My Cuquipie is Thirty!

Quote of the Day:

"Best Friends are siblings God forgot to give us"

So my best friend Sandy turns 30 today! If you looked at her you wouldn't think she was close to it! 
She is an amazing friend and I am so thankful to have her in my life!
We have been through ALOT together! 
We have fought...and made up...and fought...and made up ....and fought..played silent treatments for months...and then made up...LOL
We've been through it all..but one thing is for sure I know this girl would be there for me for any and everything. That's why I love her!
Those individuals who have Sandy in their lives should be thankful that she is.
 And if they are not...

is all I have to say!

Sandy would definitely say that but in more piercing words...LOL
Gotta love her Puerto Rican Spice!

Thank you Sandy for never judging and always being there for me!

Continuing to Learn

I must say I am enjoying my studies into Digital Multimedia!
Yesterday's digital photography class we studied on Lighting and Perspective! We were in the studio the entire night shooting our classmates with different lighting techniques. It was awesome. Once done, we headed back into the classroom and made our Contact sheets for our instructor to go through and critique. 
I love it!
Anywho, my instructor is over the South Florida Camera Club, so next week his club is having a guest photographer by the name of Rick Sammon. So our assignment for next week is to attend the workshop with him! All I could think of was...


Onto one of my other classes.......Digital Publishing!
We are currently learning Digital Publishing with InDesign. I am learning SO MUCH in this class. From Magazine Page Layouts to Web Layouts for web designs, layouts for advertising, and a number of other things. Its amazing how so much detail goes into publishing a single layout....
During the process of learning, I am starting to just experiment and create SIMPLE layouts for my business to help.
Here is one that I have experimented with. 
I am still in the learning process.
But I think I did a pretty dern good job! Woop Woop! ;)

Let me know what you think!

Miami Heat Game with the Boys

Yesterday we had a family night out to go watch the Heat vs. Buck play at the American Airlines arena here in Miami, Florida.
Even though the Heat lost the experience being there surrounded by fans was awesome! All three of my loves LOVED it! 
We watched the game eating bottomless popcorn (Popcorn refills...lol)the entire game! 
Hate that the Heat lost but hey, you win some....you lose some!

A Little Diva in the Making

Today I shot a gorgeous little diva named Lala! 
Lala is the daughter of Music Artist "Silowett", whom I have worked with numerous times and love working with. 
She was great during the shoot! Her mommy and little brother were there supporting her the entire time!
 She has that "Diva" mentality already in her blood so it was easy for her being in front of the camera! ;) 
She has the same drive as her mommy! I love it!
Make sure to look out for this little girl in the future!!

Quote of the Day

“When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes.  But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!”  ~Ted Grant

My client absolutely LOVES black and white images!
 So what my client LOVES my client GETS!
Black and white photos, depending on the image, can make an image very strong and bring out the emotion being portrayed!

 Since I have started in my studies for digital media & post production one thing that is truly important to a digital image is LIGHTING! 
I am becoming quite good with the lighting inside the studio as well as in my location photography. I make sure I always take my softbox with me wherever I go. As in these photos I took of her the natural light plus artificial light that I used made the photos come out AMAZING!
I have improved ALOT in my lighting positioning and techniques. 
Still have TONS to learn but I am slowly but surely ridding my images of shadows..unless I want them..LOL! 

I am striving to improve for YOU!

My Preggo Model

One of my models, the lovely Diadra Mosley, that I have shot before has been blessed with a healthy pregnancy and will be delivering this March 2012. I am extremely excited for her. Diadra contacted me to be her photographer for her maternity shoot and of course I could not say no to her!! ;) I was so excited to do her shoot. I had a great experience with shooting her Commercial Shoot last year so I knew this session was going to be amazing! 
She is the cutest....and SMALLEST preggo that I have ever seen. Nothing but belly! I was super jealous! She was absolutely glowing and beautiful for her shoot today! 
I want to thank her for choosing KLM Photography to capture the beginning of starting mommyhood!
I can't wait to shoot her and her newborn baby boy when he gets here!!!
Congratulations Diadra!

"You only live once so make it worth it; live your dreams, never say never and be fearless."

I never thought I would EVER go whitewater rafting but now I want to actually do it again!! 
If there is something that you want to pursue...GO FOR IT! 
You won't regret it!
 The only time you will regret it is if you DON'T do it!

This is my mom, dad, husband and I whitewater rafting up in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee on our family vacation back in March 2010! If my parents can do it...you can do it...LOL!

