My Brother's Legacy ♥️

It was raining but we had a plan because not getting it done was NOT an option.  With the time constraints and the amount of people involved there was no rescheduling, we had to do it. 
It was right here right before this shot. That's when it happened.  It was a Moment...An Emotion so strong that I couldn't contain it. As I stood there in front of all of them watching the chaos as everyone was trying find their place.  As Erika tried to help get the little one's in order and Jojo was asking if she was my assistant. That's when it happened, The tears just came...Because all I could think at that moment was that HE should have been there RIGHT THERE in the Middle because this is His Legacy, his Children, his Grandchildren and his Wife. I am not sure they understood what was happening and all I could manage to say is wow how you guys have grown. I then turned away and took a deep breath and said this is for you 💕

The last time I did this with them them was on a thanksgiving day way back when my brother was still with us. A lot has changed since then. We can't go back and change the past but we can look to a brighter and better tomorrow and we can Miss HIM, We are Allowed. 

Here are the Results 

I am a Very Proud Auntie. Each one unique in their own special way, but each one loved just the same.

Happy Saturday!

Live Simply ♥️

It takes a little bit of courage to do a Boudoir Shoot. I will say it's one of those things that until you do it, you just don't know how empowering it can be. I offer it all the time and I get just about every excuse in the book. I will just let you know that there is no reason to wait. The time is NOW.  

When the decision is made and it actually happens there are no regrets. Instead, I get things like... "I should have decided to do this a while ago" "What was I waiting for" "I can't believe that's me" 

I Love doing Boudoir Shoots, it's one of my faves. It's something about the look and joy on the clients face or the "WEEEPPPPAA who is That"  that I sometimes get. I get to say this is YOU in a way that you can't possibly see yourself in the mirror.  The feeling that I get from encouraging women and making them feel the very best is actually encouraging me at the very same time.  Here are a few images from a recent shoot, it was 3 years in the waiting but finally came to pass.

The Other Side...

If you know me, you know I am a glamour girl.  I Live for it! So on occasion I like to get my photos done too. It's a somewhat difficult task, not because my friends aren't great Photographers, But because I am not the one looking through the lens.  I can give anyone the tools I have and teach anyone how to control my camera. What I can Not give them is my point of view. It's just not possible and that is how it works. While posing I might have an image in my head and the photographer something completely different. In the end it usually works out even though it's a lot of hard work being on the other side.  The Most important part I think, is that the person being photographed is as comfortable as possible. 

There is usually a whole lot of clowning around, taking selfies like I don't have a professional camera in front of me, but also a whole lot of Love. I apologize for being difficult to anyone that has had to photograph me ;) 

Here's a few of the results..
 The Clowning Around..
The Snapchat Selfie with filter is a must! 

Then there is the One Image that Rocks and Makes me feel amazing :) It was totally the purpose of this shoot, since this Birthday was #Fiercely 46 

Thanks to Igdalia Medina Photography for putting up with a difficult client :) Love You!!! ♥️
