I wanted to share this holiday card that I designed for my friend. Capturing their holiday photos & designing their Christmas card with the photos made me realize how much I love what I do for a living. When given the oppurtunity to capture a special moment in time, it's so rewarding. I count my blessings knowing I've found something that is meaningful & in return, if it brought some sense of hope, smile or a tear to another is what life is all about.
Another e-session at El Dorado park. I continue to find new areas in the park that offer a majestic setting. The location is perfect for sunsets; the light reflects on the ponds and trees...everything seems to glow including Susana & James. They have been super busy with new jobs, dealing with escrow and planning a wedding. Through it all they managed to enjoy the day and enjoy each other's company. Holding hands and stealing kisses as the sun sets is romantic and therapeutic. It shows in their pictures. We were the last one's there and security had to kick us out.
Zeny & Anita live in Florida but decided to have their wedding in Long Beach. Our conversations took place via email and we did not meet until 5 days before their engagement session. They wanted a "nature" look and feel for their engagement photos. I did not realize how beautiful the park is and it's right down the street from where I live. It was such an honor to be part of such a momentous chapter in their lives. Their wedding took place Nov. 28th and they are flying back to Florida this week. I'm looking forward to sharing some of their wedding photos here soon.
