Phu My Hung is a popular destination for couples wanting to have their pre-nuptial photos done. With the quiet neighborhood, a number of gardens, parks, and wide open space it the ideal place to have photos taken without worrying that you’d get run over by a motorbike. 😛
So it’s not unusual to see couples especially on weekends come in their cars with their entourage, photographer, and make-up artist set their own mini-studio by the side of the road, complete with a make-shift dressing room. I know, I know I’d have to take photos of that. 😛
So anyway, Saturday, we decided to have our own photoshoot for our friends Soki and Ryan who were expecting their first child. I don’t know if this has caught on in Vietnam yet but in some other countries, including the Philippines, a maternity photoshoot is not unusual. I did two myself for both of my sons. Both were done by my good friend, Ging Lorenzo, who is one of Philippines well-respected family photographer.
Our photographer for the maternity photoshoot is Armi Deticio who did photos for my Universal Yoga post.
We just had to rent them for the maternity photoshoot especially biking has become part of our lives here in Saigon. Ryan, Soki’s husband bike with us. And Soki too when she was still living in Manila.
