Racquel | "Capturing her youth"

Racquel is the daughter of my near & dear friend Michelle.  She is such a cutie and she's so fun and natural in front of the camera.  We enjoyed ourselves at the Chula Vista Lake, sitting on the rocks, fighting off the bugs and running in the dirt.  It's always great to spend time with a good friend and my cousin Theresa who did her hair and make up.  I know she's not quite a senior yet but we'll do this all again next year.  :)  Michelle put it in perfect words..."Thank you for capturing her youth"

Andrea has that vintage style beauty about her and how perfect was it she has the volkswagen as her prop!  My cousin Theresa Lizada did her hair and make-up and she did an outstanding job.

Project "Chimi" Shoot 2 Hula & Yoli

Project "Chimi".  Shoot 2 was so much fun.  I teamed up with Elyse Iwashika of EMI Artistry on this Maternity/Couple shoot and soo soo glad that I did.  She did a superb job on Yolanda's hair and makeup.  We told her she looked like a goddess while shooting her in at Mission Trails...They both beamed with love as they held the baby bump and gave each other kisses.  They are truly a beautiful couple inside and out...

Hula and Yoli, I had a blast with you guys even after everything... the bee sting on my foot, the almost stepping in doggy boo boo, parking 82 miles away from your house, the prickly weeds in my legs at Mission Trails and "Gato" getting her nails into my pants...LOL.  You're images are beautiful and the emotion in them say it all...You both will be amazing parents.

Practice for prom!!!

Seven girls getting ready in my daughters room, quite hectic if you ask me. Curling iron, straight irons, make up, heels and dresses all spread out and ready to go. All the girls looks so darn this just a sneak peek at what prom would be like...?
I was designated mom to drive to and from...these girls reminded me as we drive up to their dance at the base, how excited I was going to my first "dressed up" dance. I just heard giggles and laughs in the rear if the car. be young again.
