About Joy


Artwork by my good friend Phil Angeles

Hi everyone!

I guess I should talk a bit about myself. I’ll try to make it really short to avoid putting you to sleep.

I was born and raised in the Philippines, and I speak Tagalog fluently! When I was 11, I, along with my father and sister, joined my mother in Toronto.

A few years ago, I married my husband; he has the patience of an angel.

I’ve been taking photos professionally since 2007, mostly of engagements and weddings. I’ve also been in the legal industry for over 10 years as a legal assistant in residential real estate, immigration, and corporate law. Most recently, I’ve been focusing in immigration law.

I’ve also recently gone back to school part-time and been taking courses here and there towards a degree. So far, so good. 🙂

And I’m a dog and cat person! We have a dog named Ben and a couple of cats named Babs and LF. Recently, we adopted/bought a pet snake! I’m not a snake person but I’m in love with our ball python whose name is Leonard.

Sometimes I volunteer with Toronto Cat Rescue, Toronto Animal Services, and Speaking of Dogs. I take photos of fosters, so they are able to “sell themselves” more. If you’re involved in a rescue and you believe I might be able to help, don’t hesitate to message me!

My dreams and goals are all in honour of God, my husband, mother and sisters and in memory of my father, Boomer, Cody, Dizzy, Bambam, Monina, Monana, and Bebsy.
