There are some days that you’re reminded just how blessed you are to do what you love. And that fact is reinforced everytime I get to work with couples like Shireen and Hugo.
They recently celebrated their first year anniversary at the Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur and I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with them, just taking pictures of these two not-so-newlyweds hanging out, enjoying each other’s company.
Sometimes I get asked why would couples have ‘just because’ portrait sessions. Why not? Truth to be told, when I shoot sessions like this, I feel like I’m actually not shooting them for the couple. As cheesy as this may sound, I think about how their future kids will feel when they get to see these photos. Hopefully they’ll realise just how much love they were created out of and how much love they’ve grown up with. Of course, it would be awesome too if couples were to look back on their old pictures years down the road and have their love rekindled time after time 🙂
Shireen and Hugo, thanks again for everything. You have both been so supportive of my career thus far and for that I am truly grateful! I sure hope I get to work with you two again, maybe this time, we can do a maternity session ;p Much love and gratitude, A.
