Real Moments, a NEWBORNstory

I love how a single photo can bring a rush of memories. 

Choreography helps create a good photo, however to me, a great photo is one that portrays a real moment. In every session, I strive to capture that untainted, unedited, unmaneuvered moment that families can look back and remember that special time in their lives.

I captured so many beautiful posed shots of Baby C, but these are my favorites. To me, it brings out the reality of first time parents and having a newborn baby.

Embracing Filipino Traditions, a BAPTISMstory

Not long ago, I photographed the pregnancy and birth of this beautiful family. One year later, this baby has grown to a sweet and handsome boy.

Welcome Home, a NEWBORNstory (Ida for My Story Photography)

I am really grateful to have met Ida, a fellow photographer that shares my passion for birth photography. She has become an awesome partner with great talent. Here is a sneak peak at her most recent work for MSP.

Little Ladies, a BIRTHstory

I had so much fun during this shoot. It was great to witness such a Christ-centered joyful family. They stood by each other throughout this very special moment. They were excited together, nervous together, enjoying together... being one as a family should be. It was very encouraging to be part of it.

So much laughter and happy tears were shed, my heart was moved. I snapped silently in the background, but deep inside I held back my own happy tears.

To top it all, a smiley bright-eyes little lady was born. Maybe joy is inherited? :) Simply adorable... :)

Life is worth celebrating :)

To Infinity and Beyond!, A First Birthday

Before anything, I would like to apologize for not being able to update my blog. I have been a bit overwhelmed with all the work cut out for me, not to mention my extra-curricular work activities. If anyone is interested, I am open to hiring a part-time back-up to help me document births and edit pictures. Please contact me at +632-2115007 or

Anyway, going back... one of the many lovely things about a birth photographer is bearing witness to such lovely babies born -- but even more lovely is being able to see them grow!

I cant believe that it has been 1 whole year since my first water birth. I will forever remember that experience of how brave and strong a mother's body is and how it is completely capable of birthing a baby on its own.

Six months after, I was able to photograph baby L at his baptism...

...and now at his first birthday! My does time fly! 

He is such a loved little boy! I look up at his parents for being so hands-on. Imagine, Mommy is still purely breastfeeding (that in itself is tough, I know because I did that too), they are both working a full time job, and they choose not to have a nanny! Oh my... what heroes!

On top of all that, they are artists so they were determined to get everything perfect. And perfect it was! They thought of every single detail of the party! From the customized backdrop, the gigantic cake, the themed balloons and centerpieces, the dessert corner, giveaways, prizes, entertainment, photo corner... even the family costumes! Superheroes indeed!

His parents always remind him that I was the first to see him (what a privilege!!!)... somewhere inside, I think he remembers :)

Happy happy birthday little Baby L. I pray unlimited blessings upon you and your family. May you be healthy and overflowing in love :)

Breastfeeding... #melt

I was so moved by this picture, I just had to share it. My favorite breastfeeding picture to date. I love how this sweet tiny baby is all cuddled up looking up at her mama with such innocent and adoring eyes. It's as if she's thinking, "Yup, that amazing woman is my mommy. I am safe and secure here. There is no other place I rather be." #melt. These are the moments that make breastfeeding so beautiful.

P.S. Thank you to the mommy that allowed me to post this. :)
