Pre-birthday shoot for Mrs Eniola Adedokun

Earlier on this year, a call came in asking if we were available for a birthday shoot next day but unfortunately we weren’t. It was a call from Mrs Adedokun for her Hubby’s surprise birthday. 

Fast forward to June 2016.

I met her at her friend’s daughter’s birthday and she lamented missing us at the birthday having seen so many of our image posts, photo books and picture frames in several places. After long discussion, I made her a promise to be available for her birthday come September. 

Surprisingly, she showed up beautifully a day before but looking sleepy and stressed out due to overwork in preparation for the birthday. Then we got gusting outside photography. My staff and students were surprised at the gestures and flow that one of them asked if she is my sister. 

After few minutes of discussion, I notice the face got lit up. Then we started shooting and shooting and shooting that she eventually changed 4times. I did my best to engage her all through the shoot.

Indeed, I could say she has a beautiful soul made evident in her friendly and welcoming face. 


Beautiful imperfection

 Imperfection as it were

We don’t feel comfortable 

When it comes our way

But it appeals to our creative minds

Because its beautiful 

As long as it doesn’t hurt

It takes time to be perfect

It takes years most times

But it pays to be perfect

Though we might not experience it quickly

Accept your imperfection

Then you are set for perfection

Then the journey will be easier 

And sometimes faster

When we accept who we are

There is Beauty in imperfection
