Hey! It’s me, Lourdes. My roots where planted in a small country town in IL, my branches have grown on the west coast, east coast and across the sea in Hawaii, and Japan. I appreciate the simple life, love hiking, and being surrounded by nature. I think much of that comes from being surrounded by corn fields, and wooded areas for miles and miles. If you like that enneagram lingo, Im a 4, but in that I am also a pretty funny gal! I jokingly tell people I measure my friends by the laughter shared, but it’s kind of true. The quickest way to my heart is just that…laughter.
When I was 20, I signed my life away to Uncle Sam, and served in the Marine Corps for 4 years. With that I had learned so much.
While school is in session from Sept-April I won’t be doing as much photography, because Im currently attending CU Boulder for Photo Journalism.
I believe that if you’re going to something you have to go all in. So I guess that’s kind of how my photography journey began. I told myself I’m going to be a photographer, and failing wasn’t an option, and 4 years later I still haven’t put my camera down.
I truly believe that there is beauty in EVERY THING… every person, every place, and every chapter, and with that, I have learned to always search for it. I cannot wait to photograph the beauty of your family!
