About

For the longest time I have been researching inside me about my true identity and my purpose in this world. I found in God my guidance and through His eyes I could finally see myself. 

I am here to serve you, and to help you see yourself with love. I am here to show you that your relationship with your loved one is the most special treasure you have in this life and having a moment to connect again is the most precious gift you will ever receive.

I felt alone once, trying to figure out what is next, completely lost in a place that wasn’t home. Photography saved me by showing me the path to the light and allowed me to connect first with myself and then with incredible people like you. Photography gave me the opportunity to bring to life so many dreams like mine, yours and your family dreams.

“Be kind to your body, gentle with your mind and patient with your heart. Stay true to your spirit, cherish your soul and never doubt yourself. You are still becoming, my love, and there is no one more deserving of the nurturing grace of your love.” - Becca Lee

I’ve always been an adventurous and free-spirit girl. When I was young I used to leave my mom crazy because I was always into something she wouldn’t approve of. I was the girl that came back home with scraped knees, the one that needed some stitches here and there and the girl that used to come home with black feet for running all day barefoot with the boys outside.

My mom is an artist and I grew up watching my dad photographing everyone, every time. With time I started to develop interest in my dad’s camera, which made him crazy, as I hid inside the closet to play with his precious equipment. My dad gave me my first film camera when I was 9yo and grand dad gave me my first digital camera when I was 13yo. I was always the one photographing organic and candid moments and I fell in love with it every single click.

It was only after I moved to the USA from Brazil, that I started to see this as a profession. Before leaving Brazil, I printed all my family photos and brought the ones important to me in photographs to look every time my heart felt tight. I started to realize how important those moments were and how much I appreciated being with them. I also started to photograph the baby I used to watch at the house I lived in and how happy the mom used to be every time I sent her pictures of moments she had missed. (She still thanks me to this day).

It was when I started to realize how much I want to bring those smiles to the ones that see value in simple moments in life. I have found myself again in photographing connections and milestones and I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to work with what I love.

If you want to know me better, get to talk about your experiences and what you like, I would love to connect!!!
