Photography Bootcamp

January 29 2014

I started one of my New Year Resolutions to improve my photo skills. So, I signed up for a workshop given by the talented Brittni Schroeder. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but super humble and very helpful. Definitely recommend this class to anyone who is a beginner, and just trying to learn the basics. Look forward to putting my new knowledge into practice.

Baby Elliot Spring Photoshoot

October 21 2013

I am a little behind at posting these, but I wanted to share some photos I took of my dear friends’ Shadia & Jack’s Baby. You can catch Shadia at her fun & creative blog, Baby Button Brown—A great and super cute read.

Baby Elliot was definitely a lot of fun and work to photograph. Being my first time photographing a baby, that it took me two sessions to get what we wanted. Nonetheless, I learned a lot and loved the experience! Thank you for allowing me to photograph your little one, Shadia and Jack!

Karina + Luis

August 22 2013

Shooting these photos was extra special to me being that my sister is carrying the first nephew/grandson in our family. The anticipation of his arrival has been such a wonderful experience. It makes me so happy to know that Luke (my beautiful nephew) will be born into so much love. You can definitely see it with these two, and in the photos. :) Cannot wait to meet you, baby Luke. <3

Studio Lighting Workshop

April 5 2013

This week I was fortunate enough to attend a class on studio photography lighting led by Gabriel & Marcos Gurolla. I’ll be the first to admit that I know nothing about photography, especially when it comes to technique. I’ve always been more of just about the visual composition of an image. I knew it was something I needed to learn if I wanted to step up my game.

The class turned out to be a lot of fun! The best part was meeting humble and talented individuals who were willing to help us ‘get better’. Check out some photos from the class, and a photo I took of the model. I will post more photos of the actual shoot soon!

A+F Engagement Shoot

April 4 2013

My sister and her Fiancé recently asked me to take their engagement photos. I cannot believe another sister is getting married already! It was just a year ago that I was able to take my other beautiful sister’s engagement photos. I’m looking forward to posting my favorites soon! In the meantime, below is a sneak peak of the shoot and a shout out to my wonderful cousin and assistant Valentin, for helping me out a great deal!
