I discovered hand lettering about 2-3 years ago. It started out as something I wanted to learn just so that I could have it under my “belt” for when or if I ever get married. This way I wouldn’t have to pay for a calligrapher. I figured why not?
I started off practicing and about 2-5 days later I got pretty decent. I did my first chalkboard art for my friend’s wedding and it came out pretty decent. I wasn’t sure what to charge, but I did it for a fair price. (see photo below)

Can I say jitters? I was pretty nervous taking wedding photos for the first time. Everything from planning and leading up to the big day. It’s crazy how your first time is always the most nerve wrecking; making sure all parties leave happy and satisfied.
The venue was at The Kellogg House, Pomona. I went there a month prior to the wedding date to scout the house and see which lenses would work for the wedding reception. I was able to meet the wedding planner and DJ to work out the agenda for the night. If you don’t now already, the Kellogg House in Cal Poly Pomona was constructed in 1962 with the architectural decor of a ranch-style house. I was told W.K. Kellogg was short and that’s why his door handles were really low so that he could easily reach them. Not sure how factual that was. Not going to lie, there were moments when I felt very creeped out being in the house because of how eerie it was when left alone. Each room and bathroom was isolated. The bathrooms especially was so dark, you couldn’t see what was on the other side because there were no windows.

I had the honor to be part of my cousin’s bridal shower as one of her bridesmaids. Our theme was a Tea Party. The bridesmaids did a very good job on keeping it simple and cost effective. We had BC Donuts cater their desserts, which was amazing and tasty. The tea pots and saucers were from my best friend/sister and cousin. Everything was just beautiful and honestly a proud moment for me and the bridesmaids.

I was honored to do a small photoshoot for my co-worker during October for their pumpkin patch with their kids. I must say I think my specialty in photography is children. I love taking photos of children because they are just such happy little people.
I decided to do something new when presenting my co-worker’s family their photos. I included a gift box this way they would have something memorable to look back with my photoshoots. The gift box includes the following:

I decided to do a little ghetto set up to take photos of my shoes so I can sell them on Poshmark and Ebay. Let me say it took me a really long time to get it set up correctly, but it’s do-able for now. Kind of funny how everything looks super ghetto from my point of view, but the results look semi-decent. I used a light box (on the left) to brighten up the left side because the shadows were too harsh when the right flash triggered. I lacked another flash, so it was really hard to find some sort of middle ground. I tried using a bouncer as well, but it didn’t work as well as having a light box. Had to make do with what I had at home.
