Well… I’m back.

I am presenting you guys with a new blog post today. It has been a long time since my last blog post, but it was because I’ve been busy with work and life. I didn’t want to post something on this blog just for the sake of posting something. There would be no meaning in that and I’m sure you guys wouldn’t want that either. On another note, I’m more active on Instagram these days, just because it’s easier to keep you guys updated on what I’ve been doing and what I’m currently working on.

Setting that aside, I hope you guys are well and excited for the holidays – I know I am! December is probably one of my favourite months because it just puts me in such a good mood. People starting to shop for gifts and presents and seeing everyone being so happy running around getting things done.


Like any other weekend, Cynthia and I went out for brunch and this time around, we went to one of our favourite restaurants in the city – ONE Restaurant. What drew me to this restaurant was the great food, atmosphere, interiors and service. For starter, we ordered a cup of cappuccino and tea. Moving on to the main, I ordered the Shakshouka and Cynthia ordered the Spaghettini. Let me tell you guys, both dishes were incredible. The Shakshouka is my absolute favourite dish from that restaurant and each time I go there I either get that or the Cinnamon French Toast.

After we finished our brunch, the madness that was our shoot began. I proceeded to shoot Cynthia first around the restaurant. We shot in the lounge area because there was less people and also because we liked the jade green velvet couch. Thirty minutes later, Cynthia took a break and it was my turn to shoot.
I wore an all black look on a gloomy day, which didn’t help at all because I looked like the slender man (short version). We used a Speedlite flash to give the photos more oomph. My shoot was pretty quick and once we wrapped up our shoot at the restaurant, we decided to shoot outside for a little bit to get different mood and vibes. We also shot a video at the restaurant and outside to make it more interesting.
