This past Sunday I had the pleasure of taking photos for a blessing ceremony on the cliffs of La Jolla. Little Lyla was being honored by her family with a ceremony to bless her life and everything she does. During the ceremony each family member dipped their finger in ocean water and touched Lyla, symbolizing the blessing of her life. It was a precious and touching service for this adorable little girl that had so much life bursting out of her. It wasn't hard snapping a beautiful photo of her, with her little white dress and yellow bow in hair; she was just too cute! Thank you Rezai family for allowing me to capture that wonderful moment in your lives!
This past weekend I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for a new fall clothing line by M.Dot Design Studio. Self-taught seamstress, Michelle Aquino, is also an extremely talented designer and her clothing amazed me! Her one of a kind garments are available at The Basement Boutique, a store in Mission Beach, as well as two other stores in San Diego.
We had a lot of fun shooting all over San Diego, with a minor hiccup in location that ended up being a great decision in the end. Be sure to check out her blog for her Design Studio or her myspace and stop by The Basement Boutique.
