Ahead of her highly anticipated full-length album to be released next year, Filipina singer-songwriter Barbie Almalbis has officially dropped a heartfelt tribute to her grandaunt Nita Hontiveros-Lichauco, or Tata, as she is fondly referred to. Entitled “ An AsPin’s Song ,” the track assumes the role of a beloved indigenous mixed-breed dog in the Philippines, which has nothing but utmost love and appreciation for the late animal rights supporter and activist.

Kiddie Photoshoot: Elanna Beatriz

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.
