Perla is lover of Jesus, people, and photography. She has had a passion for photography since she was a young girl. In 2020, her amazing husband bought her a beginners camera for her to expand her passion. She began taking free photo sessions of her friends and family to grow her portfolio. Soon after that, her camera got stolen from her car. She was completely devastated but trusted that God would make a new way. She was scrolling through Instagram one day and saw that a big photographer was doing a giveaway. He was giving away a Canon Mark 5D III. Her heart leaped with with joy!!! In the entry, one of the rules was to tag friends and family. Every tag was an entry and you know what? She tagged everyone she knew under the sun. Her husband, friends, and family began entering the give-away for her and tagging her in hope that she would win. She prayed and prayed, “Lord, if this is what you want me to do, let me win that camera.” The day of announcing the winner came and her phone was receiving calls and messages. She found out SHE WON!!!! She got down on her knees and praised God. She have been loving this story and her camera ever since.
I love everything about Photography. I love meeting new people. I love hearing new life stories. I love editing. Sure, there are up and downs but I can’t complain— I simply love it all. God gave me a huge dream and passion to make people feel seen, not only seen in the physical aspect but the way our precious Lord sees all of us.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done weddings, portraits, family, events, maternity, etc. I treat every single session uniquely and intentionally. I adjust to the environment and see what needs to be done for it to work out. If there are children, I will entertain the children in order to get the best photos. Portraits, I will help every step of the way to get the best angles and poses. More importantly, in every single session that I have, my main focus is to have my clients completely relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.
A fun fact about this photographer
I love attending my local church and have been for 5 years alongside my wonderful husband. I love community, I love my pastors, and I love unity within the body of Christ. My favorite Bible verse is Matthew 6:33 and I aspire to live my live in that matter every single day of my life.
