And when the opportunity arose to shoot with none other than MMA Champion Chris Rios, it was a chance too exhilarating to pass up. Join me as I recount the thrilling experience of capturing the essence of this champion in action.

The Build-Up: The anticipation mounted as I prepared my equipment, knowing I was about to document the prowess of a true athlete. Chris Rios, was the subject of our shoot. As I geared up, the excitement pulsated through every fiber of my being.

Meeting the Champion: From the moment I met Chris, his aura of confidence and humility was palpable. Despite his accolades and accomplishments, he greeted me with a warm smile and a handshake that exuded both strength and kindness. It was clear that behind the fighter's exterior was a person driven by passion and dedication.

The Shoot Begins: Entering his training facility felt like stepping into a battlefield, albeit one filled with camaraderie and respect. With every punch and kick, his determination radiated, and I knew capturing this essence would be the highlight of our shoot.

Capturing the Essence: With each click of the camera, I aimed to freeze moments of intensity and focus. Whether it was the sweat glistening on his brow or the determination etched in his eyes, every shot told a story of resilience and dedication. Working alongside Chris, I was struck by his willingness to push boundaries and explore creative angles, making the shoot an unforgettable collaboration.

Conclusion: As the shoot came to an end, I reflected on the privilege of witnessing firsthand the dedication and passion that drive champions like Chris Rios. Beyond his impressive record in the cage, it was his humility and commitment to his craft that left a lasting impression. Shooting with Chris was more than just a professional opportunity; it was a reminder of the power of perseverance and the thrill of chasing dreams. In the arena of life, we all have our battles to fight, and Chris Rios exemplifies what it means to face them with courage and conviction.

I started photography because I just love taking pictures. I remember using a sony and canon point and shoot, & now shooting with my Nikon dslr. It's just amazing to see the differences! 

Kate is such an amazing person to work with! Almost ALL of her frames where A+++

I'm so happy I was able to work with such an incredible talent here in Reno.

Mommy & me with Cali & Rikki  

"She's a LITTLE TOMBOY"- Cali

Mommy and me Session


     Right from the get go this little girl was in charge. Where ever she wanted to go I go! Rikki reminded me of my daughter Ava, they would have gotten along so well if she came along with the shoot. Hopefully one day they can meet and play together?!

It was fun trying to look for a huge FLOWER for you, and I learned that Rikki has a pet bunny. How adorable is that? We did some walking around the park, I didn't think our walk was that far until we started walking back to the Dinosaur park. haha

Hope I get to capture more special moments with you two!

Mommy and me with Keisha & Landon Mommy & Me 05/04/14



      I work with Keisha at the bank and when she asked me to do her photos with her son I felt HONORED!!! Her 2 yrs old boy Landon is just way too ADORABLE!!I only saw Landon once in person when he was playing with his grandma outside of our work. It was pure joy to be able to shoot these two. My father Armando Gestoso took almost all of the photos, I took a few in the end and will upload here later on. My mom came along to the shoot and fell in LOVE with this little boy. Up till now she asks me how's Landon. LOL And from looking at the photos taken that day I saw my mom in most of the photos.

Thank you once again for asking me to do your photos! Hope we do MANY MANY MANY more in the future. :)
