About me

Hi, I am Ces and thank you for stopping by. A brief background about me, I work as a software developer on weekdays and on weekends, I photograph weddings, maternity, engagement and families.

 

My photography started as a hobby back in 2009. I have been photographing landscapes, portraits of families and friends, and sports activities since then.

 

On September 2017, a colleague asked me if I did a maternity photo shoot before. I said yes and explained that I did a photo shoot when my wife was pregnant with our daughter in 2014. She then asked me if I could take photos of her as well. And so we did the maternity photo shoot. Weeks later, she referred her other colleague and also asked me for maternity photos. It gave me the idea to build my portfolio from there - to photograph real models other than families and friends. And so from October to December 30 2017, I have been offering free photo sessions for families, expectant mothers and engaged couples to build my portfolio.

 

And by the way, a big thank you to the families who participated in the free family photo shoots last year to help me build my portfolio and in return have their high resolution images.

A special thanks to my very supportive wife.
