Outdoors Family Shoot at Gardens by the Bay {East} ❤

So after much postponement and rescheduling, we FINALLY fixed a date with good weather to have our annual family photo-shoot with Alwyn! Woot woot!!

I had almost given up on having one for 2016 but God is good and we arranged with Alwyn to meet up one Sunday at Gardens by the Bay East. On one of our cycling trips at East Coast Park, we cycled all the way there via the Park Connector Network {PCN} and found it to be lovely spot for photo-taking with the beautiful scenery and relaxed atmosphere.

It isn't as crowded as Bay Central Garden with the popular main attractions like the Flower Domes and Supertree Grove and you can still capture the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands as backdrop.

It was a pretty short, casual photo-shoot. Nothing pose-y or contrived... very much Alwyn's style. We just knew we wanted something to show our current fit family lifestyle so wanted it outdoors and only decided on our outfits that morning from something we already had in our wardrobe!!

We also decided to cycle to the photoshoot area from East Coast Park so arrived looking a little disheveled and sweaty haha.

Alwyn was amazing, as always, in capturing a lot of our spontaneous family moments. Love love love how all the photos turned out... I even bothered to go and print some to frame up haha ❤

Also glad that the boy was still able to carry me up like this and still look pretty relaxed! haha..

The photoshoot was after our trip to Hong Kong where I binged on 鸡蛋仔 {egg waffles} EVERY DAY and took some time off training so I definitely wasn't at my fittest nor leanest {at 15% body fat composition} anymore...

... and I really wanted to have film memories of that period but never mind, I don't need to be at my fittest or leanest to show how blessed I am with this little family of mine (*≧▽≦)

These are fond memories to treasure and look back on..  

to see how far we have come through the years...

... and how Lil Pumpkin has grown from a wee little bub to a beautiful, precocious, and kind young lady. 

But no matter how much she has grown, she will always be her daddy's little girl.

Our darling baby girl ❤

This is one of my fave shots actually and perfectly shows how strong and supportive the boy is to us.

He has been there for me through so many milestones {and dark periods} of my life and I know he will be there for us both in the future too.. 

Love you, Poogeo.

Love you both a lot.. ❤
