After meeting the love of my life in 2008, I made the hard decision of leaving behind my life in the Dominican Republic, family and friends, to move to a very different country in Europe, The Netherlands. I had to start over, so I thought why don’t I make my hobby my job? My first step was to learn the Dutch language, then find a job to start networking and to make new friends.
After two years of integration, I started my studies in professional photography at the Fotovakschool in Rotterdam. Another three years later and countless pictures taken everywhere to develop my talent, I can finally say that I have become a professional. Yeahhh, finally!!!
Without the support of my lovely husband and my mother in law, I don’t think this would have been possible at this point. For the first time now after six years of living in this lovely city, I feel really integrated, and why not? I have the most wonderful person as a husband; my son who was living in Santo Domingo now lives with us. I have made many true friends. I have the most amazing job you could ever imagine; it allows me to capture the most important moments of people’s lives with my camera and allows them to cherish them forever. I want to see the love and the gratitude of people through my lens, this is very important for me. It makes me happy and I would like to do this for the rest of my life.
My style is somewhere between Fine art and Documentary photography, I do my utmost to capture real moments with a touch of beauty, I love natural light, details and emotions.
If you love beautiful, spontaneous, timeless images then you’ve come to the right place. I can’t wait to hear about your big day!
