Kids of Hope

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Use your personal power

“You are innately designed to use your personal power. When you don’t, you experience a sense of helplessness, paralysis, and depression-which is your clue that something is not working as it could. You, like all of us, deserve everything that is wonderful and exciting in life. And those feelings emerge only when you get in touch with your powerful self.” ~ Susan Jeffers Karina was one of Davao’s popular models a few years back before she successfully ventured into greener pastures to pursue a modeling career in Manila.  This was one of my early shoots with her back then.  What else can I say, she got in touch with her powerful self. 🙂 View more of my portrait shoot with Karina

Two faces of India

“There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds… I had been seeing the world in black & white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.” ~Keith Bellows, National Geographic Society I’ve never visited India before.  Yet.  It’s in my list of travel destinations, though.  When a group of students from India came to my city to study medicine here a few years ago, I had this wonderful opportunity of beautiful faces wanting to do portraits with me.
