We are starting a series of posts to feature people who stood in front of our cameras. They will share their experience being photographed by us. It’s always something we want to find out. What was going through their minds when the camera is pointed their direction? Read on…
Emmeline is highly sought after lawyer and I reckon the best looking in town too! We went to the same secondary school and Emmeline was the most popular girl. Not hard to understand why. She was a top student, athletic and very evidently, a natural beauty.
Why did you signed up for a glamour shoot with Louis Pang Studio?
I’m turning 40. Mum’s turning 60 and grandma will be 80 soon. We thought it is a great idea the three women have beautiful memories of ourselves by the right photographer.
Do you have any prior experience of being photographed? If you do, please tell me about it.
Did lots of salon-style shoots when I was a teen. Had my fair share of studio photography too. They were boring. The photographers were very authoritative. “Look here. Turn there.” I didn’t enjoy them at all.
Do you have any concerns about having your picture taken?
Not me but my mum and grandma took a bit of convincing. They thought their were too old to be bothered. I told them how good you were. They relented but remained skeptical.
When you step onto the set with Louis, what was going through your mind?
I had total confidence that you will make me look good. I had no doubts. Mum and grandma liked how warm and gentle you were. They said they felt comfortable around you and you guided them on how to stand, lean, pose. Their experience with you changed their mindset towards photography completely. They felt so good about themselves after the shoot. We went for a family trip immediately after the shoot. They usually hated family members snapping pictures of them, yet that day, they were totally comfortable about being photographed. You’ve given them new found confidence. I must add you have an amazing team working together, giving everyone a great time.
When you first saw the before-and-after picture, what was your reaction?
Mum and grandma got so many phone calls from the family when the pictures went on Facebook. Everyone said they look absolutely beautiful. It warms their hearts to receive so much attention and kind words from people around them. Thank you Louis!
