Featured in “Greater Good Magazine”

  I’m so honored and flattered my photos are featured in an article about AWE and BEAUTY, on the UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center website. I’ve enjoyed adding photos to my pandemic diary, without really thinking about the therapeutic properties it has had on my soul. And now, I know the scientific basis why!… Read More

Back with a vengeance.

And I am a blogger, once again. Welcome to the new and improved website and blog! It’s been nearly two years since my last blog entry and about 8 years since I updated my photography website.  The changes were long overdue. Yes, change seems to be the theme of it all. I believe my work… Read More

I like my work and I know my clients like my images too (otherwise they would not hire me) but I’ve always felt this void where I felt I should have a photography degree. Growing up, I was always into the arts and was constantly drawing… Read More

Just launched: The Modern Balikbayan Bride

A great resource for Filipina brides has come onto the market in the form of the fresh-off-the-presses coffee table book: The Modern Balikbayan Bride by Kaye Cloutman.  I was honored and happy to contribute an image which landed on the cover! “Balikbayan” literally translates as return-country. This implies that the Filipina bride will return to… Read More
