Words can’t express what I felt when I first saw her on the nursery window. It’s a different feeling when I had my first child. This time it’s more like at ease, maybe because being a father for the first time is a bit terrifying in a sense, ’cause who knows about parenting and I never been one. I know it’s a pain according to my Mum (sometimes, I know she’s just kidding) so having a 2nd child seems like having my next roller coaster ride, I already knew what to expect, well it’s not as simple as that but you get the riff. I always wanted to try a newborn photo shoot but never had the chance. I had some request but I’m always reluctant to do it on someone’s baby, feels like they’re too vulnerable for stuff like that, although I have seen some photographers doing some over the top poses to the new born babies, and seem like the little one can handle it. An expert told me that the bone of a newborn is more flexible than of a, let say a 4 year old child. Still feels like child exploitation to me, maybe I’m just worried how a baby can handle those poses with their soft fluffy arms and legs, then I realized that all those poses are natural poses, they’re not like something only a contortionist can do, but still a lot of responsibility and care must be present to this kind of project. My wife is really excited on doing this project and she had bought the baskets we used for this photo session. We also shop for the most comfy hypo-allergenic towels we can find, we all know that babies are prone to allergic reaction to almost anything. So there you go, our simple newborn photo project of our 2nd baby Kailin. Hope you like it and hope she likes it as well. We love you Kailin Jei and this is for you. Continue reading
One early morning of July I saw Renz wide awake. Usually I always wake up earlier than him but this time he is really awake and full of anticipation. He told me that Med (St.Martin CEO) approved his sponsorship. We are both stoked about the awesome news so there’s no time to waste, we right away thought of making promotional shots for him but we still don’t know where it might end up. We’re like Yusuki Takeo(Green G) & York Uno tag team. For those who’s not familiar with Yusuki Takeo a.k.a. Green G, he’s one of the best BMX photographers of all time he is know for photos on BMX Plus Magazine. And York Uno is one of the top ranking BMX Flatland rider in the world. OK back to the promo shots, we’re not as close compare to them but we feel like we are and we have our own style. These are just few of the shots I’ve taken and there are a lot of good photos from the set. I’ll just keep them for the rainy season.
