Perla Diaz ‘Golden hour’
Perla Diaz convinced her gorgeous friend & fellow photographer, Amanda Marie to pose for her during her recent visit to LA.
“Amanda was the first person to take photos of me about 4 years ago. She is a photographer based in Miami. Amanda has a way of capturing a female & her own body in a gentle, & romantic way. A way that transforms the perception you have of yourself into a more sensual, dainty, female. She shows you a side of yourself that you never knew existed.
So when she came to visit me in LA, I wanted to capture her like she captures me. It took a little bit of convincing, but she agreed & we made art. She moved so beautifully, like a timid butterfly flirting with my lens.
This was the last set of the day, we had to finish up the golden hour with a smoke. We then reviewed the photos, & as she scrolled through her face shone with a vibrant energy of self acceptance, beauty, & confidence. I had finally been able to show Amanda how she makes me, & others feel.”
