Aria Unleashed

She came with her hair half - tied, since she was very conscious about it. She was shy and she doesn't know  what to do in front of the camera. We told her to relax and throw away shyness. Finally with few instructions, slowly she was able to compose herself in front of the camera.

As we move on, a fellow photographer suggested untying her hair, which she was not convinced at all. We tried to persuade her and eventually her hair was untied. We were surprise and we were fascinated by Aria’s curly and bulky hair. There you go, beauty behind the shy teenage girl with hair tied were unleashed. She’s lovely and really looks great in my view finder which thrilled me and my partner Cher.

This shoot was made for Getz Kit by Unique and Unison Enterprise. Credit goes to Getz Kit, Aria the model and KL Pinoy Photography Buffs.

Little one's Playtime

While his busy with his toys, i took advantage of the moment. This is one of zoe's routine on weekdays where only the two of us left at home. I had to call him by his name so he could face the camera before clicking the shutter. Here are his playtime moments at nine months old.

By the Window

Among his new skills recently is standing on his own with support. He loves doing it while in his crib where he can walk using the crib's frames as his guide. Aside from the crib, he love standing by our room's window perhaps to have a glimpse of the outside world.

Zoe's Thumb Sucking Moment

I’m glad to be reunited with nikie. I miss shooting, so while baby sitting my eight months adorable boy, I took shots while he is roaming around the living area with his walker and was hoping to capture something to update this blog. And just before he through tantrum, I was able to capture this. Here's to me a come back shot from three months off shooting.

Event Photography

Have you ever been into big event such us concerts or political events where by chance you’ve got you’re best dslr buddy onboard? Isn’t it nice and great to take photos during the event? It’s a great opportunity for every amateur and photography enthusiast especially to those who are aspiring on taking event photography seriously.

If you are not an official photographer in the event, you have to understand that crowd control is very common especially in big events. This is to maintain the peace and order during the event. So expect that you will not have a full access to the media corner so you have limited chances of getting the best picture. Media corner is usually separated from the general audience by a stanchion or a velvet rope or sometimes a barricades. In this case, it is best to have a telephoto lens with at least an aperture of 3 or for sharper picture go for 2.8 or 1.4 aperture. Telephoto lens will fill in the distance limit that you have during the event. However, it is best to understand first the capability of your telephoto lens before the actual shoot. Familiarise with all the function as well as your body so that you won’t mess up during the event and you don’t have to regret about it.

Good luck and Happy shooting guys!

The Veil: my first, my version

Months after attending Manny Librodo’s talk in Kuala Lumpur, finally I was able to generate something from what I have learned in that short inspirational talk.

This was an unplanned shoot. I was at my inlaws house when I saw that veil and thought of my husband niece andrene, will justify what I have in mind. And so, inspired by manny lib and the veil, from the balcony where there’s an adequate natural light, I took this shot. The shoot did not only satisfy me but have opened to a new discovery. I was really surprised when this little girl who is only five years old can clearly follow my instruction and knows how to project in front of camera. Making myself eager to shoot more of her. Hopefully.

Learning to Walk

We’ve been counting baby Z’s milestone for five months now. On his fourth month he learned to stand on his feet with support. He also learned to kick his legs and on his fifth month, he learned to take few steps. Thank God he’s got strong toes and knees. I know it’s too early, but we’ve been so eager to see him finally stand and walk in his own. There are several baby shoes waiting for his happy feet to fit in. Thank you very much to the generous sponsors; the god fathers and god mothers.

My goal is to see him walk before he turns one year old. I know most moms would love to see their special little one walk before he turn one year old. That’s why as early as fourth month, I continually encourage him to stand by holding him under his arms and let him take few steps. If you are doing the same, you need to be very careful not to strain his legs. A fifteen minutes session twice or thrice will help him develop strength in his legs. Perhaps, on the next few months we will be buying his walker to help him walk.

I am so glad with this latest development of our little one. Everyday I am looking forward of seeing new development. If you have a toddler, check out this safety walking tip video.

Baby Z: On his 5th Month

Today, our little one turned five months. I cook something for our little one’s small and simple celebration. He’s been doing so well for the past weeks, except for the colds and cough that he got for almost a week now. I took his fifth month portrait. Thanks to my sister and my cousins for helping me with the DIY studio set up. This is the second time that I am posting a portrait taken by a point and shot camera. My lovely nikie had a new master, actually his original master – my husband. For now, I’ll be using a point and shot camera until august of this year.

The Milk Chocolate Spoons

During our trip back to manila, I found this cool milk chocolate spoons at the duty free shop at the low cost carrier terminal in Kuala Lumpur. It’s a local product of Malaysia. Aside from the cool shape of these chocolates, I was so curious about it taste. But unfortunately, I wasn’t able to taste them. I left it on the fridge until our last day in manila and eventually forget that I actually have them in the fridge. Anyways atleast I took a snap of it.

If I were A Butterfly

If I were a butterfly
I'd thank you Lord for giving me wings....
For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me,
For making me....

Preserve those Memories

We are now on a digital age but some of us may still be using those film age cameras. Digital phase has brought us convenience in sharing pictures to your family and friends. No need for print outs, just plug in your camera to your computer and you can instantly view and share your photos. For those who are not into digital cameras, you can try photo scanning services for an easy way of picture sharing. It's also a best way of preserving your photos that will build memories of a life time.

A picture draws memories whether you are into digital or nondigital photos, that’s why it really pays preserving your photos. Have your pictures in a photobook. Online or hard copy photobook, the choice is yours, then you have your memories of a life time.
