TO BE TOLD.”
- AIDA LLANOS
I never planned on being a photographer. But I always knew that I am the happiest when I am creating and helping others. Since the beginning, I’ve been fascinated about the way we communicate, how we connect with others and how we tell stories. That led me to study Communications at uni. I’ve also always loved to work with children and families —I actually started working with children when I was just 13 years old! And one day everything made sense. I wanted to help families to tell their own stories and capture memories for them. In other words, I want you to look at your photos in 20 years and feel how much you are loved and that your story matters. I am obsessed with capturing memories and being able to do it fills my heart and brings so much joy to to my love of photography.
I love people even though I am an introverted. Above all I am passionate, an endless optimist and maybe a bit sensitive too. I love to travel and discover new places and cultures. If you would come with me to a holiday you wouldn’t find me sunbathing for five hours in a row. Chances are that I would be exploring the nearest mountain or talking to the locals about their everyday life. And yes, taking tons of pictures too. Want to know more? Breakfast has become my favourite meal of the day. I have to really push myself to go to the gym, only to discover every time that –surprise, surprise- I am not good at it. However, I think that it is also important to do things that you suck at. I am also quite bookish and love to watch of movies. One of my favourite things to do is to spend time with friends and family. And having a long chat with them over a glass of rosé is my perfect idea of a Sunday afternoon.
I feel like I am bit like my clients. And like my photos. Perfectly imperfect but full of love… trying to figure out this chaos that we call life one day at a time. It will be an honour to tell your family’s story. Your story demands telling and I am here for you.
