I recently had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the lovely Soh family who holidayed in Perth all the way from Singapore! Claire contacted me while they were still overseas to capture some family photographs in the stunning Swan Valley region where they were staying at Kellers Bed and Breakfast.
A lot of couples in particular from Singapore come to Australia for their pre-wedding photography and for family photographs, however, the Soh family were the first that had contacted me! I was so excited that a family from so far away had found me through the power of the internet and we quickly made plans to go to the beautiful Whiteman Park which is close by to where they were staying. They had plans to go to the Caversham Wildlife Park after our photoshoot so it all tied in perfectly!
We spent half an hour enjoying and exploring the stunning greenery and open spaces of Whiteman Park, in between their daughter excitedly pointing out various bugs and insects. As a country girl who grew up loving all creatures great and small I loved her enthusiasm and attention to detail for someone so young!
It was such an honour to have been chosen from all of the family photographers in Perth to capture these special memories for such a lovely family, I’m so excited to be able to share them with you and the beautiful review that they left for me down below!
“We are a family from Singapore and were going to Perth on a year-end holiday. So we were thinking of also doing an overseas family shoot while we were staying in Swan. We found Gemma from Fox and Luna Photography who proved to be very responsive right from the moment we first messaged her.
Gemma gave us plenty of support, giving us detailed directions of how to get to a particular area in Whiteman Park for our photoshoot. Before our trip, Gemma sent an e-mail to ensure that the photoshoot was still on. Even when we got to Perth, Gemma was ensuring that we knew exactly where to go that morning.
When we finally met Gemma, she came across as one with a very bubbly character. During the photoshoot, she was extremely confident of where to go and how to pose. The children had no problems understanding her and we ended up having quite a fun time during the photoshoot. We had lots of time to visit Caversham Wildlife Park after the photoshoot. We managed to receive our photos before we left Perth. It was a brainwave to have the package in digital images, so that you can just have the photoshoot and receive the digital images in a shared folder.
If you are like us, from out of town and going to be in the Perth area for a holiday and looking at a special overseas family photoshoot during the trip, we would highly recommend Gemma. It will all work out nicely with her around.
Thanks Gemma for everything!! Considering we didn’t even have a family photoshoot done in Singapore, this was extra special for us!! Everyone back at home have been singing praises of the excellently taken pictures!! We wish you every success in your passion for photography!!”
