About this Portrait Photographer

Hi! I am Alma.

Hi!    I am delighted that you are reading my bio and visiting my page.  I hope you are looking photographer that understands that  high quality images of our loved ones, or of ourselves is priceless.   Our business can benefit and our lives celebrated with professional portraits. 

      In my youth I had several loved ones die without leaving  decent quality photos behind.  This influenced me to start carrying a camera  everywhere almost.  I noticed that it became a way I could express creativity, honor my loved ones and also celebrate life!  

       Photography was my first major in college where I worked in a dark room.  It did not end up being my major or first career.  I ended up apprenticing for a master photographer on the beach, John Gregory of Beach Portraits in NC. He sent me back to school to learn photoshop...  Countless hours in workshops and training to keep up with the new trends and gear throughout this past decade brings me to my home of almost 3 years now- Cape Coral, FL.  

    My fabulous people skills, patience, love of new tech and of course passion for photography makes me feel secure that this is my calling.  I love working with amazing clients and delivering portraits of their families that are more than pictures, but rather heirlooms that will be passed on for generations.

     Headshots are my new obsession.  I want all my clients to walk away with the best portrait they have ever had taken of them.  I also want them to achieve their business goals, and know that their success lies in effective branding.  Headshots help you stand out of the crowd  of selfies.  A great one will help you appear both confident and approachable which every ideal client wants to work with.

Our Approach

Camera and Style Talk

I shoot with years of experience and knowledge on how to light, slightly pose and stage a portrait.  Although, I am always learning something new.  I recently attended a Peter Hurley Headshot Intensive. 

I believe my style is a combination of both candid, or lifestyle with some direction given for more flattering poses.

It is always my goal to collaborate with  my clients.  When we work together while planning the session, and during the session, then this is when the magic happens!

I shoot with Nikon Full Frame equipment. My  favorite body is the D750 and my favorite lens is the 85mm 1.2.  I bring back up camera body and lenses to each session.

 Lastly, I do all my own editing in Lightroom and Photoshop.  I believe the post processing, or editing is as important as the shooting for my family sessions. I have spent years developing and mastering this skill. All my skills and training and big bubbly personality are reserved for clients around Southwest Florida, including:  Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captiva, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, Bonita Springs, Estero, North Naples, Naples.
