On Sunday was Julia’s turn to shine! She also turned two and even though she was very shy and not so happy at the beginning of the party, she was able to warmed up and enjoy her celebration!
Here are some images:
Everyone loves the parachute
and of course the music, the girls at LIC kids do an excellent job at entertaining the kiddos
We had a busy weekend, especially at LIC Kids!
I love kids parties and I was part of two beautiful birthdays parties on Saturday and Sunday.
First we have a two-year-old handsom boy named Ethan who had a blast at his party. Lots of fun with the LIC Kids’s crew, singing songs, playing at the gym, lots of colorful balls, instruments, a parachute!, lots of jumping, cake and much more!! Check out the pictures:
Oh yes! I loved the jumping!
The cake had Ethan’s face printed on it.
If you have more time check out my favorite images from the party in this video!
I’ve been so happy during these weeks waiting for my baby to be born and finally get to hold him, it’s one of the most exciting feeling in the world. Everything is a milestone and this whole time it has been full of changes that are preparing me physically and mentally to get through what I need to do.
Right now I’m 35 weeks pregnant and a week ago a photographer friend of mine took my belly pictures! I have to say that, yes, I wanted to have my picture taken but it’s always have been difficult for me to be at the other side of the camera. Fortunately Rebeca is my friend and I feel confortable with her, she is very patience and we had a fun time together.
The picture above it’s my favorite of the whole session, we both have different views and when we were taking the pictures she wasn’t happy with the flare from the window but that’s something that I actually like and was the feeling I was looking for.
Let me know what you guys think, if you ask I’ll probably add here a couple of more pictures from the session.
I feel so terrible because I haven’t written a post in so long, I thought I’d gotten the habit of blogging months ago, but I guess it didn’t work out. Honestly every time I ever intended to write something “happened” and never finish or even started.
So to give you a short overview of how things are going I have to say… “very busy”. Last fall and holiday season I had lots of great shoots and especially with my new “pet project” that is Kiki LIC Photography. Yes! I’m photographing doggies and cute pets mainly around Long Island City (LIC) together with partner in crime Junenoire.
I always have fun when I work with kids and now photographing the dogs it’s very complementary. I love to do it and I enjoy it a lot and instead of doing a Kids portrait holiday shoot I was focus on my Doggy Holiday shoots and designing tons of cute holiday cards for dogs but of course always taking care of my human adorable clients and their needs.
As you see in the opening image of this post… yes! We’re expecting our first baby boy! Right now I’m 28 weeks pregnant and super thrilled and excited about the whole process and just thinking about what’s coming for us. This stage of my life makes me think about a whole new range of possibilities and believe me you can go crazy. I’m enjoying every step of the way of being almost a mom, my ever growing belly, the cute baby outfits, and always trying to be positive and not think about “what may go wrong” which is the things that all the pregnancy books tell you and that’s why I always skip those and read just about the stage and progress that my baby is doing that’s very exciting (at least for me).
Talking about books, I really have to say that if you’re pregnant you don’t have to read “What to expect when you’re expecting”, after reading a few chapters and skimming around I just didn’t want to read it anymore, it’s full of parts saying what could ever go wrong which is something we shouldn’t focus on at all. This type of books tell you things that you shouldn’t be worry about, do you really need to know about “Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)” if your doctor hasn’t mention anything yet?
Anyways, I definitively want to write more here, and I may orient my content towards photography (beside what I’m doing with work) I can give tips about photography (spanish and english or both?), teaching how to handle the camera, beginner, intermediate and advance techniques and my experience as a new parent.
Let me know what would you like to read about!

You guys know my main work is photographing kids but I’m always shooting events for Queens Council on the Arts (QCA) and Live at the Gantries is a very special event for me since it was my first official gig three years ago (in 2008) when I started shooting as a professional photographer. It’s fun to remember my first concerts [link] =) And even more pleasant to see my former clients again =)
… And before I start to get emotional I’m just going to show you my peaks from yesterday’s performance =)
Of course kids always steal the show. I love to see them dancing.
…and breakdancing too!..
Well sort of.
I can’t resist cute dogs!
Hope to see you guys next Tuesday for another concert at Live at the Gantries!
