I’ve known this pretty girl since the time I had her sibling joined my small group (discipleship) last year. I actually observed her looks for couple of Sundays (that’s when I get to see her, during Sunday worship service at Victory, Pasig) and have wanted her to join the Teen Photo Shoot I planned months back.
One thing I noticed though, Blessy and her sibling, Angenelle have this one thing in common (well , there are some siblings whom you wouldn’t know they are sisters or brothers until they tell you so). They smile sweetly and bashfully. And when they do, their eyes glimmer.. Why can’t I smile like that? They are gifted with such smile and I am totally envious!
I soooo love her bashful smile! Mitch, a photographer friend, just reminded me of her while we were brainstorming for the photoshoot. Yes, I invited two more friends (apart from Mitch) to join me with this so they can also have their shots for their portfolio. And I was speechless I was able to convince her to pose for my first Teen Portrait Shoot. When I did her make up, I was afraid I might overdo it as she already have the beautiful face and heavy make up might spoil the natural beauty. A simple eye shadow. a light blush and a lip gloss made her shine already.
What I like about this teenager is that she follows instruction and would even remind you to just tell her what to do. Most of her shots were lock up. You can’t afford to miss that smile, do you?
Since I intend to write a blog about the Photo Shoot I tried to get some facts about her. Too bad, I was inept to talk about her during the photoshoot. That is one disadvantage when you have group photoshoot, you sporadically overlook some details like getting to know your model. I had this conversation with her through FB chat. I had questions she need to answer solely for this blog.
Note: Questions & Answers translated in English.
Question 1: Is this your first time posing for a Photo Shoot?
Answer: Yes. It is my first time.
Question 2: What did you feel when you were chosen for this Photo Shoot?
Answer: I was excited. I told Mom instantly and we rummaged outfit for that.
Question 3: You were given a lot of feedback that you look like Kathryn Bernardo ( a famous teenage celebrity in the country), which is really true, did you feel somehow intimidated or flattered?
Answer: Flattered! hahahah! Of course. She is a real beauty. She’s my idol and I look like her. I’m happy.
Question 4 : If you were given the chance to pursue a career in acting but were offered a modelling opportunity which do you prefer?
Answer: Can I have both? I’m also good at crying. hahahah!
(Luke : Let’s try that part of your future career!)
Blessy : hahahah! I’m self-conscious.
Question 5: So what course are you taking up now?
Answer: Advertising and Public Relations in PUP. Third year.
Question 6: How do you see yourself after graduating from your course?
Answer: PR Account Director or Creative Director. But I prefer working on creative materials.
(They are a family of creative talents!)
Question 7: Given the beautiful face, I’m sure you got suitors and having boyfriend is undeniable at your age. Have you got one?
Answer: I got suitors. hahaha.
Question 8: How do you describe yourself?
Answer: I’m simple and upright. At first I’m a hushed person but when you get to know me, I’m unrelenting. Negative side? I am importunate hahaha.
Question 9: To whom in your family are you most chummy?
Answer: Hahaha. I’m close to all of them. But with my older brother, he’s so quiet that’s why I’m not really that close to him. Oh, there’s one thing we click together! Playing video games. League of Legends. And we also played Dota in our childhood days.
If it’s a girl stuff bonding, my mom and my sister. But I’m a daddy’s girl! He’s just soooo kind and he gives all what I want (if need be). Mom is strict, that’s why. But as a whole, we’re a happy family. And i love them all so much!
Question 10: Which outfit do you prefer? Casual, sporty, formal….?
Answer: I prefer Casual.
I had one last request though for my photo works.
Luke : How do you rate luke belmonte as an amateur photographer?
Rate stars: 5 the highest and 1 the lowest? Honest answer please? Hehehe
Blessy : 5 stars (with hearts) – that’s a total of 8!
Sweet girl. hahaha.
