What a gift for me to have crossed paths with this gorgeous couple. To witness the love, trust and adoration between the two of them gave me goosebumps. There were so many moments during our session where I just sighed with full contentedness as we wandered through one of their favourite parks. They are as beautiful in character and kindness as they look in their images ... can't wait to meet their second little one in July.

Today is our last day as South Islanders! Right now we are waiting in line to board the Ferry to Wellington ✨ Sorry we are a bit quiet as we settle back into our lives back home in the 'naki. We have loved the South but it is time to head home. I am already missing all the beautiful people I have met since being in Dunedin 💕

“If there is one thing I can pass on from my humbling experiences in life, thus far, I will tell you this, the next time someone tells you "the absence of expectations is the absence of disappointment, do not listen. Have expectations. Keep them great. It'll be a very bumpy ride. You'll even get bruised, sometimes very badly. Sometimes, you'll come to an abrupt halt or even fall off your ride. But you'll grow. And if you do not grow, you do not live.” - Pandora Poikilos . . . . . . . . . . . #dearphotographer #creativeselfie #p52radness #selfportraitphotography #theechoesinside #the_imperfectionists #lifein52 #clickaday2018 #_a_beautiful_you #fa_emotive #sonyalpha #pr0ject_uno #selfportraitproject #idahogirl #selfportrait_society #pr0ject_portrait #dpmagfaves #unvaeljournal #fineartphotography #photomanipulation #photoshop #photoshop_creative #e_i_a #artofselfportraiture #portrait_drama #selfportraitmag

This isn't your ordinary bum shot. It is a story of walking in new shoes for Raya, visiting everyone's houses for a plateful of ketupat (no rendang, because, too spicy), and a green money packet only to come back home to discover also, an arm (two, in fact) full of tiny mosquito bites. It is a story of waking up way too early to find that we can't wear our favourite Ninja Turtles t-shirt, no, but instead, this kebaya top and batik sarong that Dada painstakingly sewed together the night before, when we were busily watching the fireworks light up the sky in hundreds of magnificent, sparkly flowers, while playing pop-pop with Atuk. It is a story of people shouting all around us; from talking over the phone to Angah, who couldn't make it home this year; from Jiddah who discovered she'd burnt the cookies yet again; from the laughter surrounding Aki's jokes, (mind you, we've heard these jokes so many times before, we don't know what's funny about them but we laugh nonetheless) and from everyone who is talking to Moyang, because she refuses to wear her hearing aid. It is a story of joy, and sadness too, sure, but mostly, it is a story of tradition. So, no, this is not your ordinary bum shot. It is how we celebrate our Raya. Every single year. . . . Welcome to our [momtogsinmalaysia] loop! A group of us decided to get together to inspire one another and illustrate what being a Malaysian mother looks like to each of us. This month's theme is: FACELESS. Feel free to join along and tag your #momtogsinmalaysia or follow the hashtag for a bit of fortnight fun! Go to @spiritedtojapan next to see what she came up with!
