Yadira’s Quinceañera

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Norma called me last month to inquire about photographing Yadira’s Quinceañera at the Pioneer Event Center in Grand Prairie. I was so excited to hear from her especially since I had just finished Jazmine’s party a couple of weeks before, which was held at the same location. When I arrived I immediately found the beautiful birthday girl in her gown surrounded by tons of well-dressed teens. Soon after I was able to locate Norma, also dressed in gorgeous evening attire. We quickly discussed the plans for the evening and I got set up and ready to shoot. My part of the night began with candid shots of the guests. For the most part, I find that guests either pose and want to get their picture taken or they cover their face and “shoo” me away. After about 30 minutes Yadira danced with her brother and then her father. It became very emotional as Yadira teared up while dancing with her father and then was comforted by her mother as she wiped away tears. But those tears were nothing in comparision to the ones that came as Norma and her sister spoke about Yadira. Norma even brought a card which I believe was made by Yadira when she was younger. Norma’s voice cracked as she read from the card and at times had to pause to catch her breath. It was touching to watch their emotions. Afterward the tears dried up quickly as the dancing began. Everyone took to the floor… even Grandma! It was a wonderful party… I hope you had a great night Yadira! Happy Birthday!!!

Miss J’s Party!!

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

The Pioneer Event Center was CRAZY a few weekends ago and Miss J celebrated her 16th birthday. Everyone was dressed in their best and partying hard! I’ve never attended a Quinceañera so I was extremely excited to get to photograph this one. I had NO idea how much fun it was going to be. They even had live performances, one of which was by a local dance troupe. Very awesome time!

Mother and Son at the Arboretum

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I met Mia and little H at the arboretum last week. Thank goodness it didn’t rain again all weekend. I think Mia and I rescheduled due to rain 4 times! Despite the rains, we were able to get some fantastic images before H got his pants dirty. 🙂 Mia, you are simply gorgeous!

Baking up a Baby with Tiffany!

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Tiffany emailed me last month with a 5-part list of ideas which were totally intriguing. When she arrived last week I don’t know if I truly expected what was to enter but it was basically a grocery store! I am am sooooo glad because we had a BLAST!!!  And I can definitely say that I won’t forget this session. I absolutely love when one of my clients come with their own vision and Tiffany took this one ALL the way! I have only included a few samples from this session because there were WAY too many to show. Congratulations Tiffany… I can’t wait to meet your new bun!
