Two down! Three more to go!

Photographed by Paolo Manalac


Finally had my second shoot for
with Paolo Manalac last Saturday!

I decided to dress down for the shoot since I knew the location was pretty rugged and crazy. I was right! The place totally blew me away! Was wearing a hat the whole time cause I thought It might rain and I might end up putting up with rain while styling! Just so you know, it didn't rain... but at least, the hat looked cute! 

I invited Ed to our shoot since he, Sarah (our model) and I were pretty good friends!
Thankfully, he was able to tag a long because I'd totally be lost in all the make up things involved.
The shoot Paolo wanted was inspired by the Preview cover shoot of June '08. 
Paolo has the best kind of concepts. His point of view has always been very interesting!
I tried my best to do the closest styling replica of the feel Paolo wanted. 
I hope I did it justice!

In between our shoot we got ourselves a mascot! hahaha

Don't you think Sarah is crazy beautiful? I do! 
The best thing about her is, she's always game with anything, even if it was pretty clear
she was struggling towards the end of the shoot because of the thousands MILLIONS of bugs flying
around the area. Thank you Sarah Alforque

and a BIG thank you to my DAD!
He with us the whole time we did the shoot!
He even brought us all snacks!!!
greatest DAD everrrrrrr
