We are so excited to start a new segment to our blog where we will be featuring one of our Iris Works users very Friday! We love being able to connect photographers in the community, inspire others, and share a little bit about who our users are.
Without further ado, meet Gloria!
My name is Gloria and I am a South Florida based natural light portrait photographer. I was born in Managua, Nicaragua, migrated with my family to Miami in 1994 and now call sunny South Florida my home!
I am happily married to an incredibly supportive man, my greatest friend and college sweetheart, George. I am the lucky mommy to three inspiring girls, Gia, Eva and Eli and one miniature schnauzer named Uno that makes our hearts especially happy.
I chose this profession somewhat in a roundabout way. I studied Political Science and Women Studies in college and worked in higher education for many years. I was a painter and illustrator in my earlier years and always dreamed of doing something related to art. I followed my instincts and in August 2014, as a part time venture, I launched my photography business specializing in newborns, maternity, engagements, seniors and family photography. In January 2015 I became a full time photographer and have not looked back since!
Beyond the lens, I am an all or nothing kind of girl, love happy tears, slow mornings, succulents, tulips, peonies, cooking (would have loved to be a chef) and I am obsessed with mangos and tea. I am afraid of the ocean, I could live on sushi, I love old movies, I don’t drink caffeine, I have a weak spot for antiquing and thrifting, I love the sound of vinyl records, I homeschool one of my girls, I know how to sew, and I love naps!
