Photo of the Week No. 4: “Pit Bull in the Park”

January 22, 2018

This past Saturday, I hung out at the park with my guy and his dog, Jacc, the regal pit bull featured in this Photo of the Week. Our outing at the park was threefold: Let Jacc run amok and get some exercise, spend some quality time with him and Dash, and take some photos along the way. Say what you want about pit bulls, but Jacc is as obedient and loving as they come. He even lets me cradle him in my arms like a baby — all 60 pounds of him! He’s a beautiful boy, with his big brown eyes, floppy ears and dreamy grey coat. It’s no wonder why Jacc’s so photogenic. Stay tuned for more images of him in this feature, obvi. I call this one, my fourth Photo of the Week, “Pit Bull in the Park.”

Photo of the Week No. 3: “Azalea, Commander of Cute”

January 15, 2018

My cute little 11-month-old niece, Azalea, is the star of my third Photo of the Week. And there’s plenty more where that came from because she is the most adorable little human I’ve ever laid eyes on. This image was captured the day before Christmas, as my siblings, Zae and I were hanging out in the loft area at my mom’s house in Menifee. Zae is completely enamored by cell phones, and she being the sticky-finger bandit that she is snatched my sister Ayesha‘s unattended phone, which looks like a vintage camera. This was literally a Kodak moment in the making. I was snapping away, flash and all, when she looked up at me as if to say, “Can you cool it with the photos, auntie?!” And that’s the image that I now call “Azalea, Commander of Cute.”

Photo of the Week No. 2: “Serving Face All Summer”

January 8, 2018

It’s time for another Photo of the Week, friends! For my second installment of 2018, I’m featuring my beautiful sister Ayesha. I call this one “Serving Face All Summer,” because that’s exactly what she did. This photo was taken at my job’s summer party at the world-famous Santa Monica Pier, which is all about fun in the sun. Amid all the day’s revelry, I captured my sister in one of her infamous “face-times.” To the naked eye, it may look unrehearsed but Esha is no stranger to working her angles. I’m quite proud of myself for catching those cheekbones hitting the light just right.

Photo of the Week No. 1: “Puppy Peering at Peering Puppy”

January 2, 2018

New feature alert! I figured I’d start the year off with some newness because by golly it’s about time I switched things up. I have lots of goals for 2018, and this new addition represents a combination of two of them. This year I endeavor to be more consistent with this here blog and to hone my photography skills. I photograph events and people at my job (and have done so for my past few professional roles) on a consistent basis, and in my personal life, of course, mostly for Snapchat and the ‘Gram. Because I’m holding myself accountable, I went ahead and double-downed on that goal by investing in myself and buying a Canon DSLR camera. I was reminded by a colleague that my photography is an art form that I should be proud of sharing, and her comments really resonated with me. Maybe she’s onto something.

Without further ado, I present my Photo of the Week for the first week of 2018. I call this one “Puppy Peering at Peering Puppy.”

What are some subjects you’d like to see me photograph? Let me know in the comments section below. And Happy New Year to you!
