It has always been a tradition in my family to celebrate the important dates of the year. Birthdays, anniversaries, mother's day, father's day. a getogether is always a must- either dinner or lunch. and also gifts, no matter how small, or handmade..something to tell our parents and loved ones that they mean the world to us.
I received a bouquet of Tulips from my husband this year and a bouquet of roses each from Tia and Riz and later, we had a big family dinner with my parents and my brother's family.
I managed to squeeze in a mom and daughter shoot with Tia. It's kind of like for a Mother's Day shoot for Sabbytia as well, to promote my mother and daughter tutu sets. it wasn't a high budget photographer kind of thing- my husband took the shots. He has this hidden talent that there are many lovely shots despite the fact that it was already late afternoon and it was about to rain..and the whole shoot took only 10 minutes!
Shooting a toddler or a young kid needs some smart techniques. it's impossible to last an hour of photo session, so far that i have seen. you put on her costume, adjust your settings fast, and clickclickclick. don't ask for a proper pose. candids are always best with kids! Most of my tutu shoots are all done within say like...6-10 minutes max.
Here are some of the photos managed to be taken. i so regret that we didn't squeeze in a complete family shoot😔
Excuse the shoes! we're meant to crop them out hehe
I've always thought wearing a tutu at my age will make me look and feel like a chicken. but hey this isn't too bad after all! you just need the guts and it's best worn in famiy shoots. An another tip is...wear your adult tutu at the hips and not the waist for better effects!
