Alice in Wonderland
08 Oct 2017STORIESBY SweetEscape

We all know her as a beautiful actress who has graced our screens with her acting performance, but with us - Alice is all about her journey as motherhood and what it means taking her bundle of joy along on a vacation in her most favorite place ever, Bali.

“We’re no strangers to the paradise that is Bali. We actually went there when Alita was in my belly. This time around, we were excited to bring and introduce her to this gorgeous nature in our own country. We loved to let her know all the best sensations of playing along with the sand, sea and the sun.”

Alice admitted to having her doubts and fears of traveling with her baby. It’s her first time taking the trip with Alita but this new momma had done her fair share of prep work prior. “I was scared but felt up to the challenge at the same time. I did a lot of googling, blog reading and even asking people around for traveling tips. You can say I was very well prepared,” she said.

All of her diligence sure paid off, because Alice and Alita had a total blast during their trip to Bali. Not only did everything went smoothly with Alita, but Bali too displayed the best weather during their time there. “Alita had a great appetite and we enjoyed our time there very much. It’s so worth it!”

Furthermore, Alice shared with us some tips that she learnt on how to have your own relaxing time while keeping your little ones entertained. “It’s all about waterplay so make sure you prepare floats, water guns and other toys. Kids always love water so keep them entertained while you relax and keep watch or simply play along with them,” she said. Waterplay keeps children active and have positive impacts to their appetite and immune system, she further shared.

We also asked Alice what her most treasured memories from her family Bali trip. “It’s watching sunset on the beach and visiting the zoo with Alvin and Alita,” she recalled. “To have SweetEscape photography service along means a lot to us. Especially since Alvin and I love photography, so there’s an extra appreciation for good holiday photo results,” she told us about bringing us along.

“Everytime I look at our Bali photos, I can’t help but be reminded of such a precious time that we shared as a family. It’s like going back to a happy place, a happy time in an instant. This gives me such positive energy and happiness, simply through a glance of a picture,” Alice said.

For this reason, Bali will always remain as a special place for this beauty. She told us, “I always come back to Bali, because of everything it has, from beautiful sceneries, chic accommodations and eateries, clean fresh air and that siesta ambiance that makes everyday feels like holiday!” Simply said, Bali is Alice Norin’s wonderland.

Real Stories from Real Clients: What Makes You Love SweetEscape?
28 Nov 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

The idea of getting someone professional to take your photos might not appeal to everyone, but here in SweetEscape we firmly believe that once you tried a SweetEscape session, you'd immediately fall in love with it and would want to book more. No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!

1. The First Timer

Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.

So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.

"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.

When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!

"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."

2. The 'Seasoned' Lovers

Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).

"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.

3. The Reporter

TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.

"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.

What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.

"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
