No one cared about the rain today. Not when you are as in love as Sally and Mark. <3

The beginning…

April 20th, 2014 – (week 4)

It’s only been 2 days since we found out that I am pregos from the pregnancy test, Good Friday of 2014. Since it’s the long weekend I haven’t had a chance to go to the doctors for the actual confirmation yet, but in my heart I knew that I am pregnant already. :) I think it’s something that you just know… Or feel?

It’s pretty funny since just the morning of Good Friday, inside the car on our way to a friends home, I was telling Kevin that I smell something greasy. Kevin looked at me funny and said, “You know pregnant women have a more sensitive sense of smell…..” I didn’t think much at the time, but later on when we got home, I did the test and of course, it was confirmed.

From the initial shock, to right now where it’s hard to put into word exactly how I feel. It’s still quite unbelievable that I have a baby growing inside my tummy?!?! Sometimes I just walk in front of the mirror and lift up my shirt to see if my tummy got any bigger. Hahhaha so silly… it’s just the big dinner that I had. :p There’s no way my tummy would show already when it’s still less than a month in :p

Anyways, since you can’t announce until at least 3 months, I can’t post this until much much later. Maybe I’ll just keep this as a draft and keep updating it until when we can finally announce the good news. :)

It is so hard to keep it a secret from everyone. So far, the only people that we’ve told are immediate families. We took a few videos of their reactions hahahah maybe I’ll share it on the blog later. :) But for everyone else, we want to keep it hush hush until we pass the 3 month mark. This is extremely hard since I NEVER pass on an opportunity to drink… boo… and people have their hawk eyes on me at all times because they know that we are trying to conceive.

Bestie’s birthday today! Sooooo want to tell her about the pregnancy…… Ahhhhhhh I never keep secrets from her hahaha this is so harddddd!!!

So for the past few days, I’ve been experiencing a lot of pregnancy brains, you know, forgetting things here and there. Which is normal to pregnant women. The only thing is, Kevin seems to be suffering from it more than I am (wtf?) lol~ Just today, as he was leaving for an engagement shoot,  we kissed good bye and he opened the door….. and came right back in. Yup, dear husband just realized that he forgot to wear shoes. hahhahahahah :) he makes me laugh.

It’s getting very very hard to keep this a secret from everyone else. Especially since I do not drink (alcohol) anymore. In order to avoid being questioned at a house warming party, we got Kevin’s brother (the first person we told) to help us out by grabbing a “beer” for me. When he went to grab the beer, it was actually an empty bottle of beer that he filled up with water. Muahahhah worked like a charm. All suspicions were erased once they saw me drinking.

Is it pregnancy hormones? For the past week I have gotten upset at Kevin 3 times already. Makes me wonder if I am usually like this, or is this pregnancy hormone really making me more impatient? The first time was when he asked me to help him with laundry, second time was when we were trying to take photos of my belly, and third being that Kevin complained that I don’t make enough money :(

Argh still mad right now. I’ll just blame it on the hormones.

So what exactly are “vivid” dreams that pregnant women claim to have? All I have been having are nightmares. Well, not really scary nightmares, but more annoying than anything else. Ahhhh okay fine sometimes they were really scary and I wake up scared :( One night I was having a night mare and there was this loud noise that scared the crap out of me and woke me up. Kevin noticed and started calming me down. It wasn’t until the next morning when I realized what that “loud noise” actually was…. :o

First prenatal appointment. :) Got to see baby today.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been having bad dreams. I think I was just really worried that I won’t be able to see baby from the ultrasound.

Our tech did not allow us to take pictures of the ultrasound so we had to pay for a print. But here it is!

It’s only a side profile of the head. Can you see the little nose and pouting lips? lol

During the ultrasound, we saw the heart beat (160 bpm) and saw baby’s little foot and waving arms.

People say that the moment you see baby for the first time you will usually tear up from happiness. Ummm yeah I didn’t. I just kept on giggling because baby was waving his/her arms hahahha

The tech had to tell me to stop giggling or he’s not going to show me the monitor anymore :(

PB (pregnancy brain) strikes again!

I parked my car, brought everything up to our 8th floor apartment, got inside, and realized that I forgot my phone in the car. So I left everything at home, took the keys, went back downstairs to my car, walk up to my car, and realized that I forgot to bring my car keys. So I had to go back up again, and back down again, just because I forgot my phone.

Well that’s enough exercise for today. Sigh…

Winner Shot: Lily and Dana

It’s always really cute when couples come to me and tell me they are not photogenic and they are worried that they won’t know what to do in front of the camera. I always just tell them to be themselves and pretend that they are on a date and don’t even bother looking at the camera. And just when they are most relaxed, I tell them to look at me………… and BAM!

Winner shot from today. They were so worried at the beginning, but look at the result! I’m sure you will all agree with me that Lily and Dana have no trouble looking great in front of my camera. <3

Winner shot: Sally and Mark

First, they were friends, then, they became lovers. Not only were they friends, they were family friends! Their families knew each other but never in their wildest dreams that the son from one family the daughter from another would start dating each other. Needless to say, they were ecstatic :)

Here are the winner shots from today’s session. Enjoy~ <3

Winner shot: Sophie and Pat

After much convincing and negotiating, I was finally given the okay to blog just one photo from today’s engagement session. Aren’t they the cutest? If only I could share more photos with you! hahaha

If you want to see more from today’s shoot, you gotta convince the boss! :p

04.12.2014 Gloria and David

Do you believe in love at first sight? David does.

It was approx 4 years ago when David first laid his eyes on Gloria. Gloria was part of the school choir, and one day while the choir was performing, David saw her. And never took his eyes off of her since.

If that’s not love at first sight, I don’t know what is.

Gloria and David are one of the cutest couples I’ve ever photographed. And I’m not just talking about their looks (but of course that helps too). These two are so full of love that you can literally see sparks when they look at each other. Just keep scrolling down the photos and you’ll see what I mean.

Congrats again guys. Stay cute and stay madly in love, as you are truly the perfect match for each other. <3
