Meet the photographer

Photo by Esteban Hernandez

I was born in Colombia but I have lived more than half of my life in the United States. Got to spend a few years moving around, ending up in Miami, where I lived for 9 years before moving to Brooklyn. I now spend my days between Florida, New York and wherever my work takes me. I graduated with a B.A. degree in Advertising but somewhere between school and life, I fell in love with photography. This background in advertising and design allowed me to transition into photography seamlessly.

Aesthetics and cultivating a style that feels my own are very important to me in my work. I am constantly observing and open to inspiration in my surroundings. I love the beauty of little details and to discover new places or rediscover old ones. I am passionate about telling life and love stories, catching those fleeting moments and details that make people so unique and beautiful. I’m inspired by romance, a good old jazz record and the simple pleasures in life. My photography is uncomplicated, unpretentious and honest. I have a soft spot for photographs that evoke emotion and the in-between moments that make us so human and real. I work with both digital and traditional 35mm/120mm film equipment.

Outside of photography, I’m amazed and infinitely intrigued by nature and I love all things vegan, herbal and wellness related. I graduated with my first 200-hr teacher training license in Yoga and started an herbal body care brand called SAUCA.

I take Photography commissions on different projects both local and involving travel. I also own a Wedding + Portrait Photography studio: BlueSpark Photography. To see more, follow through to see my work and learn about my process and availability here. Find me on Instagram here.
