For her baptism, we had a short pictorial with Annika a couple of weeks before the event for her guestbook. For her 1st birthday party, the family came home just a week before the event, so although we still had her pictorial a few days before the event, we only had enough time to prepare signature frames for her.
We had the photo shoot at the family's new condo building. Here are some of the photos.
Annika has grown to be a very pretty little girl!
Mommy Gracita didn't want to be in any of the photos, but I convinced her to at least be part of the background.:D
Love this one.
I love Annika's eyes!
And now for the party photos.

Valle Verde 1 Clubhouse
Party theme: Dora
We started the shoot on the morning of the party at the Crowne Plaza to shoot the details and a few photos of our birthday girl.
A few shots of the pretty Annika.
She kept reaching for our cameras. Finally, I asked Pie (who was 2nd-shooting for me) to lend her camera to Annika for a few minutes.:D
Colorful venue decorations by Polkadots Events (led by Jhoanne Alon).
We took a few minutes to take a few casual family shots outside before the party started.
Back to the party.
The audience enjoying the program.
Flooch was there to provide entertainment.
I loved this part of the day. Annika seemed very happy and really enjoyed waving to her guests towards the end of the party.
