Thanksgiving Family Portrait in Montalvo Art Centre,Saratoga Ca

After a long mile drive of passing those huge and fancy houses in saratoga,I finally reached our shoot venue.I was so amazed the first time I saw this place. The architecture was unique and artsy.The ambience for me was kinda rustic vintage too, with so much enthusiasm I immediately made my plan on how this session would turn out. The day was so perfect,the light was awesome and its kinda chilly that day too. We started the session exactly 3 in the afternoon just enough time to prepare for thanks giving dinner. What I loved about this session was the chemistry and the jive. It was the perfect place for the coolest family. Their moment was so true that it almost didn’t stop me from clickin that shutter.

For the Love of Breakfast Project: Scrambled Egg

I had been longing that someday that I would make my own project about photography. I had always been fascinated with food photography. Earlier when I was still learning my photography my mentor always told me to shoot anything and everything, start with something that is easy to manipulate. I had always been frustrated with this kind of photography. The main issue was lighting set up and photography equipment. I mean books and some people advised that you have to have like this or buy this kind of gears. I had been trying this for years but never really into it.
Thats why Im doing this as my self project and my self motivation to pursue such challenge. I titled it “For the Love of Breakfast Project”. Why Breakfast? coz for me its the best way to start the day and I love breakfast. Once in a while im going to post images about food during breakfast, comments and constructive criticism are welcome..

Los Gatos Shoot with Andrellie

There are some places that I want to hang out always whenever I can and Los Gatos trail is one of it. This is the place where I can wander anywhere and be relax. I used to ride my bike here and promised to bring with me my camera but it didn’t happened. When Andrellie called me to have location shoot with her, the first thing that came into my mind was this place. It was weekday, we had a perfect weather and it wasn’t really that warm that day. I shoot Andrellie before and I know its gonna be fun and great to shoot her again. I had such great time with this session.
After so many weeks of not having click my camera was a torture. Last week was a blast!thanks to Andrellie for the quick notice and ops

Let Him be Little

It has been a crazy month performing our role as new parents.Loading ourselves with tons of information and tips on how to do this and how to do that was part of the process, either of them works, sometimes we are just being lucky but most of the time it was trial and error. There was excitement, exhaustions, Aha and funny moments along the way. Talking about funny moments, my son just peed hitting almost my darn face while changing his diapers. So I have a little bit of “matrix” stunts everytime it happens.

We are so happy to had accomplished at least a month of adjustments with the new process of dealing with our new child. We just landed CIAN’s first month last week and we are ready to subdue efforts for another month and years to come.We are so excited to share with you our beloved and most cherished moments this past week.

Moments with Grandpa

These are the stuff that made our life incredibly awesome and easy.

1-Although not a gadget, We personalize our son’s room with his first ever gallery wrap canvass. Why is this important?! Isn’t it great and awesome to have baby pictures hanging around our home.
2-We had been an online shoppers ever since my wife got pregnant and we stumble into this amazing website click here. And we had a chance to bought this at Nelsongifts, very simple yet very personal.
3-Changing diapers almost every hour makes him vulnerable to rash and skin dryness,We bought this amazing stuff in amazon. Its Hypoallergenic and it works.
4-Its like going to a spa. The aroma is soothing and calming for our baby. We usually apply this after baby bath.
5-This thing is amazing its called itzbeen pocket nanny!we never have to write or record everything on a piece of paper.It automatically give us information when was the last time he feed, poops etc
6-Keeping things clean and organize is what we’ve learn from having a baby.Our diaper pail save us from having a stinky trash bins inside our bedroom.This is odorless and easy to dispose.

7-As hands-on parents, We needed to attend other chores and errands.Our baby monitor keep us track while we are away from our baby’s room doing other things.
8-Sometimes its tiring and exhausting carrying him 24hours a day, this awesome thing does the job for us. It simply works like a hammock on the beach.

9-Since we committed ourselves to breastfed our son. This is the only bottle that our son can tolerate. This one mimics the breast nipple and a slow flowing bottle too(mimics let down reflex).
10-This one is a legend, you can’t mess with grandmas old tricks and still works though. This still prevents gassy evening episodes.

And We love our Ipad Ibooks and our selphy photoprinter click here(it does an amazing print for scrapbooking)

An Amazing Journey of Love and Miracle

I’ve been patiently waiting for this moment putting this together into a story.I am still sleepy and tired but looking back I still can’t believe how we made this far. My wife and I had been talking wee hours of the night thinking what will our baby will look like and how would it feels like if that day comes?Anxiety and excitement never runs out as the months keeps moving to its due date. We are so grateful that we have friends and relatives who are there to help us and guide us into this unique experience.
We are so thankful to our co workers, friends(from virginia, california, texas,new york),families(from philippines and singapore) and relatives who had been there all thru out this journey. For the kind people who hosted the baby shower and everything, it made our hearts really melt.
I believe that miracles really happen and we owe it to God the almighty. I, as a husband at the same time the future dad. It didn’t fade into my mind the fear that delivering a baby involves a lot of risk.Having no control of the situation makes me so vulnerable and powerless. That the only thing makes me and us strong is the hope and prayers that GOD is always with us.I completely surrender myself to him that he is still my father my Lord who is much stronger than everything.
I sincerely thank my wife and truthfully I am very proud of her even though she was so much in pain and scared(I ask her whats your pain level in scale of 1-10? and she said “11”) She still manage to hold on to me and trust me with all her hearts.
We know that this is just the beginning. And I know countless diapers and sleeps will still be wasted, as our friends and relatives always tell “It will all be Worth it”. And I am greatly happy to tell my boy “welcome to the world my son”
