Family Photos in Greenwhich Village, New York

Photographing kids takes patience—lots of it and love. At the age of 2, they are impatient. They just want to explore the world around them, to run, to touch, to experience, to feel, to be free. They don’t allow boredom. And they grow up so fast—each moment of their childhood is priceless.

Being part of these moments is priceless. That’s the most valuable gift of being a photographer. Usually my sessions with family and kids take a bit longer—around 2 hours. But I let them feel free—to be themselves. I don’t pose, I don’t aim for the perfect background, the perfect posture, the perfect smile. I aim for the moment; for capturing the essence of each one of them. The singularity of each photo, each hug, each smile, each spontaneous moment—that’s priceless.

Specially in these days, we are continuously seeking perfection—the best make up, the straight hair, the best pose to slim the face, hips, tricks to hide singularities—we are constantly loosing the chance to be ourselves. For me, the role of photography is not capturing perfection, but the moment that is perfect on their heart.

Spring time! Maternity Photoshoot in Central Park!

Yes, I absolutely love photographing in Central Park! What else I could say—it’s always a stunning background!

What I most love about my work is connecting with people, with their stories—capturing such beautiful time of their lives. Yes, I’m Brazilian, meaning I’m emotional! I guess that’s why I related to photography my hole life! As I always say, they are not just clients, they are marvellous people that Universe gifted me.

It was such a pleasure meeting this couple from Jordan, expecting their first little one! Sending lots of love to you and wishing this little pumpkin all the happiness!

Maternity Photoshoot in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

Usually the big island, Manhattan, gets the whole attention when talking about photoshoots. But as a Brooklyn person, I must say there’re so many stunning and charming streets around Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill—a perfect scenario for a chill and spontaneous photoshoot.

Walking along Congress Street, we found this small park, Cobble Hill, with gorgeous and romantic townhouses in the background—just in time for spring! I love combining indoor and outdoor photoshoots, so we can get a broad range of photos, from a more intimate scenario to a walk around the neighbourhood with all the spring vibe!

Next time, when scouting for places for your maternity photoshoot, go check around Bergen St, Pacific St and Cobble Hill Park! You won’t regret!
