Photoshoot with balloons!

I couldn't wait to share them so here I am posting a new post for you all, it's already past midnight and I should be sleeping.  I guess I will just have to be zombified tomorrow and somehow make it through the day.

Last weekend I did a shoot with two models, a photographer and a wardrobe stylist.  The photos did not turn out the way we want it as many obstacles got in the way and we did our best to get around it.  In the end we were disappointed, but we had a lovely day with lots of laughter and met some great people.

Anyway credits to the following team members for making it a fun day.

Photographer: Kenny Gunawan
Wardrobe Stylist: Rachael Low
Models: Stacey & Emma

Hope you enjoy the photos.

Flat out exhausted

My grandma is leaving to go back to Hong Kong after a 3 month visit here in Perth.  I've had the opportunity to eat her Hakka food that she used to make all the time in Hong Kong.

My favourite is definitely her sticky glutinous rice balls (Mochi) filled with crushed up roasted peanutes and brown sugar.  Absolutely a delicious snack and not too sweet, yet so soft.

Fashion Shoot: Animal Prints

Did a bit of a fun fashion shoot a couple of weeks ago and finally got the edited photos two day ago.  I love them, yet I could see so many things I need to pay more attention to.

Afternoon creativity & Sneak Peek

Had a glorious Saturday afternoon free for once and being someone who gets bored very easily.

I had bought this vintage looking bird cage from a store for $10 and had since left it in a corner for some bit.  These bird cage are very popular at the moment and they sell out fast at the stores, but I know they keep stocking them up.

I also collects little bits and pieces when I venture in craft stores.  Most things are only a couple of dollars and just put them into a basket until I dig through it to see if I have anything I could use.

Here is a couple of instagram to share with you my little short journey of being creative until I lost patience.

Before any decorations added.

Swan Valley Road Trip once again and update on upcoming photos...

Hello everyone,

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend.  It is long weekend in Perth Australia this weekend, so I'm just glad I have a monday off.

Been flat out busy trying to seriously pursue my makeup career.  I'm pretty determined to get paid jobs and at the same time accepting shoots that will help me build my portfolio.

I've recently did a shoot with a hairstylist who wanted a particular look for her shoot that she'll use in her look book.  She's a wonderful lady who is amazing at hair (cut/style).  So down to earth and easy going that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.   I was also lucky to have the work photographed by a talented fashion photographer who recently had a gorgeous baby girl (she is so cute!).

Anyway here were the two makeup plans I prepared ahead of time to present to the hairstylist to confirm it is what she wanted.  Her shoot is an inspiration from a photo she saw via searching google image.  It's a photo out of a Vogue (Italia?) magazine a couple years back.  Absolutely stunning, with that vintage couture look to it.
