— Making of Studio PRI
It all started when…
While growing up as a multi-cultural immigrant girl Priscilla felt a strong a yearning to help and connect with people and found her way to do so while documenting family and friends and even strangers walking in the street - She found self-expression through still and motion pictures.She dreamt of helping Women of All Roles, Shapes, Colors and Sizes by reaching out to people through art so they can find their true self nestled in her art medium, her truth. Finding herself in others was her Ah-ha moment!
She opened Studio PRI's virtual door's in 2009 where she was able to mix all that she's passionate about; from the opportunity to photograph so many interesting individuals and creating eye catching stills and motion pictures with her team to uplifting students exploring their voice with artistic freedom in a safe space.
Today her dream still thrives. We gained a reputation as masters of intimate portrait, event & editorial photography. In addition to winning Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Award in 2017 as well as a 2018 Top Pro Choice at Thumbtack we developed successful body positive campaigns through the years from annual Body Positive Boudoir Marathons to seasonal Body Love Workshops for Women and Femmes creatives. The Success of the Work STUDIO PRI produces is based on our approachable and loving style.And that is why she does the work she does!

I was Born in the sun-kissed city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and my family left our country for a better life when I was only 3 years old. We Arrived in The crunchy Tree Huggin’ town of Takoma Park, Maryland. After a few years of living a privileged life My Parents decided to send my sister and I back to Brazil to study Portuguese and live with relatives to learn other ways of life. That’s where I became fond of Sociology and Women Art & Studies. When I got back All I wanted to do was to document through photo and video Fleeting moments of my family and friends; from Adventures at the beach to music infused slumber parties. Recording became an obsession of mine through out my academic life; from James Hubert Black High School to New School University in NYC where I learned about the business of photography to Back to the DC area Where I obtained A B.F.A. in Fine Art Photography From The Corcoran College of Arts + Design in Washington DC. finally I opened STUDIO PRI as a Portable Portrait Studio in 2009 where I found my happy place.
