Chasing Sunsets

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for sunsets. All of them. Whenever I can chase one, I will. I took my first little road trip down to San Diego this weekend after months of battling health issues. It was so good to get away.

I found my way to Sunset Cliffs in San Diego and waited for the sunset. I noticed a lot of couples showing up to do the same. I even witnessed one gentleman get down on one knee and propose. I missed him down on his knee but I caught their embrace when she said yes. It’s not stalking, it’s people watching!

I decided to try to find them to get the picture to them and, thanks to the power of social media, I found them! Happy Ending.❤️

Her oldest is going off to the military so she wanted to have pictures with her kids before he leaves.

It’s amazing how time flies. We get so busy taking care of them, raising them and making sure they become well adjusted adults that when the day comes for them to spread their wings and fly we wonder if we’ve missed any moments.

When they’re not little anymore you can’t bribe them with ice cream to take a picture with you, so I have to say these two were troopers by granting their mom her wish to capture just one more moment. Hold each other tight, treasure family. Next thing you know, they’re ready to leave the nest and live life.

I had to go to Miami last week and after 15 long years, I finally got to see my good friend.  We’re both from Chile and that’s where we originally met. I would travel back to Chile when I was teenager and we became good friends. Our parents go waaaay back.  She ended up moving to the U.S. and I had the opportunity to see her in 2001 when I was driving through Miami.  I cannot believe that it’s been 15 years since that last hug.  We talk regularly and keep track of each other on social media, maybe that’s why 15 years went by and we didn’t feel them.

I couldn’t go to Miami and not see her. Unacceptable.  So I got in my rental and drove to her house and finally got to meet her wonderful husband and two children.  Unfortunately, her son doesn’t like pictures so he’s missing from this impromptu photo shoot. Meet my friend Alejandra.

Kiara & Kiel

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

I had the opportunity to meet Kiara earlier this year when we worked together for her website. I simply fell in love with her and jumped at the opportunity to work with her again.

Kiara and Kiel met two and a half years ago.  He was wearing a beanie, she wore this white, lacey dress. Clearly, he fell in love with her, too. A week ago he asked her to marry him and she said YES!

Celebrating their love outdoors was nothing short of magical. Congratulations on your engagement! ❤️

I had the opportunity to run away to the desert and photograph one my oldest friends and his awesome family. Mountains and alfalfa fields and sunsets, oh my! ❤️
