I used to work at Sears photo studio in Halifax around 2 years ago and 90% of my customer was parents with babies! Now I know  and can related when they said “Oh, I like that one better, It show her/his personality” or “I want that one, that’s how she/he smiles” or something like that, when I sat with them in front of the computer to look all their baby pictures I took that day. Sometimes, I just didn’t understand, for me that picture probably little bit blur, the composision was odd, or just simply the baby face wasn’t cute enough like other pictures in my opinion. BUT at the end they chose whatever they liked and as a professional photographer, as long as your customer happy, that’s enough and consider as success ^^. So, when I look all the pictures I took this afternoon, no matter how bad the quality (exposure, angle, etc) of the picture, I LIKE it just because Olivia so cute on that pic, haha.

We had so much fun during the photo session, I wasn’t prepare so much since this was our first professional photo session and I didn’t know what will going on. Turned out not so bad, I just went a bit crazy to made Olivia smiles.

After so long I refused to take a picture using my DSLR camera and getting comfortable with Handphone camera, it felt so good to be back to ‘heavy bulky blacky camera’ haha! Definitely will have more photo session with her in the future. Excited!

Olivia’s NOTE:

I didn’t know what’s mommy doing in the park. She kept calling my name and made a fake snizzing sound, I guessed she tried to make me smile, of course I smile, she was so silly. We had fun in the park, we go to this place so often, since I was a baby, errhh… I mean when I was a little baby, I am a big baby now. But today visit was a bit special, mommy let me sit on the ground, she even made me lay down on my tummy, She knew I hate this position but I gave it a try, actually I did it so I could had a chance to pull some grass though. haha.

Grandma looked so happy too, She made sure I wore my pretty headband. When mommy stopped looking at me through some funny black box, I snacking with Grandma. It called picnic in the park, I like it… I like drinking my milk and looking to the trees, they are so high and greeny.

Mommy said we will going out more often before the weather getting cold. I am looking forward to have fun with mommy and grandma in our next visit to the park!

Katakan Dengan Bunga

Adalah sebuah perkarangan dibelakang rumah Om dan Tante Go, salah satu pasangan senior ex Indonesia yang kami kenal di Toronto. Perkarangan dibelakang rumah tersebut yang biasa disebut backyard sangat nyaman dan asri karena tertata rapi dan dipenuhi oleh bunga-bunga aneka warna dan jenis.

Seperti pada umumnya dimusim semi maka acara bercocok tanam pun segera dimulai, tahun ini sedikit terlambat karena musim dingin yang enggan beranjak.

Perkarangan tersebut dilengkapi dengan sebuah patio yang cukup luas yang dapat menampung kira-kira 12 orang dewasa, dengan meja dan kursi dari bahan kayu berwarna cokelat dipandankan dengan cushion berwana merah menyala, menambah indah dan kenyamanan tempat ini. Bayangkan duduk disana ditemani dengan segelas cokelat panas dan sebuah novel yang sudah setahun belakangan ini tidak sempat dibaca. Ah, nikmatnya.

Pada musim semi ini sudah dua kali aku berkunjung kesana dan dalam dua kali kesempatan itu pula aku asyik mengabadikan beberapa bunga yang bermekaran saat itu. Bukan ahli flora apalagi pakar perbungaan, maka tak heran setiap kali sesekali aku perlu bertanya pada tuan rumah, bunga apakah gerangan ini yang sedang kupotret. Padahal waktu kecil cita-citanya pengen punya toko bunga, preeet!

Salah satu jenis bunga yang mencuri hatiku adalah bunga Peony. Bunga ini kuntumnya cukup besar dan kelopaknya berlapis sangat banyak. Jadi ingat iklan produk wafer waktu di Indonesia dulu “Ada berapa lapis? ratusan!!!” Bunga  ini konon mudah hidup dan punya beberapa varian warna, hanya saja kelemahannya apabila sedang mekar dan datang hujan cukup lebat maka sebentar saja bunga ini akan layu tertunduk dan mati.

Apabila suatu saat nanti punya rumah berpekarangan maka Peony akan menjadi salah satu penghuninya. Bunga-bunga lain juga cantik jadi mengingatkan betapa kita sungguh tak perlu rendah diri, karena bahwasannya Tuhan Pencipta kita maha Kuasa dan Dasyat, bunga yang hari ini mekar dan besok layu diciptakannya sedemikian Indah, apalagi kita anak-anaknya. Adalah cantik dan unik dengan gaya kita masing-masing.

Silahkan dinikmati foto-fotonya.

All photos taken by iPhone 4s with Instagram App and I was amazed by how iPhone 4s’s lens produces very nice bokeh. I tried to take some photo as close as possible to the object, kinda hard and need a lot of patient but all so worth it. You can check my other Instagram shot (mostly is baby picture now) 🙂
