Were you worried about the ‘pre-wedding shoot’ trend that has now become “a must” for every couple, and you wondered whose idea was that? Now brace up! – Stay seated and wait for what’s about to hit you.
Another emerging trend that seems like it has come to stay as well is the ‘birthday shoot’.
You must have seen a lot of them already on Instagram and Facebook.
In this social media age, its a given that every celebration should be marked with beautifully captured photos, displayed before the eyes of the world on social networks; The more reason why all kinds of shoots – birthday shoot, baby bump shoot, post pregnancy shoot, will be around for a long time.
I’m supposed to dwell on birthday shoots anyway.
This happens prior to the celebrant’s big day (Birthday).
Days, weeks or months before the date, the hunt begins for professional photography studio and a carefully selected photographer well-versed in his craft – you don’t want to mess up the single opportunity you’ve got slay! You’ve waited so long for this.
Arrangements are also made for birthday photo attires (could be more than one).
All of it is aimed at having an exquisitely beautiful birthday shoot & breaking the internet.
On the D-day, highly anticipated birthday photos with a strong resemblance to a fashion magazine spread, are released on IG & Facebook.
Series of flawless pictures & ‘never-seen-before’ elegant outfits serenade the screens of friends & followers, enough to convince people that you are indeed destined to be a model.
And no! I have not mentioned Photoshop. *lip sealed*
The birthday photos usually go along with a well-crafted simple birthday caption or a long speech detailing the story of your life. Words along the lines of, “thanking God for making it possible to see today…” scratch that! We know that you’re all about launching your well-planned birthday photos, *clears throat*, sorry, declaring your birthday with a big fashion statement. It’s typical to see a few mentions of a glam squad – in a typical celebrity manner.
