Central Park Portrait Session: Valadez Family

Last year when I lived in the city I had the opportunity to bond with my cousin’s family and since then they have added another member to their already cute family! Mario’s dad and my mom are siblings and my cousin’s son is the fourth Mario Valadez in our family. I think it’s fascinating to see generations pass and how genetics and family traits are still very dominant. I’m blessed to have them close by and get to see their family grow. When Nora asked me to take photos of them to document their time in the city I was beyond thrilled and nervous at the same time. I wanted their photos to be perfect! We both agreed that it had to be in Central Park and what better time then in the fall to capture the beautiful foliage.

Get ready for some adorable photos filled with laughs and sweet moments!

The joy in Mayito’s face is priceless.

He loves his sister very much!

And because The Bow Bridge is iconic Central Park we ventured to get some photos there too.

Daddy’s little girl

And of course I had to get some of the lovebirds on their own. Mayito was doing something funny while I was holding Isabel and taking this photo. Talk about multitasking.:)

And just in case you haven’t had enough cuteness I’ll leave you with this one.

Thanks for visiting the blog. Be sure to leave a comment.:)

Chicago Senior Session: Estefany

Please don’t hate me for taking so long to blog…LIFE keeps getting in the way! Though that is not an excuse. Thankfully I have been busy this spring with work and school. I have several sessions to blog!:)

Meet Estefany, a senior at Elk Grove High School! This gorgeous and talented soon-to-be Freshman at Robert Morris University just happens to be one of my many cousins who live in Illinois. While I was there last fall we went out to the city and basked in the beautiful weather and took photos of course!

Steph: These next couple of years will be some of the best! Enjoy them and don’t forget to study too! 😉 So proud of you prima!

Here are a couple of my favorites from her session!

Houston Portrait Photography: Anthony

If you need a musician for a dinner party or any social event, Anthony Caceres is the man to call. This is the second time I get to photograph him for his musical releases and it definitely takes me out of my element of photographing couples and families. The first time, we shot on location with natural lighting. I’m glad he called me back for another session. Plus listening to him play and sing while I shoot is a bonus!! Here are my favorites from the session taken at Fedora Lounge in West University.
