Last sunday we had a pre-debut shoot at Beverly Hills Lahug and Busay. The debutante is every photographer's dream; very charming, gorgeous, and very natural in front of the camera. She's so cute she looks no more than a 15-year old kid. Yeah I called her kid, I feel so old already. hahaha
The skies were kind of gloomy so we were amazed at how great the pictures turned out considering the boyfriend and his friend shot it using available light.
I guess it's every normal budding teenager's dream to celebrate her 18th birthday like a fairy tale; to be introduced to the society while walking down a grand staircase and wowing the guests with one's regal ball gown and perfectly made-up face.
I never had that ten years ago (yeah you do the math)
because a) my family couldn't afford it and b) even if we could afford it, i wouldn't have enjoyed it because i get conscious when people ogle at me.
Instead, I celebrated it with a simple pool party with my closest high school best friends.
How about you lovelies, how did you celebrate your 18th-year milestone into womanhood? :)
