I'm Adrieli Cancelier, but you can call me Adri or Aunt Adri :)

I am a professional lifestyle photographer of families in Curitiba, but first of all, I register the bonds.

I was born in Criciúma and it took me to adapt in Curitiba, but today I feel like a complete Guri from Curitiba. I'm 30 years old, a Marketing graduate, a chocolate addict, married to my sweetheart Andrius, the lovely 2-year-old Benjamin's aunt and I'm dreaming of the excitement of registering families.

My dream is to become a mother. My passion is my family and the moments with the people that I love, I never deny a moment to be with them and laugh until they hurt the belly. Maybe by now, you know, but I love writing. I'm a pseudo-cinephile, I love movies, popcorn, coffee, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. I love shooting in the winter, but I hate the cold. I love salty and hot summer skin, crispy hair, sea noise.

When I think about my childhood I see children lying on the sun-baked asphalt at night, I see hands clasped, I see hugs, I see many smiles, I always see a baby nearby and I see a guava tree. I'm rather shy and do not look for experiences that I'm not comfortable with, but I have a great ability to connect with people, especially with children. I've been surrounded by them all my life. I thrive on hearing new stories and telling old stories. I love traveling and exploring every corner. I like to observe the small details and keep them in my memory. I have a good memory.

I started photographing my own family when I was a kid. I collected money and bought a yellow analog camera with a film reel. I photographed my mom and dad sitting on the couch at home, me and my sister taking a shower and my doll collection. I packed everything into a little box and those memories became relics to me. I specialize in natural light, but the truth is that I no longer think of the light while I am photographing. I'm just as watchful, keeping that scene on my camera. I think more of the light when I'm not working, but if the scene is too beautiful I turn off my camera and save that moment just for me.

I chose to photograph only families and children's parties in 2013, as I believe that these family affective memories help in the process of self-knowledge and strengthening the bonds of the child and the family. I am in favor of education based on experience and respect for the child. Our lives are like trees, where each memory is a fragile and beautiful leaf about to fall. So I chose to photograph only what is yours, at home or outdoors in a sunny environment.
