A little girl from Nicaragua
My journey begins in the vibrant yet tumultuous landscapes of Nicaragua, a country marked by the scars of war and the challenge of extreme poverty. In 1985, amidst the chaos of conflict, my mother embarked on a daring escape with me and my four younger sisters, venturing into the vast unknown. This pivotal chapter of my life ignited a profound passion for photography—a medium through which I could seize fleeting moments, finding beauty in the most unexpected places. It taught me to cherish every second, instilling a deep appreciation for the world’s hidden wonders. Photography has become a vital part of my healing process, a way to navigate through the turmoil of past experiences towards a place of peace and self-discovery. I am profoundly thankful for the opportunity to share the insights from my journey with my clients, guiding them towards their own paths of healing and self-expression.
Growing up as the eldest of six girls, under the nurturing guidance of a resilient mother and grandmother, I’ve been intimately acquainted with the strength and complexity of women. This has deeply influenced my work, driving me to capture the raw emotions and diverse experiences of women’s lives. My mission is simple yet powerful: to create art that reflects the delicate balance of vulnerability and strength inherent in every woman. My commitment to fostering women’s empowerment and radical self-acceptance is at the core of everything I do.
My artistic expression is deeply rooted in the medium of black and white portraiture. This choice is not merely aesthetic but intentional, challenging me to delve deeper into the essence of emotion, capturing the soul through contrasts of light and shadow. There’s an undeniable magic in the timeless dance between these elements, a beauty that transcends the transient and captures the eternal.
While there’s much more to my story, I’m eager to share it with you in a more personal setting. Let’s connect and exchange stories—I can’t wait to learn about yours.
