Tulip Fields Portrait https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2017/5/tulip-fields We got lucky to have a nice weather when we went out to Skagit Valley for this session.  And the tulips were still in bloom, the fact that, this was in May.   The festival usually runs the month of April. Anyway, I so loved the dress that she's wearing, I bought this from Cozumel, Mexico and the paired necklace was just   wonderful! We forgot to bring the right pair of shoes for the dress, that explains an image where she was bare feet. This was her memorable session because it was her first time to see the tulip fields.

Her passion as a hip hop dancer brought her and her team to many competitions and she is an awesome leader for her team. I am so proud of you Mao and  best of luck!

 I saw an opportunity for a photo shoot location,  when I noticed a friend's  posting on facebook of her beautiful backyard with the  ornamental tree. To my  delight, when she said yes, a couple days later I had these images of Shauna.  Thanks Jingle and Dan! And to  Shauna good luck for the college life. 

                             The ring light made those catchlights of her eyes.

Teen Glamour https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2015/3/teenglamour This beautiful girl is a Senior in high school. She loves sports and had been playing soccer when she was young.  I'm glad she came in for this session. We had a great time.

She's wearing the tulle skirt I made and I love the top she brought that was just perfect for this outfit.  The background is a canvass paint drop cloth I painted. I was thinking more towards light vintage but I picked the wrong color for the second paint.  It's my first time to this kind of project and I'm in love with the final image!

I can imagine how anxious and excited these two as they are expecting their first bundle of joy tomorrow. Interestingly, little peanut didn't want mommy & daddy to know his/her gender.  I'm excited for them! 

I think that the tulle skirt I made for her was just perfect for this shoot. And oh by the way, it was fun making the headpiece too.

Raphne & Tina's Wedding https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2015/1/raphne-tinas-wedding

It's about time to put up these photos I took of my sister's wedding last year.  They've been married for almost 10 years (civil wedding) and a church wedding was always in their mind. Because of the kind of work they both have (working abroad in two different countries) it was hard to plan and be at the same time in the Philippines.  So, it was really nice  after seven years of being apart, both of their schedule to come back to the Philippines worked out last summer. And so this dream wedding happened.

Despite,  of the little time for the preparation everything went well.  Friends, mostly with families & relatives gathered joyously to this occasion.

 Couldn't be more excited for this session. We've been talking back & forth for the concept style of the shoot from what to wear to the make - up and hairstyle. It's impressive that she pulled it off because she did all that by herself.  Plus, we got an amazing location and a fine day, knowing how predictable the weather was like here. I love what I do, that's for sure:)

18th Debut https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2014/2/18th-debut

The day has come for this big celebration, Megan turns 18! It's a new chapter in her life and I am extremely pleased that I get to photographed this event.

Just a little bit about Debut. It is a Filipino custom in celebrating 18th birthday, throwing a large extravagant party complete with entourage. The entourage consists of the debutante with her escort, court, 18 multiple sets of males & females chosen by the debutante. She will be presented with  eighteen single roses from the guys and they dance until all the roses are presented to her, they call it the "18 Roses Dance".  On the other hand, the females will light the eighteen candles and will usually give a short heartwarming message to the debutante. In her case, she had chosen eighteen sets of couples to light the candles.  One of the highlights of the event is the father & daughter dance. And the party is concluded with eating & dancing!


The special night was made possible because of the loving support of her mom & dad, relatives & friends. To the Sampang, thank you - I had so much fun photographing her special day.

2014 First day of Skiing https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2014/1/2014-first-day-of-skiing The mountains are calling! Skiing is a pure bliss for me. It's not in my wildest dream that I would be able to ski  as I came from a tropical country. I love that we can do this as a family and the fact that it's just an hour drive is such an awesome deal! Plus the company of our wonderful friends (skiing buddies), skiing trip couldn't be better.  This day was a blue bird day, although the snow wasn't in good condition for skiing but we still have fun.  Looking forward for more snow and more skiing trips.

Taku Lodge https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2013/8/cruise-to-alaska  

My family and I just got back from the cruise this morning, a seven day voyage to Alaska and a few days trip to Denali National Park.  There were nine of us who boarded the Island Princess ship on the 22nd of July, this was our first time but not for my brother in law & his family, as well as his parents in laws. It was quite a nice cruise not to mention a lot of eating :).

This is Juneau, the capital of Alaska which was the second port that the ship had docked. I'd like to talk about it first because I think I had the coolest experienced here encountering the wild bears while having the most delicious king salmon dinner. Yes, as I will borrow Zachary's phrase, the BEST that I ever had!

We flew for a short floatplane (turbine powered) ride going to the wilderness of Taku Lodge. It flew over the river with majestic views of the glacier, mountains, waterfall & forest.

We had our dinner inside the lodge & on the right side of this building is where someone was cooking the salmon in an open fire. The aroma of the salmon was supposed to attract the bears, they'll come out and eat the left overs.  Here, Mike & Carter took a closer look of the glacier while waiting for our dinner.

Perhaps, Juhree & Mike were trying to get his recipe :).

So she came out, luckily everybody were inside just started enjoying the meal. I had to come out, I was like about 15-20 feet away from Stowie & you can't go any closer. One guy, who works there were watching people who were inching to get closer & then he would tell you to step back.

Zachary was so brave and is loving the sight of the bear.  How awesome!

Apparently, after the guy shoo Stowie, a baby bear came out. They had to keep her away from the grill because the cook started making a fire and will cook more salmon for the next group of tours. So she ran into the bushes and climbed the tree.

Many times she attempted to get down but the guy with the big stick, keep her away from coming down using his stick. I wonder how much longer she stayed there for it was time for us to leave.

Awww, so cute! For me, it was a truly amazing experienced spent with loved ones!

Beauty Shot https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2013/6/beautyshot                           

I was fascinated with this fabric when I first glimpse it at the fabric store. My thoughts were up in the air of what I could possibly do to this piece. Of course, I was thinking of someone wearing it  for a beauty shot. My not so creative mind was working hard for ideas. :)  Make a dress or a gown? So many ideas for sewing but I did not want to mess with it, because it was too beautiful to even start cutting. So, I  ended up wrapping it around my models and I think it works perfect just like that. Best of all, they love it too!

Aloha Trip https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2013/4/hawaii-trip  

Last week, we flew to Hawaii instead of spring skiing in Whistler.  We enjoyed our trip very much and spent most of the time at the beach and of course eating & shave ice.  One of Mike & Dane's favorite, as well as mine was when the two of them were swimming with the green sea turtle at Laniakea beach at the North Shore, Oahu (panorama view)  http://www.to-hawaii.com/oahu/beaches/p55.html . While they were swimming with the turtle, there was another one approximately 30 years old & 225 lbs.  resting on the shore for a couple hours. It would have been cool to watch Missy crawling back to the sea but it was time for us to move to the next destination. I'm pretty sure she was enjoying the sun and all the attention she got from the tourists watching her.

One day, we stopped at Waimea beach park. To our surprise we were greeted with massive waves when we walked out a few feet away from the shore and the water was up to the neck!  I thought it was scary because once the wave hit me, I was brought  to the shore quickly and sucked back to the sea.  The two had a blast though!  These photos were taken from an underwater camera.
The shrimp truck is a must when you are heading up to the North Shore. The shrimps were big, about 10 to 12 pcs and serve with two scoops of rice, side sauce, lemon and slices of pineapple.  I love the butter garlic shrimp, was sooo good (makes me hungry right now)!

This store is popular for the best shave ice (with Dane's approval) and have tons of tropical fruit  flavors.  It is located in the charming town of Haleiwa, maybe an hour from Waikiki. And just miles away from the shrimp truck too.  It was worth the drive afterall.             

When you see restaurant that's crowded, that's for sure a good thing.  So, we tried this Japanese place and it  did satisfy our hunger after two hours of waiting at the doctor's office.  Yes, we were at the urgent care clinic because Dane stepped on a sea urchin while taking the surf lesson but the doctor didn't do anything. I thought at first he was joking, but really the spikes will just break by itself & Dane's fine. Mahalo!

I would like to add, it cost $60 to license a song. So, having these collections of songs, it's awesome!

Tulips https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2013/2/a-way-of-life                                           For me, there is no other sophisticated flower other than tulips.
 At this early, I see tulips every grocery store I've been to and I particularly learned from talking to this lady (insert photo) that their tulips came from indoor garden in Bellingham (90 miles north of Seattle). Here, she was busy arranging and wrapping tulips ready for sale at the busy Pike Place market, one of Seattle's most popular tourist attractions. http://pikeplacemarket.org/
                                                                                   The point of sale.

Ski City https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2013/1/ski-city I just love the atmosphere of  Whistler, I was kind of sick while we were there but that didn't stop me from skiing. It's a whole differe world up there! The first photo shown is the front of the Whistler gondola ride, about a few feet steps to the left is the Blackcomb gondola. Can you name the flags? The Philippines is missing though :)

I was fascinated watching the people, early in the morning,  lining up to ride the gondola  through the comfort of these windows. I mean, 7'o clock it's filling up pretty quickly.  Literally, Powders Edge (condo) is just a few steps away to Whistler and Blackcomb gondola, which was awesome!   The unit was pretty decent, it was interesting that there's a hot tub  inside.

