Hi! My name is Suyen! I have been living in Bakersfield since 2018 and plan to grow roots here.  I am originally from Nicaragua but I have also studied & worked in Argentina. Over the years I have specialized in advertising photography, portraiture, lifestyle & food photography.  Photography is one of my favorite creative mediums. I love searching for beauty, telling stories thru images and creating environments. If you would like help with the visual part of your brand I would love to sit with you and talk about your strengths,  your vision, style and ideas, I can help with visual propositions and together we can plan a photoshoot that will portray your product or service in the best light. 

I am available for travel.
