Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.

Weird post on Christmas day right? But this is honestly a long time photo that I got inspired to edit just a few hours ago. 

So here's what my day went and what inspired me. My aunt me and my cousin Jhelvy went together to pick up our cake and cupcakes for tonight, while walking going to Robinsons fuente, I saw children and babies asking alms and laying down in the middle of the sidewalk on a Christmas day. Every time that I witness such scenario, all I could think about is of how can I help and If only I can do something, if only I am rich, if only I have money.. if only I CAN. The thing is I don't even have some, it just made me realize of how lucky I am to have a shelter, a home and a family that looks out for each other.

I know.. all I ranted was useless. All what I just typed in didn't do any help or anything better to those kids on the streets. But I did manage to give my "puto" to that little boy hehe It's too little but I really hoped that I did something good.

God put me in a battlefield so I'll know what to do, when there'll be a rough road again, then I'll be tougher.

Then we went to emall, looked for an empty space at the parking lot.. and since it's as if there's no available space and we just have to meet up with someone, we just standby beside those cars that are parked so we are sort of in the middle of the road. Anyway, I decided to meet up my other friend so I grabbed my cousin to accompany me.. just a couple of steps away from where we "standby" our car, I saw an empty space, I was standing there to make sure no one gets it first and I waited for my aunt to properly park. A group of people then approached us, stood in the middle of that space and told me that they are already parked there, so I asked them "then where's your car?" he told me that it has to turn around for them to park and I am not that perfectly dumb to not understand of what's happening.. 

My heart is already palpitating fast and my hands are cold as hell, we argued and didn't bother to continue it.. It's Christmas.. and as much as possible I don't want to argue with anyone. So I let it pass.. :))))

My whole point is that, I have realized a lot today. One is that, I really have a lot to thank God for. I may not have the best year, but I truly learned a lot. I may not have been experiencing that "hayahay" life I once had but I am just too lucky coz I am learning how to stand on my own feet. I may not have the perfect family but God gave me a perfectly imperfect one, that I call HOME. 

Christmas is not what you have, not how many gifts you have received but of how people touch your lives and how you touch theirs. May it be those street kids you gain inspiration from or the little thing you do for them. Perhaps it's not about the brightest Christmas lights you own but the brightest smiles in your home. Maybe it's not about how full your table is for Noche Buena, but of how full of happiness when you and your family gather together to celebrate Christmas.

If you could just let us BREATHE

So just give me one good reason
Tell me why should I stay
Cause I don't wanna waste another moment
In saying things that we never meant to say

And I take it just a little bit
And I hold my breath and count to ten
and I've been waiting for a chance to let you in

If I just breathe 
let it fill the space between
you'll see everything will be alright
every little piece of me you'll see everything will be alright

If you could just let us breathe...

--- Michelle Branch---

is it just me? or the photos uploaded in any blog sites are just crappy??? well anyway, just follow this LINK to see a better quality of it. :)

I am supposedly in bed right now with my mama because she's sleeping in for the night but it seems like I can't breathe.. I got bothered with the things we talked about over dinner. All I want is her to be happy.. She's a very good person but why can't she be given a chance to be happy and be herself? :(

If only we could wake up in the morning, spending time cooking breakfast and chit chat 
If only I can see her genuine laugh and smile again
If only I can give that genuine smile and laugh to her
If only I can take all those hurt within her..


If we could just BREATHE.

Cold Feet

I guess I should post more of my conceptual photos here. hmmm... 

I have moved out from our house and currently living on my own.. and I'm scared. I'm not scared of ghosts, the fact that I am just living with myself nor frightened of not being in our own home. I'm scared.. scared of this new environment I am in right now. How I wish there'll be someone I can live with here. I don't wanna sleep the whole night (oh wait, do I really sleep? haha)

I actually have no idea why photos uploaded in any blog sites are in CRAPPY QUALITY! tsk!

It has been so long since I last posted something conceptual. I have been busy conceptualizing something about business and stuffs.. YES! I have to earn money.. to live.. haha seriously, I need to earn money to live independently and also for me to learn living without my "parentals". And still, I am still busy meeting up with clients and deadlines LOL now this serves as my photo break! bye!!! :)

When The Sun Goes Down

perper + hiro

An engagement shoot I did for my tita and tito Hiro :)
So we flew to Manila to just have fun and to do their engagement shoot too.
As all you know, I have been wanting to do conceptual engagement shoots, something that the couple reflects their personality or even their personal interests that they share.

So my tita did some shopping, she bought a yukata which Japanese call their garment and for tito Hiro, a barong tagalog! Now you know how fun it is to be with them! and yes! tito Hiro's nationality is Japanese but have been in the Philippines for more or less than 25 years so he's fairly good in speaking in Filipino and Bisaya. He was our tour guide in Manila, it's a shame for us right? A japanese national is touring us pure Filipinos in manila! lol! haha

So anyway, this is just a very simple shoot but with full of LOVE and FUN! and that's what makes it special. A very special memory that is captured through photos. A memory that will always be treasured in our hearts and through a hard copy (printed photos) hahaha :)

So here are the photos! :)

Okay, I'm so sorry for the photo but uuh.. isn't this hilarious???? Cute little baby, I wonder what HE is thinking looking at his uuuh... hahha caught in the act baby! :)

So yeah, that's everything and OH! we stayed and had our shoot at Makati Palace Hotel :) such a nice place too!.. 

My first engagement shoot.. and just what I wanted, an engagement shoot WITH A TWIST! so if you have the weirdest idea for your engagement shoots feel free to contact me at:

let's spread the love.

Let me tour you to my wonderland.. chos! I'm no Athena, but these gorgeous ladies are her descendants! So yeah, we had a shoot yesterday together with..

HMUA: CRISSY YONGCO (click on the link to view her works!) 
assisted by Issa Laya-og
MODELS: Clarivel Bandejas, Kia Villamor and Jonna Alesna of figura group of models
STYLING BY: Issa Laya-og

I have been obsessing with wonderland, flowers, dreamy photos and  other mystical, surreal visual images. So then one day, when RJ Ouano of photomercs, Albert Joey Alojipan and I are having some chit chat, we decided to have a shoot just like what we did a long time ago with my group (BLACKLIST prod.) wherein we organize everything and send invites to photographers, the goal was to showcase our hmuas, stylists, photogs and models.. most especially, our concepts and designs.. but that didn't push through for some unavoidable circumstances. Then It STOPPED.

days before, I have been asking for people to team up with me for a concept shoot, I told them this is just a fun shoot but for me, I don't want it to be JUST a fun shoot! So I invited some of the closest photographer friends I have.. and Issa for the models (clarivel bandejas is a freelance model)

and of course, I contacted personally miss Crissy Young to do the hair and make up.. I honestly love her works because I know she opens her mind to something different and something not the usual. (though this concept is kinda "the usual") hehe.. Check out her works HERE!

Tinker bell's boyfie!

hahaha Just had fun tweaking this up in photoshop!.. This was taken two years ago? I think? and never have posted this anywhere!!!.. So yeah, this photo was shot by my Canon EOS 1000D! Now that's a memory.. 
Browsing through my old photos made me think and realize that I have been into photography for quite a very long time already. I can still remember that time when if you have a DSLR, you are already "something" and slowly as time goes by people are using it as an accessory going to malls and like using it as a social status symbol LOL! (that's why I don't usually carry my camera a lot, coz I don't like people looking at me, it is really awkward!) 

So yeah, I first had my DSLR camera when I was in first year college (USC) and now, it has already been 4 years.. well that 3 years was quite an on and off practice though due to some school stuffs! 

here's a before and after photo
