For those of you who are loyal followers of our blog, you will know Coria and Paul like they are your best friends. They are certainly very good friends with us, from shooting their pre-wedding portraits in New York, to shooting their wedding day in Hong Kong, to newborn portraits of their first child, to now their child’s first birthday – we have been a part of their journey and it has been a privilege to watch their family grow.
It is rare that we get to be a part of a couple’s relationship in this way – we really feel like we’re a part of the furniture, so to speak. This time, we were witness to Coria and Paul’s daughter’s first birthday. Coria had many ideas with regards to the photoshoot and she has amazing taste – arranging many beautiful things for her daughter’s photoshoot!
It was also the first time I worked with cake mess and we were very interested in how Coria and Paul’s daughter would react to the cake – whether she would enjoy it, etc. In fact, it was a bit of a scary experience for the little girl and unexpected for us as we didn’t realise she would be afraid of cake! We definitely managed to get some unexpected shots during the photoshoot!
