One of F Word's favorite creatives and unashamed pet lover, Colombian-born, Atlanta-based photographer Valheria Rocha once again takes us on a dazzling and heartwarming journey into her very own world. This time, the gorgeous and extra-talented photographer creates joyful nostalgia as she looks back at the feelings and encounters she experienced this Summer. Traveling through California and New York, then, hitting back at her current base in Atlanta, Georgia, Rocha introduces us to some of her friends whose beautiful and captivating personalities make them some of our favorite people in the world.

 

Valheria has been mastering the art of capturing real youth in a raw and beautiful way, where her photography style merges popping colors with real stunning faces. In this new two-part series, we let ourselves go unreservedly, being led by Valheria and her friends back all the way into the Summer while remembering our very own experiences.

Meg“There’s something about summer that leaves me feeling cleansed.  Maybe it’s the free spirit of the water and the sun combining forces. Maybe it’s new beginnings and the 'freeness' of the air. Thawing out the worries of the past year. I wish I could live in this season forever, but as this one comes to an end I welcome the coziness of fall and gathering.”
