Little Beria | Boston Creative Photography

I love looking thru old pictures and this morning I came across these two. Of course I had to share! This is me around 3 or 4 years old… when I was a flowergirl in my uncle’s wedding. The little rounded belly explains why I have difficulties buttoning Joy’s pants. She has exactly the same body shape! It’s family heritage! The picture on the right is a school portrait setup for Father’s day. So cute and so simple. Brings a smile to my face, but what’s up with my hair so short?:(Awwww the big cheeks! I just want to “squeeze myself”! Well, what matters is that pictures brings us back in to moments we cherish. This is for me, priceless.

Amo ver fotos antigas e hoje de manhã achei essas daqui. Claro que eu tinha que compartilhar! Essa sou eu com mais ou menos 3 ou 4 anos… Quando fui daminha do casamento do meu tio. A barriga redondinha explica porque tenho dificuldades abotoando as calças da Joy. Ela tem exatamente o mesmo corpinho que eu. Deve ser hereditario! A foto da esquerda é na escola, do Dia dos Pais. Bonitinho e Simples. Me faz sorrir, mas, qual a razão do meu cabelo tão curtinho?  E as bochechonas! Quero dar um aperto em mim mesma! Bem, o que importa é que fotografias nos levam de volta a momentos que a gente guarda com carinho. Isso pra mim não tem preço.

Que gracinha, parece a Joy, um pouquinho mais fofinha rsrs, cute.

Acho que nunca tinha visto essas fotos suas. Ri um monte!! Vc teve a mesma idéia que eu; desde semana passada tava a fim de escanear umas fotos velhas e colocar no orkut. Depois te mando mais umas fotos velhas. Quando li agora o texto, só vi que tinha em português depois de ter lido tudo em inglês! Foi frustrante.. Mas enfim, seu blog é muito legal!

Ana Julia | Miracle Baby | Boston Creative Photography

Joy thinks this baby on my computer screen is a doll. She’s in love with her, and has asked me if we could bring her home for us to have. I don’t blame her. Ana Julia is a beautiful baby, who I was happy to photograph at 1 month old, and again last week, now with 5 months and cutter than ever!

She’s a miracle baby. Her mommy Juliana was admitted several times at a Boston hospital while pregnant and needed special care. We saw Ju losing lots of weight and weakness struck her body. Big daddy Rodrigo, held it strong for his girls; but I’m sure it was hard. What we all know now is that the most important care was coming from heaven. From a God that never leaves us fighting alone. Ana Julia and her smile is a proof that miracles happen.

Next Spring I will be meeting them again for a happy session – daddy will be in this time! – and  Ju and Rodrigo will have an oportunity to share a little bit more of their story here in the blog. Until then, I want to share some of the cuteness.

Ivna & Vinny | Engagement Pictures | Boston Creative Lifestyle Photographer

Overslept this morning. Was then late for a doctor’s appointment; didn’t have time for breakfast or my devotional reading. Worst of all, missed manicure, what I take as t-r-a-g-e-d-y. No red nails this week!

Hiding my hands behind the wheels, I left home in a rush to only notice how beautiful the day was when I HAD to stop at a red light. It was a bright day, no gloves needed, and I couldn’t resist to roll down the window. There it was, all I needed; fresh air.  The “smell” of Spring that changed my mood. I’ll enjoy the day and cherish my HOPE.

When I met Ivna & Vinicius for photographs something similar happened. A gray cold winter morning; snow in the ground. But the weather didn’t affect the hope that those “two love birds” had to make it happen. They arrived for their engagement session with the biggest smile, a suitcase full of clothes – that she later confessed it was all hers -, and a wish to beautifully show their affection. It warmed my heart and very quick made my frozen fingers enjoy the shutter again. Let’s do it, I said.

Sweet! Because the location we chose was as cool as I could ask. Bricks, metal, car junk yard. A place there I know from driving by each Sunday in my way to church. Crazy block that someone else could label “abandoned“; but me, “potential“. You just have to see it thru my lens.

