The Saguaro (cactus) blooms in spring and its flower survives only 24 hours. In nature, it's common for beauty to have a short life and for youth to be synonymous with beauty. Through photography, Alejandro has frozen Angela's beauty in time. Both created this editorial in the middle of an oasis that the desert offered them. The hot rock served as a support for the naked skin, the curves of her body stand out and it seems impossible to be oblivious to her gaze.

This is a great question, there are so many things but a positive message I would like to spread is that it doesn’t matter where you come from, all things are possible if you work hard. It can be easy to fall in to temptation and take short cuts or do things that may seem easier to get to where you want to go, but just staying true and authentic to yourself will get you a whole lot further.
Who do you admire and why?
Honestly I have always been drawn to icons in the 50s-60s people I really look up to such as Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball and Audrey Hepburn. I look up to them because they are such strong females, I feel like there was so much originality and something so timeless about how they represented themselves. And that’s what I aspire to be.
