• Hello and welcome to the CNP blog.

    Welcome to the CNP blog. Blogging was on hold for quite a bit. I was busy updating the business side of things and truthfully, I also was deciding the direction of this blog.

    As with all things, the blog had evolved. It turns out, I could write a decent story and while my heart was pulling me in that direction, time and structure was not on my side. So this blog remains. Only now, it will strictly be a place for lots of images, updates, sneak peeks… and very little words.

    I have a personal blog in the works which will be a home for personal images and thoughts; a place that’s all mine; a place to share stories.

    Keep this on your blog list as it will be updated often which is why I’m here in the first place… a good photograph.

Sometimes as creatives, you just have to get together and make the ideas in your head come to life. Stylized shoots are great opportunity to explore what’s possible and to showcase the talents of local wedding vendors. I, personally, love shooting them. So when Marissa Morales of SelaroM Events and Mayra Rodriguez of the Photo Bus EP approached me with their idea, I was all in. Together they enlisted the help of a whole slew of creative local vendors (all listed below) with whom this shoot would not have been possible. All of that said, what I loved the most about the shoot was that we were able to photograph a real couple (yay!) and they were the sweetest together. Truly, it was a pleasure to photograph them and to be able to give them some images of them together surrounded by a scene that was, in essence, created for them. Eddy and Sarid, you guys are bomb*com. Thanks for allowing yourself to be free in front of the lens.

I can’t say enough good things about this experience. I can only say thanks appropriately this time with pictures instead of words.

Cristina

I’m happy to announce that I’ve partnered with Minted to offer my clients an even bigger selection of beautifully designed cards. I love Minted’s thick luxe paper and modern designs. I also love that they offer cards for all occasions. They are a perfect choice for gorgeous save-the-dates, birth announcements, thank you cards, and of course, Christmas Cards.

HOW IT WORKS: You are welcome to use the images you’ve purchased from our photoshoots together. I’ve featured some lovely designs in my Minted Storefront, but you’re welcome to browse through the site and choose your own favorites from their many designs. Then, let me know which images you’d like me to upload to my storefront and I’ll do that for you!  You’ll receive an email that they are ready for you to use in your design. Super simple. Once it’s ready, just place your order through my storefront and you’re good to go!

Just another awesome option to get those images off your computer and in print!

Cyber Monday Special is going on now!

I love that I was able to photograph these two lovely little ladies again. I love how they came over to my place (which is not far from their place:)  But what I really, really love about photographing at my little Casa Rosa is that it gives me a a bit more control.  Control is something I don’t have in the same way with weddings or other portraits. Don’t get me wrong, my aim is still that these sessions are less about structure and more about fun. However, when I’m in control, I get to makes sure that’s the case.  It’s just funny how that works. Of course, now that I have this type of control, it also means I am up all night brainstorming on ways to make what I want to happen, happen.

I’m not going to lie. I like that problem a lot.
