De Luna Family and a Blog Feature

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to take photos of the family of mommy blogger Ms. Martine de Luna. Instead of going to the studio or other venues, Ms. Martine chose the home of her parents, which is the same home where she grew up. It was a nice summer afternoon and their son, Vito, started to play at the garden. It is pleasant to see the family enjoying the outdoors. Vito played with plants, toys and water. His parents and grandparents also joined him.

Verniece Skates

It is my first time to shoot at the skating rink and I must say that it is really a challenge. You have to adjust to the light inside the rink, catch the movement of the skater, avoid bumping into other skaters, plus find a stable position when shooting while wearing skates. It was quite difficult but I hope I get to shoot at the rink again. Photography and figure skating are two of the things that I really love. I enjoyed this one!

Kiddo-preneur Summer Bazaar 2012

The Kiddo-preneur Summer Bazaar 2012 is an event where kids could learn and practice their entrepreneurship skills even at a young age. Kids sold different kinds of products such as food, artwork, toys, accessories, books and even services. It is wonderful to see the kids full of life and enthusiasm while promoting and selling their products at their wonderfully decorated booths.

The kids are taught not only to earn money from what they are selling but also to save, invest, donate and spend wisely. The event is supported by certain banks in the Philippines as well as The Philippine Stock Exchange. There are also charities present which are being supported by the event and the kids’ businesses.

The Juantrepreneurs

Towards the end of the event, the kids are still vibrant and energetic while selling their products. They would even approach you, ask you questions and talk to you. Over all, I enjoyed attending the event and I learned so much from the kids. Business is not all about selling. It’s also about having fun, being creative, using your talents and skills, saving, investing and we should not forget, sharing and helping.

Verniece and Her Pink Skates

The figure skating season just ended and many new talented skaters won the competitions. Filipino skaters are not far behind in spite of living in a land where it does not snow and training in a country with only two skating rinks. Hopefully, we can see Filipinos in the podium of the World Figure Skating Championships and the Winter Olympics in the near future.

I had the privilege to do a photo shoot of Verniece. She herself has won many medals from figure skating competitions here in the Philippines and abroad. This pretty and sweet girl started to skate since she was six years old and now, she is also a fashion model.


We had a great afternoon. It was fun and easy to take photos of Verniece and we enjoyed talking to each other especially about figure skating.
