Ally & Mommy

Ally is the 2-year-old daughter of lawyers Atty. Richie Ramos-Pilares and Atty. Jun Pilares. She was bursting with life that afternoon and it was a joy to take photos of her. It’s fun trying to keep up with her as she goes from one activity to another.

Ally looks like her mommy

She rides her bike

Then she writes. (notice how she holds the pen)

That’s all for now. 🙂

It’s great to be able to capture the smile of child, but remember that you have to be swift because you never know how long that smile will last.

*Thank you so much for the time, Ms. Richie!


LCLC Class and Graduation Photos

The month of March marks the end of the school year. I had the opportunity to take class photos and graduation photos at LCLC for nursery and kinder students. I have to say that it is really a challenge to take photos of kids below seven years old. Some of them are easy to shoot but others would take more than ten photos. You have to be friendly and patient when it comes to kids. I tried making a conversation with them, making them laugh before pressing the shutter button or even calling their funny classmates to make them smile. Challenging but fun!

Some photos of the kids while waiting for their classmates.

Next are the graduation photos of the kinder students. Some of the kids are very serious, some smile a lot and others just smirk.

The following kid is just cool (check out his hair) and so full of energy! He’s fun and he know how to pose in front of the camera. When his classmates are nervous and showing a frown in front of the camera, he knows how to make them smile and laugh.

Like what I previously said, it was challenging and also tiring. But then, it’s worth it. In the end, the kids had fun especially in the wacky class photo. And when I already finished packing up and was getting ready to go, they all eagerly said “thank you”, gave me big smiles and waved goodbye.

Retreat 2012 (LIFE)

For this year’s school retreat, I am not the official photographer. After several years of being the person who documents the yearly school event, I guess it is really time to pass on the baton. I am glad with this arrangement because it gave me the freedom to shoot at my own pace and to take photos of things that are interesting. I am trying to hone the creative part in me. This year, I told myself that my photos should have a story, a picture that would stay in my mind because there was something interesting about it when I took a photo of it. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Patience and Perseverance

Two Different Pathways


Quiet and Peace

Will the lines meet?

God cares no matter how infinitesimal it seems.
