We have been wanting to get a family portrait done but have been hesitating. Mostly because we are unsure of the condition we are going to shoot and whether the photographer would be understanding of our K's need.
After the rare disease day 2014, RDSS helped arranged family portrait sessions for her members with Mr. Lawrence Loh of Lawrence Photography
What we expected was a single photographer who would come in by himself. We are in fact very fine and was expecting only a photographer turning up. We were very appreciative of the photographer's effort to come volunteer and to fulfill one of the things we had wished to do with K.
But no, he had an assistant, make up artist and bodyguard (kidding. That's the boyfriend of the makeup artist). They lugged photography equipments and quite a hefty makeup kit. He had to set up his light boxes, light check, make up for us, just like those photography studio.
Mummy and daddy got their photos taken too. It was kind of awkward. It seems like we haven't really took a photo together for a long time. Made me laugh as I think back about it.
This one, we are told to form a heart shape. Sorry our imagination is abit limited.
It was really beyond my expectations to have a whole team of people sacrificing their time on a weekend to bring a smile to a special kid.
And indeed on that day, they made K feel special. And yes, K gave her smiles...lots of it, to them.
Thank you Mr. Lawrence Loh, Charis, Ling ling and Camus for their time and effort to come to ulu punggol and their fine work.
