Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Moscoso

Today my little brother got married. It is a very strange feeling, a part of me thinks he is absolutely crazy and maybe he is a little. But isn't that what love about? Finding that person to join us in our insanity and together you can share your insanity? I can't help but look at my baby brother and see the cute chubby face three year old that I adored. Seeing him get married has opened a floodgate of memories. I wish Claudia and my brother, Alfredo, all the happiness in the world. I love you baby brother and welcome to the Moscoso clan Claudia!

Studio Light Fun

Before my dear friend Naomi left for her "Great Escape" I asked if she planned on selling her studio lights because I was very interested in purchasing them. After having them in my possession for over a month now, I have finally been putting them to good use. I have to admit that although I am a lover of natural light, studio lights open up the opportunity for I-feel-like-doing-photography-but-there-isn't-enough-light photo shoots (haha, were you able to follow that?). And so, I have been photographing many different things at many different times and these are some of the fun projects I have been working on:

Some photos for Imagine All That Vintage:

Now just for fun:

The following two pictures are Yasmin and her Tia (aunt in Spanish) Dana:

Our rendition of "Hear no evil, speak no evil, and see no evil"

The following image is a satirical self-portrait of my opinion of the times we live in. Notice the cell phone, the bad habits (smoking), and the casino coffee mug. The text was added in by my sweet penpal Ellen, who said she would print this out to put in her kitchen.

The little ham known as Yasmin...

It is an understatement if I were to say that my daughter, Yasmin, is entertaining. I have to say that a little part of me rejoices every time she asks me to take her photo because I know I am guaranteed to have fun doing it. Even after a long day of shooting for business, I still found the inspiration to photograph her. She's such a little ham, don't you just want to eat her up?

Visions of the Grove...

Much needed contemplation while pedaling on two wheels and my camera anxiously waited in my basket for these images to create themselves. These shots were taken in Elk Grove, California off of Calvine and Grantline Roads.

I need to travel!
