Baby Andy’s Saturday Afternoon

Baby Andy has brought all her toys during the shoot; it was like any other playtime for her. And she had the best of all smiles as she spent time with her parents just playing and hugging each other. 🙂

Sophia’s Little Home

I love it when my couples ask me to shoot them again, this time with their new bundle of joys. Whether it be birthdays, baptism, or portraits of their babies, it’s fulfilling to see their family growing and capture their milestones.

Here is cute Sophia, parents of our lovely couple, Raymund and Rhea, at Pinto Art Gallery in Antipolo 🙂

Baby Moira’s Afternoon in the Fields

One of Imagine Nation’s couple now has a new gift to be thankful for–Moira. A cheerful baby, Moira spent an afternoon in the fields of UP Diliman doing what she love, playing with stuffed toys and her piano, reading, and of course, spending time with her parents. Mirzi, her mom, is a breastfeeding and cloth diaper advocate. Our shoot was a load of cuteness! 🙂   LIZ_1352 LIZ_1481 LIZ_1433

Christian and Monique: Road Trip + Lazy Weekends

In an engagement shoot, I find couples do best when you involve them with what they’re familiar with and what they love doing. They’re more confident, at ease and natural, and they enjoy the shoot. Most of all, the photos speak well of them. And it’s exactly what happened in Christian and Monique’s engagement. Their road trip theme to me felt like a real one as we hopped from one place to another, walking and seeing what the bush, mountain or road got to offer, and shooting. The mood was like let’s-get-somewhere-and-do-nothing-on-a-lazy-weekend.

Makoy and Gie: Christmas Love

One wacky groom and one shy type bride. They may be complete opposites, having nothing in common except friends (you can check out how their friends played a unique and important part in their prenup shoot here), they complemented each other’s lives and for sure will make their marriage life more interesting. Gie loves Christmas and the lights, and it sure felt like it as they, their families and friends filled the air with warmth and smiles.

Wilson and Jamie: We Play, We Love

LIZ_1096

From pillow fights, to bicycle rides, to bubble mania, to a visit in a museum and finally to holi powder bash, this engagement shoot had the most activities done which Wilson and Jamie, and their friends, had prepared.  It was another engagement shoot for me that had the couple’s friends’ participation involved; one of their friends, a DIY savvy, prepped up their tandem bike with flowers in rustic basket and colorful, patterned banderitas.  They also helped out in their props like blowing bubbles at the couple. And at times, being like how old friends are, they were all just cheering the couple while shooting and taking a snap of them with their camera phones. The shoot was wrapped up by everyone throwing holi powder and getting messy! I enjoyed every bit of this shoot 🙂

Venue: Museum and pillow shots at Pinto Art Gallery; Bicycle and bubble shoot somewhere just outside Pinto Art; Holi powder shoot somewhere in Marikina 🙂

Makoy and Gie: Good Friends + Good Food = Love

When their friends heard of their engagement shoot, one of them, a chef, offered to cook and have a small salu-sal0 for the couple and the rest of their friends after the shoot.  I then had the idea to include them in the shoot! Why not have a cook out with their friends for their prenup? And since Makoy and Gie got nothing in common except friends, it totally made sense to let them join and became as props! I was amazed to find out that everyone was excited to join the shoot!

Makoy and Gie have known each other since grade school, but only became a couple in college. We went around a few places in UP LB that are memorable to them, like their ‘tambayan’ and the oblation.  Then off to their friend’s house where everyone was preparing barbecue, drinks, tacos, and the set up of the place. So Makoy and Gie stepped in and helped out. As soon as they got together, everything became so natural and spontaneous. There were a few portraits and a few of their friends, aside from participating, also helped in the shoot that I just had to shoot some behind the scenes. This part was so full of laughter and support. I found this shoot-as-it-happen kind of engagement unique, touching and really personal. Kudos to Makoy and Gie and their friends. Oh, and the food was delicious!

Homey Duo: Rony and Jona

Rony and Jona spend their weekends in each other’s houses, relaxing and constructing Gundam action figures. He assembles, she paints. Rony must be lucky to find a girl who shares the same hobby as his. A rare find. 🙂

Ganito Kami Ngayon: Greene and Meliza’s Engagement

A view of how Greene and Meliza are as a couple (and probably a preview as well after the wedding bells). Truly, life is much more colorful for these two, captured through a bit of role playing, goofing around, and simply enjoying each other’s company. 🙂
