So, as you know, my name is Ursula (not after the octopus in the Little Mermaid)…

I was born in a small town in Peru and I moved to South Jersey when I was 7 years old. I went to the University of Delaware and graduated in 2021. Now, I am a full-time civil engineer with a passion photography and I will continue to do both for as long as I can!

So here is my story … My parents have always captured their lives through photographs (there’s a chest full of film photos in Peru to prove it). When I was 8 years old, I dropped my dad’s film camera and broke it ( I found it last year and tried to fix it but ended up wasting a roll of film instead). I then moved onto his little digital camera and always took photos of my friends (and selfies ofc) and used PicMonkey to edit all the photos. I adored that little camera (recently found it and have been using it again). My love for photos continued to grow and one December I begged my parents for a DSLR and after begging for so long, they finally caved in! With the help of YouTube, I was able to learn a few things and used my camera during every sunrise/sunset I could make. Now, here we are. In between getting my first camera and now, I have had the pleasure to photograph people because they simply wanted some bomb Instagram photos to post or because they graduated college or because they fell in love and then they got married and they had a baby!!! I feel so so lucky to be able to be part of the small and big moments in people’s lives. We should celebrate it all and photograph it all because it’s all we have to physically look back on!

And just some more about me…I like/enjoy: Watching movies and tv shows, traveling, basically any kind of food, reading, running, taking film photos, hanging out with my dog Coco, taking photos ;)

Now that you know some (many) things about me, I’d love to learn about you!!!
