we love everybody



Derek was very punctual and personable – he came prepared with more than required. He also handled my fussy baby with such care that my baby slept through the shoot and I was so surprised as he usually cries alot. The pictures turned out great as well! Thank you Derek for your professionalism.

About 7 weeks ago we have had our newborn and family photoshoot at the comfort of our home with mypreciousdiary for almost 3.5 hrs!

Derek casted his baby coaxing magic and managed to make my baby sleep through the entire session, even during the period when she was overdue in her feed. It’s amazing because she is already 16 days old and already not sleeping as much as a newborn! Derek also didn’t rush through the photoshoot at all, even though these sessions are usually just 1-1.5hrs long.

Derek also did his best to deliver the edited photos within the timeframe we needed, based on the edits we have requested for. Appreciate his tremendous efforts and eye for details! The last surprise was that he even personally delivered the final products to our home!

Overall we had a very positive experience with Derek from mypreciousdiary and we highly recommend his newborn and family photography session~

I am very grateful to be able to engage Derek @mypreciousdiary for my newborn photoshoot. It was very last minute and didn’t expect to get such a talented, very kind and patient photographer.

I would recommend him to anyone who ever ask me, believe me you will be amazed by the way he treats your baby. So calm and very very patient 🙂

I am very satisfied with the result too, it was all so pretty and it took me a very long time to decide. Ended up he gave me a few bonus photos, what a kind person he is 😌

Derek is the ultimate baby whisperer, our newborn was so calm despite the several outfit and prop changes, and did not fuss whatsoever.

I felt very much reassured that we were in good hands. Thoroughly enjoyed the photoshoot process and seeing all the lovely shots brought to life!
