Megan: 1st birthday party

May 15, 2010
Valle Verde 4 Clubhouse

Last year, I photographed Megan's baptism.  Last summer, I met up with the family again (Daddy Buddy and Mommy Tintin are friends from college)--this time for Megan's first birthday party.  It was quite nice seeing some old friends that we rarely get to see anymore.  Pete came along, but he was there as a guest while I worked.:P I didn't really mind though. It didn't really feel like work when I was surrounded by friends.

Below are some of my favorite photos from the party.

The cupcake tower.  The cupcake with the cat reminds me of Tintin. She loves cats.:D

Jacque and her crew from Party Boosters did the lovely venue decorations.

Here's Megan!

Some candid shots of Megan with Mommy Tintin.

Flooch was there as host...

Magic show.

Cayden: 1st birthday party

May 9, 2010
Fun Ranch, Tiendesitas

One of the things I love about my job is that I get to meet people from different places. I would say about half of my clients are based abroad. Thay come home just to celebrate the big events in their lives with family and friends. And it's always a great honor for me to be given the opportunity to be part of their celebrations.

Mommy Cheche, Daddy Tantan, and Cayden are based in the U.K (I love how Cheche and Tantan talk to Cayden in straight Filipino. They know it'll only be a matter of time before he gets a British accent, so they say they might as well teach him his native language now so he doesn't forget.) The summer heat was a great shock to Cayden, who I would imagine is used to much lower temperatures.  And because of it, he got really sick just over week before his birthday party.  Fortunately, he recovered just in time and was able to enjoy the party.:)

See that huge dent on the upper left side of the cake? Well, apparently, Cayden got to the cake before I did.:D

Some cute details.

Cayden looking very cute and healthy!

We still had time to take a few shots after the party.

Cinni: 1st birthday party

May 8, 2010
Shakey's El Pueblo

I photographed Mommy Vanessa and Daddy Oliver's wedding two years ago. Last year, I got an email from Vanessa telling me of the great news, that they now have a baby girl named Cinni. (Lovely name, huh?)  I met the trio for the first time when I took their family portraits late last year, and then a few months later, I was back to photograph Cinni's 1st birthday party.  It always amazes me how much a baby can grow in a few months' time.  Cinni was still as adorable as I remembered her though.

We started shooting at their home where I got to photograph the details and hang out with the family for a bit.

Here was my favorite person for the day.:)

Vanessa took care of the littlest details.  They were all cute, by the way.

On the left, Cinni was sitting on the biggest present she got the day.  She couldn't wait to open it and ended up playing with it before we left for the venue (right photo).

I took a couple of shots of the family at their home before heading for the party.

More lovely details!

Cinni seemed to be confused why there were suddenly a lot of people all around her.

Mommy and Daddy seemed to be enjoying themselves though.:)

I love this one.

When most of the guests had left, I asked the family for a couple more shots. These two are my favorites from the day.:)
