Nothing more satisfies my love for cooking than to hear my kids say “Mama, that was yummy!” I’m Irene. Born in Manila, and raised in San Diego. I’ve always loved photography, but never had the means to get into it…until now! I love natural light and photography that tells stories. I’m married to my very best friend and coolest computer guy with the amazing blue eyes Shay.


My day usually includes at least one cup of brewed coffee and the rest is mostly spent figuring out what my two lil ones, Chloe and Walle, are up to when I’m not looking. When I’m not shooting pictures, I love to go for runs, cook great meals, and travel to exotic places. I graduated from Moody Bible Institute with a B.S. in Biblical Studies. I’m thankful that I can live in Fallbrook, California close to family. I’m in my 30’s, and never would claim to be perfect but I am forgiven. If you want to know what that means, then feel free to ask me. Oh and I love donuts.
