We celebrated the 1st birthday of baby Kaelyn at Flutes, and it was really nice to see all the familiar faces when mummy Lilian engaged us again for Kaelyn’s 2nd birthday celebration. What got us doubly excited was the opportunity to shoot at the lovely Salt Grill & Sky Bar, located on level 55 at Ion Orchard! Prior to this, we didn’t even know there was a restaurant right on top Ion Orchard! Full-length glass windows allowing natural light in is a major plus for venues, and immediately it got us thinking how nice it would be if we could return here one day to shoot a small-scale, intimate wedding too. As described in their website, “Salt Grill & Sky Bar is the perfect place to unwind with stunning panoramic views of the city and sea”, and we couldn’t have agreed any less! For those wondering about the cuisine, the restaurant serves only the best Australian produce in a clean and simple manner, and is helmed by Australian-born Head Chef Jake Kowalewski.
Back to the birthday party, we still remember how Kaelyn was so smiley at her 1st birthday party. Even till today after all the birthday parties that we have shot, she still ranks number 1 as the most smiley 1st year old baby! Babies at this age usually do not have such a long attention span and they may be smiley for a while, but they will inevitably get tired after a while. Fast forward a year later, we see a fuller range of expressions from Kaelyn, and our favourite moment definitely has to be her playing with her hair. We were laughing as we were snapping away as she looked like she was in an episode of Asia’s Next Top Model! 😀
