Get to know your Instructor:

"Howdy from Texas (or somewhere around the world). My name is Deborah but most friends call me Deb. I was born and raised in Brazil but have been living in the US for the past 20 years.  Ha, now you know where my thick accent in my videos comes from!  LOL

I am a mom to two wonderful tiny humans and am married to a hot superman.  I am passionate about photography and traveling, so being able to teach workshops and speak at conferences around the world makes my job the best one on the planet.  I love meeting new people and learning about their journey.  So, if I am ever around your area hit me up for some coffee (or margaritas!!).

I have been photographing professionally since 2015.  I offer Fine Art Portraits of children, maternity, and families.  Although I love posed images, I can appreciate the importance of candid shoots full of emotion and try to include a mix of both in my final galleries.  I love colors and textures and try to incorporate a lot of elements in my images to create that "magic" fuzzy feel to them.  Photoshop is my best friend.  Teaching at Summerana has been an amazing experience and I hope you love it too.  I can't wait to share all of my tips and tricks with you.


My camera bag is like a mom's purse with a little bit of everything but the most important part is my gear, of course. I am team canon and in my bag one can find ;

Body: Canon 5D mark III Canon 6D (backup camera)

Lens: Canon 200mm F2 Canon 70-200 IS F2.8 Canon 50mm F1.4 Sigma Art 35mm F1.4 Sigma Fisheye 15mm F2.8
