Manifesto

 

All I wish for my photographs to do, is hold still a moment in time. I want to create something for you that has depth and energy. I want to ditch the idea of an overly posed and static photograph and create art that is a reflection of who you really are.

More About Me

 

People often ask me if I was a military kid. The truth is, I was just fortunate enough to have parents with a big appetite for adventure. I grew up in a very nomadic lifestyle. Every couple of years or so we would pack up our belongings and move on to the next city, the next country, or sometimes the next continent. I freakin loved every minute of it and would not be who I am today without those diverse experiences.

Looking back now, it makes sense why two of the most important things in my life are: Family and Photographs. Moving around, I could always count on my family to be there for me while I learned new languages and met new friends.
My dad was, and still is, the family photographer in our lives. I could not be more grateful for that. Because we moved so often, we packed light, leading to a lot of things getting left behind. I can remember more than a few times when we had to say goodbye to a beloved toy. But for all the things we lost along the way, my mother made it a point to preserve our photographs. For us these stacks of printed photographs are memories we can now hold, laugh at, and relive cherished memories.

Tidbits

I am mother to a beautiful little baby boy. Our adventures together are only just beginning and I'm having so much fun watching this cheeky boy grow into his own person.

I am crazy into Martial Arts. I am currently a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and first degree black belt in Aikido. I’m super friendly though I promise. I’m a lover at heart. <3

I was born in Frankfurt , Germany to a Brazilian mother and a Austrian father. We spent most of our lives nomadically moving all around Europe, Brazil, and the U.S.
Spontaneity for adventure is my comfort zone.

I love going backpacking. My husband and I try to go on one or two big trips every year and go sporadically on weekend trips. Not going to lie, one of my favorite parts about our trips is eating the delicious meals I planned out for us!

We have a super awesomely goofy Great Dane named Goose. And even though this wasn’t really planned out, he completes our abnormally tall family. We would have suited well to the intro scene of 101 Dalmatians where the owner’s and dogs are perfect matches. :)

I have a love affair with black and white photographs. I developed my own for a while and dream to one day have a darkroom I can call home. This is what I hope to do when I'm old and retired and living in my cabin in the woods.
