We live in an age where taking photos of your children and documenting their milestones is as easy as pressing a button on your smartphone. For a growing number of parents though, having an actual photo shoot with a professional photographer is another experience altogether. Not only is it the perfect excuse to play dress-up, but it's also your chance to get beautifully-shot photos to put on display for everyone to see.
If you’re planning a photoshoot with your kids, it’s great to have a theme so your photos look consistent but unique—some even hire stylists! For a hassle-free experience, why not try concept studios?
Unlike regular photography studios, concept studios have themed sets complete with props and wardrobe, so all you have to do is show up with your best pose! Check out these three options located in Metro Manila:
Baby Love Studio
Packages start at Php3,000
Studio Namu touts itself as the first ever photo studio in the Philippines to offer different themed rooms in one place. They have more than 60 designs like a coffee shop, children’s bedroom, a vintage living room, cozy kitchen, and more! It’s best for families and older kids. The only downside is, unlike other studios, you have to hire your own photographer as they only provide studio rental. (For a list of newborn photographers, click here.)
Studio Namu is located at 4F Sir Thomas Square Bldg, # 18 Matalino St., Quezon City. Visit their Facebook page, or call +632 263-1376 or +63 937-3742739 for inquiries.
The Concept Room
Packages start at Php8,500
This is the newest venture of Charisse Tinio, the woman behind Nice Print Photography. The Concept Room opened in October 2016 and since then has already had a number of celebrity clients, including Jackie Forster and Sunshine Dizon who both had their family shoots in the studio. Former beauty queen Shamcey Supsup recently had her maternity shoot here as well.
They have 12 themed rooms and more than 70 themed walls that can cater to different types of shoots, from maternity, prenup, and newborn. “We will also be adding 8 new themed rooms by September 2018,” says Charisse. Kids will like the safari, circus, children’s bedroom, and cowboy sets, but if you’re looking for more, they also have various props and costumes for the little ones so you can create other themes for your shoot.
The Concept Room is located at 5 San Antonio St. Kapitolyo, Pasig City. Visit their website, call 0977-8291021 or email email@example.com for inquiries.
