quick facts about me
My family inspired the loved for captured memories in me from a very young age. Photography was and still is a huge part of our lives. Every special moment has to be documented, so you can imagine there is no shortage of family albums in this household.
Times have changed and techniques have improved greatly, but I also believe in timeless photography. The fun, classy and elegant photos that can hang on your wall for years without ever going out of style.
+ Yes! I would absolutely love to include your dog in the photos! That little guy next to me is Ricco and he just turned 4.
+ I have a little Italian in me from my mother's side but I'm originally from Brazil, so I'm fluent in English & Portuguese (I also get by with my Spanish)
+ I have a huge and loud family that I adore, and they have made me a pro at dealing with chaos during those family formals. I can round up everyone in 2 secs!
+ Spring is my absolute favorite season, but I'm also always down for a session in the snow.
+ If I wasn't a photographer I would most likely be a party planner or wedding cake baker - In other words, weddings are MY THING!
My style is about keeping things natural and authentic, my colors are vibrant with a mix of soft lights and strong shadows.
Photographing a couple's journey has shown me how powerful capturing memories can be. Each client I take on is utterly special to me. I am very humble to be making a profession out of something that I love so much.
While editing my work I focus especially on the skin tones. I aim to get them as natural as possible while making the image bright and the colors strong.
My goal is for my clients to be able to look back years from now and still be in absolutely in love with their images.
Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, but the interest of photographing professionally really sparked when I took a photography class, as a general studies course for my IT major. Although I signed up for that class for the sole purpose of being in the same room as my best friend, I got so much more out of it. That same year I changed my career path to focus on photography.
Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester!
I love a beach with bright sand and clear water. At Wingaersheek we get that and more. There are green tall grass pathways, huge rocks and cliffs, all tied together with a beautiful sunset.
I also love hiking up mountains in NH for those breathtaking views. They make for a perfect backdrop!
Give me all the colors!
Yes, my love for spring has a lot to do with the flowers blooming. But it's also the best season to photograph at my favorite place to be, the beach.
Our summer's are short so for those few months the beaches are always crowded. Beat the sunbathers and hit the beach in the spring.
I wish it was closer, but every couple of years I travel back home to visit the family. Brazil is such a beautiful country to visit and being with family always warms my heart.
