoot.  Our little monkey was 4 days old when he came over in the afternoon to snap some pics.  Looking back at them now, they are just so precious.  Babies grows so fast.  Abigail is 1 month already by this time, and looking at these pictures makes me feel nostalgic already!! Her little cute blue dress that Daddy specially bought for the photoshoot is now a shirt!  We are so glad we did this newborn shoot. Though we have been taking a lot of pictures of Abigail on our own, there really isn’t many of us together as a family – plus Joee is a baby whisperer.  Just some of my favourites here.  She is just too sweet. love her.

Introducing new addition part 2

Posted by on Nov 15, 2016 in Baby Chan, Ellie our Samoyed, Family | 0 comments

We are in love…with our baby girl!!!  Introducing Miss Abigail, the cutest and most feisty baby ever (in our eyes).  She came into the world in a hurry (after taking her sweet time during the pregnancy), and since then has turned our lives upside down, but somehow made it seem right and complete.  Will have to write the birth story another time so that I don’t forget the details.

I’m very pleased to say that Ellie has been the sweetest furry big sister ever…the first few weeks she mostly stayed away with a few licks and kisses here and there.  Over last week or so we have seen Ellie sleep next to the bassinet often; and even put her chin on her leg when she’s crying on our laps!  so sweet. just melts our  hearts.

This is my absolute favourite picture of my 2 girls.  I hope that Abigail will grow up appreciating how special Ellie and Samoyeds are, and be BFFs for life. I even created a IG hashtag for them: EllieandAbigail.  my hearts.

Maternity Photoshoot

Posted by on Sep 24, 2016 in Baby Chan, Family | 0 comments

We decided to officially capture our journey to parenthood with a 3 part photography session with Joee Wong; he was a photographer for my friend’s wedding and we really liked his style.  I recall one of the most important I asked of him was whether he likes dogs, and whether he has taken photos of dogs.  To which his response was YES!

I was 32 weeks when Joee came over to the house.  My baby bump wasn’t huge then.  Joee had to keep telling me to craddle my belly so that it would show more in pictures.

We started just us around the house:

and then we grabbed Ellie (of course) to try to take a pic with us.  She wasn’t in the mood (at that time) as you can see:


Went up to the nursery to capture a one last shot before heading out:


And then we went to a nearby park for some natural scenery.  This is the absolute BEST photo ever. Even Ellie was modellling!


Some more of my favs:
