Illustration: Bum Shorts

I’ve never been one to call out sick out of work. I like to save my PTO days for important things—-like traveling. I must have miscalculated somehow because I now have 13 days of PTO that expire at the end of this month. How the hell did this happen?
I looked up a few flights to see where I could go at last minute’s notice.I had some interesting choices, but in the back of my mind all I kept thinking was..do I want to spend money or make money?
My first staycation was filled with both laziness and productivity all wrapped into one.
Let me explain.
I’ve been waking up late, and spending my sweet ass time on my couch, binge watching Parks & Recreation. I started to rewatch it, and two days in I’m already up to season 4. What is life? In my defense, at least I was drawing the whole time.
I ended up finishing 3 personal drawings and 2 commissioned illustrations. Yay me!
So naturally, I have to share with you guys. (the rest will be shared in their respective posts)
This pink haired beauty has me jealous with her cute little jean romper. I wish I could pull off cheeky little shorts like this, but the way my bum is set up (Kevin Hart voice)
She also makes me miss all of my colorful hair. I recently shared a collage on ig if you guys want to see it HERE. I’ve been thinking about purple hair a lot, but right now that’s not going to happen. I need to focus on keeping my hair healthy first!

   Here’s another family shoot for the portfolio. I enjoy these because I get to grasp the happiness, and what’s better than when Mom is expecting?
Angie looked marvelous in her floral crown.
I have another family shoot I can’t wait to share with you!
Best,

Illustration: Crop Top See Through Blouse

I didn’t know that when I finished this piece I was going to be drooling over her shirt that way. Sometimes I surprise myself with the things I create, and the see-through blouse she’s rocking, needs to be in my closet, like yesterday!

   I secretly love 10 minute photo sessions. When you do something right, there’s no need to stay there longer than needed. My cousin Sasha and her family has been growing non-stop these past few 4 years. I’ve photographed a couple of her milestone (clink on the events below to see) and this was no different, now that she’s expecting baby number 3.
Contrary to the pictures because of all the pink, she’s expecting another boy! Dad Ramgy was hoping for a girl, but Sasha was pretty content knowing she was going to be the only queen in the house!

Family: Jenna’s Baby Brunch

After my brother Luis and his girl’s gender reveal, they were pretty much convinced that they didn’t want a babyshower at all. In my opinion I can see exactly why. All the money spent throwing a fancy party for everyone else, you could easily just buy everything yourself (and it would still probably be cheaper). Plus, whoever wants to get you a present, is going to get you something anyway, babyshower or not. Wendy, Jen’s sister wanted a little celebration anyway, especially since this Jen’s first child.
I have to say, I really loved seeing how much Wendy loves her sister. She was so personable and made every little thing about Jen and Luis. It was beautiful.
She planned an all women (not counting the daddy to be) brunch and everyone was required to wear pink… yes, it’s a girl!

The unlimited mimosas and sangria woke us all up. My tres golpes was delicious. Sofrito was on point and
my momma was looking gorgeous today, I think I snapped more pictures of her than the couple! hahaha.
It was a really good day. I wanted to dance a bit, but the music was kind of low. Didn’t stop me from dancing a song with Luis.

I hope you guys have enjoyed the pics, and this time I’m adding a video as well. That’s right!
I want to start teaching myself a bit more video editing, so let’s hope that goes well.
See you guys next time!

   Honestly, I’ve been slacking a lot when it comes to the Bermuda posts. It’s just been so much to go through, and as soon as I got back I’ve been bombarded with work and gigs… not that I’m complaining. I love when I get new clients. It gives me the opportunity to create something new, and challenge myself. Let’s not forget bringing joy to someone else in capturing a memory they can cherish forever.
I have so much to share with you guys, for now… Here’s a little  snippet from Bermuda. Kat and I stopped by Bailey’s Ice Cream Parlor and their small shop is so cute and colorful, I couldn’t resist in ordering Kat around and making her pose for me!
See you guys soon,
