This picture was taken at Halebidu. Its just a random pose I did...but i like it! so enjoy! :)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. Im heading to Yosemite this holiday so cant wait to take pictures! This picture was taken at a recent Toys giveaway by YMCA of San Diego. I am actually interning for YMCA now as their intern photographer for marketing. My job is to get their events on camera and have photoshoots of the amazing people in San Diego doing great things in YMCA. Its so exciting to be working for such a big company as YMCA. I get a badge and all & my boss is super sweet! Im in love with this job and cant wait for more events/photoshoots to take for them. YAY! Its really sweet when dreams come true...a dream of becoming a photographer! and hopefully a professional one soon! :) so with that happy news... have a Merry Xmas! and Happy Holidays! stay warm and have lots of fun with family and friends! and keep dreaming because nothing is impossible!

Behind the Scenes

After about few weeks, the behind the scenes video from the Arthur St John photo shoot is up! :) and I'm in it. Well actually i tried to dodge the camera as much as i can but i really liked the way this video turned out so putting up here to keep it as a part of the memory lane. I adore watching behind the scenes videos of numerous photo shoots. Its just awesome to see how much work gets put into the day for the wonderful results. I'm always you tubing Fashion/Magazine Photo shoots like the Bebe photo shoot 2009 safari and any of the Annie Leibovitz videos for Vogue, which are some of my favs. So with those great examples, i was very exited to see this video and decided to share it with you guys. So here it is:
