Artist at heart

Posted on: Friday, March 20, 2015

Beautiful things in life inspires me. It’s been awhile since I painted anything. I bought new watercolor paint, but my days are filled with meetings, running my business and balancing my personal life. Soon I will have a workshop to answer all business questions and maybe help others out with their business.
I’m no expert at camera equipments and techniques, so I’m hoping not a lot of people will ask me about that. I will answer what I can. I use the most basic camera and lenses to get what I need (Canon Mark 3, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, 24-105mm, 70-200mm). I tried out different lenses that people recommended, but always stuck to the same ones that I really like, I think that I use the 50mm the most and 70-200mm at weddings. I use Photoshop & Lightroom to edit my photos. For fun things, I shoot with a Contax 645 with 80mm lens. I really adore the soft look that film brings, however, right now I cannot absorb the cost if I shoot with the film SLR for clients.

Speaking of inspiration, I was in Santa Barbara last weekend and the scenery was definitely beautiful. It was my first visit there. I was grateful for the incredible hosts Eve and Rich, they are angels on earth.  Some random pictures from my phone :)

New year, new look

Welcome to my new and improved layout of my site after 5 years, please bare with me I’m still working on it.  Life is at least constantly busy.  I’ve started a new workout training with Arnold along with the elevation training mask to prep me for Mount Everest.  I’ve been waiting my whole life to go, actually I never thought I’d get there, but hopefully I will LOL.  I’m so blessed and grateful to get to be doing what I want to do in this life.

My wedding and newborn photography is coming along.  I know there’s still a lot for me to learn, I’m making my own syllabus to learn it.  I’m used to home schooling myself.  Since I’ve photographed for so many weddings, I thought that planning my own would be easy.  Nope, I haven’t even found a venue yet, but I am grateful to have met many vendors in the industry which will be a huge help.

I’m looking forward to seeing my Toronto twin and my bestfriend in NYC in April!  I’m finally traveling again after a hiatus.
