Omar's "50th Again" Birthday Celebration

 

I had the pleasure of witnessing a fun-filled birthday celebration last Sunday for the forever-young, Señor Omar Bizaro.  Since Argentina made it to the final game in this year's La Copa Mundial, Argentinian Omar was treated by his darling wife with a World Cup themed party.  Con buena comida, música and surrounded by his beloved family and close friends ―qué gran celebración!

The heat was definitely up a notch during Stephanie & Daniel's Pasadena engagement session.  These are my favorite images from the ones I was able to take myself, while assisting my friend Jane of {Jane D Photography}... To view the whole session, click here.

Had a bit of 'foreground' fun with these two images... do take a shot at guessing what I used, for a bit of fun!

2013 Walk Now for Autism Speaks

I will be at tomorrow's walk start & finish lines... Do stop-by & say "Hi!"

 

Oh Brothers!

Not much for me to say really, only one word comes to mind... CUTENESS!  These cute-as-a-button brothers are my son's little buddies at their elementary school's Halloween Parade.

Twice for a Good Cause

It does feel nice indeed to give a gift of your time & talent for a good cause.  Like when I covered this Golf Tournament, in which the proceeds went to a non-profit organization building schools for the Dalits in India.  I'm no golfer, but if I were, I would definitely try to color coordinate my outfit like this big hearted lady golfer.  Now, if I could only learn to also hit the ball past 100 yards like her and have my swing look as nice...

What 'Joy' Looks Like

This is one of the images taken during the baptism events I did at my church a few weeks ago.  Of the numerous photos I did that day, this one's ingrained in my memory.  Doesn't the little girl look so jubilant?!  And of course... the red hair, freckles and sparkly blue eyes on top of the joyous look on her face ―Simply adorable!

Eye of the Beholder

As an artist, it's sometimes hard to decide what look you want for an image.  Just as the old adage goes, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."  So it's always a good idea to ask for an input from the people you're making the photographs for on how they want their images to look & feel.  Like this image below {top & bottom post-worked differently}... Which one do you prefer?

Portrait of a Lady

They call her Ate Nanette in the family and she proudly told me she's 90 years old!  I think she's an absolutely beautiful lady for her age... I've had the pleasure of being acquainted with her for a number of years now and she's not only beautiful and classy on the outside, but on the inside as well.  Every single time I've ever seen her, she always has a different hat on and I find that so adorable!

Summer Fun

Part of our 'Family Fun' this summer has been getting the kids busy with sports activities.  Our schedule's been hectic with Jiu Jitsu classes, biking, scootering (is that even a word?), swimming, tennis practices & my daughter's finally gotten a lot of chance to really use her birthday present!
