First formal photoshoot

Last weekend we went for a photoshoot session with my online coupon.  Thought it was a good deal at RM160 for a 2-hour session, but there were better ones appearing later.  So how was it?  Argghhh not so good!  I'd hoped for a nice family shot or one with Jo Ern and me.  And I'd EXPECTED nice ones of Jo Ern by herself, maybe a nice one with hubby (well that's coz I'm the least photogenic hehe). 

What's this?  Why do we have sit here so long?

The problem was, Jo Ern refused to smile!  She had the same deer-in-the-headlights look for 90% of the session.  Different dresses, different props but the same facial expression on the model!  Either she was staring serious-faced at the photographer or totally engrossed in the prop and not looking up.  This was despite me, the maid and hubby calling out to her from behind the photographer.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that the photos taken during the two brief times she did smile would come out nicely.  She bawled at one time - who knows we might pick one of those too.

Can we go home now?

We didn't stay for the full 2 hours since all of us were getting tired.  After we got home, Jo Ern was playing and laughing the rest of the day!!  *arrrgggh*

In hindsight, I should have brought out my handphone or the iPad for her to play.  She has such a cheeky grin upon sighting these 'forbidden' items.  Ah well, at the very least it was an interesting experience.


  1. hehe, I'm sure the photographer will be able to work some magic on the photos:) and serious look is also cute on little kids.

  2. that's all right! I'm sure there will be some gd ones heh.. it really is a talent to get kids to smile and "pose" properly ;p

    looking forward to seeing the results!

  3. she was not familiar with the environment. Try outdoor next the park. She can room around . I think the cost is about rm300 for a few hours.

  4. I'll wait before having another photoshoot... in fact I'm not thinking of having another anytime soon haha. Hoping the photographer really can work some magic!
