Born in Rio de Janeiro-Brasil , grew up surrounded by an astonishing and exotique landscape that mixes deep shades of green and blue. Having lived in such a place helped me develop a big passion for nature and all its aspects. Growing up there gave me such a good sense of aesthetics due to the huge diversity, being in touch with people from different backgrounds, living in a mixed society is the best that could have ever happened to me.
I wasn’t born a photographer, I didn’t grow up dreaming to be a photographer, I thought I was born to be a doctor, perhaps a writer on the side. The art and skills came to me later in life, I now see beautiful pictures where I used to see nothing at all. I am a down-to-earth girl, with a camera and a love for capturing the moment, I have had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember, even back on my finance days in banking the camera would be my best companion on my trips around the world.
My goal as a photographer is about capturing the moment. A photo where you can feel the warmth and hear the laughter. I am thrilled that my career is something that I absolutely love doing – photographing people! I am thankful for the blessing I’ve been given to live out my life’s passion.
I didn’t assist for anybody. I just started doing it! The way I do it is just the way I do it. Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow!
