A few more of the girls.

All of the photos were pretty much amazing. I can't wait to do more pictures at Cannonsburgh tomorrow.

Happiness in the air

The following pictures make me happy! Even though by the end of this we were tired, sticky, dehydrated, and starving we laughed the entire time. The girls are my cousins and they agreed to model for me so I could get some shots for the I♥Faces photo challenge this week. I'm getting more and more used to my lens..and I think I'm getting better at this whole photography thing! I've had a lot of inspiration this week, so thank you to all the great photographers out there that inspire me everyday! Enjoy!

Week 25- IHeartFaces Photo Challenge

Today we had so much fun! For this challenge I asked my cousins Cecilia, Ale and Dulce to be my models for the day. It was so hard picking just one photo to post. There were so many good ones (that I will share in a different post) I chose this one because it was a candid shot and she just exudes beauty and happiness. The light at that spot was wonderful and I just knew I had to shoot wide open to get some nice bokeh and I did!! I hope you like it as much as I do!

Adrian's New Do Photoshoot

This is how long Adrian's hair was before we cut it...

And this is now!! I was sad when we cut it but he needed it. It's been so hot and humid here and he would just get all sweaty and hot super I don't have any a.c in my car so rides were becoming quite uncomfortable for him. I'm getting used to it, and as you can see he is happy as ever!

Fix it Friday

This is my edit for this week's Fix it Friday. For my edit, I adjusted the curves, smoothed her face and brightened her eyes a bit. I also cropped the image and burned the edges. I'm trying to keep my processing clean and simple. Thank you to Julie Rivera for submitting this picture and letting us play with it!

Baby Fever is the theme over at I♥Faces this week, well no not really, but looking at all those baby pictures will give you baby fever, it has me! This is Connor, he has grown a lot since last time I saw him. It goes by too fast. I miss my baby being a baby too! Head over to I♥Faces to get your baby fix.

Conceptual Fashion Photo Shoot

Last Wednesday was awesome. I can't even begin to tell you how I excited I was when I knew I was going  to assist in a  photo shoot. The man behind the camera was Michael Howard. I met him a few months ago when he led the I♥Faces Photo Walk in Nashville. Ever since then I've been following his work on his Facebook and his Webpage. He is an amazing photographer; he shoots weddings, underwater, fashion, and musicians. What I love most about his work is his generosity to share his knowledge. Micheal is having a workshop in Kansas City Missouri on July 7th and 8th where he will help photographers find their unique vision. This comes directly from his workshop website "I firmly believe in encouraging people to make their photography about what excites them most instead of what pays them most. While it's great to make a living through photography, it's best to feel alive through it. My goal is to help photographers express their point of view and discourage them from becoming clones of people they admire."  Isn't that awesome! People like Michael are the reason why I choose to pay it forward. Thank you so much for letting me part of this!  The shoot Wednesday was conceptual fashion. Conceptual just means that there was an idea and planning before the image was created and also usually there is some type of message. I was kinda nervous while driving there. I always get nervous when meeting new people, and I kept thinking I was just not going to fit in...BUT all the people there that made this shoot possible were SO NICE!! There was a good energy all around and I felt like I had worked with these people before. I didn't get to take many behind the scenes shots since I was busy helping Michael out, but here are a few.

The beautiful super nice Salome (you may recognize her from Bravo's Make me a Super Model Season 2) getting makeup done by the super talented Eryk of DaturaGlamourCouture.

The house was beautiful. There was amazing art everywhere and the living room had glass walls! I wish I had a house like that full of NATURAL light!

Salome goofing off before the shoot started.

Oh yeah it's looking good! (Salome, Michael, Connie! she was the stylist and had the coolest clothes!! and John the owner of the house)

Going for a different look...

Shana was the master of the hairspray! I just realized every picture I have of her she is hiding!! Or I cropped her, sorry Shana! you were wonderful!

Last but not least Jackson. One thing you should know about him is not to touch his tail.

Thanks for stopping by!
