Carla pre-session

The pre-session is a photo session that I offer complimentary to all my wedding  couples and quinceaneras.  There are many benefits from doing that. One of the reason I like to do a pre-session with my clients is that they get to know me, get to know my personality so at the big event day I will no longer be a stranger taking pictures at their party.
Here is a pre-session and I choose to post only the black and white ones. At the end of this post I will post a link to all images.

Kids’ moments

Some pics just of the kids at their family session. I like to watch what kids are doing. Some of their moments are precious to register with photography.

The parents said: Kiss her! Kiss her! I don’t think she liked the idea.

It’s a great time to practice some of my new dance moves….

Oh Girls! Wanna have fu…un! Oh Girls! Wanna have fu…un…

May I have a dance you you?   Oh! Of course!(giggles)

Thanks for visiting!

Daniel part 1

I love colored photos.

I used to tease a friend of mine that likes black and white because they are easier to make. lol.

Here are some high contrasted black and white photos of the little Daniel, his mom, his dad, and his grandma inside of their house.

I will post the colored ones in the part2.

Thanks for visiting.

some portraits with the 50mm 1.4

A new friend/photographer let me borrow his 50MM 1.4 and his Canon 5D today

We went to the park with the family and took some photographs.

I loved it! Shooting with the highest aperture making the subject on focus and blurring the background.

Here is my wife and her friend Adolfina

above is Eli eating watermelon and below is Zekie that is now 11 months old
