It was a fun and hot sunny Sunday that 15th March 2015. This time around, for aere's second collection, I decided to have a lifestyle photoshoot with me in it and two people that I was really really comfortable with: Dearest Ruzana Ibrahim and Lisa Surihani. These two sweethearts and beautiful souls who agreed to do the shoot with me in a very short period of time. And I'm not exaggerating, really short time! I'm really grateful that they agreed to it :) I must thank Lisa and Aunty Mira for the venue too! Since it was my first photoshoot of this kind, I know it was going to be quite intimidating. Surrounded by talented individuals and pros who are very experienced in their own fields helped me. Doing it together with Ruzana and Lisa was indeed a blessing :) It was super fun and crazy zany full of laughter!
It also helps so much that I had a very cool, efficient and talented team and support together with me. I had a professional team of photographers led by Aaron, KF Bong as make up artist for the three of us, Min Luna as art director on the day of the shoot, FV's team who are so used to handling a lot of photoshoots: Veen Dee Tan, Mazni Musa and Athirah Abdul Halim and of course the husband Khubayb aka @kneok who helped around as well as taking all the BTS photos you see here in this post! :)
Here in this post I'll be sharing the behind-the-scenes photos of the first scene of the shoot. The casual wear (aere LIGHT) scene.
In this scene, I wanted to picture girlfriends hanging out, chilling, catching up and having fun while having tea and eating desserts. Something that we ladies usually do with our girlfriends, catching up. :)
I remember I didn't sleep the week before this photoshoot. Planning, imagining and visualising the photoshoot and the end result. I also came up with a story line for the shoot and also planned the looks too. I was so nervous the week before the shoot!
Here are some of the BTS photos of us on set during the memorable and fun photoshoot! I'll share more story and photos in my next post :)
Us getting ready before we sunbathed under the hot sun! It was a blast having these two at the shoot who not only calmed me but cracked me up with jokes at all the wrong time. We were laughing non-stop! Lisa and Ruzana my loves!
What We Wore :
Lisa : HEDERA Glister Top in Nude Silver and VIOLA Skirt in Indigo

This post reminds me of Stepping into the Glitz and Glamour for One Night : ABP 2013.
