I am sure most girls at some point of their teenage (or sometimes, early adulthood) lives fantasized about being a model. All thanks to the media that portrays the job of modelling as simple(how difficult can looking pretty be?), glamourous (Gucci, Prada...You name it, you get it) and JUST gorgeous.
Don't girls just want to look pretty?
I am one of those Supermodel-wannabe-dreamers. I confess I am a BIG fan of modeling or fashion reality shows. Of course, as I grew up and learnt a hard truth. That, my physique was not cut out for a model-material. But that doesn't stop me from fantasizing that (just)MAYBE one day (or two) that I might be able to appear in some print ads or something. No runway walk, definitely!
And yesterday, I felt like a Supermodel.

If you had read my earlier post, Aloysius and I finally got our first couple shot done yesterday. I have to admit I was really nervous as it was not-your-usual shot. I was afraid there might be awkwardness or I might feel intimidated in my most vulnerable self.
Kelvin (the photographic artist or photographer who paints. You should check out his works. Definitely one of a kind.) asked if we had brought any extra outfits and I cracked a joke and replied "Yes, our skin". How corny but true. Most of the time, we were clothed in our birthday suit. Okay, you get the visuals here...

To sum it all, it was a FANTASTIC(!!!) experience. Kelvin and Elaine were an awesome team. Aloysius and I felt so comfortable throughout the shot. We had such a great time joking around with them(all in the buff). All my prior worries were threw out of the window once we got into the mood (with wine, chocolates and yummy cookies).
We are looking forward to viewing our pictures next week. Frankly speaking, I am addicted to professional photo shoots. And I can't wait to plan for the next soon.
P.S: If feeling like a million dollars is not good enough, you might want to know that Kelvin is actually donating ALL(yes, ALL!) proceeds of the photoshoot to the victims of the recent Japan Tsunami. How wonderful it is to know that WE are all doing it for a really worthy cause. Hop on over to Kelvin's website (click here) to check out more information about this outreach. And Kelvin does photograph humans with clothes.
