my long vacation -- becoming a father 4

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce that I am going to be a father this month (around end of this month)!!!!!

That’s why I am taking a long long vacation from April to June, I don’t want to be away or working when the baby arrives. I was so busy last few months — non-stop shooting from last Oct to March, followed by all the post – processing and album work, then I started to relocate all the furnitures and rooms, not to mention, had a long list of baby things to buy. So happy that I made the decision to take this break and now I have more time for Xandra and prepare for the birth. Sorry to all nice couples whom I can’t help your wedding during this break

I am so glad and excited for the arrival of this little angel, this is a long – waited baby — a baby girl. I just took some photo with Xandra early this week at home — I was so worry that the baby would born earlier and I didn’t take any photo at all (what a shame for a photographer).  Here are some shots to share with you.

I am going to have an outdoor photo session next week with the help of a nice wedding photographer (guess who he is ?) , so looking forward to it !!!!

    Congrats, Simon! it’s never easy to be parents, so happy that you have made such decision!
    Your girl will be an inborn model, cos her father will take loads and loads of photos even before her birth!

  21. Hi Ka Sing (Prof. Leung)
    nice hearing from you again. It is almost 2 years since you helped me in the Phuket wedding.
    Xandra ‘s so beautiful that she doesn’t need any make up nor photoshop in the photo.
    For me, of course, I need a lot of photoshop la.

    Congrats again Simon.  Please tell Xandra she looked gorgeous in the photos.  She didn’t look pregnant at all, must have controlled her weight very well. I’m still trying to loose the excess weight I gained when I was pregnant.  You both looked great!!
