This drawing that I created gives me all types of Peg Bundy vibes. Maybe it’s all the leopard and half pinup-ed hair. When I saw Shaina‘s blue hair, I fell in love. yes this make up artist is extremely talented with a set of brushes, but what always leave me in awe is the crazy colors she puts on her hair. It makes me miss all of my the times I used to dye my hair. Shaina is the absolute sweetest, so I had no hesitation when starting this piece. I love when my illustrations make others happy and her reaction did not disappoint!
Catch you guys later,
Oh, and don’t forget to see more of my illustrations on my instagram, and you can see Shaina’s work on HERE. and her Youtube HERE.

I absolutely love when I get to capture families. I love it even more when they play around and just naturally have fun with each other. Now that’s a kind of love I adore to capture. When Frankie asked me over for tacos, I knew we were gonna have some laughs. Her little tribe is the cutest and the smartest boys I’ve yet to see. I loved how much they danced, jumped around and spit out facts they wanted to share with me.
I also had the opportunity of incorporating her new line of jewelry. She’s been working really hard to create Little House of Aura’s. (I’ve even helped design her new business cards, you can see it HERE) Her line is “A Beaded Gemstone Jewelry Collection for Children 📿” so naturally, we adorned the little ones in her jewelry. The crystal’s were beautiful and every other second Jax was telling me the names of all the different stones. So cute!
I hope yo guys have enjoyed these, I know I had blast shooting them.
Until next time,
You can visit The Little House of Aura’s Etsy Shop HERE.

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!

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!

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!
