Pachuco Style

I spent most of the rainy day weekend editing
But during a midday break I left the house to get some fresh air
Dropped off some books at the library 
and picked up some new ones
It's like a treasure hunt for me
when finding new reading material
And this time I found a nice little gem
I was digging thru the stacks and one book, small and buried,
stuck out: 

A photography/poetry book

I flipped it open and my eyes landed on thick, black eyeliner - 
chola style
I brought it home

I loved the pictures in the book (photography by Jose Galvez)

Some of the pics were taken in Tucson, AZ 
at about the time I was 17 or 18 yrs old 
I can relate to a lot of the images

I don't really like poetry but with lines like:

"All the vatos - loving their menudo"

I couldn't help liking the poem in the book (Luis Alberto Urrea)

Not sure how it is that I had never heard of this
book, but I'm glad I found it.

DAG Fashions

Grand Opening!

This post is a little late.
Okay, maybe a lot late - holiday photo sessions took 
up so much of my time! But I couldn't go without sharing these pics 
from the Grand Opening of DAG Fashions 
at Dana Park in Gilbert. 
It was a blast and I was so happy to be part 
of it all, especially since I was able to 
shop while I was there!
With such cute clothes & styles.. 
no complaining here :) 

Tina, Aide & the crew

Inside the store
I got one of these scarves and I'm so in love with it!

The inspirations for DAG

Refreshments! DAG cookies made by the awesome Cakeuphoria
The official Grand Opening model - Adrianna. She won the model search and did awesome modeling the DAG styles - so cute! 

Seriously.. adorable!

So pretty!
Dominique was also on hand to help show off some chic outfits..

Family session - Blood & Bond

Some families
are made up of different fragments
all from unique places & spaces
but like a wonderful little puzzle
with pieces that fit together perfectly :)

This thread is actually part 1 of a 3 family shoot
I so appreciate that these siblings get together
year after year
for photos from the little crown