Alessandra & Jeremias | LOVELY Session | Boston Creative Lifestyle Photographer

They met through a common friend when she was in charge of making reservations for a trip to a city where they would later fall in love. She wrote down his name: Jeremias. He didn’t write anything but remembered hers clearly: Alessandra, which it’s the italian feminine form of alexander – “protector of mankind”. Wow, who doesn’t like a protector? That could be the secret identity for his “Wonder Woman”. It was a fit.

One year of dating, seven years into marriage, and lots of travel later, she feels “protected by him”, and they keep going strong supporting each other dreams. Like best friends they are, a favorite date night includes watching movies together with a big bucket of buttered popcorn or walking together hand-in-hand to the church where they share the same faith. Jeremias’s name could not have a better meaning: “sent by God”. Again, it was a match made in heaven.

Ale e Jeremias, thank you for allowing me to photograph such a beautiful love and have memories of an afternoon of rich orange tones and an incredible sunset. Although we had the pictures done few months ago, we could not ask for a more appropriate week to display it than this Valentine’s week.

May you cherish these images forever. Be Blessed!

Back blogging! What a blessing!

I love to write.

Even thou Im not the best writer, I still love writing. I use written words much better than spoken ones; and sometimes I even make them up. I’d be able to have notes, verses and quotes all over my house. I’m always scribbling. Because I talk so much and  yeah – so fast – writing gives me a certain sense of “slow motion”  and a time to stop every day and be myself, to talk about my journey, family and friends to remember it all. Also, to talk about Jesus because I want you to know about His love. Finally, to post some pictures and talk about my work and the incredible stories attached to it.

Blogging is not a new thing for me, I did it before. I wrote often and I cherished it so much. Although I say I do it for myself, it was always good to see sweet comments, people visiting and liking it. Then I had a baby girl and blogged less and less until the break between posts was so long that I was ashamed to just come back. I still enjoy reading it. So many memories. Amazing how it brings me back in time.

Writing became even more important for me after an event last year. It literally healed me.

I was home and the next minute woke up in a hospital bed. The doctor asked if I could talk to him. I understood but didn’t answer. My pastor prayed and asked if I could say Amen with him. I wanted but to I could not. No sound coming out of my mouth. I was in shock. That moment Jesus gave me the strength to point to a piece of paper in which I wrote “Of course I can talk!” For almost a week that was how I did it. The hospital ran out of yellow note pads, but I learned the value of communication, and started the habit of writing notes to my loved ones. I still do it to my husband every night as I could not talk and had to tell him how I was doing. No matter what, where, if he didn’t lower the toilet seat or forgot our anniversary. But God restored my voice. He knew my 2 year old could not read.:)

I was then hungry to be blogging. Such a challenge. And the thought of having two different blogs – a personal and a professional one –  still held me up for a couple months. Not only would I go crazy, but it was impossible to separate. Then I took a deep breath, figured out that I’m blessed to do a work that is a reflection of me, and the wise thing to do was to just have one. That’s why Im so excited to be back.

What I put on “paper” are notes to myself. I read it all back and it’s a reminder of Joy, growth and blessings. Reminder that “Life is Good”, that a smile changes lives, hugs are free; a picture is worth a thousand words, and that after every storm the sky is blue. These are notes that reminds me the glory of the Lord, how He saved me and loves me. Reminds me that all my inspiration are whispers of my “Deus Designer”. To Him be the glory.

This first post is long, I know. But if you a reading this and never met me – “Hi!” – I want to give you an idea of the person behind the words. A girl that is a mommy and a wife. A Designer who is also a Photographer. A brazilian that thinks in english. A person that cannot be any of this without Jesus.

“Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.” (Isaiah 64:4)

Oh Happy Day.

Amiga! Im soo Proud of you! You are right about memories, those precious moments that will never come back, and i am proud to say that you are part of my history;
When i think back and i go down memory land, i laugh at my self and by myself,
When you use to drive your green Dodge Neon, lol
When i carried you from the train station to your class in a 15 degrees weather,
When me and Tia Amelia played a prank on you on April’s fool, lol
And one of my favorite’s: when Wagner proposed to you….(i waaas so happy, it looked like i was getting engaged!!)
So, with all these and many more… i will always cherish our friendship and love.
I am really proud of you for laying down your talents before God and letting him be the center of your life!!
Carpe Dien!!!
