A Special Day with The Photo Studio Australia ( Sydney ) -- UPDATED with PhotosSaturday, April 08, 2017Traveliztera
|My fave photo! There's something about the vibe of this photo. I just love it!|
Since 2017 entered, I think I haven't had proper sleep due to so many activities in-between work. Don't get me wrong! I'm not complaining. I think this has been one of the most fulfilling and productive years ever, and I am truly grateful for everything that has been coming my way.
Megan stayed in touch with me for a couple of days to give me an introduction to their work, as well as help me prepare through a styling call. We had wonderful conversations about the creative world, and she was very approachable and helpful. Her bubbly personality definitely introduced me to what I was about to experience at The Photo Studio.
To be honest, I have never explored the creative side of Sydney wherein I am directly involved in. I was usually just an observer of someone else's work.
Ever since I got here, I was just so serious and focused on getting my nursing career up and going that I forgot to take care of the girl whose other passion involved singing and performing.
Nursing is an amazing career. I enjoy helping people a lot. I'm just so in love with the idea of touching other people's lives. I did both Cardiology and Palliative Care Nursing, and they obviously have this huge difference in terms of care. Still, it's fulfilling to be able to see and help someone get revived and have their health back, as well as give the comfort that a dying patient deserves to have a peaceful and pain-free death. I sometimes sing and act out like I'm in a musical in front of my patients to make them laugh, and that's when it hit me that I definitely miss my musical side.
I realised that I lost the balance that I should have had. I lost the other dreams that used to live in me to the point that I lost the confidence of that girl who used to perform so many times in front of an amazing audience for years.
It was only this year that I decided to step out of my comfort zone, and consistently hang out around the creative spots in Sydney to do what I want to do in terms of my singing/musical theatre dreams.
And guess what?
The Photo Studio happened. And they made sure that my confidence was kept alive. They became part of my journey to getting that confident performer back.
I had to come back a few weeks later for the viewing session. When I arrived, I was greeted by Annaliese, their producer, and it was so lovely to see her again! She explained to me everything that I needed to know, and then started showing me all my photos.
It was definitely difficult to decide. They all looked amazing! Thanks Tash!
Annaliese helped me out, and she really loved the beauty shots, and we were just laughing about it because I wasn't a fan of my own beauty shots due to me being less confident about them. But I got to choose one beauty shot for my portfolio cover, which I think was a great suggestion by Annaliese.
She has been really accommodating throughout the process, and her lovely personality just makes you feel more comfortable and confident that you will have an amazing portfolio in your hands. Thanks so much for being wonderful that day! I appreciate all your help and our lovely talk!
Also, my friend, Archie, surprised me with a drawing of the first photo I posted above. I did not expect he'd draw me! Thank you so much for the effort you've put in to this wonderful drawing! It's very lovely of you to do this! Check him out on Instagram: @archiemation.
