special moment

Descanso Garden Maternity Shoot

A couple of  months ago I got the opportunity to photograph Yasmin and her growing family at Descanso Gardens. It was such a thrill hearing their love story from having a long distance relationship to their marriage, and finally becoming parents.  She is such a beautiful mommy both in and out so calm and relaxing!  Oscar is so attentive her every need he made sure she was comfortable.

I found myself becoming incredibly sentimental throughout their session with how they described their love for each other. 

I know they will both be amazing parents to their bundle of joy! 

Rosa + Everardo = The Observatory Engagement Session

Rosa's and Everardo's session was so much fun!  I loved how adventurous they were in picking their location in LA, the Griffith Observatory is the perfect location to capture their love story. 

 She herself is an amazing photographer in Porterville.  Evardo has been the one to push her constantly when things get difficult in her business.  No matter what he is the one who believes she is capable of accomplishing her goals.

She comes from a family who is hardworking and dedicated.  With that strength and ambition to keep on giving her family the best possible, she has successfully impacted so many people's life through her amazing work.  

I can not wait to be able to capture their amazing wedding day and finally have their families and loved ones witness this special day..  

Thank you

The moment I met Citlali and Daniel I knew this shoot was going to be so much fun!  Besides greeting us with one of the warmest hugs, they carried a smile of excitement.  The light was shining, the day was filled with golden rays, and Citlali and Daniel were ready for an adventure.   Daniel kept his eyes on Citlali constantly telling her jokes, just to see her beaming smile.  Some of  the many features he loves about her.  They danced, held hands, and kissed as the last rays of the sun hit the treasured city.  Keeping each moment as a cherished memory and a reminder of them becoming husband and wife. The last part of this session took place in a parking lot overlooking the city.  It was the best way to catch the sunset!

Citlali and Daniel, we had a blast with you two!  Thank you for being so adventurous and laughing throughout your session.  By the way, that wind gave you such a Beyonce moment! I can not wait for your fall wedding in Springville Ranch, The Big White Barn.   

 

Mariachi Wedding

Gabriela wedding was so different I fell in love with all the vibrant colors they used in their wedding.  The couple infused their culture to their wedding day, I was surrounded of mixes of bright colors.  They even incorporated Mexican attire to their wedding dress and he was dressed up as a true charro.  

I have never seen the use of the zarape so elegantly used.  This was one of the weddings I was able to be part of and capture back in October when I was still working as a second photographer for Rosalina Suarez Photography.  

 I am completely fortunate for everything I learned from my mentor, and I will never forget how much she helped me .  She pushed me to start this new journey in my life.  At times (which is a lot) when I am feeling low and insecure about my business she is the person I call.  She is one of the few who understands how difficult it is to start a business.  I think she believes in me more than I believe in myself.  Rosa, I can not thank you enough for being such an incredible mentor!

This new journey has really forced me to dig into who I really am, and I love every second of it.  Yes, like I said before there is days I want to drop the towel, but there are other days especially when I see the gratification of my clients when I think I love my job!
