Djuan: kiddie portrait session

Djuan will be turning one next month so we had a quick portrait session with him a couple of weeks ago. When Pheng and I were discussing (through text) where to do the portraits, we had a couple of outdoor locations in mind. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate, so we ended up doing the session indoors at the 3rd floor of the Bahay ng Alumni in UP. (We did Pheng's maternity portraits in UP last year, so I was kinda hoping we could do Djuan's portraits in the same location.) We were able to get nice light, which is one of two things I need in a location to do a kiddie portrait session (great backgrounds are not as important as good lighting for me). The second thing I need is for the location to be comfortable for the model, especially when the model is a baby or a toddler. As luck would have it, we didn't get that that day. When we got to the Bahay ng Alumni, the rain had stopped, but the air felt like we were in a sauna. Being at the top floor of the building made it even worse. We were able to spend about 10 minutes of shooting, before poor Djuan started getting very uncomfortable and fussy. We headed downstairs and shot a few more photos in front of the building until we could no longer take the heat.

We did manage to get really nice shots of our handsome little model. Take a look.:)
Love the hearty laugh!:D
A cute shot of the family.
Look at those eye lashes!

I will be seeing Djuan again on his birthday party in April. Can't wait!:)
