Christmas Mini Session With My Dear Friend and Her Daughter.

Hi all, I have been MIA for days on my blog. I had been a busy and exhausted mom for days. School is out for Thanksgiving break, and you (parent/parents) know what that means. My boys are like “mommy, mommy, mommy all day long.” Especially my little one, he can talk all day long for sure. The only time I have a break from them is when they are napping and when they are in bed at night, hehe. But I love them to the moon and back.


Anyway, last Saturday, I had so much fun capturing my dear friend and her daughter’s Christmas mini session. You can check this session here. The location I chose was the Dilliard’s store. It was a perfect location for this session. Dilliard’s has a wide variety of lovely Christmas decorations throughout their store. It was just perfect!

Check out my photography page and let me know what you think.

Have you ever heard of the Nygard brand? I’m wearing Nygard denim pants. When it comes to pants, I have been a Nygard’s biggest fan for 4 years now. I love every Nygard leggings and pants that I have. So worth the price! You should try this brand. I highly recommend this brand.

The photographer must pose too, lol!

Don’t Tell People Your Dreams. SHOW THEM!

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I have been #MIA (missing in action) for a while due to so many things. Being a working mom is not easy. I’m sure all working moms out there can relate to this. Being a working mom, you seldom have time for yourself. Everything you do, you do it for your family and for your children (if you have any). And when you have supposedly “time for yourself,” well, you will still be doing stuff for your family. Anyway, it’s the reality of life, and I’m not complaining.

Anyway, I’m more grateful to God for everything that is happening in my life right now. It is very accurate; everything happens for a reason. So, I might be a very busy “working” mom, that’s because I have a dream. A dream not only for myself but for my children and their future, and also for everyone I love. And now, I’m back! Having my family as my inspiration, I’m so ready to face this new chapter in my life with a more positive attitude. Also, you’ll be seeing me blogging more often this time around, hahaha. I can’t wait to share you so many things that I always thought of sharing but didn’t because of doubt. See? #DOUBT kills your dream. Don’t let doubt stop you from achieving your goal. Be a go-getter!

Until next time,

Ester

MIA NICOLE

It has been years since the last time I had seen this pretty young lady. Finally, after all those years I was able to see her again. Not only did I saw her, but also had a quick photoshoot of her. Luckily, I was able to capture a few photos of her when all of a sudden the rain poured on us. Our excitement was cut short, but it’s okay there is always another time.

Her name is Mia Nicole. Isn’t that a very pretty name?

Fine Arts Photography

It’s been a while since I’ve done some outdoor Fine Art photography and I’ve really missed doing it. The thing about Fine Art photography, for me, is that when I go out I need to have a lot of uninterrupted time for walking around, scoping out the surroundings, determining the right angles and finding the right location or subject to capture. Fine Art Photography is not about what the camera sees. It’s all about what the artist sees and feel.

To be honest, when I’m in that mood; I don’t want any distractions. I don’t want to feel rushed having to move from one place to another. Unfortunately, I can’t focus on doing that when I go out with my kiddos because my attention and focus will be on them. However, I’m going to do my best to re-engage in Fine Art photography and share it with you guys. Before I go, I would like to share a few of my Fine Art photography photos below. I know you’ll like them!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

My Little Man’s 8th Birthday

Hi, how are you all? How’s your day going so far? I hope everything is good! A few days ago, my youngest son turned eight-years-old. Before his birthday, we’ve been asking him what he wants for his birthday. At first, he wants to go see Disney World. We told him we can’t afford it right now. Sometimes, we (parents) just need to be honest with our children. If we can’t do something, then we have to tell them. Aside from going to Disney, he only wanted to have a cake with candles on it. A very simple request from an eight-year-old child. Usually, little kids ask a lot of things, especially on their birthdays. I’m grateful both of my boys don’t ask for a lot. They only ask for 1 or 2 things every time.

Big brother needs icing on his face too.

Later on, we went to ChuckECheese and both of my boys had so much fun. And for little Phillip, it was the best place to have fun on his birthday. It wasn’t busy when we were there so both of them really had fun playing and running around without bumping into other kids. He and his big brother had a blast!

Fun Day at Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I hope you and your family had a great and fun weekend together. About me and my family, we were a little busy. Sean and I are trying to keep up with the demands of the boys when it comes to going somewhere to have fun.

Since school is out for the Summer, my boys are constantly wanting to go somewhere. To be honest, it’s exhausting sometimes to go out in this heat. Nonetheless, taking them somewhere to have fun really helps me and Sean (especially me). Due to the fact that at home they constantly argue with each other, and they don’t agree with everything the other wants to do. Seriously, they’re like cat and dog fighting all the time. As a full time mom, they are my full time job. To those moms out there who have little boys, I’m so curious right now. Do your little boys fight or argue a lot?

Here’s our fun-filled day at the ZOO

We were the first in line to wait for the next train ride. The boys were like “mommy, where’s the train?” They couldn’t wait any longer for the next train ride to begin.

Having fun at the SPLASH PAD

After our train ride, we didn’t walk around the zoo much longer. The reason why? The boys were so ready to cool off and splash. When it comes to having fun in the water, they will not waist any time. IT’S SPLASH TIME!

Cheniere Lake Bayou Sceneries

I love capturing portrait and family photos but I’m a nature photographer at heart. Capturing nature photos, such as bayous, is very soothing for me. I call it my stress reliever. What is your stress reliever?

A few days ago I visited two bayous in my local area and I was surprised by what I saw. Both areas are supposed to have docks. However, that day I couldn’t see the docks. The water was so high that the docks were totally underwater. We had severe thunderstorms the day prior to my visiting the different bayous. Sadly, Ruston, our neighboring city, was hit by a tornado that spawned from the same storm that hit our city. That tornado took two lives – a mother and her son. Ruston is still recovering and needs our prayers.

Anyway, it was a bright and windy afternoon. I’m glad the humidity wasn’t bad at all. I was able to stay a little longer and enjoyed my time there. Below, are just a few bayou photos I took. I’m not done working on it but I thought I would share to you.

Knit Sweater Kind Of Day

It’s Spring season, however, it doesn’t feel like it. It’s been raining for days and it’s really nasty outside. Even my furry baby (my dog) doesn’t wanna go out. So, for days I’m back to wearing sweaters. Just the lighter ones, not those thick sweaters. This knit sweater I am wearing below is just perfect!

I don’t know why, but I get to feeling cold too quick, especially in this kind of weather. I’m from a tropical country (Philippines) and I love to feel cozy all the time. Who doesn’t want to feel cozy anyway? Right? Spring is not my favorite season at all. When it’s not raining during Spring, I will be so miserable because of my allergies, and I can’t stay outside longer because of the pollen. Thankfully, the rain helps reduce my allergies to pollen. On the other hand, when it’s raining, I can’t wear t-shirts because I always feel cold too quick. Hmm, what should I do? Can anybody relate to this?

About this sweater? I got this from Belk like a year ago. I love this sweater so much. Honestly, this is my most favorite and comfortable knit sweater ever! Also, I only paid under $10.00 for this including tax.
