All my life, I’ve grown up looking through photos. After immigrating to the United States as a child, photographs were one of the few tangible ways I felt connected to family that remained back home in Brazil. I love how each photo tells a story, and I've always sought to tell the story of my family—and our life together—through images.
That's how I realized how important photography is, and moreover, how a photographer can play such a big role in telling your story. With photography, I've found a way to bottle the emotions and love I don't have words for—I can say everything I want to through the photos I take.
Whenever I pick up my camera, I do so with the intention of helping clients tell the story of their family—and love—through elevated, considered and heartfelt images. It would be my honor to help you do the same.
I'm so happy
I've had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful families through my work, so I thought it only right to introduce you to mine. Say hello to my crazy (adorable, energetic, loving, irreplaceable) crew.
It's me camila
My mini me
My Fur baby
I live for quiet moments with the ones I love. A walk on the beach or a good conversation on the couch will always win me over.
Way to connect
My husband and I have instated Wednesday Date nights in our house and it’s something I look forward to each and every week.
I was born and raised in Brazil before moving to the United States at the age of 11. I go back often to visit my family!
home sweet home
I am a total foodie! I enjoy discovering new places to eat and trying all the delicious food that San Diego has to offer.
A good bite
As a hopeless romantic, I'm always reading a romance novel— give me all the Nicholas Sparks & Colleen Hoover!
That intimate minute after the ceremony when my clients realize that their forever starts now.
There is something magical about escaping to the mountains with your closest friends and family for a few days away. Throw in a cozy fire and hot apple cider and you have a perfect weekend!

ARE WE THE PERFECT FIT?
Dahlias, daisies, heck, even dandelions. I'm a big believer that a few fresh florals in a jar and you can transform any room or occasion into something elegant (or even magical if it happens to be peony season!)

the power of love
I've been lucky enough to experience for myself the transformative power of love—first with my husband, and now with our two girls, Mila and Laura. I consider myself blessed in an infinite number of ways, beginning and ending with the love from my family.
To me, love is something to be celebrated, valued and captured—and I treasure the opportunity to do just that any chance I get. Capturing the love of my little family through photos has brought me so much joy—they were my first subjects and remain my source of inspiration to this day. I love knowing that I'm cementing important memories for us for years to come, and I look forward to doing the same for you and your loved ones.
