About me

I’m a Beauty and product photographer based in Paris (Île-de-France). I was born in colorful and culturally diverse Guatemala. I discovered my love for portrait photography as a tool for artistic and social expression in 2007 at university.

For several years I worked as an assistant while pursuing a full-time career in marketing and advertising. In 2015, I took a leap of faith to change my career path and pursue full-time my passion for photography. Since then, I have worked in New York City, London, and Paris in the production and photography industry.

I have worked as a photographer, digital tech, and an assistant for global brands and commercial photographers.

I’m passionate about storytelling through lighting. Photography has allowed me to combine my professional career in advertising with my love for the visual arts.
