Only babies can give you that genuine candidness you can’t help but capture.
It has been a while since I last drew a portrait. So, when my sister asked me to draw her godson’s photo for her to give as a birthday gift, I immediately took the opportunity. Too bad I couldn’t find my charcoal pencil so i just used my trusty 7B. Nonetheless, it just feels great to finally draw again.
Ban and I went on a little Quiapo adventure today. Initially, it was only to have new lenses made for my new frames. Then I remembered all the disposable film cameras (those cute plastic Kodaks) from my sister’s wedding last year, rotting away in my cabinet. So, I added having them developed to my Quiapo to-do. There were a few shots left for us to play with so I took random shots around the area and some turned out fine. :)
P.S. Last photo on the photo set: stupid finger!
Making an impromptu shoot with a baby girl work is easy when she has a LOT of cute toys, an adorable wardrobe and a pretty tiara to top it all off.
Backpacking in Coron with my 59-year-old lakwatsa-loving mom, 60D and my sister’s trusty TX10.
Yara’s finally here! Been on yaya mode since the day she was born (August 16) and I’m not complaining. How could you even say no to that face?
My sister at 33 weeks. Can’t wait to see Baby Yara!

Deep conversations in awkward locations
All shots were taken from my sister’s Sony TX-10. Ban and I left our babies (his Nikon & my Canon kind of babies) home where they are safe from all the island hopping activities in our 3-day, 2-night stay in Caramoan. The place is sublime. I am thankful we got to visit this place in its unspoilt state and I can only hope the local government takes action to preserve its beauty.
