Lots of new shoots, and a facebook page :3

Hiiiiiiii I’m alive 😛 I’ve had the post about Korin’s book signing on draft for the longest time (hopefully finishing it within these few days…) but I’ve been so busy with shoots that I got so tired to finish it XD I had 7 shoots within 11 days. You can imagine how tired I am, but I wanted to get as much photos as I can while my hair is still red hahaha. I will have a post about my hair dyeing experience/review of the salon up later as well ^_^

Since some photographers asks for more photos, I decided to create a facebook page. Please support me by visiting it and liking it if you have a facebook! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Judy-Yang/391698994199006 There you can view all shoots I have done so far, and I’m going to be adding more as the photographers send me the photos. This summer is my most productive summer yet and it just started haha~

Here are some photos from recent shoots that I haven’t shared with you guys:

le ciel. – photography franklin yeep

This was quite awhile ago, before school ended (and i cut one class that day for it, but luckily a lot of people cut that day too so the professor just cancelled class LOL). I really love how serene the whole shoot looked. You can view more photos from that shoot here.

missing you. – photography by jesse yeung

Wanted to do a boyfriend shirt shoot for the longest time. Since I don’t have a bf, i borrowed the photographer’s shirt XD But I want to redo this shoot with a white one next time, since that’s the idea I really wanted to do. However, I did like how some of the shots came out, and second time trying a more sexy look for a shoot hehe. More photos here.

ready go. – photography by jesse yeung

Took this shoot after the boyfriend shoot. Jesse’s idea was for me to be kind of like import model look (so I had a cap on for some of the shots). He just wanted to push me past my limit so that I can really try sexy shoots in the future, so I really have to thank him because now I think I can! (Especially because two “cute” shoots, I tried to do the cute thing then the photographers yelled at me saying I’m looking too sexy… so I guess I can’t do the cute thing as well anymore XD) More from this shoot here.

enchanted. – photography by Optimistic Artist

The photographer wanted a magical shoot, so the idea was like fairy like, etc It was a nice and fun shoot. You can view more photos here (more will be added soon!).

one more day. – photography by Son Le.

one more day. – photography by Son Le.

I love love love love love the photos from this shoot. I think it’s because I finally got to do three ideas I have always wanted in this shoot! The silhouette against sunset (because it reminds me of Violet’s Mascara MV where they played their instruments against the sunset), “dancing” with fabric (inspired by miss A’s touch photoshoot), and lying on tulle in grass with roses (as seen in my new banner). For more photos from this shoot, check out this album.

I also did a shoot for my lingerie portfolio, but I’ll make a separate post about it when I get more photos back from the photographer ^_^

Please support my passion~! Thank you ♥

Yukata Photoshoot Photos & Mini Giveaway!

I smile for you every day, I pray for you
With thoughts of you, I fall asleep - I open my eyes as I call for you...
You are my heaven
-Ailee "Heaven"

The photos I promised some friends I would post on my blog :3 Sandy uploaded these four so far from the yukata photoshoot, don’t know if she’ll be posting more or not XD I hope she will~ I really like how she edited the first three, it’s softer and dreamier hehe My Gyaru inspired make up was mentioned in a previous post, if you want to see the process and what I used.

For the first shot, she told me to really daydream of something I like, and I’m sure all my friends know what that is ^__~ But that was really smart, because she would get a photo of me really in a smiling daze, rather than just eyes closed XD Second shot I think I was really just enjoying myself there on break and she just took it, so it was a genuine smile. ^^

Don’t know if anyone noticed, but I was using the first shot as my banner and have a new background to welcome spring. What do you guys think of the new look? Hope the background doesn’t look too cluttered! >__<”

The lyrics above are from this song that I’m so addicated to right now! It kind of describes my situation hahaha~

Love her outfit and hair! Trying to grow my bangs out like hers ^^

A Day with Katherine♥

Yesterday I had my “date” with Katherine/Tomoyo ♥ It was filled with things I loved – Rose House, waffles, chatting and catching up, playing with hairstyles, photoshoots, walking around.

I was craving waffles since the day I shopped with Sandy (last saturday), so I decided to get that at Rose House. Katherine got their rose cheesecake with fruits. I thought they would’ve gave a bigger pieces judging by the price of $6.99, but it was a really small slice O__O” Now we know not to get their desserts next time XD The waffle size was good though, for $9 you get quite a thick waffle. But the atmosphere of the place is nice, just the wallpapers always bothers me XDD Why don’t they just use a ivory with a slight design!??? Why that random colored floral wallpaper?????? Makes no sense!! It brought down the level of classiness .__.” To make it up, they have a lovely selection of classical music and a welcoming rose aroma in the restaurant.

