Desvísteme | A Lesson in Femininity: a photo essay

arrow

Personal

Nothing makes me feel more comfortable in my skin than clothing it. You can wear just about any fabric on your skin but it doesn’t always feel like you’re you. I learned a few things from my short (more like 7 years) modeling career, one of them being that either the clothes wear the model […]

Personal

Inspired by Jonathan Canlas, I decided to begin a personal project. I spend more time at home than I ever had before since having my daughter. I still love exploring the city and coffeehouse nearby but, it’s just not realistic with a strict nap schedule. So, I decided to stop being sorry for myself and […]

Entre Cisnes y Sonrisas

I marvel at the friendships that have lasted through the test of time (and distance) in my life. Tatiana is one of them. I have photographed this family before, last year to be exact. Actually, last April, I saw her in Puerto Rico and confided in her the suspicion that I may be pregnant. She […]

801 Main/Poor Porker, Lakeland, FL | Florida Film Takeover 12

Personal

I stumbled upon Florida Film Takeover by accident. It had been 7 months since I had incorporated film into my business and I was needing inspiration and interaction with other photographers. Don’t get me wrong—I love what I do but spending hours behind a computer doing taxes, scheduling blog spots and editing is isolating. This […]

  Baby Holstein has not made his/her debut yet and that means I’m still pregnant.I didn’t think I would be here. I felt so sure this baby would come before 2016 ended but alas, here we are. I feel extremely well—no swelling, contractions aren’t unbearable and I can still walk without feeling out of breath; baby is […]

  I hope you don’t mind me unveiling my heart because this post is from the depths of it. 2016 has been a year of transitions for me. I went from being a simple barista to Marketing Lead at Concord Coffee, a local (and amazing!) coffee shop here in Lakeland. Then the Lord opened doors […]
