For winning the Pond's Sis Code Photo Contest last June, we had -- as one of our prizes, an amazing photoshoot at a certain studio in Makati on June 26, 2011 to be published on Chalk Magazine sponsored by Plains & Prints for clothes, Forever 21 for accessories (stylist's own) and shoes from the stylist as well. We also had a makeover for the photoshoot on the day itself! Yipee!
Here are the behind-the-scene shots on our first-ever professional shoot together! Yipee!

A long ride on the way home, we were still a little vain so Nina and I took a few shots while we still had our make up on. The HMUA did a great job on us! :)
|My shocked expression! :))|
|Mah Face Shot! Haha!|
|The Clara-Mara look! :))|
|Awesome lock-jaw effect! Joke! Haha!|
|Our eyeshadows! Haha!|
|Nina's dad who drove us to the shoot! Thanks Tito! :)|
Here it is! We've been waiting for this for so long!
Chalk Magazine August 2011 issue is already out in the market. We made sure that we each got a copy of it so that we could save it for treasuring. LOL.
Hope you grab a copy too! :)
|Our blog (www.charnina.com) is even featured here! If you can see on the lower left of the page.|
We were interviewed and asked a few questions like "How did you two meet?", "Tell us about your blog", "Words of advice for other sisters" and such.
Articles are on Tagalog, Let me know if you'd like to understand what we answered on the interview! :)
I'll translate it to English if somebody requested on the comment section (Right below the title of this post or below the post itself).
