Maternity/Pregnancy Photo Shoot - Monica Weng-Ong
Less than 12 hours before the shoot, I was having an evening indoor volleyball game and got home after midnight after having my late dinner. The early morning shoot did not begin well as the wheel of my trolley came off before I reached the location. Somehow, I managed to find the nut back at the MRT platform but I knew it was not safe to be used anymore since my fingers were never as good as a spanner. I ended up having an extra three kilograms of load to carry. While waiting for Koreen to work on the makeup and hair, I got to play with the two dogs.
Doing an outdoor and on site home shoot were more fun than a studio shoot with plain background, although it was much more tedious with the carrying of heavy equipment and battling with the constantly changing ambient light. I knew Monica was creative and was confident of getting good shots.
The sun came out earlier than expected and it was my virgin visit to the Punggol Park. It was a simple park that was rather crowded. We had fun avoiding photobombs before we went back to Monica's house for the second part of the shoot with her dogs. Koreen then took great effort to draw a cute face on Monica's stomach while I dozed off on the floor.
As the shoot was overrun badly, I had to skip my beach volleyball game in the afternoon. Although work was more important, I felt very guilty for abandoning my buddies at the very last minute. Eventually, the quality of the photographs gave me comfort and I was proud of my hard work.
