Hello, friends. Welcome to my flickr website.

It's me, Chiqui. Or Kat. Or Mamarazzi.

I am a Filipino living in Toronto and a mommy to three most amazing young children ages 10, 8 and 6, who light up my world.

I love taking photos. I've loved it since my little hands could hold a Pentax camera (my dad's in the 70's) I love documenting life in all its wonder so much so that I've decided to go pro with it.

Samples from my new biz are here: www.katshots.com

I love drawing and painting, too. Here's one of my latest ~

I have been a flickr member since 2005 and here's my first-ever upload from Oct, 2005, a testament for my love for trees and nature. Yup, that's me, the tree-humping hugging mama! :D

I love you, Firetree!

I am blessed by flickr's online community in terms of learning more about photography, art and life in general. I am thankful to the point of feeling overwhelmed for the many friendships I've made and continue to keep here.

I am an artist. I live to create art. It is my true joy and my life's passion. Proof below of how I simply loved to create from age 2...those are my dad's writing pens in my teeny tiny hands which I used to draw my kiddie masterpieces.

my first pens!

Come by anytime and comment often. I love the happy noise of it! ;) Testimonials are nice, too, if you're moved to write one.

Grateful for your visit, today and always. Peace!

LOVE.


The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. ~ Albert Einstein

    "Kat is a constant inspiration and I am always in amazement of her various talents...through the lens, through a song, a lyric, words, or drawing ... with pure love for her family she seems to put it all together effortlessly. I come to her stream when I need a little joy there's always a gift awaiting and an inspiration to draw from. Thank you Kat for always sharing from the heart."

    "Former-pop-star-turned-photographer-super-mom Kat takes beautiful images of her beautiful red, pink and blue kids. It is a privilege to be able to catch glimpses into their family life. Kat is also highly creative when it comes to other areas in photography... she can make ice look like something else completely! I am honored to have Kat as a Flickr friend. One day, I shall sit in one of those breakfast chairs... I hope."

    "Kat's photostream overflows with charm, honesty, intelligence, fun, joy and love! As if that wasn't enough, this supermom articulates -- and boy, can she articulate! -- words that grab you and make you go, "Wow!"

    You'll laugh with her, cry with her, hug her beautiful kids with her and join her in the good-natured and delicious mischief of taking pictures of newlyweds' feet!"

    "Sol, Oona and Joshim are such lucky children to have Kat as their mother, to love and guide them through their lives. She has documented precious life moments for them with such creativity and passion and one day they are going to be so grateful for these photographic memories, these little gems. All you have to do is look at Kat’s stream and you easily can see the multi-talented, fun loving, warm, gracious person that she is. Oh, and I can’t forget the fact that she is a PS wizard as well.

    Kat, one of my first flickrpals has a wonderful spirit and is a warm, caring individual. Through her photographs you can see that she has a natural photographic eye, is creative with her compositions and takes soulful, sometimes ‘gigilesque’ images. To boot, this woman used to be in showbiz!! ……One day I would love to hear her belt out a tune!"
