Welcome to our Blog!

Let me tell you a little more about us. Alex and I are happily married and we work together at every wedding and photo session. We have three awesome children. Joey Victoria who is 2 years old and our twins Bianca & Alex, who were born in June 3rd 2015!
I love listening to music. I'm a huge Bon Jovi fan and when Alex isn't around, I'm usually singing out loud while working on the computer. I enjoy watching martial arts & figure skating; both of which I competed in when I was younger. I was pretty good in Tae Kwon Do, so you better don't mess with me... just kidding.
I love eating cereal, salads & sushi! My world wouldn't be complete without them! Sure, I'm a little crazy. And Alex is the official dishwasher at home and he loves cars and could talk about them all day. Our TV adiction is Shark Tank. We both are fluent in Spanish as it is our first language. We have a dog named Troy who always makes funny noises when sleeping. We love our life and each other and the freedom of creating images that reflect this crazy thing we are living called love.

Weekly Tip # 6, My arms are too Big!!

Hello dear friends, 

This Monday we are going to talk about something that most girls worry about. Contrary to guys who want them bigger and always want to show them off, girls sometimes want to hide theirs. Hey, I'm talking about their big guns (arms)! Many girls are uncomfortable showing their arms, if even when they look great. Well, let me tell you something, there are many tricks to make your arms look smaller. An experienced photographer knows these, but I will share with you a few.

One tip that will always help is to keep your elbows away from your body, this way your body won't squeeze your arm. Another is to push your elbows to the back, that way you will show only 2/3 of your arm.

In an extreme situation when these tips won't help, wearing a wedding bolero jacket or bridal pashmina shawl is helpful. It not only helps to hide your arms but it can make your whole wedding gown more elegant and give you more confidence for your portraits.

These are a few tips that can help you look great and feel your best in front of a camera, but the best thing and what I always recommend is to find a trainer and talk about your concerns. A good routine can reduce and shape the look of your arms. A good photographer can help, too. So girls, you do your part, and leave the rest to us!

Hope this tip helps and I’ll see you next week!
