In Manila, lifestyle photography has gained immense popularity over the years as it captures candid and natural moments in people’s lives, making them more memorable. As a professional photographer with almost a decade of living experience in Asia, my focus has always been on people and lifestyle photography, and I have been fortunate enough to pursue my passion in the Philippines.

My goal as a Manila portrait photographer is to capture the essence of everyday life in this vibrant city, and to achieve this is possible through my unique approach to lifestyle photography. Whether it’s capturing families spending quality time together, couples sharing romantic moments, or individuals showcasing their personalities, I strive to document real-life experiences in the most natural way possible.
What is a Lifestyle Photographer?
A lifestyle photographer is a professional who specializes in capturing candid and natural moments in people’s lives, as opposed to traditional portrait photography. The focus of lifestyle photography is to document real-life experiences and tell a story through pictures.
As a Manila portrait photographer, my belief is that every person has a unique story, and it’s my job to capture it through my lens. Whether it’s a family enjoying a day out in the city or a couple walking hand in hand through the streets, aiming to create timeless images that will be cherished for generations to come is my ultimate goal.
What does a Lifestyle Photographer do?
By hiring me as your lifestyle photographer, you could benefit from various photography sessions, including family portraits, couple sessions, individual portraits, and urban portraits. You are free to choose from different packages for these sessions, including Bronze, Silver, and Gold, and they can be conducted in single or multiple locations.
Focusing on capturing candid moments in iconic locations, particularly on High Street in Bonifacio Global City, allows me to create the best images for you. This area is the most beautiful location in the entire Metro Manila, and it provides the perfect backdrop for lifestyle photography sessions.
Can a Family Photo Session be considered Lifestyle Photography?
Absolutely! A family photo session can be considered lifestyle photography if it captures candid moments and natural interactions among family members. Matching outfits are well-known in Asia, and it helps in creating cohesive and visually appealing family portraits.
As a family portrait photographer, I understand the importance of capturing real-life moments and showcasing families’ unique bonds. My approach to family photography is to let families be themselves while capturing their natural interactions and emotions through my lens.
To help you choose the perfect photography session, I offer a variety of packages, including Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each package provides different options and locations, ensuring you get the best experience possible.
The Bronze package is perfect for individuals or couples wanting a quick, easy, 1-hour photography session. It includes one location and one hour of shooting time, and you’ll receive up to 20 edited photos(ok, usually a lot more because my clients always receive great images).
The Silver package is ideal for small families or couples who want more variety in their photos. It includes two locations and two hours of shooting time, and you’ll receive 40 edited photos.
Finally, the Gold package is perfect for larger families or those who want a more comprehensive photography session. It includes three locations and three hours of shooting time, and you’ll receive 60 edited photos.
Because I have to do my best at all times, most of my sessions end up with more photos than initially agreed, overdelivering far more images than needed.

One of the most popular sessions I offer is family portraits. Family is the cornerstone of every community, and capturing those precious moments with your loved ones is essential. Whether in the comfort of your own home or a beautiful park, my goal is to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere that allows you to be yourself. All families are encouraged to bring their pets or incorporate matching outfits for a more cohesive look.
Another popular session is couples portraits. Whether for engagement photos or to capture those special moments with your significant other, my approach to couples portraits is to create a romantic and natural atmosphere. I’ll guide you through poses and prompts that showcase your love for each other while also capturing the beautiful scenery of Manila.
Individual portraits are perfect for those who want to capture their unique personality or commemorate a special milestone. Whether for professional headshots or to have a beautiful photo of yourself, my approach to individual portraits is to make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
For those who want a more unique and edgy look to their photos, I offer urban portraits in the bustling streets of Manila. Whether in front of colorful murals or the city’s heart, these photos are perfect for those who want to showcase their personality and style more unconventionally.
If you can’t decide on just one location, don’t worry! I offer multiple location sessions(upon availability) so that you can capture different aspects of your life and personality. This is perfect for families or couples who want more variety in their photos.
In conclusion, as a Manila portrait photographer, I believe lifestyle photography is a powerful tool that captures candid and natural moments in people’s lives. My goal is to provide you with the best experience possible, ensuring that you get the most out of your photography session.
Whether you’re looking for family portraits, couple sessions, or individual portraits, my approach to lifestyle photography will help you create timeless images that will be cherished for generations to come. So, book a photography session with me, and let’s capture your unique story through my lens.
