like any other pregnant mommy, i'd want a professional to capture images of me and my tummy. but, i thought to myself, why not make my own photoshoot?
so i did. :D and you can do it yourself, too!
here's a list of what you need:
a good camera
room with wide windows
time (between 9am-11am)
cloth (big enough to use as costume)
cloth (bigger enough to use as background)
and last but not the least, an assistant a.k.a. your photographer (in my case, my niece - who was also my hair stylist)
i fixed my room a bit and turned it into a makeshift studio. prepped everything then worked on me - took a quick bath, put on make-up (while my niece was braiding my hair), wore my bandeau and cycling shorts, then figured out how to wear the cloth.
one quick tip before you do this: check out some pegs. i didn't get to see any inspiration before we started so it was pretty much an anything-goes shoot. but it turned out great! i just need to install photoshop and edit the pix.
check out the unedited photos from my diy shoot!
and here i am with my niece ayel, who was really helpful and game!
the pix just need editing and they're good to go! whatcha think? :D
total cost: php20 for the white cloth (the bigger cloth is a blanket, hihi).