Action of the Day

I make sure that I send a text to my husband every day to let him know that I love him and I am thinking about him daily! 
So I decided to share an:


"Send a letter, email, tweet, or text message out of the blue: Email someone you haven’t spoken with for a while, or text someone you see every day just to be nice. Maybe they’ll respond, maybe not – it’s beside the point. They just need to know that they’re important to you. It can make the biggest difference in the world!"

Jenifer's message to her fiance King! :)
I can't wait to capture their wedding day April 2012!

Photo Shoot and a Puffer Fish

It was a beautiful day for a photo shoot. Even though it was cold, it was bright and sunny. It was a perfect day to use my handy dandy Reflector. 

I had the pleasure of shooting the lovely aspiring model April Preston. For her first photo shoot I must say she did an awesome job. She listened well and as soon as she got more comfortable in front of the camera it was a done deal...she was posing her behind off! The photos came out amazing! While shooting there were a few fishermen there at the beach "fishing" of course...and he happened to catch a Puffer Fish. So we stopped the shoot to run over and see it..lol! It was crazy...It started to puff up while I was taking pictures of it....I guess because it was in defense mode and I got a bit nervous thinking it was about to explode on me or something so I backed up. That was my first time seeing a Puffer Fish in person. It was pretty neat. 
Here's a couple photos of it...

So after being amazed at the fish...like I've never seen a fish before...we got back to working. We got some stellar shots in and I have to thank April again for choosing
KLM Photography.
Here are a couple preview photos.

Best Friend + Kiddies = Great Memories

Yesterday my boys and I decided to head up to West Palm Beach to spend the day with our extended family which would be my best friend Sandy and my god kids Gordi and Julianna. Sandy's brother Mark, niece Aisha, sister Tiana and her boyfriend Alex were also there to hang out with for a few. 

So one major thing that I LOVE about visiting Sands is she always cooks for me. :)  After taking the kids to the park during the day we went back to the house and she cooked for me. This is always a given...As soon as I told her I was heading up there that morning the first thing she said was,"When you leaving cause I need to get up and go grocery shop" which is aka "I know this chick wants me to cook so let me get up and make sure I have what I need before she gets here." LOL Ahhhh she spoils me! 
My favorite that she cooks for me: Baked chicken with rice and beans.
I'll go ahead and get the food photo out of the way! 
This may be the simplest meal but its something about that Puerto Rican touch to it with the seasonings that makes it the BEST!
I'm totally addicted to her cooking! #yummy

Ok..so enough with the food...besides that...our day consisted of fun and laughter. We took the kids to a couple of play areas around Wellington, FL which they loved and Te-Te Sandy took all the kids for ice cream after. It definitely pooped the kids out. 

Here is what our day looked like from start to finish! 

Julianna and Aisha's fort under the tv. My boys kept knocking the pillows down..LOL

They played dodgeball in the house.

We then headed to the park so they could let play themselves out.

JR thought he was Superman the whole time we were at the park. He would jump up everytime right before landing directly on his butt to slide down. Scared me everytime.

My goddaughter is the cutest! She would climb up the slide only to slide down into someone behind her. LOL

Sweats and a TuTu
She refused to take off her TuTu....She had to wear it everywhere we went...

AJ enjoyed himself. He always loves the park.

Here we are on the sideline watching the kiddos!

Julianna loved the swing

She sticks her butt out like her momma..LOL

My godson Gordi and I

These two are my favorites! Love them!

The Suarez sisters! :)

Gordi was our photographer for the day :)

After the park we headed to a playarea in a mall in Wellington.
It was an OVERLOAD of kids!

This is one of Jules favorite places.

AJ was trying to "Take Over the World."

I love when my sugabuga is having fun!

Aisha loved the play area! So cute!

Sands then took all the kids over to Haagen-Dauz for some ice cream! 
Talk about best day ever for a kid!

After a fun day out, we headed back to Sandy's house and she started cooking. The kids played and we sat and chatted until the food was ready for me to devour! ;)

My Ace Boon Coon!
We've had our disagreements and fights but those things have made us closer!
 Love this chick!

My fish face...and trying to grow a butt within a second of a photo..lol
(Was not being serious like these other girls that do that crap for all their photos..smh) 
STOP IT! **serious face**

How fancy!!! Sandy's scarf attire for the night! 
Her pet snake Leo!


JR said, "HECK to the NOOOOO!!! LOL

But then he gave in to her like he always does..

And that was our Saturday! Hope you all enjoyed yours as well! Spending it with loved ones is always best!
