Our greatest battle is to become ourselves while others may push against us becoming who we truly are. There’s a lot of resistance to be fully present when working on something you love. I find that the best thing to do is to pray or meditate; this will help you get into the zone of creating something new whether it’s within writing, modeling, photography. Inspiration will come but it actually starts with our humbleness taking the space of our ego. In order to combat the fear to create You have to realize that you come from a higher source and in order to do what you love or what you were meant to do you will need to surrender and be humble. Like TD Jakes said “ We were created by our creator to be creative.” Once you rise to the level of losing yourself in yourself with good habits to create a flow of work you will feel connected to your source and do great things for people all over. Such as Steven Pressfield said, “… the difference between a Pro and an Amateur is that the Amateur plays for fun but the Pro plays for keeps. Let’s make the switch and change our habits to manifest into more creative and present beings and commit full time to our gifts and talents. So Stop thinking about you and being materialistic and instead think of all of us as united and offer your art as a gift!
Let’s start strategizing our new year right. What is One Thing that you are grateful to go through last year and one thing that you want to Accomplish this year? For me the One thing I’m grateful for is the blessings and the trials that last year gifted me because that led me to continue to strive for my passion that lies in compassion towards others. My wish this year is that we may all continue to love ourselves and give space to ourselves so that we can do better in the world we live in no matter our shape, color, creed, etc!
So Let’s continue to Be different and show LOVE to our bodies!
This year is another chance for you to join me in doing just that in a few opportunities towards self-care and self-love; from our Annual Boudoir Marathon happening at the end of the month both in DC and in Baltimore as well as our Body Lovin’ Workshops happening in the spring. Join me in living our best life this year. I want to continue to fight for our freedom to love, to be in control and live a happy life and I promise to you that you will get an incredible value for your investment on yourself when you book STUDIO PRI for any occasion.
Keeping an Open mind always made sense to me because I always saw potential in people and situations that felt foreign; from making new friends thriving in whatever they were up to to trying out a new adventure in a strange land. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m an immigrant women but Whatever the final case may be I learned more about me and others and compassion played a huge role in it all. I’m here to say that I hope we may all go forth in the new year with open hearts to do better and connect with good people and do good things. Let’s continue to educate each other by sharing our stories, ideas and hopes for a better tomorrow. Yes this may seem like a simple plan but why don’t we start somewhere all over again and what better way then with being a descent human being. Who’s with me?

After many years of struggling in lIFE’s Social Concepts, following trajectory thoughts and actions relating to self doubt - I had a break down. Yes, me a naturally happy go lucky girl Getter. But many issues that I hadn’t dealt with from my past made me feel like my validation was weak in root.
But by the grace of God I was blessed to have some good friends and family plant a seed in me. This seed blossomed beautiful truths but The most valuable Truth that I will share with you today is that the ultimate thing you can do for yourself is to find self-love within yourself and commit to things that nurtures you in real ways.
My daily routine changed from waking up and going straight to my computer or phone to waking up slowly and taking long breaths, kissing and hugging my family, singing aloud, practicing in being present and saying many affirmations to myself in the bathroom mirror. And yes It was super awkward in the beginning talking to myself and saying “I love You” looking into mine own eyes while both my hands covered my heart but it transformed me little by little to be more free and more in love with me and my surroundings.
Now I am free of bad vibes most days, no longer producing just to produce, giving presence and love to causes and people I care for & I’m grateful that Because of this knowledge this gift I’m finally able to truly live my best life with no regrets. This feeling is so freaking Amazing that I want to share it with the world and help others heal in a safe space that uplifts and promotes self care. This is my beautiful truth!
I am happy to start this rejuvenating journey into nude photography again…it’s been almost a decade. And I'm so blessed to have Lu grace my camera on an early summer's morning at the creek. I learned through this process that letting go of fear is the best thing you can do for yourself. And letting go of whatever that doesn't serve your good nature is so ideal. So let's not be afraid of who we truly are and love ourselves fully because life is short and we should live it up! Get in touch with me if you are ready to live a little bit outside your comfort zone because you can be even more then who you think you are now.

I love meeting people through my work. An immense thrill rushes over my body when I'm behind my lens and I see them trusting me through body language to capture their true self. With that trust I'm able to tap into all my knowledge, inspiration, compassion and strength and develop some stunning images. The overall experience from my vibe to my art resinates with these clients who I call my tribe. When they finally see the gallery they're not the only ones loving the moment because I'm also on the other side amazed and taken by the fact that I do this for a living. My passion captivates them. And for me as a female photographer there isn't a better way to show a women, transgender, gay or whatever they want or don't want to label themselves these days that they are WORTHY TO BE LOVED. And I hope to continue to do this work of love in all of my services from Boudoir to Portraiture and beyond.
Here are some of my favorite photographs I've captured of my darling Joanna Cifredo who's an activist but also a Transgender Boriqua Queen. A Complete and Beautiful being in every way. Listen to her and her friend Rebecca Kling's podcast : Trans Specific Podcast

Who Wants to Face Today with some Radical Love Movement Called Forgiveness!???
Forgiveness is The Best Self-Care
Stop putting all your energy into a typical commercialized Holiday and Start showing yourself real LOVE & SELF-CARE by practicing FORGIVENESS this Valentines. I know it's easier said then done, and yes I find myself lingering in victimhood at times, but why live this way? Putting forgiveness into practice will help you like it helped me to be at peace and embrace your true self. I forgave a couple of people including myself already this week for a ton of stuff because I was able to tap into my soul and let go of my ego and I found myself feeling more in love with life. I Guarantee you will feel So FLY after so Trust me & TRY IT! To help you Please check out these easy to do steps that I got from reading Girlboss' Jessica Lanyadoo if you are ready to live the BEST LIFE!
- Make a list of every person that you have resentment towards. From the big ones—heartbreaks and traumas—down to the little, petty stuff (i.e. your friend still hasn’t given you credit on social media postings for photos you took .)
- Once this is done, go through each name and breathe. Stay present with the feels that you have about them.
- Then, forgive them. When you can’t forgive them, forgive yourself.
Studio PRI recognizes that the idea of having photos taken of you in your underwear in an unfamiliar place can make even the bravest women a little hesitant. And our goal is to always give the safest place for our client to self - express. Their comfort is our top priority. So if she/he wants to do a boudoir session at home instead of the studio or hotel we gladly set up shop (studio) there! We are down for whatever that feels right. It's still an endless amount of fun. Believe me!
Check out gorgeous Jen! Also, special thanks to Thais Pereira for hair and makeup xoxo
