This Birthday photoshoot with Dr Oyindamola was a blast, we were recommended to her by Vivacious Concept, a makeup artist that has worked with on a project for Erniorla Olusoga, a gospel art. Her polite manners were outstanding that at a point I got tired of her addressing me a Sir! Sir! Sir! because, it will prevent me from gelling quickly with her which is very important to get those good poses out of her. I had to persuade her to bring it down a bit, but the point is she is a polite being that respects people a lot which is a good thing about her and a reflection of her heritage. Our negotiation didn’t take much time, her booking was made and immediately a date and time was set for the shoot.
The day we were waiting for came and to the glory of God it met us alive, she was punctual as she kept to time. She was really ready for the session like she also brought some props along with her to help her pictures come out better. Her dresses were looking very nice and they were perfect on her, like she was ready to go.
Proper preparations were going on when she came in and it made it all easier because we were able to access her cloths which would help us decide what to do for her, what color of background and all, it’s really a big thank you for her punctuality, it helped made thing faster and bit easier.
As a professional photographer, a birthday shoot should look normal but getting to shoot Oyindamola was fun, One joy of a photographer in every shoot is when the client being shot works hand in hand with the photographer perfectly like it was all planned, she was fully packed and prepared with different styles for her photo that getting to end her shot seemed hard because I was getting more than what I expected from the shoot.
Getting to tell her happy story in picture for her birthday doesn’t need a broader explanation because the picture speaks it all, her smiles makes the picture more stunning and gorgeous, I and my team had a nice time during her session, it was fun, we achieved what we wanted, we got more pictures than expected, she felt very comfortable during her shoot, it was all a big success. And I am using this medium to say a very big thank you to her for giving us the opportunity to shoot her and also I appreciate my team for their support to getting the good job done perfectly.
