“I’m frequently asked, “How do you create such stunning images?” My answer: “It is easy when you are on your right path, doing what you are meant to be doing, and loving what you do.” Photography wasn’t the first career choice for me, only because life’s circumstances at that time. I was born in Petropolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My passion for photography began at the early age of fourteen when I was introduced to photography through a seven day workshop hosted by Kodak; I continued to learn and enhance my skills through personal travels, family events, and practice. I graduated from Liceu de Petropolis (Brazil), in 1987 with a degree in Accounting. I worked for 12 years as an executive assistant for a Brazilian retail company. In 2000, I moved to Orlando, FL and lived there until I moved to Tampa in 2008. Was only then when I finally decided to take the path of a professional photographer. I knew I still had a lot to learn and conquer about the business itself, but I also have always been determined and a believer that we should follow what makes us happy and whole.
I’ve spent a good amount of time learning and enhancing my skills. In the process of starting my own business, I became a web designer, graphic designer, seo expert, marketing guru, art director and costumer service representative. I’m sure, I’m not an exception. That is the reality for any small business owner out there. But when your business depends on your creativity, it can become a challenge. In those moments of pressure, I just refocus on what matters and everything falls in to place. I’m doing what a love for a living. There are a few out there that can say that. And I’m so grateful for it.
I look forward to the opportunity of capturing the best memories of your life.
Words aren’t enough,let me tell your story through my lenses.
Can’t wait to hear from you! Lis”
