July 14th, 2011 – As I have noted before, being a photographer has been an amazing experience for me. I am so lucky to be able to capture moments in life the we all treasure very much. A couple weekends ago, I was able to capture something historic and amazing a lot of people don’t see on a regular basis, somebody turning 100 years old. I had the great honor to capture the birthday party of Nanay Ising’s 100th Birthday. Friends and family gathered to celebrate her birthday in a grand style as they converted he Eagles Nest Club House in Cypress, Ca to an amazing birthday reception. Family of multiple generations were on hand to congratulate Nanay on her 100th birthday. It was amazing to see someone that was 100 years old be so healthy, joyous, and attentive. Not only did Nanay blow her own cake but she also gave a wonderful speech thanking the guests and even hit the dance floor! How amazing is that? 100 years old and you can still get your dance on! WOW!
I want to thank Kristine Ejercito, the grand daughter of Nanay, who had hired me to photograph this party. Without her, I don’t know if I would ever have had a chance to celebrate such a huge milestone in someones life. Happy Birthday, May you live with good health, peace of mind and all the best life has to offer!
