SHANGHAI FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
Alfred contacted me for a SURPRISE family shoot… and i just looooooove surprises! He had Yantin and the two little ones come to Shanghai Century Avenue Park and asked me to pose as a street vendor trying to sell photos. He had a little note written to wish her Happy Birthday and that the photographer handing her the note was not random. She entered the park and i pretended to be an annoying vendor: would you like some photos!!??? How about a photos session??? She politely rejected and walked to the ticketing area for renting the little cars. I followed and started pestering her and she was at a loss. Alfred took my poster and said ” Hey Yantin, this is in Chiense can you help me out here?”
It was one of the COLDEST days in Shanghai. But the cold didn’t seem to bother the children – they just RAN! And laughed and played!!! I always ask parents to do the photography session around an activity that they often do and love. This is how they would normally spend a weekend afternoon in the park. They lived right opposite the park! It was an honour and joy to capture a slice of their lives.
Everyone trying to do the “crab-walk”
I just love this series with mother and daughter. Chen Chen is just absolutely ADORABLE and you can just see and feel how much she ADORES her mom!
