My wonderful crazy unique family. I wouldn't trade them for the world! Here I'm holding my niece Isabella (in the pink) who is the newest addition to our world. We feasted on the delicious Thanksgiving meal my Aunt Clara hosted for us. The great tradition of family getting together for the holidays is always something to look forward to.
Downtown Orlando became a Jungle of Arts with the help of Creative City Project. They brought the Orlando Ballet, Cirque du Soleil, Central Florida Community Arts Orchestra (which my great friend, Rebecca the cellist, was playing in!), Phantasmagoria and many more performances! Galleries like The CityArts Factory were open to the public and this was all free of charge...yeah, I can't believe it either! For those of you who couldn't come, no worries, I captured the experience for you! Get ready for this magical ART RIDE:
Orlando Ballet showing us their romantic moves and the CFCArts performing in the background.
Phantasmagoria's hottest fire dancers.
Cirque Du Soleil performer kills it with her magical ways.
We love to support our girl Rebecca!!
Some Gallery pics for you to enjoy. I hope you feel like you were there! :)
Had a blast shooting this lady and her funky music spirit! She is amazingly beautiful inside and out and is so humble! You can find Vanessa on Pumps and Pints as she writes about her love for music and fashion. Vanessa's Website is also a great resource for her amazing adventures she blogs about. Go check her out!!!

I've been inching my way into the Snap! gallery for a couple months now and finally made it inside! There were awesome pieces of drawings, prints, sculptures, books and videos. You can find The Snap! Gallery on 1013 E. Colonial, Orlando 32803. For more info go to the Snap! Gallery's website. I loved the pieces I saw, here's a peek.
Yesterday I finished a shoot with the amazing Rebecca. You can find her on Rebeccology. Whats her specialty, you might ask, well she loves graphic design, music and pizza. She's also part of a web-based Orlando Magazine called Pumps & Pints. She was a doll to work with, I hope we shoot again soon!
