Tell us a bit about your approach to the work you do, your time in the business and a few personal facts about you.

I think that childhood is full of wonder and beauty, there is little in the world that is more magical than the mind of a child. My goal as a photographer is to capture all the innocence, sweetness and joy they bring to the world. With my photos I want to create memories, moments that are frozen and treasured forever. My redhair daughters are my major inspiration and my husband my greatest fan and support, I couldnt achieve anything without them.

Magical location and wonderful golden light is the key of my photography ,I have been working as an outdoor children photographer for 3 years.

What makes you the most nervous during a session?

For my sessions I usually travel in search of locations. Many times the session takes place in a place that I did not previously know. It generates a bit of nerves to be able to find those wonderful pockets of light that make magical my photos. Many times I take pictures of children with animals, so I depend on children and animals to connect and I need both them to look good in the photos.

What about this session was most memorable?

This session takes place the week of Christma holidaysys. My family and I rented a county house to spent christmas together. The house was amazing, there were a field of soy, and lot of animals. The pictures were taken one afternoon since one hour till sunset to after sunset. The most memorable thing was to have the chance of potographing my girls together and having fun with teh animals wich contact the enjoy so much.

Were there any hurdles?

The session was in a country house and it was summertime, and the place was full of mosquitoes.

What is your best photographer/session advice?

My advice about photography would be love what you do when you work for what you love everything is treated with ease and pleasure, passion drives us. Dream big, do not be afraid of failures. Practice every day for understanding the light better. The key in children’s photography is to connect with children, get up to them, look at their eyes and play with them. For a while again being the child we were.

What is one goal for your business ?

This year I want to deepen my desire to generate visual content for brands of children’s clothing. I also want to advance in the development of online teaching content for photographers.  

What gear was used to achieve these?
