hello there

Welcome to my website! I am a custom maternity, newborn and baby photographer based in Richmond, BC. I am originally from Brazil and in 2015 my amazing husband, our funny two dogs and I moved to Canada.

I studied photography at University of South Florida (Tampa, Florida) and I first started working as a wedding photographer seven years ago but I realized that babies were my true passion. Since early 2013, newborn photography is my specialty and I also enjoy capturing babies and families. I'm always learning and improving my skills through photography workshops and online classes. I had the opportunity to meet and learn with some of my favourite newborn photographers around the world as Caralee Case, Jennifer Nace, Luisa Dunn and Stephanie Robin.

In 2015, I had the honour to speak at two of the most important events about newborn photography in Brazil, “O2 Desafio Newborn” and “Newborn Secrets”. In 2018, I also spoke at the largest photography conference of Latin America, LUME, for about 600 amazing photographers. It was definitely an incredible experience!

I’m a proud member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP).

Newborn photography is my pride and joy. I feel so lucky to get to do what I love and I feel honoured to capture these once in a lifetime memories for wonderful families.

If you like what you see in my portfolio, you are going to love your photos! I can’t wait to meet your family and create unique memories for you!

what is in my bag

You might have heard that "a good camera doesn't make a good photo" and that's true, I mean, half true. I believe that a good equipment and a good photographer work together to create a perfect image. Technology is here to help us and to get the sharpest, clearest photograph possible, you need to couple modern optics with a modern camera. Here is what I have in my bag:

- Nikon D810 camera body
- Nikon D600 camera body
- Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
- Nikon 50mm f/1.4
- Nikon 85mm f/1.8
- Nikon (Macro) 105mm f/2.8
