I couldn’t let the month of June end without a sneak-peek of my session with Beige and Bloo. They’re just too cute!
Beige and Bloo are lovely doll-faced Persians. Because their long, luxurious coats need daily grooming, these cats only stay indoors. But since it was a bit overcast that day, I wasn’t very confident about the amount of natural light I could get inside the house. It was a good thing that Beige and Bloo’s beautiful human mommy, Cristina Ponce-Enrile (who remained behind-the-scenes in this set), was gracious and kind enough to let us take her furry babies out to the lanai for a little afternoon sunlight . We just had to make sure they didn’t touch the damp ground.
The young girl in these photos is Cristina’s charming 12-year-old granddaughter, Cristiana. Cristiana loves pets too! You’ll see some of her pets in future posts, but for now…
Meet adorable Beige!
So funny, furry and cute!!!
Persian cats are “purrr-fect” companions. They are super sweet and devoted to their humans. They are gentle and laid-back, they crave affection, and they love to be stroked and fussed over.
Meet gorgeous Bloo!
I love Bloo’s big, amazing eyes.
Persian cats are very smart, but they’re just not as curious and energetic as other breeds.
Quiet, gentle and easy-going, these cats get along well with people who are the same way towards them.
I must thank the Ponce-Enrile family for my wonderful session with Beige and Bloo… my first Persian cat session ever! Love!

Rain, rain, go away! Come again another day! Little Edward wants to play!

Here’s one from the archives! (Now that’s just a better way of saying, “I’m posting this old photo only coz I haven’t posted anything new in quite awhile!” Hahaha! Saaad!) I stumbled upon this photo as I was cleaning out my laptop. It was saved as “Elena.jpg”.
I feel like these photos evoke a certain sense of warmth and comfort. Quite perfect I think, since these past days have been so damp and dreary with the rain and all. How fitting that the name Elena means “sun ray” or “shining light”. Aww…
It’s been an extremely busy and physically (and emotionally) draining past month for me… uhh… hence this poor, neglected blog! I’ve been preoccupied with end-of-summer “soccer mom” and “back-to-school mommy” duties, ministry work, house-sitting chores for my Mom while she was on a much-deserved two-week vacation abroad, small group meetings we host at our home every week, a couple of long but fun whole-day photo shoots, hours and hours of post-production work, an irritating cough, a bad cold, and, the annoyingly inevitable symptoms of what I think could be carpal tunnel syndrome! (Nooooooo!)
My better half, Cisco, has also been preoccupied with quite a lot this past month with changes at work and all the pressures (and emotions) that come with those changes. It’s been tough. It has. And yet he has managed to be super supportive of me all throughout. He’s been my “human tripod”, as one client put it; well, also because at one shoot, he really literally had to be one! Hahaha! I hope that to him, I too have been that person to lean on in order to get a steady, balanced, clear and focused view of things. (Whatcha think, Cis?)
Seriously though, I am indeed blessed. We both are. In the years we’ve been married, and even more in this past year, we’ve learned how to be more intentional in facing life’s challenges together, hand in hand in Hand.
My son Franco is back in school which hopefully means I have a few more hours each day to concentrate on work. Here’s hoping I get to update this blog again before the month ends! Till then, I wish you warm and comfy feelings and a bright week ahead! See ya!