This was taken early  in the afternoon, so there's not much crowd or a long queue of skiers and snowboarders to ride the gondola. The crowd at this time was up there, on the mountain! I was down here because I'm all done, the third day of skiing, my legs just gave up.

Here's more view of the life in the Village! It was a great trip spending time with family and with great nephews and awesome brother & sister in law.

The Olympic Rings https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2013/1/the-olympic-ring The rings can be found at the top of Whistler near Roundhouse Lodge at 6,069 ft above sea level.  Taking the gondola from Whistler Village will take you to the top and it's more or less 30 minutes ride with spectacular view.  You can't just go there though and not have  your photos taken in front of the rings, so make sure the camera is ready:).  In fact, there were official photographers up there too, if you want it professionally done http://www.coastphoto.com/portraits.

I was waiting for these skiers to ski down or get out of my way and shot the rings from this angle but it took them forever. It's so crowded that every time I change position their got to be someone in the way. So, I just decided to include them &  I liked the way it turned out. This is the peak chair that will take you to the top of the world and see inuksuk http://www.inukshukgallery.com/inukshuk.html.

                                                           Just for the fun of it, here's more rings!

Bothell Landing https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2012/12/bothell-landing The Bothell Landing is home to many historical buildings. Bothell is located northeast of the city of Seattle and on the eastside of Lake Washington.  I love how these buildings resulted in a  dramatic background for some of the photos below.

This particular cabin was the house of Andrew and Augusta Beckstrom with their 16 children. Their third child, John was born in this cabin and is the first  recorded birth in Bothell.

The schoolhouse was built in 1885 but the opening was delayed until March 1886 due to weather conditions. It's typically a one room school for grades one to eight.

~Sandy Hook~ https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2012/12/sandy-hook I am at lost for words upon hearing this morning's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown Connecticut.  I would never understand how anyone could do such an evil act.  My fervent prayer and thoughts are with the  kids, families, teachers, survivors and the Newtown community. May all souls rest in peace!

Powder Day https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2012/12/powder-day Our first day of skiing for this season was an eventful. Usually, when we get to the ski area http://www.stevenspass.com/ at least around 9:00 or 9:30 we would be already on the chair lift.  But Saturday was different,  we (family and friends)  had been waiting for extra long hours for the lift to open. And we (actually Mike) even picked the shortest queue.  There was so much snow!!!! So, there were about four chair lifts, Daisy (for beginners), Hogsback, Skyline and Brooks (was not open at all) not counting four other lifts at the backside. The thought of changing lift at this point was considered, to our left is Skyline for which we can't even see the end of the line.

Standing in line, I thought we were waiting for this guy until he was done shoveling. But that's not the case, they were doing avalanche control http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/maintenance/avalanche. He was at paced at the beginning,  but like halfway through he slowed down, that must be a workout.   As far as I can remember, since I started skiing in 2003 at this early season with so much snow was unusual.

Finally, the long extra wait was over and here's Mike digging his skis with a waist deep powder snow!

For snowboarders like Dane, powder day was awesome! For me, it was challenging and at the same time it was so much fun! I never knew I would love snow or skiing that much coming from a tropical place (Dumaguete City) http://dumaguetecity.gov.ph/ with no traffic lights at all!

Helicopter Ride https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2012/11/helicopter-ride Never in a million years I would have thought I'll be riding a helicopter. We did that, just today at the http://www.seattlehelitours.com/  and the weather could've never been nicer.  I was nervous, the thought of flying this little thing. It was actually fun!!!

How's this for a close up view of the newly painted Space Needle. This was the most exciting part I was looking forward to, a shot from a helicopter's perspective! 

And we flew over the great wheel at the Seattle's waterfront.

This is the freeway I-5.  Oh, I think we were turning around this time and went back South. I dunno I was enjoying the view from up above! It was a pretty awesome experience! Mike, Dane & I enjoyed it very much and would do it again (note to self, keep an eye for groupon).

1890 Wine Jugs https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2012/11/1890-wine-jugs


So, Mike got these jugs from ebay which was from his great-great grandfather.  I find it really amazing to have these antique stoneware artifacts in our hands.

Jazmine https://www.abednegoimages.com/blog/2012/11/jazmine I love the fence, it makes a nice framing. Jazmine's full of energy, she just wanted to keep running around the small hills.  I let her and prepared my camera for the good moments.  With good lighting and patient, the photos came out natural.


It's a privilege to work with this smart little girl, who once in a while would tell me how to angle her shot.  It was a fun afternoon!

Thanks to Weberline Couture  http://www.weberline.com for the pink gloves that perfectly matched the gown I bought for a knock off deal.

Turned out to be nice today and a little bit chilly. We drove to a nearby place for fall photoshoot. Here's my sister and my mother. I'm grateful she came over,  she can't do anything now as I drag her around  for photoshoot.
