TotalGirl’s January 2011 issue.

Last October I got a sweet surprise from TotalGirl magazine. They asked if I could shoot their January 2011 editorial, and of course, I totally said YES!

I flew in for a few days and was picked up by the team to shoot at the La Mesa Ecopark.

Beautiful, beautiful place.

Katsu told me the models were found through a model search they did for the magazine.

Looking at the load of clothes, shoes and accessories made me think how kids can be so fashionable nowadays. Don’t think pre-teen fashion could have been this good when I was younger!

Oh and I have to mention that I was actually starstruck when I met Margaux Romero. She was the fashion editor for Candy magazine for three years. She’s sooo good at styling! This was her first time styling kids.

Shiloah’s super cute trained dog and his trainer.

When I was younger, my mom used to send me magazines and other goodies when my birthday came. The magazines that I got from Australia were Chik, Dolly, Girlfriend and TotalGirl! This was when TotalGirl wasn’t in the Philippines yet (right now Summit Media franchises it here). My mom and I were talking about how amazing it is that I got to shoot for a magazine I used to read as a child. Life~

I posted a few unpublished photos in my facebook page [here]. I was thinking of uploading the editorial but… Nah~ So that you guys can see something new if you actually buy the magazine (go on, your little sister will love you for it!)

It actually rained during the last set thus the impromptu addition of an umbrella.

My favorite from the shoot. I walked sooo far up just to find this spot!

Thank you so much to everyone for the support! Let’s make 2011 great by first putting it in our hearts and minds that we WILL MAKE this year great.
