A Little Something Something Revealed

30 Aug

Since the beginning of my pregnancy, I’ve toyed around with the idea of getting some nice maternity shots done to commemorate our journey as first time (soon to be) parents and as a reminder to Baby S how big mommy had to get just to give birth to her, heh. Ok I kid about the last part.

The idea probably came from the fact that till today we have yet to get our fancy studio wedding photos done because it was always one thing after the other that kept postponing it. Granted, 80% of it I can blame on the fact that our wedding got brought forward much earlier followed by I-need-to-loose-weight moments before I get photographed, followed by the husband not being around for the shoot…….you get the idea. I’m really not sure if our deposit and package is still valid at this studio (it’s been 3 years afterall!) but I’ve told my husband once this baby pops out and IF I get back into shape, we’ll try to get it done then. It’s as good as saying yea when pigs fly…….but we’ll see :lol:

Before I digress much, it was one of those days when I did a search for maternity photoshoot in Malaysia on Mr Google when I came across Asther Lau’s blog.

At a glance, I was quite impressed with her work. But to be honest, the one thing that stood out about her is the fact that she’s a female! Which obviously makes it a whole lot easier for someone who is shy like me :D

A few emails bounced back and forth before we decided to engage her and here’s the end results :) I must have booked her at least 5 months in advance. Talk about being overly excited about a maternity shoot eh?

This is only the first batch and I’m already very happy with the outcome. She has at least managed to make me look decent in the photos, lol. It was my first time at a photo shoot session (was nervous as hell as I’m a very conscious person but she managed to put us at ease) and this was probably the husband’s third or fourth since someone is a part time talent and has the experience :D

Definitely one of my fav!

LOVE this shot and will definitely frame it up in the baby’s room :D

I adore this too but it kinda looks like the hubby is grabbing my you know what, haha.

There are a few other photos that I absolutely love but since they’re rather indecent, I shall refrain from putting them up, haha.

Thanks Asther for these wonderful photos. Can’t wait for Batch 2 of photos.

That said, I highly recommend a maternity photoshoot with the hubby before the little one arrives. It creates a great bonding session and it’s definitely something you can look back at years from now and be very happy about a simple thing like this :)

If you love Asther’s work, hop over to her site here and book a slot today!

    Hi there! I’ve been following your blog since I came across it some months ago while googling for info on maternity clothes. Your blog is really lovely and I enjoy reading it. Wishin u all the best and a safe delivery! I’m preggers too, due in early Nov. Maybe next time we can exchange baby tips? :-)

    • TheMissusBlogs 01. Sep, 2010 at 2:20 pm #

      Hiya! Hey I remember your comment from before. Hope you’ve managed to find nice maternity clothes in PG :) Thanks so much for reading my humble bloggie. And thanks for the best wishes too. And yes we MUST exchange baby tips. Good luck with your pregnancy too.

        Yup, got them from a shop called 9 months, not many available but there’s 1 at The Curve, Jusco Bkt Tinggi and also newly opened Empire Subang. Their clothes are really nice but expensive. What the heck, I “invested” in some lah! :-)

        I’m having a boy BTW… Probably will drop you an email next time or we can exchange FB add — easier that way. I don’t blog as frequently (or as nicely!) as u do :-)
