Following the successful first part of her Summer series 'Oh My Summer Days'  Atlanta-based multifaceted creative, Valheria Rocha, releases the second part of this new and exciting project. Capturing love, sun. and beauty, this creative young woman is a force to be reckoned with and even though her approach to documentary photography is unique, sleek, and powerful we can't deny the honesty, tenderness, and kindness seen in each and every image she takes and creates.

 

Valheria is one of a kind, capturing a real and captivating sense of youth through her lenses. If you ever wondered what youth looks like, just take a few minutes to admire her work. Love, freedom, and happiness are the driving forces in her work and they all come together in a harmonious and creative way. For the second part of this Summer visual diary, Valheria teams up with Makeup Artist and 'Modern Renascence Woman' McKenzie Mann whose creative abilities are perfectly combined with Valheria's for an outcome of refreshing beauty.

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 cosiness of fall and gathering.”
