Pink Nouveau

3rd Installment for my MAC Lipstick post. This was shot last January… was so busy then I forgot to post here.

Lipstick: MAC Pink Nouveau

Tip: If used during daytime, this lip color best compliments a brown/taupe eye make up.

36th Week Sneak Peek

We were advised by my OB-Gyne last friday that I might deliver anytime this week. Way too early from my 3rd week October due date. So, we decided to have the maternity shoot as soon as possible. And here is a sneak peek.

An in-house/ DIY production by Jay Jallorina and Aby Valentos.

After 9 months, I finally had the guts to have a nude photo taken… with my baby bump.

Kate Moss’ Wedding

Kate Moss tied the knot with rocker beau Jamie Hince last July 1, 2011. On the September issue of Vogue, Kate and Jamie’s official wedding photos by Mario Testino will be revealed.

Kate Moss’ wedding is simply amazing. True to her personal style, the wedding looked chic, elegant, classic and  effortlessly glamorous. And of course, romantic.

And below are the couple’s super fabulous wedding portrait.

Nanette + Oliver wedding photos

Wedding was held last January 9…

Thanks Nanette for the heartwarming testimonial…

“I want to thank Aby and her team for my hair and makeup during my wedding.

I chose the airbrush and it looked so natural and it really enhanced my features. It’s the perfect wedding look. The makeup she used was comfortable on the skin and it lasted for the whole night. I have oily skin so I was worried because I always have problems with makeup smearing or melting, but I didn’t have a problem at all.
Aby retouched it and made my eyes smokier for the evening reception. Her style is subtle and quite classy. A lot of my friends complimented my makeup.

Her team also changed my hair for the reception, which I loved. The hairstyle they did was perfect for my long hair and my fascinator.
The curls were cool because they looked hip but at the same time, it still looked done up.

I’m really extremely pleased with everything  and would recommend Aby to all my friends”.

Oyo & Kristine’s Engagement Shoot

After the release of these photos to Yahoo Southeast Asia, Nelwin Uy will sure be the next big wedding photographer.

What I like about this engagement shoot is that Photographer Nelwin Uy focused his lens on the love the couple have for each other. Kristine Hermosa didn’t outshine Oyo Sotto and vise versa. Love is the subject. You can see and feel love in these photographs.

And here’s the video by Threelogy

*I super like the vintage 1950’s look of the couple. Great styling by Geoff Gonzales.

Wildlife shoot

Last Saturday, commercial photographer and Canon Brand Ambassador, Jay Jallorina asked me to model for him while he tries out a new lighting combination. I donned my self designed dress in animal print. Yes, we’re also against animal cruelty, but my dress needs a little public attention. Here are some of the results of my “hard work”.

People think that modeling is easy.  It is actually difficult. “Modeling entails a lot of patience, pain and a whole lot of rejections. It’s a glamorous life that almost everyone is attracted on.”
