This online journal is meant to document bold, beautiful, and liberating moments of my life.

To lead with your heart is to be free in an inhibiting world. 

Be Bold, Beautiful, and Boundless.

Stephanie Pretel

I have always wanted a tropical Latina shoot for my portfolio. Big red lips, big dark hair, caramel skin against a green forest. These images remind me of the times I visited my mother's homeland, Dominican Republic. The light radiating off her skin not only reminds me of what the sun feels like but the warmth of the people as well. 

I shot this with Stephanie Pretel in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
