Hello friends! It has been awhile hasn’t it? You must’ve thought I’m aiming to grow gargantuos cobwebs on this blogsite of mine. Well, I’m back. With somewhat of a vengeance ;) Having shot quite a number of weddings and portrait sessions recently, I’m rather spoilt for choice on what to share first! Which is actually a good thing no? Okay okay. Enough bantering from me, its time to meet my new friends Shireen and Hugo!

Time and again, when I meet couples like Shireen and Hugo, I think to myself “Sh*t Anna, you’re one lucky bugger. You get to shoot people in love”. Cheesy I know, but that’s how I roll.
Shireen and Hugo met through her brother and whilst her first impression of him wasn’t exactly the best ;p they started dating not long after the first meet up. And to celebrate their recent second anniversary of dating, they decided to have a portrait session with me! Lucky, lucky me :D
It was on an absolutely gorgeous Saturday morning that I met up with these two lovebirds at a park in KL and from the beginning of the session, it was an absolute breeze! Even though it was the first time I met them, it was evident that they adore each other to pieces. With nicknames for each other, Shireen’s one is Skippy for she skips when she’s happy ;p and Hugo’s one HP for his initials, they laughed, kissed, cuddled and playfully made fun of each other throughout the session.
And that’s what made their session absolutely fun. They were just comfortable with each other, joking around, unconscious about sharing their love with that weird photographer and just purely themselves. And like I tell all my clients, there’s absolutely nothing to be self-conscious about, just let go and be yourself. That’s when you get the money shots ;p
Shireen and Hugo, thank you for spending that lovely Saturday morning with me. It was an absolute pleasure and do keep in touch!
