A very exciting day for the family as we're able to confirm that, yes! we're indeed having an addition to our family. We're in awe as we finally confirmed the heartbeat coming from Cali's tummy. What made it extra special was the fact that we're able to recover from our last year's tragedy of a failed pregnancy.
So after the good news as much as we wanted to celebrate, we rushed to Heirloom for our debutant's (Micah) pre event shoot. It was our first time to do the shoot in that venue with minimal information about the place. Good enough when we arrived, the owner, Mr. Juco was a member of Couples for Christ so we have something common to talk about. Based from our conversation, he's just into metalworks, designs and arts and wasn't intentionally making his place as a pre-event location shoot as a business. A good thing about the place was that if we're finding it hard to see a good location in other pre event venues, here, there's a lot of space to shoot from. I think there's too many angles and spots that you can't fit all of your planned shoots just in a day to capture everything.
One of the things I realized in this shoot was the importance of team work. With all the suppliers working in an event, for this example, a debut, every role is important and that everyone is equal in terms of the value they add to the shoot. I remember one photographer who was featured in Manila Bulletin that no one should feel above the other event suppliers. Meaning, even if you're the most expensive photographer, you can never put yourself on a pedestal and snob the other suppliers.
So for us, in order to produce a good photo, we need to work with: the Stylist, Make Up Artist, Models, Videographer and the Venue Owner and of course the subject.
Quite unusual for our debut shoot is that our model gets her energy from vodka which worked out well as she was able to overcome shyness when projecting in the camera.
We packed up by about ten in the evening already. As if the day wasn't long enough yet, we needed to rush back to Laguna to deliver the photos to one of our wedding clients.
