KauaiAugust 2013

Embracing fall by remembering summer.

Post-grad life: Ended the summer by returning to the islands back in August, this time spending time in Kauai. It’s hard to put into words what this island means to me, but all I can say is that I’m going to try my best to make sure my returns aren’t years apart.

*Edit: I also forgot to add that two days after I arrived, my 7D died on me in the middle of a shoot, leaving me with my Nikon N4004s & my phone (which explains some of the low-quality images in this post). Haven’t developed the rolls of film yet (been busy) and haven’t put together the video yet (which will be posted on my other blog) so there may be a Pt. 2 coming soon.

Because even the moments of doubt are just signals of transition. Signals of a looming next phase of reinvention and rebirth to another level of self-understanding. They’re nothing to judge. They’re nothing to fear. They’re us.

Sutro Baths - May 2013

San Francisco, Calif.

One of my favorite places on my side of the city to clear my mind, especially at sunset. Also one of my favorite places in the city, in general. Lucky to have been born & raised in The Bay. It’s so hard to imagine leaving such a place, but opportunities beyond here await.

What can I say, I’m a fangirl.

It’s always strange finding your photos floating around tumblr.
In 2011, when Can’t Hold Us was released, I bumped that song all the way to San Bernardino and saw him perform it live at RTB. Crazy how so much has changed in such a short amount of time.

Miianne Fashion Diary - February 2013

Top photo: Light painting featuring fashion blogger Maryann Galeos of Miianne Fashion Diary wearing Prabal Gurung for Target.

Bottom photo: Still life light painting of a fashion blogger’s “tools”—shoes & accessories.

Light painting is definitely a long process and requires an assistant or two, but it is probably one of my favorite lighting techniques.

Title of this post was inspired by the inspiration behind Prabal Gurung for Target, which was love and the “enchanted forest” feel of our set…which was my living room.

First post for 2013: ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE



This probably isn’t going to help stop the increase in hipster followers I’ve been getting lately but this was all I could think of posting for the time being.
2013 will be filled with many things but it’s mostly going to be the year I travel for work. It’s not as glamorous as most envision. In fact, I envision many months of struggle and being broke. The only way I’ll be able to get through it all is if I make an adventure out of it. I’m really looking forward to the year ahead, but for now, I’m just working on becoming a better me and creating better days.

The 10th Annual Parol Lantern Festival, a huge Filipino American community Christmas event, took place at Jessie Square in San Francisco on Dec. 8.






Paróls are one of my favorite things about the holidays. There’s something about seeing them hanging in the windows or outside front doors of houses in different cities that reminds me of how connected the Filipino diaspora really is. We may be settled all around the world, but these beacons of light connect us to home.
