Cody: 3rd Birthday

November 18, 2007
Cafe Villa, Fort Bonifacio

This is another long overdue post, especially because Jade has probably been my most enthusiastic client so far. She actually wrote raves about me in her blog before she even booked me for her son Cody's birthday party! Hehehe. I felt very flattered but I was actually a bit worried about meeting her expectations.:D Fortunately, Jade was even nicer in person. And she put together a great party with cute and unique details so it wasn't very difficult to get good shots.

The theme of the party was "Barney goes to school". So, kids came in their school uniform, the party host was dressed up like a teacher, and the kids' tables were set up like a mini classroom. I thought that was very creative. The kids even had laminated ID cards for name tags.

Anyway, here are a few photos from the party.

One of the first things that caught my eye were the colorful balloons. You rarely see traditional helium balloons in kiddie parties these days so it was a refreshing sight for me. I loved it.

Jade forgot to bring a copy of the invitation but fortunately, I found a couple of them lying around just when the guests were leaving. Very unique design.

And here's the top of the lovely cake.

I love Fiorgelato! And here's Cody enjoying his cone before the party.

A quick family portrait before the party. We were only able to get a few shots because Cody wanted to get back to his Fiorgelato.:D

Playing with the balloons after the party.

Toby Jarred: Baptism and Dedication

November 17, 2007
Baptism: St. Paul the Apostle Parish
Dedication and reception: Dencio's Capitol Hills

Toby is the cute little baby boy of my wedding make-up artist EJ Litiatco. EJ and her hubby Nohmer have decided to welcome their son into the Christian World in a celebration that brought together their respective religious backgrounds in one day.

EJ's family (including her parents, siblings, nephews, and nieces) LOVE to be photographed and I had a great time being their official photographer that day. They are such a cool bunch (especially EJ's mom.:D).

We started with a short family portrait session at their home (EJ's parents' home). When my sister and I arrived at their place, we were pleasantly surprised to see every one dressed and made up. I loved it. (I will be posting photos from that session in another entry.)

After the portrait session, every one changed into more casual outfits and we all trooped down to the church for the baptism.

And then we were off to Dencio's where the dedication was held.

Oh yeah, it was also Nohmer's birthday the day before, so this was actually also a belated birthday celebration for him.

Then came the yummy food, of course.:)

And then we took more pictures. Lots of them.

Here are Nohmer, EJ, and Toby with the tarp I designed for them.:D

Now you know where EJ gets her good looks.

EJ's whacky shot. Hehehe.

Toby's lovely cousins.

And finally, my favorite shot of Toby. (And believe me, I took tons of photos of him.) Look at those bright eyes!

Zach Owen

November 10, 2007
Barangay Pavillion, Parang, Marikina City

Bliss was a labmate at UP back in the old days, and she was also one of my sexy preggy models when I came up with some free maternity pictorials over a year ago. So, I guess I could say that was when I first met Zach. Almost a year later, I met him again, this time in person, when we did his pre-event photo shoot (which I haven't gotten around to posting yet). And then, about a month ago (I know, I've been a bit behind in updating this blog.) I went to take photos at his 1st birthday party. I always feel honored when clients come back to have me photograph another milestone in their child's life, and doing Zach's party was no different.

The party was held in Marikina, just a couple of blocks from Pete's parents' house. It was just a small gathering of Bliss and Jerry's family and friends, but everyone, even the adults seemed to enjoy the program a lot. And as always, I loved taking pictures of Jerry and Bliss, who, as I've mentioned before have very bright smiles always ready for the camera. And I think Zach may have just gotten this from them, too.

Check out the pictures below:

The theme of the party was Barney and I loved the little purple details including the little Barney stuffed toys which some of the guests were able to take home.

Before the guests started arriving, I asked Bliss if we could take some family portraits outside while the light was still perfect. I'm glad they agreed because even when we only had a few minutes to do it, we were able to get really nice shots. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Like I said, these guys have GREAT smiles!
The little girl in the middle is Zach's equally cute cousin Bhlue.:)
