I have always loved photography. It was a dream of mine since I was a young girl to travel the world and to be a photographer. As life would have it I had a round about journey to my dream and found that I loved cinematography just as much. I was born and raised in sunny California and have traveled to 41 countries filming and photographing our adventures. Recently we moved to even sunnier Cascais, Portugal. Being a daughter of Portuguese parents I grew up going to Portugal and the Azores for family visits. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would move our family of three 9,000km around the world and start a new life. We could not be happier, and as a photographer/cinimatographer I am like a kid in a candy store! I began with filming weddings with my husband as my partner and absolutely loved it. I love being able to film a once and a lifetime event and create a beautiful mini film for our couples to treasure for a lifetime. After a few years I found myself drawn back to my first love of photography. Being able to freeze a moment in time and to create art is something I adore. The two passions of mine coexist and I can't choose one over the other. If you like my style and would like to chat send me a message. I would love to hear from you!
