Thank You 4

If I had events to post, I would post everyday. If I had a cutting edge, run and gun life, I’d have even more interesting things to blog about. If I had more time, I’d have more time to shoot… So instead of trying to live into things that I feel are unreal and maybe even out of reach, I’m beginning to look at the things that are already in my reach. I’ve never been one to take what I have for granted, but its the small things in life that I think many people overlook or just completely miss, but maybe this project will help everyone really see and appreciate, the small things in their lives.

Maybe people spend so much of their lives trying to catch up to someone else that they forget that they already have unparalleled happiness. That’s why I am thankful for so much, whether it be to God, my parents, my family, my clients, or people I dont even know that have so much power in the world to make things like Snuggies, Rice Krispies, or Target; I’m still thankful for having these moments, these things, these experiences in my life.

Thank You For…

The Cindy Pingol Debut PREVIEW

Yesterday night, January 23, 2010 Cindy Catherine Maniti Pingol celebrated her impressive and beautiful 18th birthday debut. 25 tables, over 200 guests, a Chinese and Filipino buffet, and a light and decoration redesign of the Cerritos Senior Center altogether made this night so incredibly extravagant. I guess i’m just trying to say that i was thoroughly impressed by the mulititude of time, effort, and talent put into this celebration. Cindy looked absolutely gorgeous and her court and team of family and friends executed a perfect program.

About 2 months ago Cindy and her mom asked me to cover the debut, I was privileged to work with her court and take them on a pre debut shoot. I was able to make them 2 slideshows, a large frame for guest to sign, a personal guestbook, and cover the entire debut even before arrival. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. Happy Birthday Cindy, Gaby and I had a blast these last two months and were glad we’ve made so many new friends. I hope you love your pictures!
