Chasing Sunrise in Sanur Beach

It didn't happen very often that my clients would want a family photo session in the morning, but when I suggested Lisa and her  family to do morning photoshoot in Sanur, she said yes right away.  
So there our team picked them up at Hard Rock Hotel early in the morning to go to Sanur Beach catching the sunrise. 

The sun didn't come up yet when they arrived, Sebastian their youngest child, asked for a puppy and he kept repeating it, he really loved dogs and by chance it was very easy to find dogs in Bali, either   it was the wild dogs or the owned ones. So there Lisa and her husband, Nandor, were busy in turns seeking a dog for Sebastian. Meanwhile, their two daughters Poppy and Sophia were very quiet.

The most exciting moment was when they finally found a wild black dog, the entire family patted them. I was little bit surprised though the dog was one eyed blind, poor doggy! A photo shoot was ended and the most important thing was  Sebastian looked very happy found few dogs, although they just walked away as we approached them. The sunrise chase that morning turned out to be an early morning dog chase on the beach. What a beautiful morning.

Pre Wedding Photoshoot of Ari + Wahyuni

This young couple did a pre-wedding photoshoot at the beginning of last year, besides a photoshoot wearing traditional Balinese outfit in Denpasar, I also took them to explore Batur, Kintamani and Canggu, we did that all day before the sun was rising until dusk covered the sky. What an adventurous pre-wedding photoshoot. Now, in four days they would hold a wedding ceremony in Buleleng, the groom's origin village, with a Balinese traditional wedding ceremony. 

The beginning of monsoon, the wind was cheering everyday for all month long. 
The day wasn't as stinging as usual, the clouds were gathered hanging in the sky. 
The cold was embracing you as the dusk kissing the city. 
In the nights, we spend our time and looking for the warmth at our homes.

Fun Session with Lim Family in Sofitel Nusa Dua

I loved the Lim Family, a small family from Singapore. A short photosession that morning was done at Sofitel Nusa Dua, one of hotels I oftenly visited for family photo sessions. They really enjoyed that morning photosession despite it was little bit cloudy and sunrise had passed an hour ago, but the hotel's and beach's charm always inspiring for new ideas. The place may be the same but the moments created would always be different.  

This month is really a blessing  month for me, the month of Lebaran or Eid holiday has always been a high season month. Clients don't come only from the country but also from abroad.
