The Filarts welcome Astrid

Patty Laurel babyThere is a new addition to the Filart family, and her name is Astrid Nicola. This precious little angel is daughter to Patrick Filart and Patty Laurel-Filart and, is baby sister to a very energetic kuya Theo!

Patty chose to have a home session instead of a fresh 48 session in the hospital because she needed to recover from her C-section. It all came to place, 18 days after Astrid was born. I don’t think it could be any more perfect. All these warm moments captured in the comfort of their own home. No stress, no fuss — okay, maybe kuya Theo was overly hyper for the most part — but that just gave us more positive vibes during the shoot!

What a blessing it is to be witness to the ever growing love of a family, a home.

Maternity: The Beauty Of Change


Pregnancy is such a special and intimate time in a woman’s life. And though they may seem fragile, it is quite the contrary. All the mayhem of hormones and pains can only be persevered by the strength in these beautiful women.

It’s during this time that every ounce of support from the people around them means a ton. And what better way to experience pregnancy than with the full support of your sister, who is also pregnant! Mini is just 3 months behind Ma-ann. And I brought her in, just to capture this rare occurrence.

I was so blessed and happy to have done this intimate maternity session. It was just Ma-ann, her ever supportive husband Mikko and I for the most part. We worked together to achieve a clean, classy and fresh look, focusing on the beautiful changes happening to her right now.

I believe that a woman’s body is something to be proud of. It is beautiful, in all its forms, most especially when it brings new life into the world.

Alesso’s First Moments

01a Regine Van Alesso Leano Fresh48

Viktor Alesso is finally here! Everyone was eagerly awaiting Regine & Van’s first baby boy to be born. We were just too happy for the opportunity to shoot these two lovely people again, this time in a Fresh 48 session for baby Alesso. They truly are a beautiful family, whose love just fills the room.

The first 48 hours with your new baby will go by faster than you can imagine and everything will be a blur. A Fresh 48 session is a great way to remember the first moments of your kids. Not only will you have photos of this fleeting moment when your baby is the tiniest he’ll ever be, but it captures such genuine emotions from both parents too: mom, finally able to see this little human living inside her for 9 months, and dad, finally able to hold this gift from their love.
