The beach is the perfect place to showcase your creativity in photography, thanks to its ambient lighting and scenic background. Throw in a photogenic model to the mix, you’ve got yourselves photos worth sharing.
These photos of four-year-old Kionna Elia Valido proves the success of this combination — check out how she effortlessly slayed this impromptu photo session by the beach:
The photos were taken by the child’s uncle, Bobby Glenn Arzaga during a visit to Brooke’s Point, Palawan. Arzaga tells INQPOP! that the shoot was simply done out of fun.
“Trip lang po namin mag photoshoot doon kasi summer na. Kapag boring po [dito], naghahanap po ako ng mga pamangkin ko na mapag-tripan ng photoshoot at makeup-makeupan. Tapos nag propose po siya [na gusto niya ng shoot] so inayos ko po siya para perfect yung pag-awra niya,” he explains. (Since it’s summer, we thought it’d be fun to do a photoshoot. When it gets boring here, I tend to ask one of my nieces for a photoshoot, complete with make up styling. Kionna was all for the shoot and I did her makeup — just to perfect her look for the shoot)
To Arzaga’s surprise, Kionna was quite the “model” when it came to taking the photos. Even her family was stunned to see the child’s fierce personality shine through in the shots.
“Natutuwa po yung family niya. Bali po may kapatid ‘yan siya naiingit nga po kasi yung time na ‘yon wala siya sa bahay nila tapos, Kionna lang po yung andoon. Siya na lang po yung photoshoot ko,” Arzaga shares to INQPOP! (Her family was thrilled to see her photos. One of her siblings even said she was jealous because she wasn’t at the house at the time this happened. Kionna was the only one I had the chance to shoot)
Since the photos have been uploaded to Facebook, a number of online users were intrigued, entertained, and somewhat intimidated by the child’s modeling prowess. Here are some comments they had about it:
We think Tyra Banks herself would be proud of Kionna Elia Valido. Keep on smizing, young KWEEN! 👑🙌
