” I live in sweats and comfy clothes in my studio while I’m working, but I like to contrast that look when I leave for the day. I look for comfortable yet fun clothes to wear as I run around from one kid activity to another. I enjoy putting my clothes together as I try to combine different elements that I haven’t tried before and hopefully surprise myself. ” - Maria Vasconcelos
StyleMom Photographer: Mindy Véissid, a native New Yorker, grew up surrounded by lights, shadow and movement. Her photos reflect not only this, but also incorporates her creative background in painting and writing by use of metaphor, texture and composition. Mindy has been called an intuitive photographer, in that she shoots from her heart. Because of this, she is able to capture candid, true and fleeting moments. Before becoming an international fine art photographer in 2009, Mindy worked in the corporate world and found herself living in Luxembourg and Switzerland for six years. Mindy moved back to the US in 2007, and currently resides in New York City. For more information, visit www.MindyVeissid.com or on Facebook.
