Family Photoshoot with Essence Studios Singapore + Readers Promo Package

So in case you were wondering where we took all these gorgeous photos I'm currently using in my blog makeover design, we actually had an indoor family shoot with Essence Studios.

Essence Studios is a boutique photography studio along Killiney Road specialising in comtemporary portraiture, particularly family photography. They have studios in Hong Kong and Singapore, and offer a more dynamic, fun and interactive photoshoot which emphasizes a lot on each subject's individuality and personality. There is no posing, no waiting for you to put your hands here and face there... it is all about shooting the spontaneous moment and showcasing the beautiful relationships through photos :)

Happy family!
Squashed with love~
Papa and his girl
In matching clothes :)
Nom nom nom!
Some for you mama
Love Lil Pumpkin's expression here!
Cake fight!!!
Just me and my boy
Hello Kitty fun
I love them all! Essence Studios will actually have a short chat with you before the photography session to get to know you better. You are also encouraged to bring your own props or things that you love to the photography session. Anything goes! As you can see, we even went crazy and did a cake smash!! Oh joy! I've been wanting to do a cake smash for ages but was scared of the clean-up. Not to worry when you are at the studio... they don't mind the mess at all, so go ahead and bring your pets, bikes, food, water pool etc.

Essence Studios is different from the usual photography studios in that they also specialise in interior art products to complement and enhance your home decor. Using your photos, they can help you to create a wide range of personalised canvas or framed acrylic pieces to decorate your walls for years to come.

If you would like to have a photography session with Essence Studios, especially during this coming September school holidays, take advantage of the special promotional package for my blog readers. Quote "Sakura Haruka" to enjoy the Essence Experience offer {worth S$350} at S$88 and an additional 15% off their wall products.

Essence Experience
  • all consultation services
  • 1 hr photo-shoot session
  • all editing and artwork
  • viewing appointment
  • complimentary 7" x 5" framed image in the capture range
Rest assured that all their photographers are experienced with kids and families as they specialise in family portraiture. Our photographer, Esther, was very patient with our energetic Lil Pumpkin and kept her smiling throughout the photography session with snacks and play. I hope you will enjoy the photo-shoot as much as we did.
