This Year, I Strive to Continue Creating, as Always... - Los Angeles Fine Art Photographer

Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm not a new year's resolution kind of person and am not trying to change it this year.  To me, life is a continuum.  How do you determine when you start or stop things based on the time of the year?  If I enjoy doing something, I do it now.  I do not wait 6 months until the beginning of the next year so I feel authorized to pick up something I love.

So, recently I attended a wedding and came back with the center-piece on our table.  If I don't have my hand (or spin) on anything that's presented at home, I can't call myself "the creative". :-)  So I was pulling apart the center-piece and I'm sure this vase has been lonely and now found the match of her life! :-)

For those that know me, I have the urge to document beauty.  So I wasted no time in making this image.  I love the mood that's created by the light and the colors that I designed.  It looks like a painting, doesn't it?

This year, I will stay true to my heart and continue creating...

Now, it's your turn to tell me how you feel about this image. :-)

A Woman is Always Beautiful (Just like Flowers) - Happy Mother's Day - Los Angeles Transformational Beauty Photographer

A friend once made a reference of a woman's life to that of a flower.  I'm pretty sure she's not the only one making the connection between the two.

People tend to associate later parts of lives to something not so positive.  I beg to disagree.

In my household, I barely throw away things, not even the flowers that have fallen off the stems and dried.  By the way, my hubby has stopped trying to argue with me.  How would you argue with an artiiiiiist? ;-)

Anyway, in my eyes, all organisms move through stages of lives, having distinct characteristics.  Take this orchid for example.  Some clients have seen it in my home.  I've kept it even when most people think its life has ended.  Its days of plump skin, perching on the branches have ended.  But those days have been replaced with rich colors, textures and an "attitude" that nothing much can affect it anymore.  To me, that is beautiful!  And I celebrate such a beautiful life by keeping it around and showing people, including clients, how I'm crazy about such a drastically different yet still splendid look at the end of life.

Today, I wanted to take the opportunity to wish all the moms a happy Mother's Day!  Have a great time celebrate what makes you!  And to those of us married women with no children, give ourselves a pat in the back.  You know what I mean if you think back the day that you take over your husband from your mother-in-law.  You've somehow stepped into her shoes, haven't you? Have a happy day, all my women sisters!

Lost & Found - A Little Puppy Found its Way into my Flower Petals - Los Angeles Pet Photographer

The other day, I was playing with the fallen peony petals, i.e. photographing them in all lighting conditions.  This puppy came along and anchored its little behind right in the middle of my "playground".  So, as with anything in life, I made the most out of the situation - I played with both the puppy and the petals.  And the end result is something like the image below.If you've lost your puppy, come claim it and we can discuss how this art can look in your house.
