Giving Thanks

Well This post is well overdue. Since My Life has been in a little bit of chaos it has been a little difficult to update my blog. It would seem that everywhere I went there was No INTERNET. How did we ever live without it before. So In My Travels I was able to spend Thanksgiving with a very special person. I am ever so grateful to the Lord for placing her in my LIFE. She Made a great meal I only get credit for helping and the table was set to Give Thanks.

Everyone has different traditions. I believe this is definitely NOT the day for paper plates. I think It is SOOOO important to Thank GOD for our Blessings. That the fine china should be pulled out even if that means washing the dishes by hand ;).
I am Thankful for So Many things!!! I can't begin to name them all but Mostly I Thank God for My Husband and My Children. They Fill My Life With Love and well even though they are part of the Chaos.... I am Happy to Live with Them.

I have to say thank you to my Good Friend Yolimar for giving me the recipe for Quesitos. So..... it took me quite some time to make them, since my life is in chaos right now. But Praise the Lord for the Holidays when we can get together with the People we Love and make Delicious things. I know your suppose eat them with coffee but I made coquito too. Is that allowed?

The simple things in Life are meant to be enjoyed who cares if they have WAY too many calories.

I can honestly say I am super excited. I am also filled with Pride....I'm allowed to say that right?!? I happen to be a fan of my own work, but I am not usually one to uuummm.....toot my horn??? Well this time I'm Tootin' :)

Well, I did some product shots for a friend of mine at a bakery that were needed for the web and product brochure. (please see below for the previous post)

The marketing manager's Quote was;

"You're photos rock and they paved the road for the brochure."

I'm excited and hopeful to do more of thier product shots.....In the meantime you can check out the brochure at the link below.

Time well spent....

Someone once told me that when we leave this world the only thing we are going to take with us are the memories of the great times spent with the people we Love.

I praise God that this weekend I was able to go with my family to visit the Retired Pastors of FWC, Jesus & Digna Gonzalez. We had a great time. They have been of great support to us in many ways, especially in Prayer.

 I have to say to my Good friend and Pastor Sorines Lopez that she has one of the best set of parents EVER. I am So glad that the Lord blessed you & your siblings in such a great way. I guess, what I want to say is be greatful, for not everyone is as blessed as you :)
by the way DAD asked me to take this one just for you SOLY!
Thanks Pastors for a great weekend, Love you Guys

Wow, I never expected these temperatures here in October. (I don't enjoy the Humidity) I also didn't expect things to be so difficult here; everything from putting the kids in school to trying to get your license. People are just not as nice, as they are in Massachusetts :-/ Or it could just be that I am homesick? I would recommend buying a house if you are planning to move here, It's the only way people trust you. I really miss everyone on the east coast, and it has a lot to do that I don't have my own internet connection and my Imac is still hiding in a box. But Hey that is only temporary. I'm looking forward to getting back to work real soon.

As, you look at the pictures below keep in mind that I've been a New Englander all my Life. Trying to adjust is not easy but through My Lord Jesus Christ ALL things are possible.

As for My Husband and My children they are enjoying themselves greatly....& who can blame them it is naturally beautiful.
My Husband Is REALLY enjoying it here......Can you Tell????

They say a Good Friend is hard to find...

The kind that you keep for SOOOO many years that they feel like Family.  The Kind that you don't see at all, for years on end and when you get together it's like you've never been apart. Then you have the type of Friends that you just have a connection with, you don't have to say anything or do anything  and the connection is just there. I don't know many people my age that can say they are still Friends with say, someone that was with them freshman year in High School or Graduated with them.  

I guess I'm REALLY blessed.  I Have a long list of Life Long Friends all of which I am thankful for.  They are all different but I Love them all the same.  They know who I was, who I am and believe in who I will become.  

Unfortunately, my page will not allow me to show them all...But they KNOW who they are. However, below you will find the latest addition to my List...I'm not talking acquaintance or just people you know.  I am talking a REAL Friend......You know,,,,,,the kind that are so hard to find =)

We have encouraged each other throughout our careers & being that we are both such creative creatures we just clicked. The benefits???......She is a natural in front of my camera & My hair is always well kept ;)   

My Camera and My Hair are both gonna miss her dearly.....but it's the Company  & Chats as we both enjoyed our coffee together that I will miss the most.

