We all get excited about our FIRSTS. Who doesn't? That's why songs, movies, poems, etc, were made about a First Kiss, a First Love... Which reminds me now, oooh, this video is sooo going to reflect my age! hahaha! Who remembers this Classic Coke Ad which starts with the line "First time, first love, oh what feeling is this, electricity flows with the very kiss..." doesn't that get you singing?! haay kilig feeling... i'm sure this is gonna be my LSS the whole day, and so will yours! hahah! (see video below and enjoy!)
So going back to my topic, yes the firsts in our life are really very SPECIAL. Even at the studio, we do have more shoots for a client's First Pregnancy. But your SECOND pregnancy (or third, or fourth) is also very special and it would be really great to let your second, third or fourth child know how excited EVERYONE was for her/him, even their big sister/big brother.
Here are cute ideas for your Second Pregnancy Maternity Photoshoot:
8 year old big sister and 8 month pregnancy! Galing no?! =) But of course, not everyone can time their Maternity Shoot this way. If the ate or kuya is only 2 years old, wala pang baby bump at 2 months pregnancy, heheh... But! Don't be disappointed yet! Once you give birth, baby at 1 or 2 months can have a photo with ate/kuya who is 1 or 2 years old... or 3 months & 3 years old; 4 months and 4 years old.. you get my drift...
"I'm gonna be a big sister!" . This idea by the client is not only super cute, but it also makes the Ate/Kuya feel involved, and NOT left out about baby's coming. Which is really VERY IMPORTANT so your child doesn't feel "hindi na sya ang bida".
For our family, we really made adjustments for our 2nd baby. We made it a point that daddy gives more attention to Ate now that mommy is busy with baby. So Ate and Daddy are now very close =) We also involved Ate during the monthly pregnancy check ups by letting her listen to baby's heartbeat, feel baby kicking... Shopping is also fun idea to get Ate involved! We let her choose some items when shopping for baby's stuff. These are really simple things, but I think they helped a lot because my kids are sweet and loving to each other most of the time. Of course, fighting din every once in a while, but in general, very loving naman.
However, I think things get a bit different if baby has a KUYA =) While an ATE might be so sweet and excited to see baby, a KUYA will have different concerns. heheh...
This was just sooo funny! Kim (the mommy) and i were trying to be our sensitive-mommy-selves and tried to get Kuya involved in the Maternity Shoot, you know, so he doesn't feel left out, diba? But he really just wanted to run around and play! Hahah! I guess boys will boys. They don't really get all that mushy like us girls... Anyway, it was great to finally have him kiss mommy's belly after a couple of attempts.
This photo can be for any pregnancy, be it your first, second, etc. I call this the "Belly Wishes" =) It was just so touching seeing Shang writing the words blessing, beloved, brave, bright and bliss to describe her baby boy. Nothing beats the feeling of knowing you are loved.
Have a great week everyone!
Usually prenup shoots are done outdoors, but you can still have a Studio Prenup Shoot and achieve variety with different backgrounds and props.
Hazel and Carlo are both from Naga, so their Wedding will be held there with both their families. But most of the Wedding Preparations like their Wedding Invitations, Prenup Shoot, etc are done here in Manila since this is where they work.
See how we are able to give them a different look with the nice pink background, cute buntings, a balloon and a change in outfit.
They also wanted a Vintage feel so we chose a background to match the outfit they prepared.
The objective was to achieve various looks in the photos since Carlo and Hazel's Wedding Invitation is the Mini Book type. There are about 7 or more photos that can be featured there, so variety is key. What do you think? Mission Accomplished! =)
It was a Sunday morning, the grass was still quite wet from the previous day's rain. I think my brain was also a bit damp that morning! hahaha! But it was a sunny Sunday nonetheless, so we proceeded to lay down our picnic mat, some props and blue balloons to prepare for our shoot. All I knew was that I was meeting Aubrey (married name) and her husband for their Maternity Shoot. I usually meet my clients for the first time on the day of the shoot, so this wasn't supposed to be any different. When I saw Aubrey, I thought, wow she's so pretty naman! Looking at her flowy pink dress, I thought, yey what beautiful photos we would make! But it was only about halfway through the shoot when I realized that she was GMA Correspondent Aubrey Carampel! Eh kaya naman pala ang gorgeous nya!!! =) If your kids hog the TV with Disney Junior the whole day just like in our house, sila Doc Mcstuffins and Handy Manny lang siguro talaga ang mare-recognize ninyo agad!
So here's some of Aubrey Carampel's Maternity Photos =) ...
Aubrey and Errol are a really fun couple, madaming kulitan during the shoot, parang magboyfriend and girlfriend pa din, puro tawanan. I guess that's one of the secrets to their relationship -- enjoying each other's company. They were together 10 years before they got married and their happiness really shows...
Being a first time mom, Aubrey is nervous and excited about their baby boy. But Errol, as he shared with me, is even more nervous! He gets goosebumps just thinking about being a first time dad =) Don't worry, you'll be okay, we all learn along the way. One tip for dads: always ask your wife if she needs help. Sometimes, its the thought that counts. Most of the time, it won't stop with the thought! hahaha! Of course naman, you're not expected to breastfeed, heheh. But the simple stuff like preparing a bottle of milk, driving to Mercury at night for diapers, doing the grocery by yourself will really, really be very helpful! Of course, we wouldn't mind a massage from time to time... =)
Good luck as first time parents! I'm sure you'll have loads of fun, as you always do =)
