Hello! My name is Karen De Borja...
I am first and foremost a sinner saved only by the grace of Jesus Christ!
Trying my best to shine His light and do His will for His kingdom in my life!
I am also the very proud mother of four beautiful little girls, two sweetest little boys, and expecting
our 7th little blessing in July of 2022!
I am a very blessed to be married to my best friend whom I've known since I was just 12 years old!!
My love for photography was planted in my heart when I was just a little girl...
It always fascinated me how a vapor in time can be captured visually and preserved forever!
God's love and my family is my main inspiration for my photography...
My kids have grown so fast that i feel as their mom it's a must for me to visually document their precious moments in life...
There is so much beauty in every corner of this life, and i can hear it's call "Take A picture of me!"...
(or it's probably my kids i'm hearing!)...
i love God....
i love my family...
i love life...
and i love photography!
I pray I have the opportunity to bless you with images you can cherish forever!
Thank you & God bless,
