"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still" -Unknown

San Jose State University Alumni : BFA in Digital Media

I was born in the little island of Bohol, Philippines in the summer of 1982. My life changed dramatically when my family moved to San Francisco, California in 1988. Since then I have always been a "California Girl." During my adolencent years, I always loved photos (being in them rather than taking them at the time). In senior year, I decided to go behind the camera rather than in front of it. I took a photography class which taught me the basic knowledge on photography as well as how to develop my own pictures. During college, I put down my camera and decided to be more digital. Majoring in Digital Media, I learned how to use graphic softwares, such as, Adobe Photoshop, Flash and Dreamweaver to be more creative. It wasn't until 2012 that I decided to combine my love of photography and my knowledge in Digital Media to pursue this venture. Donnacille Photography was then born. Every project, I learn to enhance my skills. To be able to work with wonderful people and capture the most precious moments in their lives is a wonderful feeling. I hope to be doing this for the rest of my life.
