FAMILY PORTRAITS 2022
As the pandemic hit and the world was forced into isolation, I realized the true importance of friends and family. However, simply vowing to prioritize these relationships wasn't enough for me, I wanted to create a safe and intimate space for my loved ones to connect while also capturing these moments on film.
So, with the help of photographer César Buitrago, I started my annual Family Portraits Series, featuring some of the closest and most inspiring creatives in my community, naturally with a bit of my jewelry sprinkled in.
Each subject in the series possesses a unique energy that I am naturally drawn to, and this year's lineup features a special group of individuals who often get overlooked: the talent behind the talent.
