DIY Photos with Confetti

This year it was 5 degrees and below on my birthday–yes, in Fahrenheit–so I couldn’t really run around in Boston like I originally planned to. At least it gave me the opportunity to get my photos [inserted below] done indoors before heading out to see a movie and have dinner with my friend, Nina.

This is a quick vlog-styled how-to video I edited on achieving birthday photos using a paper backdrop and some confetti and balloon props. Please do try this at home with the best of luck from me.

Baking Sunflower Cupcakes!

Last week, I spent a few hours with friends in my kitchen baking and decorating cupcakes. I had expressed how much I missed making pretty cupcakes for school bake sales when I was in high school and we all wanted to bake again! Now that I’m in college, there are way less opportunities to host bake sales on campus…

Here is a video of how we made them and more:

These are also how our pictures turned out:

The Prom Photo Series

Hey guys! This past month, my friend Kathy and I have accompanied Tu and Oscar during their pre-prom festivities to help take prom photos for them.

I vlogged during both days! May 5th (I think) and May 17th;

As you can see, it was rainy during the first prom and then sunny and bright for their second prom.

Here’s a little bit of what I shot during the first shoot:Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

I did not edit the photos for the second shoot yet, if I do then I will post them here too.
