I moved to Dubai last December, the first time I ever stepped to a foreign land. My friends say what I did is the most liberating thing I have done recently. And I think it was, too.
Leaving the Philippines had always been my plan a few months back when I was still in Boracay. I somehow did not expect the process to be that fast - I was out of the country in less than a month or so.
It's been a awhile since I did a fun shoot. Meeting Fianca in Dubai got me back to baby photography. The last one was with Pio, a few years back in the Philippines.
There is something about Fianca that inspired me to go back to photography. Capturing kids' emotions can be a bit tiring: you will have to do almost everything to make them laugh and smile. I did it without any efforts.
Little by little I'm gonna chase destiny on my own. Relying with false promises will lead you nowhere. I realized that the more I distance myself to love, the more I get to know myself better.
And so I did. Little by little I will find myself again.
This is just one of the few reasons of my getting extremely busy just before the plane took off.
Anne and Fil were my foster parents in Boracay. They started as best of friends and I witnessed how both fell for each other (sweet!). Getting Dad (Fil) to say yes on this shoot was never a hassle - I have always been his favourite kid in town and he just can't resist my annoyingly cute tantrums. I'm surely gonna miss these two. Enjoy the set!
So. The last post I had was way back September. A lot have happened and I went somewhere again because of something only God knows what it is for. I sometimes feel like I don't want to be a part of the plan any more. It would really sound way way better if you will be THE PLAN, don't you think?
This blog will be somewhat alive again (hopefully), it's just that I am still trying to put things back together and I am looking for something worth writing for. You will need some inspiration once in a while.
Join me again on my trip - from the island and beyond. A new chapter will be made this 2014 - the gulf life.
