Paulina

So hard to chose only a few faves of this session to put here. Pau was a delight to work with, she is not only beautiful and a great ballerina, but a very very nice girl. This session was a lot of fun. Thanks Pau for being such a great model, I loved working with you!

Mi chiquitita

The cutest baby girl ever! She is my niece. I am in love with this little human, every time she smiles it melts my heart.   Since day one I set up a permanent studio in my bedroom to take advantage of every minute i could to shoot photos.

Le Claire II

Le Claire is such a great little town. In my last visits we found a fair going on along the river side because that  weekend was going to be the Tug Fest. I love fairs, they are very interesting photo subjects, and even though it was being set up I could still shot a few frames. Of course we did some selfies too, but that day I forgot the selfie stick home so K’s arm had to do!

I had the chance to go back at night,  I got to see the fireworks on the river form the car on our way there and then went to the fair,  we listened to the Brat Pack group and even danced a bit to some oldies.

This was my last night in Iowa before I head back home.  I loved Le Claire and I hope to be back soon.

Le Claire I

Le Claire was one of my favorite places too, it is a super charming small town full of life.  We went there a few times and I got to see a lot of it.  On our way there the interesting sights started and of course we had to have a few selfies of the group

It has a lot of interesting stores full of whatever thing you can imagine.  For starters we went to see the American Pickers store, I had no idea of this show but I loved the store anyways!

The “Grasshoppers” is a house that has all it’s rooms filled with any thing you might imagine you want to buy, both old and new, there are some stairs that take you to the winery and they sell everything wine related, even the barn is full of old stuff for sale. Very nice place, I could spend a whole day in there!

We had a great day in Le Claire, we went to have dinner to Davenport and on our way back home we saw some deer on the side of the road!!  I couldn’t belive it, they were there by our side and stood there for 15 minutes without moving at all, seemed like they were posing for my lens!  I was explained by the expert that they thought I couldn’t see them and that was why they stood so still. Mom was behind watching as I took a lof of pictures of this little ones.  I was so excited! like really really excited! The perfect end for another great day in Iowa!
