Andrea Popoca Product Photography

Modeling in the pictures for PAM + MO is Ardelis Popoca, in the location of Vista Hermosa Park. The main focus of the photo is the tote bag and shirt which says "ARTE". PAM + MO was created by two sisters, creating an impact through their community.
To portray the products how people would use them, I placed them in the environment they would be in, which would be in the shower and in water. Mixtina is a hair care product business created by an African-American mom. It is family owned, making products for multiculti curly-haired kids. "Your curls are wondrous. You are an original." is written on the conditioner bottle.
P.F Candle Co. is a candle company, they make candles with all-natural fragrances and soy wax. The candle in the photographs is called, "Night-Blooming Jasmine". Something special about P.F Candle Co. is after the candle wax is finished, instructions are in the back for how to reuse it. You can reuse it to hold anything you want to plant.
Vive Cosmetics is a Latina owned cosmetic brand. Their products are vegan and cruelty free. The products in the photograph are lipsticks and glosses. The glosses are in the shades "Morenita" and "Villana". Included in the photographs is a swatch and a model putting on the lipstick. This was to show how the product looked on skin. Modeling in the lip picture is Ardelis Popoca.

Andrea Popoca, a 14-year-old freshman at Maywood Center for Enriched Studies, has been with Las Fotos Project, an all-girls photography non-profit, for two years. Born in Bellflower, California, she is a Mexican-American photographer who was inspired by her Tio to pick up a camera. Though at one time a shy person, photography has helped her open up and tell stories through her pictures. Passionate for portraits and event photography, she shows her work through a different lens and what she sees as her calling. Photography has opened new doors for Andrea, from visiting New York to meeting new people and friends. She hopes to continue having fun and hopes to inspire others with her work.

Andrea Popoca enjoys portrait photography, this includes family portraits, headshots, environmental, and candid. She is able to capture every moment behind the scenes while taking the portraits. Her work can show others another side of you, they didn't know.
