Five years ago, she represented the country for Miss Universe. Three years ago, she found the best guy in the universe and married him. This time around, her universe will be revolving around their God’s little blessing and Shamcey will be facing a whole new world of challenges as a “Mother”. Lloyd and Shamcey will be seeing their little baby really soon and they’re all anticipating with joy.

During the Miss Universe 2015 finals where Pia Wurtzback won the crown for our country, it was very timely that we also had this maternity session for Shamcey. We had a small chat about the very controversial pageant and then headed off to prepare for the shoot.

So here are some of the photos from that shoot and it is just fitting to share these photos to open the year 2016.

I really enjoy shooting maternity shoots, these soon-to-be-mothers have this certain glow on their faces always.

After a long break from blogging, I had to jumpstart myself again to bring back the habit. I know there are tons of stories of life’s blessings to share however balancing family life, fatherhood, ministry and photography proved to be quite challenging. So just to stir things up and gather some inspiration, I’m starting with some eye-candies and more treasured moments.

I met both King and Kay from Singles for Christ. Both of them are faithful servants of God and leaders. Heart of a missionary. So when I saw that King proposed to Kay (FLYING TO AUSTRALIA), I knew this was going to be a very beautiful story to capture and share.

I loved everything about their wedding and while it was first time to work with some of their suppliers, I saw how passionate some of these people were. *wink* *wink*. But that’s only understandable and is expected. Wedding suppliers are here to help make clients make their dream wedding come into life. I also loved that most of their wedding guests were from the community. It just proves how much time they spent on building relationships not only with God but with their fellow community members.

Thank you King and Kay for the trust you have given me..  I am truly honoured to have witnessed and captured your beautiful wedding.
