David + Jackie Engagement

Yesterday’s engagement session of David & Jackie Trejo is very close to my heart. David is like a son to me, I have known him all his life. Definitely a couple hand-picked by God. David and Jackie have been married for eight years now and have four children but never had a wedding ceremony. Next weekend Jackie will marry the man of her dreams and wear the dress she’s always imagined in an intimate wedding ceremony.

The Perfect Model

Fashion Style Photo Shoot ~ Finding the Ideal Location

Fashion style photo shoot was at the top of my priority list while on my journey to WPPI (Wedding Professional Photographer International) at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this past month.  I knew I was going to somehow do this desert fashion style photo shoot.  What I did not know was who, what or where. I first started researching great places to do the shoot out and around Las Vegas.  A place that was not too common.  A place that is unique.  A place that would be amazing.  With the help of one of my dear comrades, Randy Green, I was directed to the most ideal location.

Beauty really does show in the desert!

This place was almost like a photographer’s oasis in the desert, although it was actually a real life ghost town.  Yep, it is true!  Nelson, Nevada.  A place dating back to 1775 where the Spaniards  made the first discovery of gold in this little town they called El Dorado.

 

Fashion Style Photo Shoot ~Finding the Perfect Model

My next endeavor was to find a perfect model.  I searched and searched WPPI for two days. I scanned all the pretty models who were being photographed at the event for different vendors.  I gave a couple of them my card in case they might be interested or even have time.  I didn’t count on that as I knew they were probably pretty tired of modeling at the event for days.

Sun kissed skin with crystal blue eyes.

 

Fashion Style Photo Shoot ~ Found in Fashion Mall!

After spending some time at the WPPI convention, it was time to shop.  I headed over to Fashion Show Mall.  Little did I know I would find the perfect model walking out of the restroom.  I sort of chased behind her to catch her before I lost her!  I approached her with my idea, handed her my business card and assured her I was not a weirdo.  She smiled and said she would let me know.  Her friend, however, did not have a smile at all.  I can only imagine what she was thinking.

The hair and make-up artist must select the perfect model.

Hard Work for the Hair and Make-up Artist

A lot of hard work goes with being a Riverside hair and make-up artist. When styling a new look there is the process of making this vision come together.  The hair and make-up artist must first select the perfect model to wear the envisioned style.  Then selecting colors and inventing a sheik cut for the model.  The hair and make-up artist uses this model as a canvas to paint that new trend she is creating for girls and guys wanting a new hair fixation.

The Model Must Have the Right Face Shape

The model must have the right face shape to wear the cut.

Everyone has their own unique shape face.  Whether your face is round, triangle or square there is always a certain style of cut that is most complimenting to your face shape.

Hair and Make-up Artist & Photographer

The hair and make-up artist must choose a photographer that blends well together in style.  The photographer must be able to see the artist’s palate  and create that same image through the lens of the camera.  The photographer must then repaint the vision to explode into a new fashion trend.

All About Color

 

Children Photography / Love Kenny

Children photography includes props like my little red wagon.  Sometimes I bring it along because I know there is just something about boys and red wagons!

Kenny enjoys the ride!

This is my second time photographing Kenny.  This time is for his special birthday #2.
This little guy seemed to be infatuated with everything on the ground…..especially dirty leaves.  I guess to a kid who sees so close to the ground can be pretty curious as to what all those multi-colored things are all over the place. There are so many, so similar, yet not one alike!  Kenny picked up leaf after leaf.  So, pretty much my entire photo session with him was at his level….ground zero.

Sometimes children photography can be a little difficult.  I knew Kenny’s photo session was coming to an end when I noticed he was getting a little agitated with me.  Every time he looked at me and saw the camera in his direction, he yelled “NO”!!!!  He yelled, and yelled and yelled.  Too funny this little stinker, but too cute!

Kenny’s expressions and curiosity were priceless.  This is what makes children photography so wonderful!  xo

Dia de los Muertos ~ Riverside

“Dia de los Muertos”, (“Day of the Dead”) was alive and wild as ever as they danced through the streets of downtown Riverside.  The city celebrated their 9th annual tribute to the dead with music and dancing, candles, spirits, altars and parades.  The streets were packed with onlookers who came out to observe and participate in this out-of-the-ordinary event.  Loaded down with camera gear, I could barely squeeze through the tightly packed crowd to make my seat in the arena of Aztec dancers.  The Ballet Folklorico de Riverside was definitely the main attraction for this cultural event!  The dancers jumped and bowed to the spirits, circling the burning incense, taking in the scent and giving thanks to the Gods.  Their costume so vibrant and adorned with jewels.  Their faces painted to mirror the dead.  I love this group!
