Eight years ago I opted for photography as a professional career, after having had a trajectory of much learning in the marketing area in some companies in São Paulo, such as Editora Abril and Adams. The photograph followed in parallel, but personal changes
encouraged me to put it in the foreground.
The birth of Luca, my firstborn, was a watershed in my life and influenced my choices from then on. Being a self-employed professional would allow me to have more control over my schedule - no matter how much a photographer's calendar was filled with appointments at very unconventional times. I took a risk and, with prudence and planning, I built step by step a career that today makes me very proud.
Over time, the arrival of my daughters and my personal development, I started to define a style, acquiring more security and maturing my creative process. I am looking for a light photograph that conveys truth and creates narratives that keep all the feelings and memories of a family.
