Promising newcomer dia maté dials down the R&B melodrama for a luscious summertime tune that is built around laid-back melodies, indie-pop influences, and tropical-sounding rhythms. Written by mate herself and produced by IV of Spades’ Blaster Silonga, “Dream” explores the hesitation of commitment and moving forward despite falling in love with someone. According to the 19-year-old artist, the song was inspired by how people sometimes close themselves off subconsciously to protect their heart from the trauma induced by past relationships. “That’s what ultimately holds us back: the fear of being let down again,” the young singer-songwriter says. “ Dream essentially describes wanting to wake up from the past, to pretend it was only a dream.” Upbeat melancholia dia maté originally penned and produced the demo for “Dream” on guitar, but the rising pop/R&B star eventually wanted to revamp the track with a more upbeat and energetic vibe to complement the melancholic appeal of

Kiddie Photoshoot: Elanna Beatriz

It's Elanna's birthday tomorrow. Eireka and Craig's youngest. But before she turned 1, I was given the privilege to have a photo session with her. Thanks to her momma for letting me do so. 

When it comes to photo editing, I hate too much "drama". As much as possible I edit less. I prefer doing minimal changes to a photo. Hence, you can see most of the pictures here were edited just to enhance the brightness/contrast and not exaggerating the photo effects. 




When the subject is kind of blurry or out of focus, I made use of the SEPIA/B&W tones. To hide the blur and to see the beauty of the photo in a classic way.



I love taking candid shots. It's the most precious for me, and to think that kids, specially toddlers are the hardest subject to shoot, because they're too mobile.















I really had fun shooting this little tot, though I wasn't feeling well that day. Again, thanks to the Merigillano couple for trusting my talent.
