You know how it is when you meet someone for the first time and you get that warm fuzzy feeling deep inside? That’s exactly how I felt when I met Fretzel Buenconsejo. I remember thinking how great it would be to photograph her. Olive skin. Curly hair. Deep soulful eyes and a smile worthy of a toothpaste ad. A person that could tell me stories while I try to chase and capture it.
As if her looks weren’t enough, Angel gave me a run down of her past projects. Her face plastered all over the Metro Railing Station for a Nescafe Ad. She also did a stint for Gatorade and had done a spread for a magazine that Angel showed me. Wow! I wanted to hide under the table and whisper a prayer of gratitude.
She’s one humble soul. Don’t you just love being with people with the most welcoming aura? Humble people are more secure of themselves. They are more REAL. I guess this was the main focus for this shoot. I wanted to showcase glamour that was something more than what meets the eye.
Here are some photos of last Saturday’s shoot.
