D.I.Y First Birthday Photoshoot

Aug 1, 2014 | Family & Life

It was not a bright sunny day, but still, we’ve decided to have a “Fun Shoot” for Baby Zee’s First Birthday Invitation and for a mom’s purpose of documenting every first of her son.

Things needed:

  1. Camera (We used our photobooth DSLR)
  2. Props (We used Balloons, Chalkboard Facts about Zee, Outfit sets for baby)
  3. Nice and Near Venue (Taken at Luneta, Manila City)
  4. Assistant (my sister, Rina)
  5. Stylist (yours truly hihi ^^)
  6. Photographer (didi “daddy”)
  7. Subject (Baby Zee – the birthday boy!)

Total Savings:

PHP 4,000 (Outside studio photo shoot cost around PHP 5,000, but since we ate dinner, pay the entrance {Children’s Playground}, gasoline and toll fees expenses we have around PHP 1,000 expenses that day, not bad.. right?)

Here are some tips if you’re planning to have a DIY photoshoot with your little one:

It is important to determine his happy time ๐Ÿ™‚

Sharing with you this quote that I’ve read before:
