Road Trip part 3 : Lake Tahoe.

October 28, 2010 | Post a Comment

Hey guys!

I’m excited to show off my final batch of photos from Jeannie’s and my mini-road trip; I finished them quick too!

Our last day on the road ended up taking us north from Yosemite to Lake Tahoe, which is one of the biggest and clearest lakes I’ve ever been to.  It also led us to a side of the lake less visited called Emerald Bay, which was surrounded by hundreds of trees in the middle of their fall transformation.  I’ve always been a huge fan of the leaves changing color for the new season, so I was basically in heaven with all of the colors that were going on around me.

Hope you all enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them ;)

Road Trip part 2 : Yosemite.

Hi everyone!

I’ve been trying my best to finish editing all the photos I got on my and Miss Jeannie’s mini-road trip, but I’ve been a little behind lately because of all the photo shoots I’ve been on (which is definitely a good thing).

Today I’d like to bring you all the photos I took while Jeannie and I were actually in Yosemite National Park on the second day of our road trip.  Driving a terrifyingly gigantic truck (which I am definitely not used to, since I drive a crackerjack box of a car), we made our way into and around the park and picked up a few awesome shots on the way.

I hope you all enjoy my photos from Yosemite National Park!

(If you look closely at the base of the tree, there is an itty bitty Jeannie)

Road Trip part 1 : Mono Lake

Hi again, all!

I have some photos to share with you all from a road trip I took with the extremely talented Jeannie Muritas ( – go check her out!) following my time spent in San Francisco.

Jeannie was nice enough to drive all the way up from Orange County to San Francisco to pick me up to go on a three day road trip to.. well, we weren’t quite sure where exactly we were going at first.  I ended up mentioning Yosemite, since it was only 6 hours east, and as it turned out neither of us had ever been there, so that’s where we headed.

The first day of our trip took us to Mono Lake, possibly one of the oldest lakes in Northern America, and there I managed to get a number of photos to share with you all today.

Hello :)

So I have a short little post to share with you guys today.  A couple of weeks ago, I took my first plane ride (in 12 years) up to San Francisco to visit Matt’s little sister Lindsay at her new apartment on 19th Street.

Lucky for me, the flight was only an hour, and although going into the airport, my nerves were as good as shot, I quite enjoyed myself once we made it to our takeoff.  The feeling of flying is quite an amazing thing, and being one who’s been doing most of her traveling by car recently, it was a pretty exciting change; I definitely can’t wait to do it again!

Although we were there for 3 days, and attended a number of memorable events, I only used my camera for the first few hours after we arrived at Lindsay’s apartment.  Lindsay and her roommate Kadee had just adopted a pair of kittens, so of course I had to snap a number of photos of the adorable duo.  So for those of you prepared for a mega-kitten-adorableness-overload, here ya go!

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

October 2, 2010 | Post a Comment

Hello :)

It’s been such a long time since I’ve had a chance to update my blog, I’m posting two events in rapid succession.

The El Cholo Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on the 25th of August on the newly remodeled outside cantina patio as a celebration for the completion of construction.  City officials passed out awards of excellence to one of the restaurant’s owners, mariachis strummed their guitars, blared their trumpets, and sang, as the celebrating commenced.  Restaurant regulars, first-time guests, and employees all got to share in the fun and it turned out to be a memorable and eventful evening.

I hope you all enjoy the photos from El Cholo’s Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!

20+ years employees.

Hello again.  I need to post this.

I recently finished a project I had been working on for roughly a month, which I would like to share with you all today – El Cholo’s employees who have been with the company for twenty years or more.  The restaurant takes great pride in the employees who have been with the company for an extended period of time, so when all the employees with 20 years or more had been compiled into a neat little list, I was hired to visit with each one of them for a portrait shoot.  After a month of coinciding my schedule with thirteen different employees at the restaurant, I’ve finally captured a portrait of each employee on that list that will be displayed in the lobby area of the El Cholo in La Habra for everyone to see.

So now that it’s finally complete, prints have been ordered, and delivered, I figured I would share with you all the portraits that will be hung on El Cholo’s “wall of fame” in the near future.
