Briana and the Caddy meet the Sony A7 (Editorial Shoot)

With out fail Briana is a natural in front of  the camera and always is on point for her sessions. Of course, when you have a car of this caliber to use as the prop....it never hurts. Also she is the one who does all of her own Hair and Makeup, she is in school and almost finished her course for MUHA (Make up and Hair Artist).

Why I do what I do!

Why I do what I do!

 Memories of loved ones, plain and simple, is why I do what I do.  The main reason I got into photographing weddings was a mystery to me up until a couple of weeks ago when I saw something that made me stop and think: Why am I doing this? I thought and it hit me: Family and loved ones. This made think back to my grandparents being there for my Wedding. I was fortunate enough to have them there, my grandmother was battling a brain tumor at the time, but she wanted to see her only grandson walk down the isle. Less than 2 years later I lost both my grand parents.

It actually turned out even better. Lots of shade, sun rays coming thru trees and dandelions floating in the air, which made for some cool shots.

Carlsbad NM CavernFest 2016

Good Day Friends,

 

 Recently Carlsbad NM held their 1st ever annual CavernFest. This was to show what our  town has to offer to the tourists that visit us each year,  such as home cooked southwest meals (including our favorite green and red chilies),home grown vegetables,  arts, crafts, culture and good old hospitality. Of course our National Park "The Carlsbad Caverns".

 The day started off with a blessing from Pastor Dave (Thanks Dave for kicking it off the right way), he was also our MC thru-out the day with great commentary.  Mayor Dale Janway made a speech accompanied by awarding Karla Hamel for all her hard work putting together the event as the Director of the Carlsbad Mainstreet Project, which created the event and was sponsored by The City of Carlsbad.

Thru out the day there were Barbershop quartets, Bands and face painting. Accompanied with all the local business owners representing Carlsbad with booths and local items from Carlsbad for sale and to promote awareness of the community.

The day finished off with a concert with performances by The Henningsens and Little Texas.

(even a little rain didn't stop the event)

A heartfelt thank you goes to, The City of Carlsbad, Mayor Dale Janway, Karla Hamel,  Jason Shirley, Red Rocket Video, Curtis McKinney, Mosaic Potash all the other sponsors and all the volunteers who made this possible.

I'll leave you with slide show of the highlights from the day.

Now of those reading this post, please take care to not judge anyone who might be suffering from depression or anxiety. If you've never experienced it yourself, then you can know what it's like. This session was pretty as much  a therapy session for the both us and I must say it was nice to be able to step outside my boundaries of photography. It felt great to be able to help someone bring this to light and not have it hidden.

Jerrika

Recently I  did a photo session with a local model named Jerrika. Amazing model. She knows how to hit the poses and needs no direction. Easy to work with and her natural beauty shines thru. From what she explained to me is that this is her 1st shoot in 3 years or so. So it was nice to be able to get her back in front of a camera and she was happy to be back in front of the camera. So here for your viewing pleasure are some selections from the shoot.
