Family Portraits

The only time MY side of the family is ever complete, is when we go back home to the Philippines!

And so of course, we schedule family portraits around this time, and our last trip was no different.

Here are some of my favorites...

Overlooking the land below

Gorgeous mountain views

Lush greenery
We decided outdoor setting would be the best since we were in the beautiful mountain city of Tagaytay, Philippineswe took advantage of the gorgeous views!

The Original Baricuatro Family 

Our family

My Brothers family

My Sisters family
With the grandkids

And of course what's a pictorial without solo shots of our youngest member!

"What are you doing?"

"I see..."


We had 300+ shots total, so choosing is pretty tough.  We were lucky too the weather cooperated since it was rainy season already at that time and that the kids, especially little Sophia, were all in a great mood!

 I'm trying to compile this into a photo book to give to my parents and siblings. Hope I can organize all these wonderful photos!

I also hope to show you our home for this summer next week!

Have a Great Weekend!
