Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born in Uruguay, my parents moved my family here to provide a better life as we didn't have much in our country.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I was studying psychology, pregnant with my first born, prepping to apply for a PhD program. At the time I thought since my parents sacrificed everything to get me here that I should get the highest degree. I was unhappy in the research field and found a photography course online. I purchased it, and fell in love right away. Gave up the PhD for photography and have never been happier. It is true what they say, when you find what you love it doesn't feel like work. I love running my own business. I've been so lit up by this industry.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

That I make that awkward feeling that you get when you're in front of the camera disappear. The sessions are fun, lighthearted and intentional.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Don't ever stop learning and growing as a person.

What is your favorite book?

Girl Stop Apologizing

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

Knowing my strengths and outsourcing my weaknesses which allows me to empower other female businesses. Realizing you do not have to do all of the things has been a game changer!

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying in your career or business?

I've recently been asked to coach a client and I knew I wanted to eventually, just realized you don't always have to wait until the timing is ``perfect``.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

JUMP IN! It'll never be perfect, work through your mistakes and jump in before you're ``ready``.

How do you enjoy your free time?

Taking care of my family, learning something new every day.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I gave up years of prepping for a PhD for this new found dream.
