Hi, my name is
Genelyn Jaye Aguilar.
Capturing life with intrinsic motivation, one photo at a time.
Based in Seattle, WA.
My passion for photography is driven by an internal desire to document memories of not only my own life but to also capture the lives around me.
I’m an aspiring traveler, an adrenaline junkie, a Friday-night home-body and an adventure-seeker all wrapped in one. I prioritize family, and I thrive off the energy of others.
I am a recent graduate from the University of Washington with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, and a proud nanny on the side. I’m known to be an optimistic, outgoing, and friendly individual who will probably go through animated measures to make you crack a smile. I’m passionate about laughter and have a natural desire to grow and learn in ways within and beyond a classroom-setting.
What does it mean to capture life with intrinsic motivation?
It means to document memories in a way that isn’t controlled by monetary value or others’ motives that differentiate from your own aspirations. My goal in photography is to allow myself to be inspired and impacted by others, but to not allow external factors influence my internal eagerness to capture life through a lens.
If you’re ready to connect, I would love to meet and hear your story! I’m excited to see what aspect of your life you would like me to capture and would be honored to do so!
