Lutecia Lopes | About

Hi! My name is Lutecia (pronounced Lu-tessy-a).

Lutecia comes from "Lutetia", the predecessor of present-day Paris. I haven’t visited the City of Lights yet, but it's on my bucket list. My name may not be easy to remember or pronounce, so let’s make it simple. Please call me “Lu”. That’s what my family and friends call me.

I’m originally from Brazil but the US has been my home sweet home for the last 21 years. I love God, my family, creativity, and Brazilian food – pão de queijo (cheese bread), coxinha (chicken and cheese balls), and brigadeiro (chocolate truffles, present in every special occasion). Delicious!

I’ve always had a creative mind and for the past 25 years I’ve enjoyed working as a graphic designer. I treasure composition, colors, fonts, and simple but powerful layouts. In college, I loved studying photography and use it daily as an important tool in my design work.

When my daughter was born, I fell in love all over again with photography. When friends saw my photos, they asked me to record their memories too. That’s how it all started. I enjoy offering photography services to friends and family, and feel rewarded capturing moments and creating memories.

About my sessions:

I specialize in natural light photography. My sessions are mostly outdoors, in the Orlando area (Maitland, Longwood, Altamonte Springs, Winter Park, Apopka). I love being creative, especially during full sessions when time allows for more flexibility, wardrobe change, etc. I strive to help my clients have a relaxing and fun experience. I want them to be super excited when they see their pictures. I frequently hear that they can’t stop looking at their pictures. That makes me so happy!

About my availability:

I’m available on Sundays and have limited availability during the week. As a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, I believe that the Sabbath is a special day to spend with God, family, and friends, for that reason I do not work on Saturdays.

I'd love to register moments for you, so please go ahead and message me if you’d like to book a session! I speak English, Portuguese and Spanish. Can't wait to meet you!
