Today we’d like to introduce you to Priscilla Caraveo.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Well, I’ve always LOVED photography, but I never thought it was something I could actually do. Instead, I got a degree in English and began working as an English as a second language professor at USC. I worked there for several years before having my first son. When he was born, I did the whole working mom thing, commuting to LA every day, and I was (for the most part) surviving. But then I got pregnant with twins!
After the twins were born, I went back to work, but I only lasted about 6 months. Having two newborns and a 2-year-old was exhausting! However, the bigger issue for me was that I was missing out on too many precious milestones. Becoming a stay-at-home mom was amazing! I wanted to take in and remember every moment, so I pulled out my old camera decided to start capturing those special moments with my family. The next thing I knew, people were asking me to photograph their families. That is how Priscilla Caraveo Photography was born.
Please tell us about your art.
I am a natural light, portrait photographer who lives to capture the fun, special, and joyful moments of everyday life. I am all about real moments between families, children, and couples. I love to explore beautiful locations, highlight people’s unique personalities, and have that individuality shine through my photos. Candid laughter and happiness are everything! It’s that happiness that people bring to their sessions that inspires me because life is so precious and we have to cherish every minute.
Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national or international events and issues affect your art?
I think the role of artists constantly changes and evolves with time, and what is happening in the world is clearly reflected in many people’s art. When times are hard, pain and suffering may show through one’s images and art. Others may portray images to promote social change and awareness to help those in need.
I love all types of art and forms of expression and think artists play a crucial role in showing the world the many different perspectives that exist. We are currently living in a difficult time, and that is why I am so focused on capturing the joy. I believe in focusing on the good in this world and treasuring the moments we have with loved ones. Because in the end, that is all that really matters.
