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.
