Prenatal Photo Session – Alice Holding A Flower

We have a saying that a baby is a blessing, and I guess it’s true, this new life brings joy to the couple, the family and the people surrounding it. It’s always a joy to capture this moment that is truly a miracle. I’m not a sentimental person but bearing a child is the most wonderful thing in the world. I’m just glad to have shot this lovely couple and their soon-to-be child that happens to be my Godson. I apologize for the late posting. Hope you enjoy the photos. Continue reading

Framed Memories – Past and Present

Kirsten Jae on a hammock at my Parent’s house – Balungao Calumpit

Whenever I go back to my hometown I always forget to take a single photo of where I grew up. I always finish a photo project or a video project but regretfully forget to snap a photo of the greatest thing in my childhood. This place always gives me a sense of solace. I don’t feel rushed and stressed out when I’m there. I can definitely kick back relax and enjoy the view or the moment. Maybe I can only say it because I’m on vacation but I really feel that there’s something more to it than a feeling of nostalgia. Now that I’m a Dad myself I’m glad to have introduce to my daughter Kirsten Jae the place where I played, got dirty, broke a bone, bitten by a dog, climbed, fell and got scolded. Continue reading

Madonna and Child: Jenny and Kae

Madonna & Child - Mama Jenny and Kristen Jae

Madonna & Child – Mama Jenny and Kristen Jae

 

Another rainy Sunday evening and we’re about to hit the sack. Jenny and Kae were playing “Monkey Ball” on Kae’s tablet and they’re having so much fun I realized why not freeze the moment. Before Kae realizes what’s going on (’cause she really hates the camera) I quickly grab my cam and shoot away. Our room light is not as bright so I crank up my ISO to 2000, shoot with an aperture of F2.8. Even though I stop down at F2.8 from the widest F1.4,  it’s still considered wide. I guess F4 would be the ideal aperture for this kind of shot.  I can see some softness on the shot making  Jenny’s eyelashes the sharpest part of the photo and Kae’s face a bit soft. Oh and the shutter speed is 1/50 of a second. I took probably 6 shots but this one says it all plus converting it to black and white made it a Kodak Moment in this case a Nikon Moment.

Kirsten Jae – Natural Backlight

Kirsten Jae – Playing with her ears

My daughter Kirsten Jae is one of the hardest subject I’ve ever shot. She is never still like the Energizer Bunny. I think she hates the camera. Whenever she was told to look at the camera, she do faces or shake her head to purposely blur my shots as if she knows that my shutter speed is low and my aperture wide-open. Seems like she is mocking me that I would never get her pretty picture. So I waited hang around with her while the camera is on my side, waiting for the right moment to strike like a lion stalking a gazette – That is a good metaphor. The glow coming from a morning sunlight gave it a fresh innocent looking effect. Hope you like the photos. Cheers!

Ang Batang Yagit (The Vagabond Child) pt.1

This is one of my personal project that I’m itching to do for a long time. I had a lot of  fun doing this themed photo shoot and Kirsten Jae (Baby Kae) is so cute with her ragged outfit. She never gave any problem while shooting, she just roam around like a “Vagabond Child”, very innocent and full of life. It’s really heartbreaking to see a child stripped off all the convenience in life and force to beg on the streets. Continue reading
