Valeria's Bridal portraits! :)

We had some great fun in taking a few moments about a month before her June wedding to capture some sweet bridals of Valeria!!!!  I was looking forward to working in a few new spaces - and a space I had worked before actually had the water going this time.  (thus the waterfall like appearance) 

I am happy to share these now...and always excited to get opportunities to spoil a bride whilst she preps for her wedding day....sometimes it is all about the prep!  (hair, makeup, veils, etc)  She ended up using a different veil for the wedding (which yes, i loved that one!)....but overall, her lovely shoes/boots were so cute...and the dress just had the fun little accents of lace and beading. :)

Thanks Valeria!!!!

Teasers from the Chavez wedding!!!!

I am always BLESSED to see the variety of weddings/ceremonies out there where couples express themselves in culture, family, love and unions.  :)

This wedding is no different!  I think this has to be my first TRULY almost all-out Mexican wedding!  I've been to a at least 2 others, both vastly different in ceremony and celebration.   The Mariachi were KILLING it tonite!!!!!!!  Amazing, almost their own orchestra. :)  The cake was astoundingly huge and yummy...the couple were amazingly patient as I dragged them around to create some fun images. :)  We even had a bit of down time in between ceremony/ us a time to re-charge after being out in the 90-plus SUMMER weather going on!!!

Here are some quick-lick-fast teasers from out of camera tonite....I had such a fun time...just watching and observing...smiles all around the room and much singing and celebration!

Thanks you two, and CONGRATS!

It's not a good photo shoot......UNTIL!

you forget to watch for ANT HILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm just known for stepping into a few dramatic events in my life...even on vacation...I somehow got bit on my lawn chair by a few ants. LOL :):):):)

Well yesterday's shoot, no exception...and i was SO careful....or so i thought!!!
But I cannot complain, it is really quite hilarious to me and gives me nonstop stories to tell or laugh about.

So for today, it was realized it was definitely the fire ants....
and it was a mix of THINKING it was the dried out high grass/weeds v. the sting of an ant bite!
gotta love every moment. :)

I'll show you a couple of pics from the shoot when i can....
but for now - herez my swollen left ankle!

Makes Me Happy Night of Blues.

Here are some fun images I took tonite with the rain as it is....always and i mean ALWAYS....makes for fun pictures...and yea, driving too.  :)

The past is just as squiggly as the future.  One long beam of squiggly light.
Everyone's paths, some close, some far, some merge together and some stay apart.
I make my own lightning.

WHO is running your "Sick Cycle Carousel" ???? - something to think about, Inspiration of the day.

I had an amazing discussion today....and the last question we discussed was....
WHAT HAS YOU STUCK????????????

I know there are ton of things we desire out of this life...and there is a reason why you might not be seeing these things happen.  You could have a LOT of unresolved issues that you either don't know about, or undoubtedly some BELIEFS about yourself that stop you from moving forward.  You could have a very distorted view of yourself and a nasty attitude.  Maybe you dont' even know what you want.  Wow. 

I've noticed a trend in stubborness, or refusal to see TRUTH for what it is.  We don't wanna admit we could be wrong...therefore we keep believing that truth over and over...and never see our dreams come true.

who is running YOUR "sick cycle carousel' know the things you do over and over and over and over thinking at some point you will move forward. I only see one person down there. (song from Lifehouse)

You have some choices you can make.  You cannot blame ANYONE for stopping you.  You do NOT pass go, and collect $200 for that.  You are the only one stopping you.

The 2nd question AFTER that...was WHAT ACTION WILL YOU get unstuck....I've seen way too many folks sit around and whine for 10 years about something they don't have....or something they can' do....and then 10 years go by, nothing changes.  You need to take a step back and realize, if you really wanted it - you would make it happen.  The story you tell yourself could be a lie.

Think about something you DESIRE in your life right now.
Why don't you have it, why aren't you doing it?
Fear and Doubt will always be there, we know this now.  So, what is stopping you?
Why do you prefer the round and round v. moving forward?

Your self-worth can determine the outcomes in your life too.  If you look at yourself and deem yourself unworthy of life and love...then that is exactly what you get.  You spend years searching for what was there all along, just too blind to see and denying yourself the very thing that can set you free.


Take a few moments, seriously...what "sick cycle carousel" has you going in circles?

What action can you take TODAY to make something happen in a new direction?
A life of purpose!

Talk amongst yourselves.

Then go DO IT.  Take action.
