I am an Italian photographer based in Las Vegas. I was born and raised in Trieste, Italy. I have loved photography since my childhood and in the past few years I have had the opportunity to become a professional. As a school teacher and outdoors instructor in a previous career, I learnt to value contact with people. I therefore strive to give my clients the best experience possible.
I love the outdoor lifestyle and being in nature, whether I am climbing, skiing or hiking. I enjoy seeing beautiful landscapes, however my true photographic passion are people. I believe in making people feel good about themselves and giving them a positive and fun experience in front of the camera. I want to create something memorable and timeless for them to show in years to come.
Portrait photography is something I love! I come from a family of artist so I have always seen the human body in different art forms. With any portrait I can capture the essence of people and important moments in their life. With Boudoir Photography I can help all women to feel more beautiful and confident in life and create art for them.
Beside English, I speak fluent Spanish, Italian and intermediate German. I love teaching and I still tutor languages privately in Las Vegas.
I invite you to come and experience a photoshoot with me!

Like Coco Chanel famously said, “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”. Having grown up in Italy and admiring our Italian fashion, I connect deeply with this statement and I try to apply it when choosing outfits or advising on styles for elegant and classy photoshoots. We aimed to keep the style for this shoot simple and classy. The first outfit consisted of a nice flowery body and a floaty skirt, gold earrings and a summer hat.
I love to get to know and photoshoot people with a great passion in their lives. I’m interested in the stories and love capturing the passion they exhume within my images. Alex is one of these people, with a great passion for cigars and fashion. He used to be a successful bar manager and bartender in Serbia (placing 2nd in a bartender word cup) and then expanded into cigars and eventually moved to Las Vegas. You can now find him at La Casa Cigars in Tivoli Village.
Last week I went to Floyd Lamb Park, in the North side of Las Vegas, to see a family who volunteers at Horses for Heroes. The park is really nice; with traditional buildings, a couple of lakes and greenery, it is a great spot for family time and relaxation. On site there is the Horses for Heroes ranch. I learnt that the charity aims at providing affordable riding opportunities for heroes and their immediate families: veterans, military personnel, as well as other heroes in our communities including, but not limited to, nurses, special needs teachers, first responders and more.
When visitors from other States are interested in outdoor photoshoots I am overjoyed. I love showing Las Vegas' beautiful natural surroundings and creating photoshoots that are both an adventure and an exploration. Furthermore visitors remind me how lucky we are in Las Vegas to enjoy a great climate for a large part of the year, with sunny skies and bright colors.
The sand dunes were the set for the story of a princess in starting on her own adventure. We created a sophisticated outdoor photoshoot in California's Kelso sand dunes by Martina Zando Photography , with the elaborate feather headpiece from Theoddportraits, clothing from Gypsy05, jewelry from desertdaisyjewelry and hair by Vlad.
I’m very excited to publish the photos from the Metallic Shoot, a fantastic collaboration of a group of creative, talented and amazing ladies!
