It was one of those birthday shoot that was quick and worthwhile. The travel to this place in Carmen Cebu was all worth it. There’s something about long drives that allows me to weed through the thoughts  I’ve secretly kept hidden somewhere. The scenery along the way was calming.

The shoot started with a quick portrait session of Dea, her friends, and family. It was a small group that exuded a lot of warmth. It made me wish that I’d have more shoots like this one. Who knows, right? The universe might send ripples down my way and make my wish come true.

I am sharing a few takes of Dea’s eighteenth intimate dinner birthday with you.
