Boxing Show

Last Saturday I attended a boxing show at the Salinas Armory Hall to photograph the kids that were sponsored by MXN Boxeo for a friend. This was my first time photographing a sports event and I was worried the pictures would come out blurry because the kids were so fast! Most of them came out pretty good, although, there were some challenges. Such as taking a good picture without the ring ropes interfering as much and finding the space to take a good shot because the hall was so crowded with people and families who went to watch and support their kids.

These kids are tough! They did so great they won a trophy! 🙂


Father-daughter/Mother-son Dance

I was invited to go to a father-daughter/mother-son dance a couple of weeks ago. This was for my older cousin, Danny, and his family. My little second cousins are soo funny! They had us all laughing throughout the night. I have to say it was pretty cool, it was very well setup and all the children had a lot of fun
dancing and playing the entire time. This was also my first time taking photographs at an event. I learned a couple things… free drinks and food! Haha! 😛

Really though, I need to come prepared next time I need to definitely remember to bring an extra battery and my tripod. I also need to work on my shooting skills and adjust my camera settings. Practice practice practice! Still learning, any helpful feedback is welcome!


Below are photographs before the dance began. My cousin and his wife have been together for over a decade and they are still so in love! I have been a pretty stubborn non-believer in the forever love but sometimes couples like them give me hope that true love exists ❤

Borrowed my brothers girlfriend, Sam, for a quick photo shoot on Friday. I used this photo for part of my photography final, the theme was the color amarillo. It was difficult to choose just one photo out of the entire shoot but I decided on this one.

It was awesome spending the day with Sam. I got to know her a little better too! She’s a very shy and quiet girl but super sweet and adventurous 🙂

“You Don’t Take A Photograph, You Make It.”

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.


Ok! The only florals here are on the tall bush right outside my home. Works great as a background though haha 🙂 I was totally feeling this long sleeve crop top and high wasted skirt with slits. Kinda makes me feel like a goddess haha. I didn’t get a chance to photograph the back side of my top. It has a really cute low cutout. I got the entire outfit at forever21. I wonder if I should do more outfit posts? Anyway I bought a new tripod a couple days ago so I’ll be taking a couple shots at night time next Friday. I also bought a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8, I can’t wait to use it. I plan on using it exclusively for capturing bucketlist items 🙂
