Dinosaur Party

>> Wednesday, July 28, 2010

After being postponed one month and then cancelled for another two weeks we finally celebrated Mikey's 4th Birthday. He  chose a Dinosaur theme and it turned out beautiful. It was rushed, hectic, crazy and most of all FUN. I wish I took pictures of the "details" but I didn't I hope my sister or SILs  took some I'll update with theirs soon. Here are a few of the most memorable moments.

It was also Tia Maty's birthday on the day we celebrated mikey so she got a surprise as well :)
Yep It's My Party and I'll Cry If I want To

Diaper Cake

>> Monday, July 19, 2010

My little sister is having a baby in about 3 weeks I'm so thrilled, I already have a nephew but he is my Brother-in-Law's boy so even though I love him very very much I can't compare the kind of love I feel for my blood nephew I have not met him yet only felt him move. I feel like I know him I can't wait to hold him and give him lots of love. I am gearing up for the many photo sessions I will have with him :) I love newborn sessions :D (will blog on that soon). so In preparation for my sister's baby shower this Friday I made my first diaper cake!!! after rolling 84 size 2 diapers I must say my hands are tired but the result is well worth it.


box of diapers your choice brand and size, bigger diapers you will need less, and smaller diapers more.

scissors and scotch tape

paper  any kind ( I used my printer paper) cut in strips and then those strips cut in half


the first thing you will have to do is roll the diapers, start with the top part of the diaper facing you and the front to the bottom of the table like this:

then you will place a strip of paper under the rolled diaper, and wrap it around finishing with a piece of tape

roll all the diapers this way how many will depend on the size of your diaper cake

from there the next step would be making the "layers" for that you simply make a circle with the diapers I started with 7 and wrapped a paper around them then add more to make a bigger circle, wrap and tape the paper to look like  like this:

Now stack your layers from largest to smallest like this ( I added a bottle to the to player as a "cake topper" but you can add anything) :

Lastly you will wrap ribbon around the layers to hide the paper, and decorate with baby items like this :

there's always room for improvement but I like how fun this one turned out.


The loves of my life

If you truly know me then you are very much aware that my immediate family is my entire WORLD. I love my Miguel and my Mikey more than anything.

Mikey is the apple of my eye and he is the reason I want to be a better person. He puts the candy coating on my boring everyday life. Always joyful and sometimes a little too  whiny he is the best child a mother could ask for. I truly am so thankful to have him as my son and I'm the proudest mother there is I'm sure. :) Even on the days where he makes me want to pull the hair right out of my head I love him more than anyone could ever know.

My dear husband, Miguel he truly is my one and only love, I don't regret any decisions I've made with him he compliments me in everywhich way. My soulmate, my best friend, we finish eachother's sentences, we think eachother's thought's and sometimes we read eachother's minds(no kidding). Funny the way things turn out our little friendship has turned into our lifes shared forever. We seek the same goals we want the same things for our future. Miguel is nothing but my other half and I know without him I could never be complete. He allows me live the life of a SAHM and doesn't ask for much he loves me for who I am and annoys the living daylights out of me from time to time, but we get over it. I'm in love with him. Miguel is my encourager, he motivates me to ask more of myself and always be the better person. Mostly he believes in me, what more could I ever ask for. Lastly he funds my passion for photography :)


Let me put it simple...go out and get what YOU want.

In 2009 around the month of April I got permission from my dear hubby to purchase a "high ticket" item, I was faced with a tough decision new computer or a highly desired new digital camera. I was a little stumped I surely needed both but only had the funds for one. A little thinking and a big push from my online friend Margarita sent me in the right direction. I bought a DSLR, because I knew I could take the photos that the "Pros" can! bah anyone with a good camera can churn out great photos!! BOY was I wrong! in the beginning there was NOTHING but disappointment. After a ton of reading, researching and mostly practicing I can now say I know how to work my Canon XSi, and I know it's capabilities and it's limitations, as well as my own. It's always great to push the boundaries and and to set new standards for myself though to keep my mind alert and eager to learn more. I am a firm believer that you can never have too much knowledge.

I have a million more miles to ride on the journey to discovering my true potential as a photographer but I know for sure that this is my vocation, and I will spend the rest of my life perfecting my craft. This is what I want.

Thanks for dropping by to read my first post of many to come, as I continue to grow as a photographer. Stay tuned for the silly, the pretty, the breath taking, the inspiring, and some of the not so great, images that I collect through the viewfinder of my beloved DSLR.
