~Affordable Arizona Housing~

Over the past couple of years I have become more and more aware at the outrageous state our housing market is in. Even though we find ourselves in a "buyer's" market here in Arizona, many areas are still asking astronomical prices for decent homes. Knowing the multitude of newlyweds I do I am all to aware of the stress that occurs when a couple finds themselves pregnant with their first child and want to finally settle down and buy their first home, only to discover they can't afford to buy even a tiny old home in a decent area.

That idea spurred me to create this art project that pokes little fun at the housing options that are currently available to first time home buyers in Arizona :)

Enjoy :)

Mommy's Little Helper,

Everyday when I'm sitting at my computer working, my little puppy always curls up in her chair next to the window and keeps me company, she also interrupts me ever so often so that I take a break and don't go crazy staring at the computer all day! But every time I turn around she just looks so darn cute, especially when I turn around and she is curled up in a ball upside down! So I decided to try and sneakily capture it but setting up my camera on a tripod and very ninja like would slide my had over and take a photo until she finally did the crazy upside-down maneuver. And so I thought I'd share just a few of the photos I took with you so you can see how hard it is to keep working when I have this staring at me me from the corner!

Mayra & David Flores • Febuary 2nd 2008

Joey and I had a blast hanging out with Mayra and David on saturday for their super fab modern western wedding! We started out at D'Alba Salon on 4th ave and then they had their ceremony at St. Augustine's cathedral downtown (you know... the really big white one) After that we had a quick little photo shoot downtown and then headed out to Old Tucson Studios for the reception. Here are some of my favorite images from the day so far...

I love this picture of Mayra's Mom, she is so sweet!

Have I mentioned I love taking photos of makeup???

Mayra got ready in her niece's bedroom, I loved the bright colored walls!

It wouldn't be a pangburn wedding without a mirror shot...

Now for the ceremony, St. Augustine's is under some pretty heavy restoration right now, so I had a get creative with my angles for taking this picture.

I love this photo of Mayra I got during the ceremony...

Yeah! We're Married :)

Why is twirling around in a big pouffy dress so much fun?

Isn't she gorgeous!!!


Heading out to the reception in a horse drawn carriage

Playing with off camera flash during the first dance... How cool is that!

Mayra and David had just over 350 people at their wedding, so the dance floor was just a bit crowded!

Later I pulled them outside for a quick smooch by the campfire.

I absolutely love this photo! Every time I see the little boys expression I smile

Mayra and David hired Photo Fun Booth to come to their wedding and take pictures of all their guests, Joey and I couldn't help but get in on some of the action!

It's Coming....

Wireless flash has arrived! This kind of lighting has been around for a while now and I have just never been able to figure it out to my satisfaction. But today I think I've finally beaten the beast! I'm so excited to start using this technique in more of my photography. So keep your eyes peeled you're sure to see some more images like this... but probably not quite as creepy :)
