I first met Vianney through a mutual friend (Gerald Flores / TacoGear.com) when she was looking to add some fresh headshots to her lineup. I immediately loved working with her (and began digging into her awesome website – SweetLifeBake and loved what I was seeing there. We had done two projects together (including shooting her line of merch, SoyTejana) and she asked me if I’d be interested in photographing her tamalada. Of course, being from south Texas, I knew what tamales, so I could only assume that a tamalada was some sort of gathering to either make or consume tamales. Let’s just say I was down.
