Similarities in habits, language and religion are some of the few factors that blend the Mexicans and Filipinos together. But among all other things, it is the food and festivities that make these two culture a perfect mix. This fusion is what Mommy Katrina and With A Flourish arranged with all their love to give Diego an extraordinary first birthday bash. While everyone was having fun, Mot Rasay Photography made sure that every moment of this day will be lasting. With A Flourish also chipped in a few snaps to complete this celebration’s photo book.
