Top Moments of 2018
Swimming in Multum-Ha Cenote
Three years ago, I saw a photo of a someone swimming in a cenote and right away I marked it down on my bucket list of places too travel. Earlier this year while traveling through the Western Caribbean, I was able to make a stop at Multum-Ha Cenote in Coba. There are three cenotes in Coba, and this is often called the best and the most serene out of the three cenotes due to its location being a little bit more out of the way. If you want to swim in a cenote that is less crowded, choose this one on your visit.
For those that have been following me. I’ve been staying here every year for the past few years. It just feels like home. This year I stayed in the WOW Suite, which if you haven’t seen my stories, it’s up in my highlights. One of the photos I posted at the hotel this year got over 6k likes. The most likes I’ve ever received on a photo. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the team at the hotel and they are some of the coolest people ever. So grateful for everyone there for always being there for me and making me feel at home. I can’t wait to be back again verrry soon!
I started photography less than 2 years ago. Before that, I’ve never worked with a professional camera. I’ve been very fortunate to have my photos picked up by various official tourism accounts in London, Paris, Los Angeles and some major fashion accounts such as Zac Posen, Dolce and Gabbana, Monique Lhuillier, and Zuhair Murad. This year my Paris photo was picked up by CNN Travel and my Portugal photo was picked up by Forbes Travel Guide, those were two major moments for me in 2018.
This was one of my favorite trips of 2018. Mainly due to the fact that I had the pleasure of meeting so many great people on this trip. I stayed at Sandals Royal Barbados and it was the beginning of a great partnership with them. A little story behind this photo- It took two separate shoots to get the shots I wanted. The first time we shot it, there were too many people in the pool and any travel photographer knows the importance of getting a clean shot. We got up super early the next day and got the shots done before 8am. The shot I posted few months ago on my feed is one of my favorite shots of 2018.
This moment in Mahahual
This photo in particular is probably my favorite of 2018 in terms of mood and vibe. It was taken in Mahahual. We were supposed to have a day of snorkeling there, but it rained so hard that we ended up not being able to see much snorkeling. However, the clouds and the rain made the perfect canvas for this photo. I don’t always get to post darker, moodier photos on my feed because they just don’t do that well, but this photo here really represents what I would love to post more of it. Maybe for 2019!
