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!

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.

Thank you Verniece!

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.


Fun photo shoot of Allie Vy at their house. The sunlight is just perfect!
