Last month Brea and I went back home to Texas for her sister Brandi's wedding. It was so nice to see all of our family and friends. The wedding ceremony was held in Lydia and Jim's beautiful backyard out in Dripping Springs, just outside of Austin, TX. Of course, I was the photographer for the day. Brandi and Dave looked so happy, it was great to be a part of their wedding, we wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Luckily, the weekend we went home was also Mother's Day, so we got a chance to spend quality time with our moms
I went to Waco to visit my relatives on Mother's Day. I got a chance to visit with my Uncle Ken, his family, my Aunt Margie and Unle Bob and my grandmother, which I don't get to do but a couple of times a year.
This month has been very exciting for me. I got another promotion at my job. I am officially the new assistant Studio Manager at Milk and Formula Studios. This is great for me because it means I have a "normal" 9-5 job, instead of the crazy hours I was working as the night guy. I am doing more paperwork and some supervising, which is a pleasant change for me. This also means I have more one on one time with clients and photographers than before. When it comes to work, change is always good.
I have been working day and night on creating the website and taking photos for the Federation of Black Cowboys
My friend Jimmy Martinez, a comedian and actor in NYC, just got his own TV show on Fuse TV! I have been hanging out and photographing him since I met him at a comedy show this year at the Improv. He lives up in Harlem on 125th St. and 5th ave. It's so rich in character and beautiful there and I try to go there at least a couple of times a week. The people are so warm and there is so much history in the community. Everyone knows Jimmy in his neighborhood. He's the type of guy you never forget after you meet him once, because he's so hilarious, has a really loud voice and he's a great guy. You can see him and his TV Show at http://www.myspace.com/jimmymar. His cousin Miles Maker of Miles Maker Images and Talent, is a extremely talented Director and His cousin Hassan Bakr is the Executive Producer
Brea is flying out to Atlanta, GA next weekend to star in a play, The Arrangement. I am so proud of her. She is working so hard and it is starting to really pay off. She is studying at the William Esper as a full-time 2 year acting student as well as auditioning an acting all the time. She is also doing promotions part-time.
I hope all is well and will keep you updated on everything soon.
