18th Birthday

Dancing with her uncle

The 18th birthday is very important milestone in life. Filipino’s don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate this exciting time in life. They don’t celebrate the same way that most Canadians do, which is to get drunk at the clubs. Instead they have a huge celebration where they invite all family and friends together in honour of the new adult. This is called a debut. 

I was called last minute to do the photography for the event. I am so happy that I got the chance to celebrate this once in a lifetime(especially since I will never get on myself). It was a very fun night. Great music, wonderful people, and tasty food. It was one of those nights where you leave with more energy then you started with!

This cake was delicious!
