At some point in life we all experience departure as part of the process of growing up.
I left Cuba, my home country in 2007. I carried only one suitcase with few clothing items, books and all the pictures that could fit.
Whenever I am asked why I chose photography the answer seems to reflect more on the belief that images are related to all we do and who we are.
Thinking about it, the power of what we see is so great that is connected to deep emotions and memories. An image can bring a person to the feeling of a single moment and is able to stop time.
Telling a story without words is an inexplicable feeling of living in the present moment. The person stands in front of the camera, and everything turns into a fun and intimate encounter between longtime friends.
My purpose when creating a story with the camera is to do it in a way that the person feels at ease. A portrait is an expression of inner beauty and strength; therefore I strive to make it enjoyable.
My motto is “Live the image and share yourself with those who are important to you.”
I understand the nature of movement and will guide you to pose in a way that feels natural to your body.
Working with professional Hair & Makeup artists is essential to what we do; their understanding of a person’s unique features will enhance your natural beauty.
