María del Pilar Chapa is a portrait photographer and international educator from Odessa, Texas. She was formerly a beauty consultant and makeup artist working with brands such as Lancôme, Estée Lauder, and Clinique.

Pilar's love for fashion and beauty photography began in college while writing a fashion blog, Bold In Crimson, when she realized the need for visual imagery for the blog.

She is inspired by all mediums of art, business, nature, culture, and natural beauty. Most of all, simplicity and soul guides her style that continues to evolve through her experiences.

Pilar is, also, passionate about education initiatives and collaboration projects.

In 2014, she traveled through Brazil on a two month excursion, while coaching English to Brazilian students.

In July 2017, Pilar relocated to Medellín, Colombia where she now resides and teaches at an international school. She is a member of the latin social dance community, and also enjoys yoga, hiphop, contemporary, and a variety of other dances. Her philosophy is that each one of us has gifts which serve a purpose to make the world a better place.
