Last week I was asked to take some pictures for a magazine of the Sakura Brazilian JiuJitsu gym in Dover, NJ.
This is one of the many pictures I took from that night. 

It's an awesome gym, not only to train but to have fun and make friends!

Capturing E V E R Y T H I N G

This a picture from my last portrait photo shoot with my good friend Veronica. 

It's funny how for the longest time I only liked taking pictures of nature and everything BUT people.
To be honest, I think I didn't like taking pictures of people because I was so oh so awkward about it. Like I was afraid of what to tell my 'model(s)' to do.. how to pose, everything.
But, now that I am trying it out more, I learned that I love it. 
I get this energy of excitement and of good vibes. I love it, I love who I am when I am taking pictures.
I feel like my full creative potential comes out. Its awesome.
Anyways, as I was saying... I definitely see myself doing portraits and maybe events in the future.
The more I take pictures, the more I realize it doesn't matter what the subject is but I just simply love doing it. 
Ugh, if I can only capture moments every waking moment.. I think I really would.

Henry Castellanos

Last night I went to go to see a EFC Fight in person for the first time. 
Up above is a picture that was taken by me of one of the guys that I was fighting last night. 
My boyfriend was training him boxing leading up to the event. 
I must say I never was into this whole boxing or jujitsu thing ever.. but oddly enough I am starting to really getting into it.
Anyways, this guy (Henry Castellanos) did an amazing job! He didn't win the fight because of one simple mistake but it was truly an awesome fight. I would say this might of been the crowds favorite fight of the night. 
Anyways, I wanted to say it was cool how I could see part of the process leading up to the fight. 

I wish Henry the greatest luck and many blessings for his future fighting career.
