Bye Bye...2009 :)

I'm sitting here and its about 20 mins til 2010 ushers in...I'm in a reflection mode for some strange reason. I will say this year has been a world wind for a lot of reasons. I've learned more than I knew the year before and I've struggled along the way in learning some of them but that's good too because what won't kill you will make you stronger...or something like that. I know that change is on the horizon and I'm so looking forward to embracing it. But in the meantime and in between time let me take a few more minutes to tell you about my awesome trip to California. I didn't mention a ton of stuff and even in this post I wont' be able to tell it all but here are just a few tidbits that happened while i was there. I won't bore you with too much blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I'll just do what i normally do, interject here and there...enjoy !

These are a few images I shot of some of the adorable couples at the Jasmine Star Workshop
this is Jessica and Mike. This couple will be going down the aisle soon...i'm sure of it :)

After the mini shoot on the beach we had dinner and Jasmine met up with us there. I know I've said this before but it was truly a thrill to meet Jasmine and get to know her. She is super awesome and so is her mother and hubby!!

I spent an amazing time with an old friend I hadn't seen in more years than I want to admit and I was totally appreciative of her and her husband's hospitality. My Friend Yolanda is such a sweet and giving person I wanted to say a "SPECIAL THANK YOU" for all you did for me while i was in Cali. She had the coziest accommodations for me :)
She welcomed me with a white rose.

We did A LOT of catching up and Yolanda took we through the Journey of her Marathon Maniac Club that she is apart of. Yolanda is awesome with her marathon and I'm so proud of her and her accomplishments. Yolanda continue to do you and I know you will reach your goal is 2010!!!

The Jasmine Star Workshop Continued...

Well, it's been a while i know since my last posting. Please accept my apologies for blogging out like that, but i must say it's been quite busy. I'm a work in progress of trying to blog more regularly.

As I mentioned in my last blog posting that my trip and experience was FABALISS! Jasmine, her husband JD and mother are such incredible great people! I tell you I learned a lot! The whole day was high energy for me! From Jasmine's opening remarks and experience of how she got into photography to her great business mindset. I get goose bumps and such inspiration just thinking about this trip. Well I'm not going to talk too much since its been a minute since my last posting. I'd rather you look at the my photos. I'll let them do the talking and I'll just interject in between!

here's where the workshop was held, very cozy, quaint, location that was very cool!

after lunch we got ready to go and shoot our hearts out. Here Jasmine was explaining how, what and why she does what she does. She challenged us not to just shoot but to create or begin to at least think about what would be your signature images and to think creatively about our style of shooting. I love challenges :) here are a few of my images.
