Photoshoot of Jenny Arias in Barranquilla, Colombia
Shooting Laura Garcia for her “quinces” on La Ciudad Enmurallada in Cartagena, Colombia was a great experience. Not only she is a beautiful, but this antique city makes for a great setting.
Below are the best of the shoot, both in Cartagena and Barranquilla.
My sister Mariluz came from Holland a couple of months ago. We went to the streets of Wynwood, Miami and I took a couple of portraits of her. It is always fascinating to walk on those streets and see the amazing murals and art surrounding the streets, which make for great photo sessions.
Queridas mama, tia, hermana, primas. Perdonen por no haber publicado esto antes, no se porque me demore tanto. No fue hasta eque mi mamá me dijo hoy que Mariluz ya estaba molesta que no las habia compartido, que me puse a revisar estas fotos que tome en Diciembre del 2011, cuando nos reunimos en la casa de mi tia Jenny.
Quiero decirles a todas que las amo, que son hermosas. Que Dios nos creo con un proposito especial a cada una de nosotras. Que El nos a llamado a ser ezfrozadas y valientes. Que somos sus mujeres virtuosas. Que tenemos el mejor ejemplo de madre que na familia pudiera desear, Mi abuela Sara. Que Dios la escogio a ella para dejar un legado de indentidad en nosotras, una identidad de mujeres fuertes, trabajadoras, sinceras, amigas, consejeras, unidas!
Dios nos ha bendecido al hacernos mujeres de esta familia. Y declaro que somos, lo que nuestro papá ha dicho de nosotras. (Proverbios 31)
Dear mom, aunt, sisters, cousins. Please forgive me for not publishing this before, I don’t know why it took me so long, It wasn’t until today that my mom told me that Mariluz was mad that I has not shared them, that I started review in these photos that I took on December 2011, when we got together at aunt Jenny’s house.
I want to tell all of you that I love you (also to those that are not in this photos), that you are precious. That God created us with a special purpose for each of us, That He has called us to be strong and courageous. That we are virtous women. That we have the best example of mother that any family can wish for, Mi grandma Sara. That God chose her to leave a legacy of identity in us; an identity of strong women, hard workers, sincere, friends, united!
God has blessed us in making us the women of this family, and I declare that we are, what our Dad has said about us. (Proverbs 31)
Continuing with the promotion of the new line of summer shades from R&D Eyewear – iCandy™ – my good friend and model, Debora Santos do Nacimiento, wears the shades as we visit the streets of Miami! Thank you Debbie, what a good time we had, I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I enjoyed working with you. Miss you…Be blessed!
My daughter Naima will be turning 7 in a couple of months. She has been one of my main models since she was a baby. I started to learn photography years before my daughter was born, but it wasn’t until I had her that I started to actually acquire what some people call “the eye” for photography.
My daughter (and my husband) became my main subject to photograph mainly because of the proximity. It was not easy for a new wife and mom like me to go out and search for subjects to photograph and create photo projects. My daughter, however, was always with me and it was just a matter of getting my camera and just shoot away at her. It was fun. I would spend entire days (and entire rolls of film) following her and capturing all those moments that as moms we always want to remember.
In every sense of the word, my daughter is my best work…
Here are some photos of Naima’s most recent photo shoot for spring, at Tree Tops Park in Davie, Florida.
