Impromtu Table Setting at Grandma’s House

IMG_2444

 

My grandmother is an unbelievable hoarder. I know that’s very typical of most women (and most grandmothers) who find use for even the oldest and most dilapidated can or bottle in the house. My grandmother never throws things away, and it’s impossible to start a conversation with her on purging. Purging is not in her dictionary. Often times though, my grandma’s being a hoarder is put to good use, especially when it comes to impromptu events when we need to set her table for guests — even if it’s just family.  Continue reading “Impromtu Table Setting at Grandma’s House”

PHOTOSHOOT: Nestie’s Maternity

My friend, Nestie, gave birth to a baby girl today. A month ago, we had a photoshoot in their home one rainy Sunday. There was no theme in particular, we just played with the laid-back vibe of a happy home and a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Photos were taken by my boyfriend.

“The Dangerous Type”

One Saturday in November last year (or was that December?) I woke up early despite sleeping very late the night before, lugged my big plastic box of clothes and shoes and traversed to midtown Cebu to meet up with one of my dearest friends, a highschool classmate, to assist her in their pre-nuptial photoshoot.  I think I was as excited as the bride-to-be.  This would be the first time I’d style and I was eager to meet the team behind RockPaperScissors.  That day I realized styling is tiring, but VERY FUN, I’d do it again or have it as a day job. All the efforts thrown into that shoot was rewarded because the guests at their wedding were all giggly and felt the love shown in the photos and were impressed, and BridalBook featured the shoot! I’m as happy as my friend.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot that I asked permission from my friend to repost and share:

Theirs was a double “B+C” inspired shoot.  Famous “B+C” couples in television history: Bonnie and Clyde, and Blair and Chuck.  We did the photoshoot at the couple’s Alma Mater at the San Jose Recolletos Cebu, a BDO branch, and the Cebu business park. My friend and her husband are both bankers. 🙂
