Hi! My name is Oriana Higuera, and I am passionate about the beauty of life. If I had to tell you three things about me, they would be that I follow Jesus Christ as my Savior, I love my family and, last but not least, my shoes never match my outfit.
I was born in Venezuela, and I have been living in the USA since 2010. This country has given me the opportunity to grow as a person in so many ways. When I first moved here, I decided that I would focus more on my family, and dedicated my time to watch my children grow. However, while enjoying my stay-at-home mom years, I focused on the idea that when I went back to work, I would do something that I was excited about.
After so many prayers asking for wisdom, and trying to figure out what I was passionate about, God answered my prayers through GRACE, yes! Grace is one of my best friend's daughters who is with Down Syndrome.
On January 23rd 2017, my friend asked me to take pictures of her and her friends celebrating her 33rd birthday at the park. I must confess that, on that day, I was still shooting with my camera on AUTO Mode, and I knew absolutely nothing about light painting, but what I did know was how to capture the happiness and joy of those kids.
That afternoon, I came home totally convinced that being a Professional Photographer was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Since 2021 I'm proudly member and certified by PPA. (Professional Photographers of America)
