A Taste of My Heritage: Guachinango, Jalisco, Mexico

Guachinango , Jalisco, Mexico. This year I started working on a personal goal of mine. While I can’t give a lot of the details right now, part of it was me visiting my hometown of Guachinango, Jalisco, Mexico. A place that will always be home.  And just to be clear, I said “Guachinango” not to be confused with “Huachinago”. Unless you are from Guachinango or Jalisco, Mexico, you probably never heard of this place. Guachinango is a small town nestled in centralView full post »

Kathy and Miguel: Eugene, Oregon and Destination Photographer

Kathy is from California and a few weeks ago she surprised her boyfriend, Miguel and came to visit him in Eugene, Oregon.  Their long distance relationship makes it hard for them to spend quality time together.   She wanted to make sure that this time around their time together was captured and I was delighted that she contacted me to capture the essence of their love. The day was absolutely beautiful!  Kathy brought with her the California sunshine and we could have not asked for aView full post »

Miss Alondra | Eugene Oregon and Destination Photographer

As many of you know I was in Mexico for a month.  Guachinango Jalisco to be exact. I was visiting family and working on a project dear to my heart.  I will be talking and posting about this at a later time.   While there I had the opportunity of photographing some very special people whom I love.  They always go out of their way to make me feel at home and are the nicest people.  I think it’s also fair to say that they spoil me rotten! One of them is my beautiful niece Alondra.  She andView full post »

Smith Rock Styled Photo Shoot: Brianna | Eugene Oregon and Destination Photographer

My Oh My! Can this lady be any more beautiful? I just absolutely love photographing Brianna. She is beautiful inside and out. When Brianna was a teenager she would always give me coupons for free babysitting. It was her way of giving back and blessing  others. It’s hard to believe that this lady is not the little girl that once use to babysit for me. When Brianna and I met to discuss this photo shoot, I couldn’t believe how much we had in common. She knew exactly what I wanted forView full post »

Smith Rock Styled Photo Shoot: Courtney | Eugene Oregon and Destiantion Photographer

Anytime I photograph this girl, I am guaranty to have some fun and tons of laughter! Courtney is one of my go to models. Whenever I have a crazy concept running in my mind, I know I can always count on Courtney. You would think that modeling is what Courtney does for a living because she is just a natural and knows how to work the camera. But in reality Courtney is a college student and youth and worship leader at our church. She is beautiful, fun, and adventures. I am glad she is myView full post »

Both,  Cody and Cameron have autism.  I asked Christi if she would share her experience in raisingView full post »

Hannah: A Styled Photo Shoot at Smith Rock, Oregon | Eugene Photographer

So much  beauty to share with you today. I love when I photograph just for fun! A while back I thought it would be fun to do a photo session at the dessert. Oregon has so many beautiful places so why not take advantage of them and try something different?  Back in October, six of us planned a girls day and headed to the dessert for a day of fun! We weren’t sure what to expect but we had plenty to work with. Our van was packed with clothes, make up, jewelery, props, food, and who canView full post »

A Gift For Generations to Come | Eugene Photographer

It was just another ordinary day. It’s Tuesday afternoon and my daughter, Vanessa, and I are gathering her stuff for violin lessons. I asked my son, Jeremy if he wanted to go with us and maybe let me do a little mini session of him while Vanessa was in class. Asking my son to let me photograph  him is like asking him to do his chores. To my surprise he was willing and even brought an extra shirt and pair of shoes with him. I scored big time! While Vanessa was making beautiful music at theView full post »
