St. Francis Church
St. Francis Shangri-La Place
Party theme: Hello Kitty
This was the first event that I did for Mommy Jap and Daddy Loelle. However, it felt like I've known them for so long because I already did a couple of portrait sessions for them last year. I first met them when we did Jap's maternity portraits in early 2009. A few months later, I photographed Jap's family on her mom's birthday. I was excited to finally meet Jeanne who was only a few months old then.
Last March, I worked with this wonderful family again to celebrate Baby Jeanne's baptism and 1st birthday. As always, Jap went all out on the details. And my camera had a feast!
Here are some photos. We started at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel to take photos of the details and to do a short pictorial with the birthday family.
Most brides could only dream of wearing a Veluz gown on their wedding day. Well, Jeanne had a Veluz gown during her baptism!
The cute invite.
A couple of shots of our lovely birthday girl before leaving for the church.:)
Look how her eyes twinkle!

The church was just a block away from the hotel.
And the party venue was just a couple of minutes away from the the church.

I loved the colors of the balloons!
Favors for the guests.
The kids enjoying the program.
I always take candid shots of the guests. This one just jumped out on me because it's just too cute.:)
We tried taking more shots while the party was on-going. But Jeanne wasn't in the mood anymore.

The magic show.
