“A friend is someone whole reaches for your hand, but touches your heart.”
I have been inspired to try back my love for photography as soon as I got my Cherry mobile Flare phone. Together with my childhood friends, we visited a resort in Bulacan. The kids had so much fun especially Roey who got to play again with Miggy. Miggy is just almost a year older than her and the two get along pretty well. I hope that their friendship, just like their Moms’ last a lifetime.
These are new sets I made out of my toddler’s shots.
See how she’s becoming a little vain? These photos are of hers, taken by her. I often tell her not to do these kind of shots since the flash might cause eye issues. After the many reminders, I found her exploring the camera’s features and has learned to disable flash. Whoooah! So much for a 2 year old kid!
She’s made new shots which are near perfect. Something that makes me proud and will definitely post soon.
Getting better yet?
These were taken one morning as I was preparing my elder daughter for school.
Notice that Roey took photos while she’s lying in the bed. We unintentionally woke her up because of the noise we made that morning. To my surprise, Roey’s first words that morning – “Where is?” – And she was referring to the digital camera which resulted to these photos. That’s her in White crocheted beanie.
My toddler showed her love for the camera at an early stage, and I like it! She’s just like me then. I have decided to delete some of her shots maybe but saved the ones that I liked and started documenting them. I would love to see how her talent develops. Here’s what I have saved so far:
That’s the photographer in the middle. My toddler Roey.
I will post few more sets in the future so you can also check out improvements.
A Rottweiler, Amber is just almost a year old yet he’s so big.
It’s her bath time.
These first photos were taken with my assistance of course but the last one is all hers. I am referring to my almost 2yo daughter who has liked gadgets at her young age. She’s using a portable DVD player, a GameBoy, an Apple ipod and the latest which I think is what she liked most of all is our digital camera. She kept watching her own video in it for how she learned to turn it ON, I am not sure but most probably by observing. She also knows how to go back and forth to the view and shooting mode. Clever little girl she is! She in fact woke up from her afternoon nap one time and suddenly asked: “Where is?” I later on found out that she’s referring to the camera. I will definitely have a separate album of her shots for I have found a lot of them to be funny. =)
“Some beach, somewhere. There’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair.
Palm trees are growin’ and a warm breeze a blowing.
I picture mys
elf right there, on some beach, somewhere.”

This was taken at a beach resort in Batangas, Philippines. I missed joining the family reunion/summer getaway but will make it a point to be present next year. Photo credits to Jennilyn.
