It all started as a hobby. I took pictures of insects, morning dew, flowers of all colors and sizes. I went thru the phase of post processing my photos the wrong way. I joined clubs and workshops. Researched the web and stalked my favorite photographers – Jasmine Star! To make the story short, I made mistakes in the past and learned from them. I can truly say I have found my spot where I don’t need to copy someone else’s work or try to be a photographer I’m not. My work is a reflection of what’s inside me – the dreams that I continue to chase, my happily ever after. If you don’t see me holding a camera or taking pictures (which is not normal), you’ll find me:

  • Cycling. I’m addicted to cycling. Thus, the morena skin color.
  • Scuba diving. Because it is so quiet down there. The color of the sea amazes me. How I deeply wish that one day I’d be able to buy an underwater camera.
  • With the LOVES of my life – Marcus, Matthieu and the two Niño’s.
  • At the beach. The best place in my book to hold an e-sesh is always there. The sound of the waves, the palm trees dancing, the sand in between my toes, the smell of the sea. Just the perfect ingredient to weave moments together!
  • Pounding my keyboard and starting at the computer monitor. Because deadlines don’t end. I personally edit photos. It takes me 8-12 weeks editing time to deliver the finished product.


I also believe that when you write down your dreams, it attracts the universe to make it happen. Sharing with you my bucket list. This list will continue to grow longer.

  • Photograph an Indian wedding in India.
  • See Batanes

  • julai - Hi Miss Mai. it´s me again.hehehe. Same here, my love for yellow has nothing to do with the President or his mother.:) It´s inborn I guess, hehee kay sukad pa sa bata pako gnahan naman ko ug yellow.

  • Chameleon - Hi, i’m one of your followers in instagram and I found out that you’re a nurse (correct me if I’m wrong). Just wanna ask how long did you practice nursing before pursuing your passion for photography.

    I’m also a nurse but I practiced it for just 3 months. :))ReplyCancel
