Had a fun Senior portrait session with Nicholas this past weekend. It definitely was entertaining to say the least! As well as playing basketball, he also played volleyball and was the Team Captain for his high school's volleyball team, which explains the jersey.

As far as the location, we couldn't find an indoor place to go to for the volleyball stuff, so we went to the beach instead. We were able to get some great action shots and finished with some photographs from a path that led from the beach back to the street.

Jumping Rope

Hmmm... How many excuses have I come up with to keep me from exercising? Lessee: I have an appointment. I don't have time. I gotta cook. I gotta clean. I gotta watch the kids. I gotta watch the game. I have too much work. I have no clothes for exercising. I can't afford it. I'm happy with my weight. I'm too fat. I'm too depressed. I'm too old. I have a backache. I have a headache. I have a hang nail. I have flat feet. I can't see my feet. I'm too tired.

Excuses excuses excuses!!! I really need to start exercising! I'll start tomorrow...

Had an awesome time with a portrait session that we had this past weekend. First we photographed Gabriel for his upcoming Hollywood themed 15th birthday party. Then we had a portrait session with his whole family including his nephew and nieces. Altogether it came out to 4 families. Definitely a full day!

There was one thing that I did notice while photographing Gabriel though was that Miami Vice look. I may be getting old and not really up on the new trends but is this look making a comeback? Hmmm...

If nobody knows by now, I take a camera everywhere with me. From the playground, to the movies, to the restaurant, or even a long tiring day at the laundromat it's with me. Granted I don't take any food shots though. Heaven knows there's enough of those going around the internet.

But the one thing that I love doing is photographing life. Whether it's my life or someone elses special moment, I enjoy seeing and capturing them. It's like my memory pill. Once I see an image that I was a part of, those thoughts, feelings, and emotions all come rushing back beginning from the moment that I clicked the shutter.

On this Cinco de Mayo, I can't help but think of the innocence of our children. When we were young, we didn't know or care about color, or nationality, or even how much somebody had. We didn't know what hate or intolerance was. We just wanted to play together.

Then we got older and we learned... we were taught about our differences... we were taught hate... we were taught intolerance.

So maybe if we forget all that we were taught... our differences, hatred, and intolerance, maybe we will play together again... and become young again too...
