Mariana Jordao

I always liked arts, I always liked crafts (I come from a family of artisans), I always liked music. I always liked to create. But I carried with me the story of believing that I needed to choose a traditional career to follow, so I graduated from Biochemistry Pharmacy. What I tried to leave aside, to follow my first training course, always spoke louder in my heart. And I always had the feeling that I was missing something, something that could put me in flux, something that, when I was doing it, I did not even notice the passing of the minutes, the hours, the days ...
Parallel to the profession, I developed a brand of accessories and created, created a lot, for many years. I went to study photography just to take pictures of my pieces and discovered a lovely universe! Not accessories, but this art of drawing with the light. In 2013 a photographer friend lent me a book about lighting and since then, I have never stopped studying. In 2014 I won my first camera, in 2015 I photographed my first event: the baptism of the baby that made me realize that I had found my way. Photographing families is my way, it's my journey. Whether it's the days of partying, whether it's the day-to-day life and its charms, family photography and for families is what I do.
If my way of seeing life is enough to attract your heart, welcome to my universe, my story and my photography.
