I specialize in capturing celebratory B'nai Mitzvah, corporate events and headshots, and influential events for political candidates and companies.
Born in Peru, and now based in Washington, D.C., I love traveling and dining at every oyster bar along the way. I can’t wait to team up with you and capture your personal piece of history.

Whether you’re in a corporate office or work a in a creative job, there are so many reasons why a professional photo is important! Photographs grab people’s attention and can convey a message quickly. Let me share with you my top three reasons on why you need one!
Job hunting & recruiting
A lot of professionals are on LinkedIn. It is used to keep others posted on your current job status and for looking at peer statuses. I’ve been told that if you’re not getting messages from recruiters, then you’re LinkedIn is not serving its purpose. This means that keeping your LinkedIn updated is key! If you want to show a recruiter or a future employee, that you’re serious and experienced, then your photo should show that too. And no, that photo that you cropped your friend out of does not do!
Looking the part
When I was a Girl Scout, one of the things I remember my troop leader saying was, “Do it with confidence and no one will question you.” We’ve all seen that person walk into the room and you know they’re important because they look important. You want to be that person and look important online before people actually see you.
Keep your audience in mind
Environmental photos give you a sense of the type of work that a person does and also adds personality. Let’s take a chef for example. We’re going to want to photograph them in a kitchen with their chef’s coat. If we have a CEO of a corporate company, we’re probably going for suits and perhaps a much conservative studio background. It all depends on what you want to convey to your audience.
Here are some of my recent clients who have taken the steps to getting a headshot.
