My son absolutely hates posing and photos. But I was lucky to get a couple of photos during Easter and during our Summer vacation to Sacramento to share it with you. Not many people know about my private life and I don’t post much about us. My only son is 8 years old. He is an artist. He loves to paint and draw.

RIP Andy Lopez/ Santa Rosa ca/marcha

I got very involved in Andy’s case since day 1..the case broke my hearth and since day 1 and I attended all the marchs..I met a lot of people there: Andy’s parents, his family and friends. People from the media and other parents who lost kids the same way. I can talk about the case and the things that went on during the marchs. I can tell you every thing becuase I was there and I have videos and photos. I can talk about it forever but I only talk about it with the people who care and ask.
Me partio el corazon el caso de Andy y atendi todas las marchas desde el primer dia. Conoci mucha gente: los padres de Andy, sus amigos y familya. Tambien gente que trabaja en las noticias y otros padres que perdieron sus hijos de la misma manera. Pudiera hablar por horas acerca del caso y contar todo lo que paso porque tengo videos, fotos pero solo me gusta hablar de esto con aquellos que preguntan o les interesa.

fbandy20Hard to believe this happened here. I took my camera and phone and attended a few protests, because this is how I tell a story with my photos. I also met Andy’s parents and gave them a hug. Very sad story.

Luther Burbank (Home and Gardens)

How lucky am I to live close to this garden and house?! This is a very popular garden in my area. Lots of visitors from all over the world and photographers visit Luther Burbank  house and gardens every day. Many of my sessions take place here. Thank you Luther Burbank I find peace and lots of inspiration here.

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul.”

“Listen patiently, quietly and reverently to the lessons, one by one, which Mother Nature has to teach, shedding light on that which was before a mystery, so that all who will, may see and know.”
Luther Burbank

“Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb. Brooks to wade, water lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets; and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of education.”
Luther Burbank

Gavin is 1 year young.

Gavin’s birthday was just recently, he is only 1 year young~ Santa Rosa Junior College was a good location for his photos, he kept on running around and he is so fast!. But lucky me I got lots and lots of smiles from this cutie.

Michelle and Collin

A former 1900 horse stable was the location for Michelle and Colin’s wedding. Located at Wikiup Santa Rosa ca, this house (horse) is ideal for weddings and more
http://ranchowikiup1.homestead.com/. The couple for the Bay Area hired me and my assistant to photograph their wedding. Everything was perfect and We had a blast.

Esta locacion fue un establo de caballos y es muy original. Tuve la suerte de ser contratada por esta pareja que viajo de la Bahia al Norte de CA para su boda-ellos rentaron esta casa donde tomo lugar la boda. Fue muy romantico y divertido.
