My name is Désirée and I am Indigo Peaks. I came up with the name for Indigo Peaks Photography, while watching the first stroke of indigo streak the sky moments before the sun began to rise over the mountains of North Carolina, where my husband and I had been camping out.

Originally from Costa Rica, I am passionate about my homeland, not to mention the fact that my entire awesome family still lives there. I am a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, having survived the grueling Engineering Physics program. It was a "hurts so good' kind of pain! HA! 

I  am S.T.E.M. lover of all things! My current passions are in Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry... and TRAVEL, because who doesn't love to explore the entire planet?! :) My current mission in life is to get into Medical School in the coming year and to pursue this deep calling in my life.... kids and all! I'm blessed to have such a supportive family!

Indigo Peaks Photography is no longer a full-time business as it once was, but I still take a few events per year (simply because of my love for it!), but am focusing on the humanitarian and non-profit stories that mean a lot to me. I hope to share more scientific photography and travel imagery in the coming year with you all. Here's to a fabulous 2016 and to putting our best foot forward to living the life we want! Many Blessings!
