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.

I'm a full-time mom to baby Lucas and full-time photographer (oh, and I sleep somewhere in between.. haha!). Photographing babies is my passion for many years, but after having a baby last December, I started to love my job even more. As a mom, I fully understand what those precious memories of our little ones mean and how important is to have them. My photos are not only about the perfect focus, best angle and the bright lighting, it's all about the moment, connection and LOVE! My goal is to create beautiful memories for families to enjoy for many years and generations to come.

I studied photography at University of South Florida (USA) and I first started working as a wedding photographer nine years ago but I realized that working with 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 photographers. It was definitely an incredible experience! 

My work was featured on TV, magazines and 2 of my images won the “Baby Photo Awards” international contest in 2018. Also in 2018 I made to the top 100 featured artists by NAPCP. I was also rated as the best 3 newborn photographers in Richmond in 2018 and 2019 by Three Best Rated

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

Awards

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.
