Loving Your Body [Shot by Hub Pacheco]

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post these or any sets of photos that I’ve recently done over the year but these photos are waaay overdue.

A good friend on mine, Hub Pacheco and I, decided to meet up in Manila while I was there for my Chicken, Pork, Adobo Christimas party. It was such a relief seeing a familiar face while I was there as I was definitely outside of my comfort zone. Speaking of comfort zones, this shoot was also one of them.

I’m not fond of intimate shoots purely for the reason that it leaves the onlookers with nothing else to look at but myself. When you’re shooting an outfit photo, there are so many things that come into play- I make you look at a beautiful photo with beautiful backdrops and clothes to match. In a shoot like this, it’s just me and I honestly don’t know how I feel about that.

It also doesn’t help that I have gained about 20 lbs since these photos were taken.

But through weight gain and a slow road to self acceptance, I have learned that weight is something you can gain and lose as you please- self love and confidence is something you gain overtime and it’s not something that should come and go like your BMI. So I have always chosen to love myself because I owe myself THAT much and ykw, I do!


Also, wine makes me sleepy.
