HEY, THERE!

I’m so glad you’re here! Grab a cup of coffee and take a look around.

My name is Cheeky - yep, that’s my real name! I wish it wasn’t because (1) I’m not a monkey 😂, (2) I don’t think I’m cheeky at all, and (3) it sounds pretty childish and I’m 30-ish years old. I just don’t think it works, but it is what it is... 💁🏻‍♀️

I’m a photographer based in Murray, KY. I’m a mom, wife, hard core home buddy with a travel bug, DIYer, emoji overuser, foodie, occasional Netflix binge-watcher, and hopefully your next photographer.

I’ve been taking photos for as long as I can remember. Not just coz I’m asian, well, maybe it’s partly that... 😅 Seriously though, I’ve always loved capturing moments & seasons in life that I never want to forget. And I would love to do that for you, too!

MEET MY FAMILY

My husband (Shea) and daughter (Zoe) - basically my whole heart in one photo… 💓

In case you’re curious, I was born & raised in the Philippines. I never really dreamed of living in the US, but obviously, God had other plans. In 2013, I packed my entire life in two suitcases and moved to Lexington, KY - all for love! Sounds cheesy but it’s true! 😅I pretty much left everything (family, friends, career, etc) and basically started from scratch. It wasn’t easy but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I love my little family!

Late last year, we moved and now live in Murray, KY (my husband’s hometown). So, I’m basically starting from scratch again but it’s all good. I’m a city girl but I’m adjusting to small town living just fine. I know we’re here for a reason, and some of those reasons are starting to unfold. Also, the saying “bloom where you’re planted” keeps me going! So, here I am, taking on photography as a career. I don’t know where this journey will take me, but follow along and we’ll find out together.

If you’re local and you see me somewhere, do say hi! I’d love to be friends with you! If you’re on social media, you can follow me on Facebook or Instagram by clicking the social icons below. 🤗
