VICU by Alpaca India

We are excited to announce that Alpaca India has launched a new line dedicated to toddlers and children. Meet Vicu by Alpaca India, a young and vibrant line specifically designed for our youngest family members. Vicu is a small family business on the Tijuana/San Diego border and is led by Olivia Arreguin and Leigh Suarez. Each piece is specially made to order using handmade techniques. “Vicu is the result of an evolving project that has matured into a brand devoted to the fun and loving alpacas of South America.” Vicu combines the innocence and uniqueness of each and every child by producing only a limited number of 100% handmade pieces with great attention to detail.  Here you can find the perfect gift for your little one.

Thank you Alpaca India for allowing MPR Studio Photography to be a part of such an amazing opportunity in your life and career. We are thrilled to have played a major part in the launching of this new project.

Happy Birthday Frida!

Today we celebrate 109 years of Frida Kahlo! On a day very much like today (July 6th, 1907) Frida began to conquer a nation through her beautiful artwork. MPR Studio Photography would like honor Frida as an influential artist not only through painting but through photography as well.13625261_10154332935334288_405035989_nPhoto: Manuel Alvarez Bravo

In the early days of MPR Studio Photography, Frida Kahlo became the source of inspiration for one of the studio’s major projects. Frida was a source of uniqueness and freedom to be creative beyond the barriers of art photography.


As such, on this special day MPR Studio Photography would like to announce the winner of our Summer Giveaway featuring a Frida Kahlo mima by Maroma & Arte. Last week we invited all of our followers and viewers to participate in a Frida Kahlo inspired contest where individuals could submit a representation of what Frida means to them. Where creativity had no limits. 13607822_10154333076999288_1703086573_nPhoto: Maroma & Arte

We are pleased to announce that the winner for this Summer Giveaway is @melimajesty! Thank you for submitting this adorable Frida-inspired photo and for keeping up with MPR Studio Photography. We will contact you directly for more details of where we send you your prize!


Summer Giveaway

Get ready for our summer giveaway! In honor of Frida Kahlo’s Birthday, July 6th, we are partnering with Maroma & Arte to award a lucky follower one of these beautiful Frida Kahlo mima dolls.

Frida Kahlo’s major influence in art and politics can be appreciated not only in Mexico but across the globe as well. Kahlo’s pieces represent important moments in her life and the impact of those experiences on her entire being. She was a master of detail and creativity placing her as a leading Mexican painter in history.

We are glad to announce that Maroma & Arte has designed a limited-edition Frida Kahlo doll for all Frida lovers out there. This doll combines detail and creativity in the same way that Frida applied those skills in her paintings and to every day life. Frida is a major inspiration to MPR Studio Photography and to many interdisciplinary artists as well. As such, we hope that this beautiful mima can provide inspiration to your art and life. If you would like to enter for a chance to win please see the rules below. The winner will be announced on July 6th, 2016. Best of luck to all of you!