Afterwards, we went to the basement and saw pretty butterfly decorations hanging from the ceiling which led me to take photos by the columns. Hehehe I make all my friends do a photoshoot for me 8D Here’s Katherine’s photographer moment! (Though I edited the image with my iphone and photoshopped out unnecessary background details LOL)

A friend thought I went to Europe for these photos LOL I wish I can go to Europe!! I really want to visit Paris and London~~ When I get a boyfriend, I’m going to drag him with me :3

After our mini photoshoot, Katherine did my hair as promised. People kept staring at us and some guy even gave us a thumbs up WTH LOL I don’t even know – 3 -” It came out soooooo pretty!!! So we’re planning another mini photoshoot with the hairstyle, most likely going to be a casual bride look ^_^ Also, the conair bobby pins we bought at Target is really good, so if anyone is looking to buy a new pack of bobby pins definitely check out the 90count Conair bobbypins XD For only $2.24 + tax, it gives a really good hold!

Originally we kept the hair down like that, but she thought it looked unbalanced so she put it up in a bun, something very different than what I usually do with my hair, so it was a fun look for me.

My hairstylist and me!!! Isn’t she so cute :3 I love her dusty pink blazer too. I bought the same one when we went shopping, but blazers just aren’t for me so I had to return it T__T” I don’t think structured looks really match me >”<

It was really nice catching up with her, and talking about all my problems with life LOL Thank you for being patient and listening to me ramble on and on XD Did you know that I knew her since 7th grade?????? So it’s been 9 years!!!!! That’s crazyyyyyyy. I’m so glad we kept in touch all this time, and became even closer and closer, one of my bestest friends :3 ♥ Can’t wait for summer so we can hang out more!!

Did a very natural look today. I was a bit scared to walk out of my house without a face caked with make up since I had heavier make up the day before for the photoshoot, but some ladies came up to me and complimented me saying they thought I was pretty, so I felt relieved XD I really have some selfesteem/self conscious issue hahahaha

Eyes
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow in Copper Chic
e.l.f. Studio Pigment Eyeshadow in Golden Goddess
Car Mela Mascara Composition (which is really weird to use but I’ll write a review after I use it one more time)

No eyeliner yesterday! I hate removing eyeliner, it takes foreverrrr, or maybe I’m just bad at removing it XD I wore blue circle lenses, but for some reason everytime I wear the blue ones I get an eye infection, and these are daily ones that I don’t rewear!! So I’m kind of scared of wearing them again LOL

I’m also excited because Katherine told me about possible collaborations with her friends since one does jewelry and the other one is good with nails. So if possible, maybe I can model those for them, and if it does happen I would be so happy because I always wanted to do those kind of collaborations! So just waiting to see what happens now. Life is getting exciting for me. I’m finally enjoying life thanks to my bestest friends that helps me view life differently ^__^

Yukata Shoot Today!

beautiful clear sky at the garden

Today was a beautiful day at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with two of my bestest friends, perfect for our photoshoot today! Sandy wanted to do a yukata photoshoot, and since it was free admission on Tuesdays, we went today. Sarah also came to help us out with light reflector and checking to make sure if things looked alright. I have two yukata that I bought on my trip in Japan a few years back, but we went with pink since I look better in pink than blue hehe.

my pink cherry blossom print yukata

Sandy said looked like an anime character in that photo, so I decided to upload it as a sneak peak to the photoshoot. She uploaded an edited photo, but I want to wait for more and choose my favorite ones to put here ^^ It looks really nice so far, I’m always at awe how she edits the photos!

Today was also crazy! We thought if we go on a weekday there will be less people, but there were still a lot of people and people were non stop taking photos of me! Where ever we go, a crowd gathers and I see iphones and cameras in my direction @__@” Some people asked me to take photos with them. I felt so bad because it made it difficult for Sandy to do her photoshoot >__<” But good thing that was mostly in the beginning, and plus if we went during Sakura Matsuri, we would have never got our shoot done haha. I always wondered though, what do these strangers do with the photos!? One guy said he was putting it in his portfolio and gave me his buisness card. Some lady filmed me, and I thought she would walk away after she said thank you, but she just picked up her camera and filmed me in another angle and did that like 5 times!! LOL I dont get it!! Some people also followed me. It was such an interesting experience. I had people take or ask me for photos on train before, but I never had this much people LOL

sakura blossoms :3

I’m also glad we got to go while the sakura blossoms were still plenty on the trees! It’s like what Katherine said to me before, it’s so warm that they would probably be blossomed before the matsuri. They’re so pretty, especially when the wind blew and the petals scattered down. I think Sandy tried taking a photo when that happened, but not sure if it came out good or not XD

magnolia flowers

After about 280 shots, I switched into my normal outfit for the second shoot. It was this high-low skirt with a lace top and my Liz Lisa belt. I thought there wouldn’t be anyone following me with cameras after this, but we still saw so many people taking photos of me @__@” I don’t know why LOL!! I’m a normal person!!

