The other day I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful young family, who happens to be my “Framily.” Our dear friends are expecting their 2nd child and Alessandra’s baby sister or brother. Grandma Elsa wanted the family to have their  photos taken and  I had a great time doing it.

We used both Pink and Blue paint 🙂

52 Clicks

Posted: January 5, 2012 in Photography

52 Clicks will be the name of my 52 week project. I’ve often toyed with the idea of creating either a 365 or 52 week but I’m realistic enough to know that I am not disciplined enough for a 365. There will be days when I will not feel up to it and I just don’t need an added stress. I really love the flexibility of 7 days. Lol! So having made the decision late last year I started on creating my first piece. I really wanted to do something than didn’t really play out and I won’t mention what it is…just in case I figure out how I can do it. So anyway, remembered a photo that Brooke created recently named Keeper of Keys and so that’s how my photo idea was created. I decided that I was going to layer myself a dress with flowers.

What have I done?

Sounds scary…well maybe not so much! 😀 This blog will just be about what I did during the holiday with photography.

My daughter Kory doesn’t really like to pose for me since the time I dropped her from a stool…long story! I should rephrase that, she will not pose for a creative edit.  (especially one that includes levitation) But she wanted some pics with the Christmas tree before I put it away and so here they are 🙂 I should take some of this back because she did pose for me. I think she was in a giving mood when I asked her to do it for me. There is a reason why I veiled her face…she doesn’t like to be associated with my craziness :/ Oh well!!!

Ghost of Christmas Past

And these are the ones she requested…

I have been working on a set of photos using urban girls dressed in vintage dresses at one of the local parks in the Bronx. And so over the Holiday break I photographed my Goddaughter Bryanna who I had not seen in an extremely long time. She has grown into such a beautiful young lady….

Her Journey

When she's Alone...

I Solemnly Swear

Since I started in photography January 09, I’ve been searching for someone near me that felt the same way about photography that I did. And I have found people who shared my passion but as my preference in what I created changed, I longed to find someone who loved self-portraits and more conceptual and out of the box shoots. I finally have found Laura who lives in Nyc and shares my love of Fine Art Portraiture. We went into Pelham Bay Park on a day when it had rained during the night…so can you say mud :/            Mud is a difficult thing for a city girl like myself. For the first time, I walked barefoot in mud and all other kind of nasties. My legs were scratched up by these nasty thorns that were everywhere. But I survived and was able to get a couple of pics. Below is my favorite from that day and it’s of Laura!

High Tea, anyone?

Setting up a shot

When I hold on...

The menacing tree 😀

So this last self portrait was a bit tricky…only because I had to walk with my flip-flops in the mud. If you notice my feet are not dirty because I remembered to bring wipes 😀     There are a few shots that I missed and as a result the photo is not perfect in my eyes but I stepped out of my comfort zone and it’s important to show an end result. I wanted to show this amazing tree that appeared to be coming out and grabbing anything that would get close.

I had fun this staycation capturing such great images…I can’t wait to see what 2012 will bring.
