For those who do not know what Aqiqah is , It is a ceremony done by muslims to celebrate a new baby born. During the ceremony, people attended will be encouraged to cut little pieces of hair of the baby. While this is done, there shall be Selawat chanted by them too.

This is my second time of shooting such event. The last time was few years ago and I do not think I still have them in my computer. :-D

I have known Kak Anna since I was studying at The Cosmopoint College. She is a nice person and loves to share things and ideas. Believe me, you will never get bored when chatting with her as there is always interesting topics to be discussed with.

That's why it never took me a long time to accept the offer to become the official photographer for her daughter and also her sister's son Aqiqah Ceremony.

Photographing babies is not easy as thought. The first thing that needs to be done is to make them feels that we are no threats. Try to be friendly to them. It is one of the hardest things to do but really fun.
