About Me

My photo
I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!

Wedding Weekend....

What a beautiful weekend this is going to be, the daughter of my cousin is getting married, and they have entrusted in me to be the photographer....oh no!!!!  As I have said before I am a professional photographer only in my heart, not in my talents, but I did take over a thousand pictures at a niece's wedding on Anna Maria Island last April, and I was so pleased with those photographs, that gives me encouragement.  This wedding however, is inside, a totally candle lighted church, in the evening, completely different than a day time beach wedding.  I want to make sure to capture every single precious moment for this young couple, and I pray to God that he helps me achieve that for them.

My daughter is in the wedding and she is going to attempt to attach her Flip to her bouquet of flowers, so as she is walking down the isle and during the ceremony be taping it up close and personal, without anyone knowing.  Can't get much closer than that to video a wedding...

I have my battery totally charged (and packing the charger of course),  4 different SanDisk, totalling 32 GB, 2 packages of 20 each AA batteries for my Speedlight, my diffuser oh and the camera! 

Wish me luck!