The Bakery.....

A friend of mine runs a bakery and asked if I would do some product shots for the company website. He is really excited about his new 
Organic Donut Holes

It was quite the project and let's just say shooting donuts is not quite as fun as shooting people. (only because they don't talk to you) Soooooo,  I got creative and became friends with the pastries.....and to be honest with you I don't think I did that bad of a job....actually that's an understatement. I think I did a GREAT job!!!

But I'll let you form your own opinion............ Let me know if you find them appetizing....

Happy Friday!!

I Feel Blessed!!!!

Good Morning!  

I just want to take a moment to Exalt HIM this Morning publicly.  My God is more than Enough!! He Can supply all my NEEDS!  I am SOOOOO thankful to Him for all the Great People that surround me and encourage me.  I give Him the Glory!!! I Praise My Lord JESUS CHRIST!! 

I Believe He has complete control of my Life.

Since I was taught that a Blog is always better with an image.....check out the one below that I shot during the Unlimited Woman Event In NY.  

I guess I'm not the ONLY one that feels that way!

Have a Blessed Day =)

A True Blessing in My Life.....

A true woman of God..she has taught me so much.  I feel unworthy when she asks me to teach her something. I have to give thanks first to God then to Monsi Quinones for introducing us some 10 years ago. I happened to be looking for a babysitter for my daughter. She lived a few minutes from where I worked. So, it all worked out. She not only took such great care of my baby but gave me coffee in the morning before work, entertained me for lunch when I stopped by to give my baby girl Hugs & Kisses and on occasion fed me dinner too!  She had me won over just with the coffee :) ok it wasn't the coffee ;) it was the care that she took with my baby.

It didn't end there, She made me feel part of her family, she taught me all about FAITH, Invited me to her Church, and I have been there ever since. The storms have come but I have been firm with her by my side the whole time. Even when She had to move away and come back and move away again, her Love for Me and My Family has not withered. I am eternally grateful to God for allowing me to be a part of her life.

So it was with great joy that I helped her start her very first blog. In the process I took her profile portrait. As a photographer I felt it was the most important thing to do. In the end.... I don't know?  Who is more proud of who? 

So it with great Pride that I introduce to you Rev. Maria A. Castaneda!

It is with Great Sadness....

It is with great sadness that I inform my friends...that 2 lives very dear to my family were lost. My husband's brother Jesus M. Negron and sister-in-law Julyann Rivera are no longer with us. They leave 4 children ages 14,12,10 & 8. We ask that you keep our families in your prayers as we find the strength to get through this difficult time

I find it hard to believe....My previous post was about him.    To see how joyous he looked.  This is a very difficult time...I pray that peace comes to the hearts of all of us involved...

A Special Moment

My brother in law has been visiting from FLorida.  On Saturday we set out to visit family and made plans to meet his oldest son and his new baby girl. She was tiny, soft and  just plain CUTE. 

As he picked up his granddaughter for the first time he was filled with pride.  The special moments they shared were priceless....I had the pleasure of capturing a few of them.  I was amazed at how she interacted with him as if she's always known him.  As I watched them through my lens I wondered what it would feel like to be a grandmother.....but very quickly decided that for ME those feelings could certainly wait.

God Is MY Provider.....

For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, He will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.    2 cor. 9:10

Yes, People I believe that God is the One who provides....

I may not be so sure about things like Photoshop & Actions.  Or I may struggle with myself about how to make an image just right. (I'm a bit of a perfectionist.) 

But the one thing I am sure of is that I depend on HIM & He Provides.

Have a Blessed Tuesday!

In this Tough Economy....

WE have to be resourseful. Even if it means that we go back to the basics.

 is a medium in which goods or services are directly exchanged for other goods and/or services without a common unit of exchange (without the use of money).

My Friend Yadian Reyes Loves Photography and lucky for ME she is an amazing Hair Stylist.  We have resorted to bartering. She makes me Look great and in exchange she gets her walls stacked with great Images. 

And Seriously what MOM wouldn't want to barter for this?
