Welcome to P.S. I Love You Photography!

About the Photographer
Patricia has three beautiful children who keep life exciting (and crazy at times). More than eight years into the trade, she has worked with many families all over the world, from tiny little newborns, toddlers to teenagers. She appreciates the friendships formed with many of them returning with their second child and third children. It is always a beautiful blessing to be invited to photograph some of these precious journeys; welcoming a new little baby, celebrating that first birthday milestone and more. Nothing makes her more delighted than to capture the essence of a little someone. Her passion in creating pieces of art began as a child as it manifested itself once again when she had her first born in 2009. From making her own props to painting pieces of wood to create the perfect distressed and rustic feel for her backdrops, she enjoys putting together various concepts with curios collected from far and wide. Traveling makes a fantastic excuse to hunt and ship back a unique piece of prop just to complete the look she envisioned. Unconventional and free spirited, she embraces new ideas and is not afraid to try something new.

Mum-preneur transforms home into photo studio for children

Reported by Koe Ting Mei

A young mother’s original intention to capture the growing up moments for her first-born gradually became so addictive that she transformed her home into a photo studio equipped with props, backdrops and special lighting equipment. Her business has now allowed parents to capture the important moments in the lives of their children.

Patricia Seng has certainly not spared any effort in her business. She left nothing to chance. Her fine eye for detail led her to construct her own props, designing and sewing her own backdrops. She even converted a floor of her house into a studio, thus ensuring that her business was a professional setup.

Patricia was a full-time homemaker before embarking on this venture. She and her husband who works in business logistics have three children aged between 3 – 8 years old. They stay in a cluster house in Gerald Drive.

Patricia worked in marketing before marriage and had no prior experience in photography. Her decision to not miss any moment of her first-born son’s growing up years made her purchase a DSLR camera.

She left her job as her first child turned one to become a full-time homemaker and decided to spend time on her photography hobby.

“To ensure that the photo came out nicely, I would personally sew the beanie hat for the child to wear,” Patricia said. “During this period, I lost track of the money I spent on props, cloth for the backdrop and the lighting equipment. Friends shared that they liked the photos I took and began asking me if I could take photos for them. I then asked myself if this could actually be a possible small-time business?”

The answer was “PS I Love You”, a photo studio which Patricia set up six year ago specialising in taking photos of newborns and young children.

“My children observe me working at home and know the value of money. Hence they will help me to offer drinks to my guests and even assist me in constructing the props.”

Taking photos in the park during confinement period

The features of a newborn changes on a daily basis and this young mother, within the first ten days of her confinement period, was at the park to take photos to capture every moment.

Patricia shared that photos for newborns are best taken within the first two weeks of birth because the child is quieter during this period and more ‘co-operative’. But what is more important is that the child’s facial features changes every day.

She revealed that in order to capture the natural light setting in the afternoon, she once went to the park three times to take photo of her first child. The son cried so badly in the first two rounds which resulted in no photos being taken but the third round was a great success.  Her son was only ten days old.

Her youngest client was a three day old newborn whom the mother brought straight from the hospital to her studio for their photos to be taken.

Patricia shared that in recent years, parents have approached her to take photos of a cake smash theme. These parents find it adorable to see their children have their faces and hands all covered in cake as a result of smashing cakes. Patricia disagrees with this view though.

“To take this photo requires a waste of resources as the cake is purchased only to have the child smash it and throw it away. I used to accept assignments of this nature but chose to stop doing so in order not to convey the wrong values to children.”

“A picture paints a thousand words,” Patricia shared, “Besides taking photos to preserve the memories of a child’s growing up years, I will also find images of children growing in poverty-stricken countries and share these with my children to inculcate in them important life-values.”
