Nothing like a Mother-Daughter Bond! Ibidunni & Keke Ighodalo Celebrate Birthday



Beauty queen and successful event entrepreneur Elizabeth R/The Dorchester/Avant Garde Ibidunni Ighodalo and her beautiful daughter Keke are celebrating their birthday today.

Renowned photographer Ty Bello in her usual style took to her Instagram page to share photos from their shoot accompanied with a beautiful message.

‘..A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back EXOTIC SURPRISES …. (from proverbs 31 . The message translation)

I was thinking about @ibidunni_ighodalo today and my heart went to proverbs 31. .. I read through.. and I was like yeah I know her .. the babe’s name is Elizabeth R.
Ibidun is really a proverb .. a beautiful mystery .. the baby-faced – delicate- always blushing flower .. but stronger than most people I know. Soft spoken and introverted yet open and spontaneous in her kindness. I’ve been through many season with’ Dun-dun ‘ .. I’ve never seen any one dare to dream so openly …and spread hope like she has even when going a tough season …But look at you ..Ibidunni…it’s clear .. God knows how to take care of his flowers .. I’ve seen him carry you wind-blown by faith to this most beautiful place .. making all things new .

Ibidun like in proverbs 31 .. God really is always using you to bring exotic surprises .Your life is such a testimony and I’m so proud of you . Happy birthday to you and your beautiful bundle of endless energy Keke. For every time your heart whispered the word ‘twins’ .. now you know what He meant.. ??????same birthday .. same smile .. same everything !!!this God amazes me..You’re both so beautiful.. so so so beautiful!! Thank God for the 19th of July !!#tybellophotography #mother-daughter #birthdaysession

    Ty Bello please know that variety is the spice of life even in photography…same natural hair updo for Chika Ike, Linda Ikeji and now Ibidun, haba! Aren’t there other natural hairstyles???

      Marie, can you even take photographs besides selfies?

    • Seriously

      Variety and creativity is good but what if her goal is to show their faces, facial features which an updo hairstyle will reveal. Women tend to use their hair to hide some insecurities maybe their big/small forehead, crooked face/smile whatever it is. Linda’s updo was not the problem it was how big the bun was.
      I love Ty Bello’s concept, the execution can be improved though.

      Ibidun has to be one of the most gorgeous women in the world. Her smile is so pure. Her daughter is beautiful. Love the photoshoot. Happy birthday, gorgeous. I pray God will continue to immerse you in his grace.

    I don’t like this shoot, the pictures are blurry and I could barely see them, Ty ur pics can be soft and bold at the same times, meanwhile, Ibidun is a very strong and beautiful woman, happy birthday to you and your gorgeous daughter.

    Mother and daughter are so beautiful but TY, please switch it up a bit.

    God Bless them both!

    How do I say this without sounding like a hater.
    How can a professional photographer just be giving all her clients the same look? Linda, Funke, Nhn Lady, Ibidun,Chika Ike, Pastor Nike, you name it… Don’t they have individual personalities?
    And the way she edits the photos without a drop of conscience, making it all so dreamy and soft with the exaggerated stories. Haba!
    Smokes and mirrors I tell ya!
    BN don’t even use this comment to blow your nose, This is not the time!

      Seriously the exaggerated captions are becoming a bore.

      Everybody is a monumental inspiration to TY, from Flavour (and his tattoos) to Pastor Paul to Olamide to the VP’s wife to Davido, all their shoots come with long winded stories that honestly seem forced sometimes.

    TY Bello is starting to become staid. No innovation whatsoever. The wow factor is now meh. Nothing new. Same techniques all the time. Same saturation levels. There’s a difference between having a signature style and being stagnant in your style.

    Happy birthday Mum and Daughter!
    Ty’s pics these days is just not clear in my eyes. There is need for it to be sharp. Not knocking TY’s hustle but I’m beginning to like Elenorgoddey’s work, it has that egdy look, clear and soft on the eyes as well.

    May be that’s what the client likes or asked for or why they went to her. Welldone TY

  13. Hmm

    July 19, 2017 at 3:09 pm

    I saw the picture without reading the heading and I knew it was done by TY Bello,

    TY Bello you photos are nice but don’t you think it is time to jazz things up a bit.

    I can not comprehend this level of beef! When did the post become “TY bello’s photography style; Discuss”?

    • Corolla

      July 19, 2017 at 5:34 pm

      Because the post is about photos that TY produced. ..duh!

    No one is beefing Ty.. I for one think she is amazing, but It seems people are getting bored of her “signature look” which is cool. Otherwise Ibudunni is gorgeous, her daughter is so pretty and they both look amazing in the pictures. Well done TY

    Catering to the rich and social media oversharing has somewhat limited the perception of Ty Bello’s skills versatility. This is what’s killing entrepreneurship in Nigeria. Everyone wants to cater to the 1%. The risk of doing that is unrealistically high anticipation for more range and overexposure when exclusivity doesn’t necessarily require a range. Thing with photography is that the range is very finite. I recall phototek or Le’fatis (sp anyone) back in the days…he took the same kind of photos and you can see it anywhere and know it’s the same phototek in ibadan or Le’faitis (abi worefa) Also when motion pics were in vogue, you have seen one, you have seen all. The other thing is social media overexposure just makes everything lose its novelty and true premium. Same way all brides look the same nowadays and all weddings look and feel the same. And Banke BMPRO brides all have the same finish.

    Gosh! So much negativity! To bed the lot of you! Backseat drivers. Ibidun is happy. Her daughter is lovely. TY kept their essence in their photos. They were her audience not YOU. Shishi you did not drop for the photos. You can’t even do selfies right and yet…

    The funny thing about those criticizing her works is that they themselves cant stand to be criticized, yet they hide themselves behind one miserable computer in the cybercafé and type jargons. Nice foto o jere and buriful people too.
