hello there

Welcome to my website! I am an award-winner maternity, newborn, baby and family 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.

Last December we had a baby boy called Lucas. Being a new mom is so challenging and so rewarding. It's the most difficult but still the best thing in the world.

I studied photography at University of South Florida (USA) and I first started working as a wedding photographer eight years ago but I realized that babies were my true passion. Since early 2013, newborn photography is my specialty and I also enjoy capturing expecting mamas, babies and families. I'm always learning and improving my skills through photography workshops and in person and online classes. I had the opportunity to meet and learn in person with some of my favourite newborn photographers around the world: 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 in Latin America, LUME, for about 600 amazing photographers. It was definitely an incredible experience! 

My work was featured on TV, magazines and two of my images won the “Baby Photo Awards” international contest. 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


2018 is definitely one of the most special years both for my career and personal life. Two of my images won the Baby Photo Awards International Contest and I was selected as the TOP 100 2018 Featured Artist on NAPCP and I will have one of my images displayed at NAPCP Inspired Gallery Event in Atlanta, Georgia on August 23rd.
