Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween has always been my favorite Holiday. I always love to create new images with my kids. This year, I challenged myself to create a couple of new images without having to spend money. I got my daughter to wear a dress she got last year, and with the magic of Photoshop, I transformed it…

Me, Myself and Self-Portraiture.

Me, Myself and Self-Portraiture.

 This post is not technical, because, to be honest, I’m not a technical person. My art is driven by heart. Of course, I had to learn a few things here and there to be able to bring my vision to life, but technical conversations often put me to sleep. I rather have deep emotional ones….

Herbie and my Little girl.

Herbie and my Little girl.

2016 left most of us emotionally exhausted… To me, there’s not better medicine than letting my creative juices play and and take over time. That’s what I did yesterday. I grew up in a family where New Year’s Eve was the biggest event of the year. Sadly, we are spread all over the world and…

BMX boys.

BMX boys.

About a month ago, I had the chance to photograph these two super talented boys, Cesar Montes de Oca and Jesus Montes de Oca. They both are BMX super stars. They are doing a fantastic job representing the State of Florida and  they are on their way to compete on the World Championship next year….

Bad Santa.

Bad Santa.

Wha does a photographer do when she’s alone at home, bored and she finds a Santa Suit? Well, she puts the suit on and tries to get into character… and thinks, What do we know about this Santa guy? Works one day a year, spends the rest of the year judging you… YOU GET COAL!…

The Polar Express

The Polar Express

Holidays are about being with love ones. I lost my best friend, the love of my life and the father of my daughter this year. I was terrified of facing these few days alone with my kids. But then I thought, it’s really up to me how they get to experience the holidays, and this year…

The Edge Effect.

The Edge Effect.

This has to be one of my favorite shoots to date.  What couldn’t go wrong with a shoot with 5 talented guys with that sing like angels, a super fantastic make up and hair artist and a fabulous assistant? NOTHING! These guys were a pleasure to work with, and they even sang for us during…

Casey Conroy

Casey Conroy

I recently had the pleasure to do promotional and album work for the super talented 18 years old singer songwriter Casey Conroy. This girl has been performing all around Central Florida since she was 14 years old. Her voice is so mellow, her sound is so new and refreshing.  You probably have seen her performing…

My first Magazine Article.

My first Magazine Article.

About 5 years ago when I fell in love with photography, I started searching online finding ways of learning everything I needed to become a photographer. That’s when I stumbled upon, at the time called, Kelby Training.  Without even thinking twice, I got a membership and sat for hours and hours watching tutorials by Scott…

Ivette and Abel.

Ivette and Abel.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to photograph a sweet couple, Abel and Ivette, they are expecting their first baby!. I’ve known Abel for a while, have photographed his band a couple of times, and have been following Ivette’s ventures on social media for a while. They told me they wanted something…

‘Till Death Do Us Apart.

‘Till Death Do Us Apart.

In the 4 years I’ve been doing photography I’ve always wanted to do a Sugar Skull portrait but somehow I always put it away or got to busy or simply forgot. So this year as soon as October started, I got to it. My creative process sometimes can turn into a love and hate relationship….

For all the moms out there.

For all the moms out there.

I have written this post and deleted it a million times. Sometimes it’s hard for me to get the message out. Maybe I’m just not good with words and should stay away from the keyboard and just post my pictures with a little tiny note. I always worry if I’m sharing too much, if people…

My Autism SuperHero.

My Autism SuperHero.

This is our autism story. I truly believe my boy  is my soulmate. My boy came to my life after a complicated pregnancy. I was in bed rest for most part of my pregnancy. Every single time I went to the doctor for a checkup something new would come up, and I would leave the the room…

It feels like it’s always raining on me.

It feels like it’s always raining on me.

I started the making of this picture yesterday but got short of time and craft supplies and I wasn’t in the mood of posting just a snap shot. I preferred to wait and finish this and try to do two pictures today (which I’m still planning to do). If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook,…

Am I getting old?

Am I getting old?

This has to be the most fun I’ve ever had retouching a picture. I spent the whole day laughing as I was drawing wrinkles on my face. I may even say it’s one of the images I’ve learned the most. I watched a bunch of tutorials on youtube and then went ahead and tried what…

Honey, I ate the kids!

Honey, I ate the kids!

While having coffee this morning I told my baby daddy all about the concept of this picture. I’ve been planning this shot for a while but my biggest concern was getting my angles right for the composite. Well, that’s like a party invitation for a meticulous engineer. I wasn’t finished talking when he took a…

Fire Mohawk.

Fire Mohawk.

To explain how this shot came together I have to go back a couple of weeks when I was planning to start this 365 project. I knew from the very beginning I couldn’t rely on inspiration. It’s silly to think that every morning a pink unicorn would slide down a rainbow straight to my bedroom…

Thank you!

Thank you!

Yesterday was a great day. I was honored to be Scott Kelby’s guest blogger, which was on my bucket list for a long time. I learnt how to use my camera, my lights and photoshop on KelbyOne and being featured on Scott page along with so many fantastic photographers and trainers was unreal.   The…

Anna

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to photograph one of my favorite photographers, Anna Nguyen from Zee Anna Photography. I was so excited when she contacted me to book her session and told me she just wanted to be Gilmar’d (whatever that means ;))  before I moved to Charlotte. As always I…

Maggie.

A couple of weeks ago I got together once again with Valeria Angelino and Maggie Riann for another creative shoot.  This may be my favorite so far. I’m really going to miss these two girls when I move to Charlotte next month. It’s so fullfilling when you work with a perfect team. I know, with…

Guess who’s having a baby!

Once again I went on front of my the camera, this time to announce my pregnancy. I cannot explain how happy and excited I am! This may be only the first Preggo selfie you will see here. Have a happy Monday!

Once again a HUGE thanks to Valeria Angelino for the fantastic work on Hair and make up. Working with her…

Primavera.

Primavera.

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming. Pablo Neruda. We are always looking for a new beginning, for a spring in our lives when the flowers start to bloom and our hearts start to feel warmer. I have been living in winter for a while followed by shorts springs…

My Valentines.

My Valentines.

It has been slow here on the blog in the last couple of months. I started 2014 with lot of resolutions as we all do every year but my body has been playing tricks on me and I haven’t been feeling good at all. I’m still around, I’m still working but I didn’t have the…

Vintage Picnic.

Vintage Picnic.

A couple of weeks ago I got together with a fantastic group of local people for a collaboration shoot. It was a chilly Sunday morning, weather really took us by surprise but we did have a blast joking about it and warming up in the sun between frames. Christine Colbourne and I wanted to work…

Patty and Nicole.

Patty and Nicole.

Last Thursday I had a shoot with my gorgeous friend Patty, she’s 5 months pregnant and she’s having a girl. The first thing that came to my mind when I was planning the shoot was a palette of soft muted colors so I went to my big stock of fabrics (I think I’m becoming a…

More from Nick’s mma session.

I can’t even start to describe how fun was working with these shots, time consuming, hours and hours of post production but it was a blast. I think I’m hooked on composites. Nick was a fantastic subject to photograph I hope he enjoyed the shoot and like the pics as much as I do.

Last week I received a call from Abel Aponte, bass player of the Orlando based rock/pop band Empire Theory to invite me to shoot their show last night in House Of Blues.  They did put up an amazing show. If you haven’t checked their music yet go visit their website and their effort to make the…
