What's your favorite color?
Blue & orange are my favorites!
What are your hobbies?
Traveling, hiking, cooking and spending time with friends and family are some of my favorite things to do. I also love being creative in ways other than photography. I have played violin since the age of 6, and started playing in orchestras at the age of 8. The last orchestra I played in was the Hunt Valley Symphonic Orchestra. It was discontinued because of Covid 19, but once they start performing again I will rejoin! I also love crocheting and plan on creating a line of crocheted lingerie for my boudoir closet.
How did you get into photography?
My dad has always been my biggest role model. Anything he was into, I was into. It started with music and then grew into being interested in his hobby of photography. My dad has always been into nature photography, but I quickly became passionate about taking photos of people. A few of my first memories of photography are taking photos in nature with my dad, and having my friends model for me.
So you're Italian! What's your favorite Italian Dish?
Bucatini all’Amatriciana. So…so good. I also can’t forget about my Nonna’s fried zucchini flowers.
Viv grew up in Gaithersburg, Maryland and currently lives in Baltimore. She comes from a big Italian family, half of which lives here and the other half is back in Italy. Traveling there throughout her childhood has always been an inspiration in her photography.
What is Something people don’t really know about YOU?
I absolutely hate roller coasters or any rides that drop, but give me any scary movie or freaky haunted house to go through and I am game. One of my dreams in life is to own a goat farm, and if my husband would join me, we would live in East Asia for a couple of years.
What were your top 5 artists on your 2021 Spotify Wrapped?

What are the top 3 places to travel to on your bucket list?
