Happy Holidays!

Dear Friends, Family, & Clients (who are, of course, friends),

Well, 2006 is coming to a close, and I am very fortunate to be able to travel home to visit my family in Texas. Over the next 10 days I'll have limited access to email, but please please don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions, ideas, requests, or just to chat! I absolutely love my family, but I don't mind a break every once in a while. ;)

I want to thank everyone for being a part of one of my personal best years ever! I also want to thank everyone who helped me through the tough, stressful parts of the year. I am so excited about next year, when I'll be graduating from CMU, taking on some challenging (but fun) projects at work, and of course, seeing my wedding and portrait photography business bloom like a garden! Being a photographer is really a dream come true.

Very soon in 2007 I hope to be debuting a new website, new journal style, and new sample albums! Keep checking back for updates.

Even though I didn't anticipate any wedding bookings until the begining of the year, I am already about 50% booked for 2007! Since I will be in school until August and it is very important to me to be sure I have plenty of quality time for each couple, I havelimited availability. If you're thinking about booking...stop thinking and give me a call!

Over the next couple of weeks I hope you enjoy friends, family, good food, love, memories, photographs and the hope of possibilities in the new year. I am so excited to be a part of that. :)

Happy Holidays!

Jaime Soria

Oh goodness, well it's nearly 4am here, and I *do* have to get up for work soon, lol. But I just couldn't wait to get Jaime's photos finished before the holidays!

Saturday afternoon Jaime braved the bitter cold weather in San Jose for an awesome photoshoot! Warning to all you who haven't had a session with me before....we just take a walk, and we stop wheverever we want to shoot. So that could be 10 minutes away, or more likely, every 10 steps! But she's a trooper and didn't make a peep about having to take her coat off every 2 minutes. :)

Jaime Soria is a gorgeous actress (, check back soon for the updated site) and was a blast to shoot with! Check out the slideshow, you know you can't fight it!

Here are a few selected favorites:

Well, for a couple reasons. First, my shoot last Saturday was rescheduled due to rain, and that's super disappointing! I need my photo fix each week or I just don't feel like myself. :)

Second, I switched to the new google version of blogger....which would be cool....Except almost all the names from comments are gone!! Now it just says anonymous. Hopefully new comments will be properly labeled, and that was just an artifact of the move. I guess there are worse things that could happen to a gal, but this one made me throw a tiny tantrom (in my head).

Hopefully I'll have new photos to show this weekend from a fun shoot I have lined up. I'm also hoping that I can get my Christmas shopping both started and finished on Sunday!!

Stay tuned!

Bryan Thomas

Yesterday afternoon I took a walk in downtown San Jose with Bryan Thomas, a real photographer's dream! He's stylish, has tons of personality, can laugh on cue, and was up for any idea I suggested. Bryan is an awesome radio producer, owns his own dj company (, and is interested in venturing into rodeo anouncing!

All right ladies, this slideshow is just for you. ;)
