Oh blog, how I have missed you! I am finally back and have every intention of posting on a more regular basis!
So. Today I am posting some recent shots from a wedding I had the privilege of shooting in Phoenix, Arizona! It was for my dear friend Cristina and her new husband Shane. The location of this wedding was at the Four Seasons and was absolutely stunning. Here is a quick sneak peak! Enjoy!
52/365 Project! Time to start a new photography project... Last year I attempted to do a 365 project-one photo a day for 365 days. Needless to say I only made it to March! This year, I will shoot for one a week for a year. The personal goal of this is to work on one technical skill each week, thus improving my skills. Some, like lighting, may last several weeks, but still one image post per week. Stay tuned for week number one!
Wow! It's almost here...your senior year! It's time to enjoy being "top dog"! Finally! There is much to do your senior year. There are exams, college and jobs to think about. This is also the year to have fun! You will probably be taking fewer classes (hopefully!), thinking about prom, preparing for graduation celebrations and building enthusiasm about beginning your adult life. It really is an exciting time!
It has been a terribly long time since I have posted on my blog. During the holidays, I was managing a retail store, which was crazy-busy at that time of year, despite the economy! Since 2009 rolled around, I have transitioned into my home-based photography business by leaving my full time retail job. I now have much more time to invest in my current clients, as well as prospective future clients! This has been an excellent decision for me, and I haven't looked back.
I am finally taking a few minutes to update my WAY OVERDUE, sadly ignored blog. I thought I would post a few pictures from my trip to Italy with my girlfriends this past July. My dear friend Alva qualified for this cruise to Italy, Croatia and Malta and invited me and her niece, Angela. We were gone for about nine days and saw some amazing things. All in all, we visited Taormina-Sicily, Valetta- Malta, Dubrovnik-Croatia, Naples-Italy and Livorno/Florence Italy.
Malta is an amazing island south of Sicily and we visiting a fishing village bordering a breathtaking city built of limestone. Dubrovnik, Croatia was my favorite place and was the only place we ventured out on our own. Picture Cobblestone streets, neat little pizza places tucked into alleys that seemed to go on forever, people hanging clothes off their balconies full of colorful flowers, and great shopping! In Italy one of the places that stood out for me was Cinque Terre (on the Florence port), an enchanting colorful village carved into steep rocks by the sea.
We visited wineries, glass- blowing factories, fishing villages, beaches, pizza joints, gelato shops, an active volcano and many, many shops! We rode on coaches, trains, jet-foils, water taxis, chair liftsand a funicular (railway).
