I got started with photography by watching and helping my mom in her own photo developing studio at home. I then went to school for graphic design and learned the technical aspects of the trade in various photography classes. Later on, I developed it, even more, when I started my own lifestyle blog where I get to work with brands creating content accompanied by professional photos.
I love taking pictures with natural light of nature and people. Capturing the beauty around my city and anywhere else I get to travel. Capturing the rare side of a person in a different way (maybe jumping?!) while the background is a beautiful sunset landscape might be an ideal portrait. I love chasing the light, the ideal space and playing with it, see how it reacts with my subjects, I love being able to capture that magic and deliver it to the clients!
The beach is always a great place, there are many of them around San Diego, so it makes it for a big open canvas. About 2 hours before the sunset is my most favorite time too. When itâ€™s not the beach, I love finding new areas, new spaces or interiors that are modern and have a great sense of style to them.See Portfolio & Book
I got started with photography when I was a part of Gawad Kalinga (non-profit organizations in the Philippines), I was tasked in documenting our projects through photographs and written accounts. I traveled around the country, visiting beautiful towns, and meeting many passionate and hardworking people. It was a little bit later that Salt and Light Christian Community and Red Cross opened more opportunities for me to tell more stories of hard work, bravery and unity in times of adversity.
My favorite type of shoots are family portraits. There is something very refreshing about getting to know each member and establishing a connection with them. Especially in a beautiful city like San Diego, every location I plan for the family gives them joy which brings out a bright and airy vibe through out the session.
Balboa Park, San Diego. The park is an endless play on textures, colors, and scenes. It is home to many Museums, The San Diego Zoo, The Japanese Friendship Garden, Spreckles Theatre, The California Tower, oh, I can go on and on about how many interesting things to photograph here. The area is so versatile, all it takes is a few minutes walk to completely change the scenery.See Portfolio & Book
