Oh…hello there! This holiday season has been crazy busy – working on fulfilling client orders around the clock, so I haven’t popped into the blog in a while. However, it’s my favorite time of the month – The Creativity Project circle, so I had to drop in! This month’s theme is family. These pictures are a little dusty from being in the archives for so long. They are not technically perfect in the slightest, but this was probably the last time I brought my camera to Christmas. When I first started getting into photography, my camera went everywhere with me! As business increased, I took less and less personal photos. To the point, where I had to dig this far back to get Christmas photos of my family! Even though, we are in generally good spirits this holiday season, there’s no denying there’s been a general shift in priorities. After losing two very special people in my life to cancer this year (my dad Jorge and my best friend Stephanie), making time for family/ friends is at the very top of my Christmas wish list this year. So even though I’m swamped with work, I’ve been squeezing time for social gatherings with my loved ones whenever possible! Hence typing this post this morning because I was out enjoying margaritas with Kleber’s family last night! :) Because if there’s anything this year has taught me is that family is the most important! Both the family we were given and the one we have chosen. And documenting those moments is equally as important because it’s these photos and memories that are carrying me through the hard times. So I’m making a promise to myself to bring my camera to Christmas this year, even if I have to just throw it on auto and shoot in JPEG (Gasp! I know! LOL). If I don’t have time to check in again before the holidays, have a wonderful time with your loved ones this season!
Missing you – Jorge & Stephanie – more than words can say.
