Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, I came to the US to get an education in interior design. Art has always been a part of my life – my mother worked in art museums, my family owned art galleries – there has always been a curiosity and appreciation for all things creative. After I completed my degree I opened an event design studio in Fort Lauderdale where wedding flowers were the main focus. For seven years I worked as a floral designer and I adored it. During that time I began to explore photography in order to build my event design portfolio.
I now live in San Diego with my beloved husky Bella and I have fallen in love with photography and the creative process. I see every shoot as an opportunity to learn or try something new. My photography is organic and unstructured, candid and un-posed, natural, unplanned, honest and wrapped in Southern California style. I seek to photograph the beauty in the world around me so that you may experience it the way I do. What you see in my Etsy shop is my passion, my joy and my vision. To me, photography is a privilege and I am honored to be able to capture memories that others will treasure for years to come.
Photography is my passion. What you see in my portfolio is my vision, my joy, my world.

Here are five tips to improve your attitude (and in turn your portraits).
