debutante : hazel gwynette











My family is always my first fan as a photographer. I like it when they support the remarkable ensemble I do and I like less when they tell me that my shots are so-so (not so good). Who wouldn’t want recognition? And who would want criticism? Nonetheless, as an endeavoring photographer, critique is one factor to become better and compliment is another.

This is my first ever pre-debut coverage. Anyway, she is my niece, my sold out beau. Hahaha. Having nieces is a good advantage as I can always cover their special events for my portfolio. Of course, they would love to do that for their  Facebook profile picture or a post for their Instagram accounts. I covered one of her pre-debut pictorial 2 years ago. She prefers my service above all other great photographers. Not because I am better than those photographers out there, it’s simply because, she is more relaxed and comfortable posing in front of me and my camera. I implied her (and my sister – her mom) to get another photographers for her pre-debut and her party itself. Why not me? I promised I would do her make up on her debut (yes she prefers my make up on top of professional ones. talk about loyalty? hahaha) and I can’t do both. Moreover, I don’t do videos, so it’s best to have other photographers do the videos. Since it’s rare nowadays to get a video service alone as it always comes with photos, so they hired them for both.

I still accompanied her (and her mom) during the shoot with the hired photographers in Ecopark, Quezon City, so I still get some shots of her. Though she still wants me to take another pre-debut shoot for her afterwards. Spoiled niece huh? So we went all the way to Pangasinan (our hometown) where her lolo (my father) made her a swing just for the photoshoot and to Baguio where we had to brave the cold weather and the rain.

It’s fun taking photos under the pouring rain not to mention defying the brisk weather.
