Strong women grow together!
Updated: Mar 10, 2022
It's International Women's Month and I decided that today's blog post I'm gonna share more of my journey towards feminism and women empowerment.
When I first started my business, my main goal was to be an inspiring business woman, to build my brand connected to my truth and values in this life.
I had three beautiful inspiring women that had helped me through this journey and they are my maternal grandmother, my mother, and my younger sister, but I truly recognized myself as an independent and strong woman, when I decided to grow apart from them and move out of Brazil, to pursue something bigger than just conventional life.
"WE AREN'T BORN A WOMAN, WE BECOME A WOMAN."
A lot of things about my personality started to make sense, and I started to feel less lost like I was finally finding my own voice and path to follow.
When I decided to start my photography business, my biggest dream was to work for women and women only. I wanted to tell their stories, give them a safe space where women of all ages have a spotlight to express and be themselves. I believe I'm taking step by step in that direction.
I recently read a phrase in a book that says "we aren't born a woman, we become a woman", and that really got stuck in my head.
I've been connecting with so many powerful and inspiring ladies throughout this journey in the wedding industry, but also in the Milwaukee area. Ladies that see what I share on my social media, admire my work and want to connect and network to create more space for female voices.
Right now my main focus is to photograph weddings, which is something huge because I know the responsibility that I have.
At the end of the day, I'm not only selling a service, but I'm working with other people's dreams, specifically with one of the biggest girls' dreams, the one to become a bride one day.
But, in the last year, I've also had the opportunity to work with so many different women from different backgrounds and industries, that I want to share a bit more here so all of you have a chance to get to know more of the power of women united.
A non-profit organization called HAWA (Hmong American Women Association) that provides shelter and assistance to southeast Asian womxn & queer in Milwaukee, to take part at a jewelry campaign called "Gracefully Bold" by Bellina Caetano to share my thoughts on the meaning of the word Womanhood to me.
I also had a chance to connect with Dona, founder of SHE WOLF MKE, where she teaches women boxing and self-defense techniques, and partners up for future projects with Kyndal J., a singer, songwriter, fashion editor, and creative director here in Milwaukee area.
WOW! So many beautiful opportunities coming to my way since I decided to follow my heart and pursue my dreams to make this world a more equal and safe place for future women generations.
I cannot wait to share more of my work here with you.
