Feels like Christmas

Today is just another hot summery day….but it totally feels like Christmas in the studio because…There's a new toy that came in the mail! Meet the new and beautiful, Fujifilm FinePix X100! She is a beauty…I could stare at her all day.


Photography has always been a huge part of my life and my family's life. My grandfather always took so many photos and video of his 8 sons and daughters growing up. I recently got the chance to transfer all of the beautiful film and negatives into digital files and DVDs. I spend endless hours looking through all of the footage of my dad, uncles and my aunts growing up. I am so grateful that he documented their lives…a treasure that I will always cherish and pass on to my kids one day. One of the cameras he had was this gorgeous Leica film camera that got passed down to my father and now to me. It lays on one of my shelves in my house as a beautiful decoration, but I always love looking at it and thinking about mi Abuelo.


When I came across the Fujifilm FinePix X100 a few weeks ago at a lecture, I couldn't help but think of my grandfather's camera. It has the beautiful vintage feel that my grandfather's camera has and takes amazing digital photos. When I travel, I never leave my house without my big, chunky Nikon gear; however, now I can pack a few pounds less and not have neck pains when I go on my next family vacation! I am so excited to play with this new toy and share some images with you all! Stay tuned!
