My oldest son will be 18 this year which reminds me that A I’m getting older and B he’s going to be graduating soon and is planning the rest of his life. It’s exciting to see him mature into a young man. We’ve had our tough times but at the end he’s my son and I’m very proud of him, which I don’t tell him as often.. So son if you are reading this I love you and I am proud of you! I’ve been tough on you for a reason trust me. 🙂 So here are a few pictures of my very own senior! and of course the rest of my crew that I call…… My life! love you all!

Happy Friday Internet!

I wanted to invite you all to an amazing event and trust me it’s going to be epic!! let me tell you why! “Steelo” is amazing guy and very talented dancer and more!.. The amazing part is just like photography we tell stories with our camera… Well internet he does the same but with dance serious! In January of 2009 I had the privilege and honor to meet Steelo and a few of the Groovaloos team and founder “Shooz” Bradley Rapier here in Riverside. Below are a few pictures I took while they were teaching classes to the students. I remember I had a smile a HUGE smile while documenting the whole evening. I felt like a kid at Disney Land, I wish I was lying but I’m not haha I love love Dance!

This same year they also took the winning title of Superstars of Dance how awesome is that right? Below are a few clips to see them all in action!

Now a little about Steelo Richard Vazquez:

Richard was born and raised in Bronx, New York. He moved to Puerto Rico at the age of 11/12 and began to learn how to bboy by Poeone. He continued to dance and compete winning competitions and talent shows, etc. At the age of 18 he got a modeling agent in Puerto Rico and started auditioning and touring with local Puerto Rican reageaton artist. At the age of 20 he moved to Los Angeles where he continued to pursuing bboying. He also got a dance and print agent and worked jobs such as GQ Magazine, Madonna, Oprah, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Janet Jackson, and Rihanna to name a few. He toured with Gwen Stefani, worked on movies such as Malibu’s Most Wanted, and Coach Carter. He recently caught the acting bug and is currently pursuing acting full time.

On June 20th of this year, Richard “Steelo” Vazquez, a well-known, successful dancer/bboy, suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm. He underwent emergency surgery and during the operation, suffered another rupture. After all his surgeries were complete, Steelo had four ruptures in total and left him needing extensive rehabilitation to learn to walk and talk again.
This fundraiser will support him, his wife, and his one year old son during this long recovery process.

Well I thought I was going to be able to wait until at least until December but apparently I have no patience haha! I wanted to first share how my blog first looked like 2 years ago wow 2 years already whew !! where does time go?

 

So here it is! I know that when I first started doing research about ( branding myself ) I actually didn’t KNOW what in earth my style was at the time. I heard a lot of, you need to soul search you need find yourself type of deal… WELL I don’t think when I first thought of my color scheme for my blog  that I was in tuned with my soul haha. So here it is down below! The Logo has been the same thanks to my amazing friend Aurora who help bring my vision to life and  designed it!

 

 

 

And then there was last year’s idea….well technically this year 2011 I wanted to clean it up little. I knew that I wanted more white it seemed it bit more cleaner and elegant to me.  I started to look at my way of shooting my style per say. I always loved just crisp clear images without filters and extra stuff added to them.. So the color white said it all to me! Or should I say spoke to me in a way where I wanted to display my work with the white scheme.

 

 

 

And now here is my new look for 2012!! Doesn’t it look nice and clean? =)  I absolutely LOVE IT!! And I hope my viewers out there enjoy it as much as I do. I also love my new section on my  blog called ” my schedule ” here you can find new information about upcoming shoots.  I even added a new plugin called Flaunt books where you can now vote for your favorite image! Well that’s it for now.

We were a bit scared at first, we had a lot of people tell us why not to get a pit bull. You hear horror stories about children and adults being attacked by them etc. So needless to say I did my home work! But I am proud to say I am a new owner of a gorgeous blue nosed American Terrier aka Pit bull! I am beyond happy with this new fellow, he is so loving and we are going to do our best to show him to love others as well. So far he is getting along great with our children and our pet Chihuahua! Check out the few pictures I took today of them in action it’s hilarious to see them chase each other!

Love him!
