The #Muse that started it All

Bruna Ladeira, my homegirl since forever was there for my first inspiring home made photoshoots and she was one of my muse and she's been with me since my early years starting out as an photo-based artist extending her support and love with anything from late night  talks to test shoots, modeling, intern, parties, photo studio assistance, second shooter, creative direction, PR, auntie to my kids and just a shoulder to cry on ... you name it. I couldn't have done some of these amazing photo-works without  this particular virgo lady. So I just wanted to say OUT LOUD FOR THE WORLD TO KNOW HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE AND LOVE YOU! NO WORDS! And Thank you my for continuing to be by my side through out these 30 plus years of friendship!

Thank you for always inspiring me to do what I love and thank you for always saying Yes to be my on the go MUSE! LOVE YOU and Happiest of Birthdays Nunz

Be The Vixen of Your Dreams

Va-va-voom! Things are heating up here at our studio with this recent seductive boudoir shoot featuring the lovely "DMFK." She rocked a few different looks in this series, one of which is bound to catch your eye. Varying from country boots to Victorian-style corsets and laughing shots to intense gazes, the constant was the exuding sensuality the camera captured. This half-Brazilian half-American babe fell into character and made it all the more exciting to photograph in the bedroom.
