Sunday Morning

Sit back, relax and enjoy the day.

That’s what you’re suppose to do on Sundays right? We know that for many of us that’s not always the case but on the rare occasion that we’re able to relax and enjoy the weekend there’s no better way to do than by taking a walk around your neighborhood. Sometimes taking the perfect photo doesn’t mean scouting for the perfect location. It simply means capturing the most imperfect moment and embracing it as simply perfect. I wasn’t planning on photographing anything in particular I just wanted to take my camera and walk around the block. No scouting, no appointments simply enjoying my Sunday morning. And without knowing it, I ended capturing some beautiful shots of my daughter. There was no posing, staging or light measurements. These photos are a reflection of a Sunday morning.

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.

It’s time for Comic-Con International

It’s that time of the year…Comic-Con International season is here! Every year the beautiful city of San Diego hosts the largest Comic convention worldwide. Thousands of people, local and international, reside in SD for a week while they enjoy the festivities taking place inside and outside the convention center.

My family has attended Comic-Con without fail for the past 18 years and we can’t wait to see what’s planned for this years convention. Although Comic-Con has now expanded to include more of the Hollywood scene it still preserves its original comic-lover audience. Attendees can cosplay throughout the week, enjoy animated films and panels, and many times are able to meet the creators of their favorite comics.

For those who enjoy super hero movies and manga series but do not consider themselves complete fanatics can also enjoy from several Hollywood movies/TV series booths and panels as well. If you didn’t have the chance to purchase a ticket this year still come on down to the Convention Center and Gaslpamp Quarter because there’s always something for everyone to enjoy.

Wild Love

Back in early spring I had the opportunity to work alongside local Designer Jacqueline Guerra from Love War & Fashion.

Wild Love was inspired by the spring bloom, the green, and flowy dresses! Our beautiful Miss Teen Universe contestant-model, Amor Guerra,  communicates to young teens to embrace their wild side. To be free-spirits and to pursue their dreams.

I couldn’t have asked for more. On the day of our shoot we had the perfect trifecta: weather, location, and model. The rest is history!
