Raleigh Family Photographer | Hello, is it me your looking for?
Could we be the perfect pair?
Photography is an art and no photographer is the same. We all have our own styles and subjects that make us come alive. For me, it’s portraiture & lifestyle photography. I am drawn to bright, vivid, colorful photos and the personal connection of storytelling brings me immense joy. I enter each session looking to capture emotion and connection, so personal branding, family, and senior portraits are my specialties. I take the time to get to know my clients and what they really want out of their session. I’m not here for volume - I care about developing a relationship and I walk with each client every step of the way.
Over the years I’ve learned how to ask the right questions to ensure that a client’s vision becomes a reality – each shoot is custom and this is what I believe sets me apart from other photographers. I ensure that every detail meets a client’s goals and that takes more time than a typical 15-minute mini-session. I love to photograph the celebrations of life and always look to bring out what makes each person unique. The photography process isn’t about me, it’s about my client – it’s their chance to showcase who they really are and let their beauty shine.
While I sometimes do traditional posed photography when requested (picture your family all faced forward in height order or your yearly school photos), I find that pictures really come to life in situational posing where clients are placed in their ideal staging and I can move around get the right angles, taking them into account as a whole person. I’m well-versed in lighting and I know which lenses to choose for your stage and vision. It’s these small details that I take pride in – photography isn’t just my job, it’s what I love to do.
You might be my client if you….

Value the connections in your life - family, friends, loved ones.
Want a photographer who is willing to spend the time it takes to really capture your story.
You’re cool with the fact that we’re going to have fun and sometimes I get a little excited!
You love details and want to capture them. Everything from that cute shirt you bought, to your son’s curl on the nape of his neck, your Grandma’s dimples, or the funny way your teenager’s eyebrows raise when she laughs.
Value a personalized experience and know that it's ok if everything doesn't go exactly to plan, especially where toddlers are concerned.
You don't want to wait long to see a preview. (I'm talking ASAP, like before you get home from your session.)
You want to connect with your photos so much that you tear up when you see the gallery.
You trust the process and know that I’m not happy unless you’re satisfied.
You don't mind my signature, spirited Brazilian accent!
If I sound like I might be the photographer for you, don’t be shy – I’d love to chat and see if I can help make your vision a reality!
