Left: My beautiful Mom, "Dolores". Right: Mom, and my always cool and inspiring,
older sister "Nan". circa 1954
I was affected at an early age, by observing my Mom's artistic, and ever evolving oil painting, which was displayed in our living room.
She painted a fantasy depiction of a beautiful woman, who's appearance was unfinished, and ever-changing.
First, as an Egyptian queen, then finally morphing into a Chinese Empress.
This painting was part of the family, and quietly made it's impression on me.
I learned the secret of what a simple change in outfit, and/or hair, makeup, and accessories, could make in the mood set, of a portrait.
Thus, I encourage you to experiment, and have fun with these kinds of choices, during your photo session!
We usually include the helpful talent of our special assistant, Cinthy Cervantes, who will help you look and feel your best!
Having fun, and feeling good, is a huge part of getting great portrait results!
I reality, even a serious, dramatic expression, is usually followed by a release of laughter!
My ultimate goal, is to capture your inner beauty, you may normally subdue in everyday life situations.
Sounds cliche', or pretentious, but there it is! Undeniable.
