It's amazing how fast time flies. I can't believe it, another year and another niece graduating! Is this becoming a new theme for me, to get old and watch the world grow up right before my eyes?!? There's gotta be a way to slow it down...

It's seems like only yesterday she was a little girl. Now she's a woman. At least I know that, regardless of all the complications and dangers all around us nowadays, it feels good to know that she's grown up with a refreshingly wonderful and pure amount of sensibilities. Looking back, I don't think I've ever seen her get mad. Not once. Wow!

Well enough of that. Now I need to get back to figuring out a way to slow down time... or find the fountain of youth... whichever's easier. Ugh...

Maria wanted to get some maternity portraits done but was on doctors' orders not to leave the house. So what did we do? We brought the studio to her! After all, if you can’t bring the client to the studio, why not bring the studio to the client! And believe it or not, this was all done in her kitchen! Hehe…

Cristal & Michael

Love has no boundaries. That’s what I learned from these two. Whatever it may be: time, age, differences, difficulties, work, family. Love prevails. And that’s the way it should be!
