Azsa and Michael’s Engagement Session

I met Michael when I did a photo session with his family a few years ago and I simply adore his family!  I also captured his parent’s surprise wedding vow renewal to celebrate their 30th anniversary that Michael and his sister, Tiffanie arranged…it was awesome!

Needless to say, I was excited and honored when he contacted me to see if I would be available to do his wedding this October…and when I met his lovely bride to be, Azsa, that put the icing on the wedding cake!

I always encourage clients to choose a location that they truly want instead of what’s close and convenient so when Azsa suggested Rodeo Drive…I was all in!

We had a two part session with part one in Temecula/Murrieta which included one of their favorite spots and part 2 on Rodeo Drive.

Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session!

Michael is a drummer…and we know who has dibs on this handsome and talented drummer!

Old Town Temecula – Anuyell’s Photo Shoot

Anuyell wanted a simple photo shoot for an upcoming milestone birthday party so we headed to Old Town Temecula and got some great images for him to use for his invitations and birthday party.

Anuyell is an assistant coach at a Community College in San Diego County so we had to incorporate a little bit of a sports theme…AND just as a side note, he recently received his Masters Degree!!  He has quite a bit to be proud of and plenty of reasons to celebrate!

Here are a few of my favorites from our session…enjoy!

Luis and Jill ♥

When I first spoke to Jill on the phone I instantly loved her energy!   The love that she and Luis have for each other was evident as she shared their story of how they rose above a few odds to become one.

We decided to do a photo shoot at a location that has special meaning to her and Luis.  I always encourage people to choose a spot that is special to them and not on convenience, and since they love the beach that is exactly where we headed and it was worth it!!

Jill and Luis were recently married and will be celebrating with friends and family this July!

Here are a few of my favorites from our session.

The Train That Led Me to the Museum of Photographic Arts

I recently decided to take on a weekly photographic challenge of photographing a specific theme each week. This week the theme was trains, and even though I recently joined a wonderful group of photographers at a real train station, I wanted to go out and try to get creative. I decided I would go to the Train Museum in Balboa Park, but on my way to the Train Museum, I passed the Museum of Photographic Arts.  Now you know I LOVE photography, so after looking at the cost of the Train Museum I opted to use my money to go and enjoy the amazing exhibit they had at the Museum of Photographic Arts called 7 billion Others and the Model and Muse of Hendrik Kerstens…I just could not resist and I have NO regrets!!

Here are a few images I gathered from my wonderful trip to the Museum 🙂

BalboaPark-3877_blog

At the entrance of the Museum, they had a multimedia exhibition called 7 billion Others in which various individuals from all over the world expressed different experiences and emotions that had me glued to the 30 minute presentation…it was very interesting to see the different experiences that we all have in common yet from different cultures.

Once you pass the multimedia exhibition at the entrance, they had different booths with various videos of people sharing personal thoughts and life experiences.

There was also a gallery with the works of Hendrik Kerstens.  I had never heard of him, but it was a collection of his daughter, his muse, and they were stunning images that looked like different time periods of her.

I’m looking forward to an adventurous 2015 as I try different things and find new knowledge as I embark on my creative journey.  I’m so thankful that I can do this as I do not take one minute for granted…life is just too short and while I have the blessing of good health and the opportunity, I plan to appreciate EVERY moment that I’m blessed to have.

Blessings!
