This would be our 2nd family photo session and the 5th photo shoot collectively so we thought we knew what to expect. Initially we were a little skeptical as it is a new set up. In addition, we were told to bring our own props for the photo shoot. It was unexpected as we thought most studios would have their own props. Lastly we were told to wear colourful clothes as we will be photographed entirely with a a white backdrop. Again we were unsure if a white backdrop is sufficient . What if we need to have trees, moon, stars as the backdrop?
It did not take long for us to get wacky in the studios. Surprisingly there is no ' please stand here' , 'wear this set of cloths' , 'look at the camera' kind of instructions. Instead, it is all about spontaneity and being ourselves during the photo shoot. We actually love the idea about bringing our own props as it means we are comfortable with what we are posing with... Afterall it is just another hour of play for us which we obliged without hesitation.

If you are looking for a 'professional' and 'great with kids' photographer, Ryan from Orange Studios come highly recommended.

And the honest truth... the final output had far exceeded our expectations!
Here are the final pictures we had shortlisted. We absolutely love the quality and the brightness of each photo. The white backdrop actually works well as it brings the attention to the core subjects. If you check out the smiles, you could see that each smile is spontaneous. It is one thing to make us smile and it takes a higher skill set to capture it. We must say Ryan had scored well on both accounts.
For a minimalistic, natural Fun loving family photos, Orange Studios will always be on top of our list!

Daddy love the photo taken with Mommy here. It has been quite a while since he had a decent photo with Mommy and he is glad that this session yields a few good shots. Even though Ryan's forte may be family photography, he does captured a lovely couple moment here.

The number of photographs or size of canvas are clearly stated on their menu, thus eliminating hidden fees. As for services, we rate them excellent. They were prompt to our queries and the numerous requests to amend the photo we choose for the canvas print. We even has a mock up how the canvas would look on our walls before deciding on the final version. To top it off, Ryan and Wini personally delivered the canvas and the photos once it is done.
