Thankful for this chance to be part of this BiG surprise debut party for Liza. She is one of the nicest, most down-to-earth sweetest girls I have ever met. I first met her thru Tito @ogie_diaz who has been my friend for years. Then had the privilege to shoot her Ad campaign for Mega Tuna & from then on we planned the party with Tita Joni. Thank you Ogie and tita for the trust.  We love you Liza! Happy 18th birthday again! A photo posted by Niceprintphoto (@niceprintphoto) on Jan 3, 2016 at 8:12am PST
