As the mother of two young children, Barbara knows that real life can be messy. But her ability to capture the beauty and tenderness of those very real, very important moments is what makes her work so exceptional. Trained at Brooks Institute of Photography and hailing from a long line of international image makers—her grandfather was a pioneer in aerial and documentary photography in Peru—Barbara's technical mastery of her craft is outshone only by her ability to forge trusting relationships with her clients, allowing them to be their best and most beautiful selves in front of her lens.
Barbara's work can be seen in various publications, including the national bridal magazine The Knot, and popular lifestyle websites Grace Ormonde and Style Me Pretty. Her images have graced the covers of glossies including Coastal Woman Magazine and Wedding Celebrations, and she has been named "one of the industry's best photographers," by Design Aglow, an internationally recognized resource to the trade.
Barbara lives in Ventura with her husband Ramon, and their two children, Sofia and Tiago. When she's not in the studio or on location, she can be found sitting down to tea parties and building fairy kingdoms in the yard.
