This was our 3rd shoot for 6-month old Clarisse, having previously done two other family shoots when she turned 1 month old and 3 months old. We just had another photoshoot 2 weeks ago when Clarisse turned 9 months old (more photos on that to come soon!), and there will be one more upcoming shoot in December when Clarisse turns 1 year old!
For this 6-month old shoot, we headed to Gardens by the Bay, the same location where I shot her brother (Cavan) last year when he was 6 months old too. It’s interesting to compare photos of both your children at the same age and at the same location. Of course, the entire shoot will not be the same, but it’s nice to have certain elements of similarity which the kids can look back upon in years to come.
It was a cloudy morning with rain forecasted in the morning in the south, but thankfully, the rain held up and we managed to proceed on with the shoot. It felt very serene on a weekday early morning in Gardens by the Bay with hardly anyone around (before the tourists start arriving), and it also felt somewhat peaceful having the whole Gardens to ourselves. This was a perfect scenario for the Koh family to have a family picnic and just enjoy one another’s company.
Shooting young kids is a challenge as they do not just sit there and pose for you. They usually just do what they like, and sometimes, they even cry! All you need is a little bit of patience, and sometimes things do eventually work out. Here are some lovely photos of Clarisse when she was 6 months old with her family! 😀
