A big hi and hello to all of you out there! Thank you for stopping by Jenny Sun Photography's blog! This is my brand new blog space! So please make yourself at home, and have a good browse around. There is plenty more to come so check back often :) Just in case any of you are wondering who on earth I am, my name is Jenny Sun. I own a photography company that spans across Australia and Malaysia, particularly in the Sydney and Kuala Lumpur regions respectively. Though I'm not restricted to those areas! :) I love photographing just about anything under the sun, but my particular passion is for weddings and portraits - I seriously LOVE people, their stories, the beautiful relationships formed, and the tales that are told when that shutter goes off!

This blog is my personal and visual journey along this path of photography. Please hop on board the ride, comment along the way (I shamelessly love comments!), and lets see where the wind takes us :)

BBQ!

Light was slowly dipping below the horizon, and as far as my eyes could spread their view across, the entire world before me almost seemed completely saturated in a lustrous caramel-honeyed bath. The red that had risen so quickly during the day, finally peaked and deliberated at 38 degrees celcius, proving that the heat which married itself to the surface of our skins was not a figment of our imagination...the swelter was intense, real, and ablaze. Completely different from what had visited us daily the past few weeks where the heavens opened up and cried upon the land each evening...

However, I was not complaining :) It was perfect for the independence day celebrations that were lined up - and what was install? Food!! And plenty of it!! A BBQ to be more exact... I come from Australia, where BBQs are a great way to gather friends especially in summer when the weather is just blistering hot. I don't know why we aussies love it, but there is just something about the intertwining of heat, sun, lots of meat, salad, fire, charcoal-tinged food, and cold cold drinks in the outdoors that makes for an excellent social :)

I know merdeka day (this is equivalent to Australia Day for all you aussies out there!) was more than a week ago so this post is totally overdue (!), but they say that its better late than never right? ;) Here's what filled the air that evening - bear in mind that these are personal-life photos! Not official shoot photos! :) And just in case any of you ask - there was no flash used in any of the following shots :D

This is what the sunlight looked like just before the sunset, and before the BBQ started. I tried some backlighting thanks to some WONDERFUL inspiration from the USA :) Sometimes breaking the rules makes for some fun captures!! Click on it to see a larger version.

No BBQ feels right without iced-chilled drinks :) And thus here begins the socialising over the food :D A very cute little necklace that caught my eye that evening :) Even Padme got to join in on the fun!

Sorry, this shot is square because I chose to cut my head out of it. I do prefer to remain behind the camera :) Just a shot to let you see how much she has grown, though she is still small!
The night ended with a really fun round of taboo!! My favourite 'board game'. We learned how to play with just 4 people that night!! haha....

The boys didnt REALLY win. It was an old score card from a previous game.... ;)
