February pa 'tong contest na 'to sa Facebook. It was for valentine so "LOVE" ang theme of course. Those who participatd were asked to send in photos of their children between 0- 10 years of age sharing moments together.
Here's our entry:
As usual, voting na naman ang labanan. The competition was tough. Imagine, there were 144 entries and only the 1st five with highest votes got the following prizes:
1st Prize: (1) FREE membership GC plus (4) 8x10 Portraits
2nd Prize: (1) FREE membership GC plus (3) 8x10 Portraits
And 3 consolation prize winners of (2) 8x10 Portraits each
I've always been a fan of TPC. But I was never given a chance to register as a member since it was way too expensive for me (the membership card costs around 2500 or 3000k ata). That's why I was really happy that we made it to the 2nd place.
We had a total of 322 likes with 174 comments (comments were not counted though but we really appreciated those who took time to leave heartwarming words for my kids).
So yun, we got the free membership that I've been longing for (that's good for a year) and three 8 x 10 portraits (each costs around 800-900 pesos) as our prize. We claimed them from TPC MOA branch.
The staff were really professional yet nice. They gave us time to warm up first and asked us to choose from their wide array of children's costumes. It was really hard to choose since everything was really cute. I was once again tempted to choose those pink "kikay" ones for my little girl but then I finally decided to go for the black ballerina outfit for her instead (para maiba naman, lagi na lang syang pink and girly sa mga photoshoots).
"What should I wear?", Masheng having a hard time choosing from their wardrobe of costumes.
There were also lots of cute costumes for baby boys. We initially wanted to try the angel wings on Baby King but then it required him to lie on his tummy (which wasn't easy yet for him that time). We also tried different wigs and headresses on him but he got annoyed with those. So he ended up just half naked on his photo. He was still very adorable though.
"Do I look cute with this wig on?"
The session was so much fun! The photographer who did the shoot was so good and patient with kids.
Masheng enjoying the shoot.
We also had a family portrait. Too bad, Joms and I were not able to prepare. If we had known that we would get included in the pictorial, we would have had prepared and worn matching outfits. Our family shot was still really nice though. My kids portraits are just so beautiful. We plan of framing everything and hanging those on our new home's wall.
Thanks again TPC for the wonderful experience. And once again, thanks for all those who supported and voted for our kids during the contest.
