Even though my mum had to go in and out of A&E twice because of her wounds, and Lil Pumpkin was ill most of the time, overall, we still have loads to be thankful and happy for.
Alwyn had some time available last Saturday so we met up with him for a family photo shoot at Chinese Garden. The last time he took our photos was 2 years ago at the Botanics Gardens.. when I had long hair!!
She slept most of the Saturday away and thankfully woke up just before we left feeling much better. Even if she wasn't up for the shoot, we decided to still go ahead to meet Alwyn since it's not really that nice to cancel last minute and also, even if we couldn't get a lot of family shots with poor Lil Pumpkin, the boy and I could still get some couple shots. I would love that since our 12th anniversary is coming up next Monday and I can't even remember the last time we took nice couple shots together haha.
Alwyn has a new "Phase One System" that's supposed to be amazing. It's a medium-format digital camera, but it doesn't really matter to me since I think his photography skills is superb no matter which camera he is using :P He's the kind of photographer that replies on his skills to create a beautiful image, instead of Photoshop to get there and I really admire him for that. But anyway, he is really excited for it and if a camera can get Alwyn excited, it must be a damn good one.
As usual, he worked pretty fast post-processing and the night after we did the shoot, he sent me all the 41 images that passed his selection. I'm just gonna share a few of my favourites in this post...

Now, Chinese Garden seems a little abandoned and wasn't too crowded even though it was the weekend. Feel like going back again to explore it better and take more photos on my own.
Thanks once again for your time, Alwyn! It's been 4 years since we started having regular family photo shoots and I love seeing how we, especially Lil Pumpkin, have changed and grown.
