Let me introduce you to an amazing woman who will light up any room she walks into. Sharon is a dynamic lady who has lived in several cities around the world; she arrived in Singapore just a few months ago and has quickly settled into life here. When she called me to book her glamour photoshoot I could tell that she is someone who is motivated, positive, and who pursues her goals with bags of energy and good humour.
Sharon booked her session because she wanted to get some fresh photos for her online dating profile. As we talked about the different looks, hair and makeup that Sharon wanted in her glamour photoshoot, I realized how important your profile photo is in creating a powerful first impression. It’s your personal brand – whether it’s a corporate headshot for LinkedIn, your mugshot in your company’s website/brochure, your profile picture for online dating or simply your Facebook photo. Pitching yourself to just the right target audience is essential if you want to make it to ‘Round Two’, and best achieved with the most flattering but realistic photos of yourself.
See what you think of Sharon’s glamour photoshoot. She started off with a casual day-time look progressing to more glamorous throughout the session. I think she absolutely rocked her photo session with her outfits, attitude and positive energy. Afterwards she shared her favorite photos online saying, “I’m so happy… I’ve never felt so pretty!”
Sharon – hair & makeup, lighting and posing are part of what goes into making a gorgeous portrait. But the most important part is YOU: your confidence, sense of fun, authenticity and good humour are what makes them unique and undeniably beautiful. Keep me posted on Round Two!

There’s no better way to celebrate a relationship than to capture it with some intimate images. Whether it’s a Valentine gift, an engagement, a birthday or anniversary present, the photographs that we capture during your couples shoot will give you a lifetime of smiles. I’ve recently had the pleasure of photographing two gorgeous couples who had special occasions to celebrate.
Worth the drive from Malaysia
Natalie booked a surprise couples shoot for Carl, who was celebrating his birthday the day of the photo session. While Natalie was having her makeover done with the fabulous Gayathri Menon, I photographed Carl. He wanted some professional headshots done for work as well as some professional headshots for his second job as a DJ. Carl was completely comfortable in front of the camera and I think you’ll agree that he looks like a professional model as well as a very sophisticated DJ!
Natalie then stepped in front of the camera. She also wanted some headshots for work as well as some glamour portraits, so we spent the next hour creating exactly the looks she wanted. Her looks were a mixture of Hollywood siren and Audrey Hepburn and she certainly conveyed some vavoom that morning!
We finished the session with Natalie and Carl together, capturing some relaxed and romantic portraits. I caught a glimpse of the mutual respect, love and admiration that they have for each other, and although they have been together for many years they are still like young lovers. The romance was definitely in the air during this session and I was privileged to catch such an intimate glimpse of them together.
First photos since their wedding
More recently, Felicia and John came to the studio for their couples photo shoot – they wanted some romantic photos to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Felicia said it had been many years since they had some proper pictures of themselves taken, and thought that the last ones were taken at their wedding!
Felicia was thrilled with her beautiful makeover; she works full time and rarely gets the chance to experience such pampering. The photo shoot was full of laughter and jokes, and was over far too quickly. Felicia told me that they are going to put their portraits up on their bedroom wall – I hope that they bring Felicia and John lots of pleasure and happiness for many years to come.
