With an eye for detail and a passion for capturing simple moments through a camera
lens, I’m grateful for the work I do as a professional photographer in Wake Forest, North
Carolina, throughout the greater Raleigh-Durham area, and beyond.
During your photo session, it’s my job to put you at ease, make you feel comfortable
and capture the best of you.
I help us move beyond the anxiety of photo-taking, the meltdown of a toddler or the
defiance of an uncooperative teen.
I capture your family dynamic, your professional headshot, your love as a couple or a
a moment in the life of your high school senior.
Born in Brazil, I’ve been in the U.S. since I was 18. While my path to U.S. citizenship
hasn’t been an easy one, I will cherish my right to vote in 2020. And someday write a
book about my experience.
My professional photography business began in 2013. Every year, I train on the latest
techniques to advance the value I bring to my clients.
I met my husband Alex--the love of my life--while working as a business owner and
translator in Richmond, Virginia. We married in 2009 and welcomed our precious baby
girl, Gabriella Margaret in 2012. With her, my passion for photography was born and my
professional journey began.
Penelope and Quinn followed, and our family was complete. I continued to hone my
skills with classes and workshops every year to best serve my clients. It's my mission to provide my clients
with something I never got—photographs of their
childhood and those special moments and memories that define who we are.
