Tyler turns 3 and Riley turns 1!

August 22, 2010
55 Events Place

Their actual birthdays are just a couple of days apart, so Mommy Cheryll and Daddy Aliang decided to throw one big party for both boys instead.  When we walked into the venue, we were greeted with a really a jungle set-up--complete with green swags and vines along the ceiling, balloon trees and miniature animals scattered around the tables, and a big safari-themed cake for Riley (Tyler had his own cake, of course!)!

Below are some of the photos from the party.

Chek out the cool invite with a bamboo frame and tiny plastic leaves to complete the look!

These were the centerpieces.

And if you looked closely, these cute details were scattered on each table.

The giant cake for Riley along with smaller cakes and cupcakes.

And here was Tyler's cool "Thomas the Train"-themed cake and cupcakes!

Since this was Riley's first birthday, I was instructed to get more portrait shots of Riley.  We were able to spend a few minutes with him at the lounge.

Cute shirt!:)

For the party, Riley changed into this safari-themed outfit.  Big brother Tyler had one too!

Jiggles the Balloon Lady was there!

Lou Hilario was also there!

First one to blow his birthday candle was Riley.

And then we all went to the other side of the stage to blow out Tyler's birthday candle.:)

Before we left, I just had to take a few shots of the kids identical shoes.:)

Bong + Jacq = Iyah

About a month before they came home for a short vacation, Jacq emailed me about doing a family portrait session. She, her husband Bong and little girl Iyah are based abroad and they wanted to take nice outdoor portraits while they were in town for a few days last July 2010. We started the shoot at UP Diliman, and then moved to Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife.

Below are some of my favorites from the shoot.

How cute is Iyah?;)

Iyah has a very mysterious yet charming smile. Her daddy describes it as a Mona Lisa smile, and I couldn't agree more.

I love the colors in this one.

After a while, we headed to our second location.

I love these next two.

After a short break and an outfit change...

Love that smile!

Darla: Baptism

August 15, 2010
Christ the King Parish, Lower Chapel
Christ the King Function Rooms

I will be photographing Darla's 1st birthday party in a few weeks so it's only right that I post the photos from her baptism already.  I've been photographing Darla even before she was born...seriously!  I shot Christine's maternity portraits when she was 7 months pregnant with Darla.  And then a couple of weeks after Darla was born, we did her newborn portrait session.  I met Darla again a few months later for her christening.  I have been photographing this family for a few years now and they've become one of my favorite families to work with so I was excited to get the chance to work with them again.:)

Below are some of the photos from Darla's baptism.

Mommy Christine used some of the photos we took during Darla's newborn session for some of the details of the event like the tarp, giveaway tags, etc.  Below is just one part of the tri-fold invitation that Christine designed featuring one of the photos from the portrait session.

The lovely party dress that Darla wore during the reception.

Christine customized these beautiful candles herself!

Some photos of the ceremony.

I love how Darla kept looking at the camera!.:)

Some details from the reception.  Balloon decorations were by Yanple.  Tarp design by Christine.

Balloon centerpieces (by Yanple) and the lovely cake.

Party favors.

In the middle of the reception, Darla decided she wanted to take a nap. So, I took photos of her while she was sleeping.

Mommy Christine also made this headband for Darla! She's so crafty, isn't she?

While waiting for Darla to wake up so we could take some family photos, I followed big sister Dana around with the camera. I've photographed Dana before and I love taking pictures of her because she's so pretty. :)

Finally, Darla was awake and was fortunately in the mood for pictures.:)

One of my favorites!

The two beautiful sisters.:)
