SOOO beyond in love with Yvette & Randy's Maternity session in one of Divine Light's super secret spots! Yvette and Randy are just the sweetest ever, and we ended up having a blast at their baby shower as well (thanks for the invite guys, best baby shower evaaaa!)!
Yesenia had her first session with us about 3 or 4 years back, and its incredible how quickly her family has grown up! She wanted to get some photos of her babygirl for her Baptism this weekend, and also incorporate some much needed family portraits as well. Babygirl was soo shy to begin, but we still did what we do, and managed to grab some amazing smiles from her! From these shots, you never would have guessed this was the case, right?! Ultimately she gave us hugs and kisses and said goodbye with a smile. It's sessions like this that truly leave us with an amazing sense of accomplishment! We'd definitely like to give the glory to God on this one... not going to lie, I thought this would be the first "L" we would take. But as always, God came through. Thanks to the man up above for delivering us some magical smiles! Lol! :)
Yvette knew Roy from school and the many years they both played soccer. They are both huge lovers of soccer and we really enjoyed reminiscing and catching up during their session! Although, it is still up in the air about whether Roy was part of Yvette's Quinceanera party or not (Roy says he wasn't, but the fact that they can't remember is hilarious! lol). Yvette and her sweet little family was a pleasure to work with, and not to mention she makes a drop dead GORGEOUS pregnant mommy! I loved how much she trusted me in deciding the details leading up to her session, and how easy going she was. It made for great chemistry, and even better shots. Take a look!
I met Anissa while shooting her best friend's wedding (we had a blast shooting Bianca's wedding, her bridal party was amazing). At the time, it was just a twinkle in Mike & Anissa's eyes that made me think... they were next. So needless to say I was super excited when they contacted me to not only photograph their wedding, but also VIDEO as well! Her words, "I wouldn't trust anyone else". Uh, can I have like 238,947,689 brides like you?! A creative's dream come true is when a bride comes to them saying I love your work, I trust you, and i'm booking you for YOU. HA! YASSS! Not only did her engagement session come out beyond amazing... but they selected our top Divine Light Product Collection to showcase their love. Professional grade products, displaying the images I spent hours working on... looking exactly as they should, for the world to see? THANK YOU LORD JESUS FOR AMAZING CLIENTS like Anissa & Mike! You can see their products on the next blog post.
For those that have been following us for some time, you know that we are almost always CRAZY BUSY! To be honest, I LOVE being busy! I can't explain it, but I go nuts if i'm not! Oddly enough though, I was actually pretty excited once our busy season was over because I've had a vision for an outdoor boudoir session for a while! I had a model call, and selected one of our previous brides to be our star. We had such a blast, and i'm so glad we were able to make this happen! Seriously one of my favorite sessions to date (maybe because I get to drink champagne with you... HAHA!)! Speaking from personal experience, I can say that every woman should make an effort to experience their very own boudoir session! If you haven't, I say DO IT! I promise you won't regret it. ;)
I've been blessed to be a Sunday school teacher for New Beginnings Community Church for the past 10 years (WOW! You know you're getting old when you start counting by decades haha!). Anyways, at this point I've had the pleasure of sharing the love of Jesus with so many children... some of which are the Aguirre family kids! I remember Antonio when he was barely making words, and my sweet sweet Leilah since nursery! I was so excited when Mommy asked us to capture some family shots of them in the newly bloomed poppy's that took So Cal by surprise. We definitely got our work out in, but it was worth it to capture this rare bloom! Take a look!
I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived on location (30 min early as usual lol) and took a nice walk to take a look around... to find... a beautiful Cherry Blossom tree! I immediately knew that this session would be amazing, and I was right. The right lighting, a beautiful model couple, and great vibes created a beautiful engagement session. Alonso and Johanna knew the minute they met that their love was a forever kind of love. If love at first sight exists, it was definitely the case here. Can't wait to shoot their wedding!
