born in puerto rico. raised in new jersey. currently living in austin, texas.
i've always enjoyed capturing memories + taking pictures, but i didn't discover that i had a real knack for it until my mid-twenties. i am completely self-taught and deeply enjoy sharing the world from my perspective, through my lens. my hope is to capture what's raw, real, and to preserve time - so that someday you are able to reflect on a truly authentic memory.
in 2010, i started my own photography business called eloquently so photography. starting my own business has allowed me to photograph weddings, engagement shoots, family sessions, senior portraits, and more! eventually, i decided to let go of the fancy business name because it didn't feel right anymore. i grew out of it and wanted to make sure my work represented who i am.
today, i’m happily photographing people in a lifestyle setting capturing honest smiles and candid profiles. i’m grateful for the people that i’m able to meet through my work. i’m inspired by who they are and the courageous stories they have to tell.
i’m an enneagram 4 and an INFJ. i live in north austin with my butter half, hailey, and our cuddly shih tzu’s, bella & boudreaux. i spend most of my free time listening to podcasts (TTFA is currently one of my faves), looking for the best queso in austin (so far, Torchy’s is the winner), volunteering when I can with the Pablove Foundation’s Shutterbugs program, and rocking out to 90s jams at karaoke. when i'm not behind the screen editing photos, i work as a sales enablement senior program manager at Bazaarvoice.
i look forward to meeting you and learning more about your vision.
let’s create some magic together :)
