Empowering Photography For Creatives

We’re a versatile and stylish creative company specializing in inclusive photography that empowers our clients and puts them in control of their own. We focus on capturing once-in-a-lifetime moments, inspiring conversations, and nurturing aspiring artists to achieve their dreams and reach their highest potential. 

Our work includes event photoshoots, non-traditional portrait photography, and authentic personal branding. We believe that a photoshoot should be a creative sanctuary — a place where artistry, community, and entrepreneurship converge in the form of timeless photography that shows the world your true, authentic self.


I'm Corine (pronounced "Koh-reen")!

  • A creative portrait and event photographer who believes that photoshoots can be a place of healing and self-expression — all while creating beautiful art

  • 25 with two dog babies

  • UNC-Chapel Hill alum 

  • Made Avatar: The Last Airbender, my entire personality

  • Proud to be a queer Filipina immigrant!

  • Bad at taking photos of my own life (but a master at photographing others!)

  • Doing my best to keep my plants alive

So ... why did I embrace the life of an artist?

A not-so-straight-forward quest for passion & purpose.

As a former pre-med student, I had a narrow view of what it meant to help people. I thought that in order to “do good” I needed to pursue a career in healthcare, and for a while, it seemed like that was the future I was destined for. But life had other plans. I’ve since grown to learn that helping people means more than just attending to their physical needs — it also means allowing their spirit to flourish and supporting them as they work toward their personal dreams.


After my 50th existential crisis (give or take), I realized how all kinds of art helped my loved ones and I get through tough times. I immersed myself in my passion for photography and started to practice my art in a way that would support others the way I wish I had been supported growing up in a world that often seemed designed to make me and so many others feel insecure. We deserve better, and I want to do my part to create a better future for us all.


We live in a world that takes art for granted ... until we need it. I use my art to empower people by letting them find their unique voices and making sure they leave every photoshoot with positive self-perception. Through empowering photography and compassionate art of all kinds, we can grow and thrive together as we work towards building a better, kinder world.
