About Vanessa

 

I am a wife and mother to 3 incredible and adventurous children. My husband and I have been married for going on 7 years in October and together for 10. He is my best friend and we have built a life together full of love and adventure. Matty is a professional tattoo artist here in San Antonio - You can visit his website at www.mattymendeztattoo.com

Ava is our oldest, she is the most intelligent, free spirited and talented girl I know. She is an all-star cheerleader at Stars Vipers and has the most dedication for her sport. When she started at age 5, I didn’t realize this would turn into a passion that drives her. Our middle son is Ezra, he is a wild child, full of loving moments to share. He hugs everyone he meets and has the stickiest memory. He loves dancing and singing and can’t wait to start Jiu Jitsu. Our baby is Luca, he our my wildcard. His birth was my most challenging and he has been different than the other two, but the moment I walk into the door after being away from him he runs up to me and showers me with kisses.

My Passion.

I began photography while I was training to be a doula, but after documenting my first birth I stopped training and decided to pursue this as much as I can. It opened up a part of me I didn’t know was there, ignited a fire that will never dim down.

My passion is to tell your story, no matter what it is, where it begins, or where it ends. I love to focus on the fleeting moments and raw emotions you share. I am not here pose you and yell “everyone say cheese” - if that is what you are looking for I will be honest and say that we may not be the best fit. I seek those authentic and intimate moments that make you and your family, who you are.

So, lets take off our shoes and go on an adventure together.
