My Beginnings- I am a Brazilian that loves to live life to the fullest. Growing up in Brazil meant that I walked around barefoot and played in the warm, tropical rain. Moving to the United States as a young girl with her family was very eye opening. I had to learn a new language by interacting with friends and watching cartoons! But because I watched everyone very intently to learn, it gave me the ability to really pay attention to people. As I grew up to be an adult woman of 6 feet in height, most people watched and paid attention to me! As much as I love that, I also enjoy making others feel special. This is what photography has become to me. A way of letting others know that how I see them is beautiful. I want them to feel confident and comfortable in being who they are!
I am a wife to a wonderful husband who loves his family, and a mother to three busy sons who play every sport under the sun! My husband and I struggled to have kids in the beginning, but we were finally blessed with these young men. As a family, we connect through sports activities together and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is one of the reasons that I am in love with action and lifestyle style of photography. I want to see the connection you have with your families, and it always makes me smile when I have achieved this goal.
