Introducing Adriah…my little girl!

I had an up and down day with my little girl! Adriah will be 2 in a couple of weeks and parenting her keeps me on my toes. She’s loving life one minute and on the floor whining the next…sheer entertainment.

Here’s a glimpse into my life…outside of photography! These are my passions. There is nothing more irresitable then her small voice asking me to “com-min” follow her with all our bags in tow!

I got the equipment I ordered from WPPI in the mail yesterday and this was my first opportunity to use my new Canon lense (50mm – 1.2). IT’S AMAZING! Can’t wait to try it on my brides this summer!

I love the blog Noemi! I also love the pics. They always seem to brighten my day. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep reading.

Photography is my passion!

I’m still buzzing from the Vegas conference! My husband tells me I haven’t stopped talking about photography and related plans since I’ve come home. I can’t help it! I’ve learned so much about myself and the passion God put inside me for capturing moments and telling peoples stories, I want everyone to know I’m doing what makes me happy!

I know what kind of photographer I want to be and want kind of photographer I’m not. That’s comforting…I don’t want to try and be something I’m not, but at the same time I want to keep learning and growing in my trade.

Things are good. Business is booming.

I lost it all in Vegas!

Well…I guess I didn’t lose it all but I did lose something extremely valuable to me.

Our second Christmas married, my husband surprised me by putting a ring in my stocking! We had set a limit on Christmas presents and neither one of us kept to the limit. I bought him a digital camera and he bought me the ring and more!

Picture me all pumped about being at my first Photography conference, taking notes like a mad women…and I looked down and saw…after only one day in Vegas.

My heart sank…of course there was no way I could retrace my steps in Vegas of all places. So instead, it makes for a sad story that is sad enough to make it on the blog.

A moment of silence for the lost diamond please…alright moving on!

I’m back from the WPPI conference in Las Vegas! I thought I’d document the last day for the blog…not a lot of words! Let’s let the pictures do the talking!

Did you know there are escalators outside in Vegas? I didn’t. It was great to glide everywhere…especially in 2 inch heels! 🙂

It wasn’t all work we had some play! This is Alexander and Tiffany by the pool!

We stayed at the Flamingo but, conferenced at Bally’s…It was gorgeous at night!

One of my FAV. mentors was Mike Colon! He’s a big wig from California and all around “nice guy.” Live models and untouched photos are the best way to do it.

So, they mispelled Prairie…WPPI’s expertise is in Photography, not spelling!

After a week of being saturated with knowledge and inspiration…I had lots to be happy about!