sarah & me

Sneak peak of second outfit XD I didn’t take one of myself on my iphone >_<” So I have to wait for Sandy to upload the photos~ I also wanted to take a photo with her but she didn’t want to today T__T”

sarah as my make up artist

Yesterday I went to Sarah’s dorm and she played make up artist and tried to replicate Yang Mi’s makeup pictured above, and the photo below it is what she got at the end. She admitted it doesn’t really look like it (I think it’s mainly because I’m not as pretty as her X__X), but I still think it was pretty what she did for me ^__^ I think it’s fun when other people put make up for me since I’m usually the one doing it for myself, so it’s nice when someone else can do it for me hehe XD

Kanno Yui make up

For the make up for today’s shoot, I used Kanno Yui’s as reference. The one I used was the image above but with her other lip color. I thought it’ll be fun to take a photo of each few steps I did and see the progress XD So this is my first time, and also first time showing my unedited photo with no make up on my blog > U <“!

I think the concealer and eyeshadow already made a big difference! I was able to use my new make up that came in yesterday just in time for today’s shoot.

April Fool’s! – I still have long hair XD

Hihi~ I know I only put it up for a short bit, but I had the short hair pics and joke on facebook for a long time and tricked a lot of my friends (except those that knows me too well and those that are wig experts) to thinking I cut my hair short. Short hair is fun, but definitely not for me or my style >__<” I also started getting depressed because it seems like a lot of people preferred my short hair more D: unless they were just saying that to be nice XD

"君の笑顔が目を閉じるたびいつも浮かんできて
誰にも言えない 心の中をずっと乱していく
もう忘れたい 忘れられない
もう何もかも分からない
どうしたらいいの?
言えない…
言えない…
I love you?"
- "Sakura, I Love you?" 西野 カナ

To make myself feel better, and because a friend was like “OMG this is so different from your liz lisa!!” I wore my favorite Liz Lisa dress and did a self photoshoot. I guess it was a success because my sister’s boyfriend was like “Who took these for you!?” Haha same thing with the previous selcas I took, Franklin was like “Oh who took it for you?” I guess I can do self photoshoots now 😛 I’m still looking for a model friend to practice photography on >__<”

I always wanted to take lying down poses (all of these were taken laying down) but I always looked soooo weird!! I realized, lying down photos looks best when you have no bangs or the really side ones (like the one I have now). So good thing I never gave in, because there were so many occasions where I wanted to just cut my bangs short again XD

I’m also really glad I never cut my hair that short because the guy I liked commented on how he didn’t like short hair LOL so I was like oh no!! I must hurry and reveal that it was a prank XD My sister, her boyfriend, Grace, and Katherine thinks long hair suits me better too, so I’m glad :3

I did a really quick make up (took me about 10-15 mins?) based on Hyuna’s make up in one of her recent photoshoots. Make up used:

Eyes
Dollywink eyeliner (pencil and liquid)
Stilla Eyeshadow in Cloud
Tarte jewerly box set in cameo and idol for eyes and a dark bronze for eyebrows
Kate White Eyeliner Pencil
Fiberwig mascara

Skin
Revlon Photoready concealer color 02
Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful
Lorac Starry-eyed baked eye shadow trio in Movie Star (Used the lightest color as highlight)

I was originally going to take sitting down photos, but it looked really awkward! I realized my Liz Lisa dress didn’t show up in my photos XD So I’m going to put a photo of Yui Kanno wearing the dress! It’s from their Spring 2011 collection, and it’s one of my favoriteeee dress from them ^_^ I hope I can do a photoshoot with it hehe

Haven’t listened to Japanese songs in awhile, but I found Kana Nishino♥♥♥’s “Sakura, I love you?” and fell in love!! I really like the interior designs of the set up, the white & the black outfits, and her hairstyles. I want to try it :3 Probably going to try her make up on wednesday when I meet up with Katherine ♥ (Who’s so nice and going to braid my bangs for me for this hairstyle I really want to try!) I’m so excitedddd :3
