The idea is simple. The birthday kid has his picture taken in the same place or doing the same thing every year. I did not expect it would be that difficult but it was. It really was. Until now, I don’t know which set-up will we carry on annually. Maybe we will try to replicate all shots until Aki becomes cooperative.
These are what we tried
Back-to-back picture with Dadeh —>Fail
Back against the grills —> Major Fail
Wearing Dadeh’s Wedding Barong —> Major Fail but I really think this is cute. The expression on his face gives the picture a story.
Topless against a blank wall —> So-so. This is the best among 30+ shots in my camera. He would not let go of the swim diapers. I am liking the topless idea for boys because I would not have to pressure myself to look for the same type of shirt every year.
Topless shot on top of the stairs and on the 9th step —> another so-so because both shots are pure “chamba”
The last and the least possible to replicate next year, a silhouette shot.
Hopefully next year, Aki can finally stay still for the camera.
