A freelance photographer amazed netizens with the results of his nieces’ photoshoot for their birthday.
On April 27, 2022, uploader Zaan Mark pulled off a surprise photoshoot for Girlie and Diana.
“Actually, that photoshoot is hindi ko talaga expected. During pandemic kasi I started to make photography as a living, naging marami na akong client and then it became na super busy. And then my nieces are approaching na ‘yung birthday nila and then medyo masaklap if hindi ko man lang sila ma-photoshoot kasi meron silang tito na photographer,” Mark told The Philippine STAR.
“Hindi pa sila naka-experience ng photoshoot so I decided to have their birthday photoshoot,” he added.
As part of his preparation, Mark looked for an ideal place to shoot. He also planned the theme and peg of the photos.
“I planned everything, I made a mood board. I looked for a place na medyo malayo dito samin so we had to travel using the motor. I really want to make the photoshoot very magical. Nag photoshoot kami sa bridge, tsaka pumunta kami sa ilalim may river dun kami nag photoshoot,” he recalled.
After the photoshoot, Mark said he decided to upload the behind-the-scenes on TikTok while editing the photos.
To his surprise, the photos went viral on social media. The online community also commended his work and his nieces.
“Nag edit ako and then ‘yun I did not expect na ma blow-blow up ko siya sa Tiktok po,” he said.
“Tsaka ang daming mga messages, inquiries. And then nung nag-viral siya, I go to the comment section and then napansin ko nag comment ‘yung mga verified Tiktoker. “ Kudos to the photographer. Parang the girl, the curly hair looks like Zendaya. And then the other one looks like nung sa the Karate Kid na ganito ganyan. So I was so stunned like hindi ako makagalaw,” he added.
As of writing it has already garnered with more than 6.4 views on TikTok.
“Strong emotion in their eyes,” a netizen commented.
“Pangmodel beauty nila,” another netizen said.
Mark said that he was so happy with the positive feedbacks he received from his nieces and from the online community.
“Everyone of us na very stunned sa photo like sobrang ang daming compliments even our neighborhood, na “Huy, hindi ko nakilala si Girlie, hindi ko nakilala si Diane,” “I really thought they are from, they very look like a Hollywood,” he shared.
