Jasmine Star Workshop

One of the really cool things about photography is that no two photographers will capture a moment exactly the same way. And when two photographers work together, they will each walk away with more insight into a moment than they had to begin with. Now, imagine 20 photographers working together...

I (Seleta) was blessed in such a way on April 20th when I attended a Jasmine Star Workshop. I got to shoot a gorgeous couple alongside Jasmine and 19 other incredibly talented photographers. Being surrounded by so many unique and gifted people opened my eyes to be able to see more through my lens.

Michelle and Colton were the brave couple who volunteered to model for us! They were married in January and eagerly agreed to get all dressed up again for us. Colton, who is in the Marines, has since been stationed in Virgina. They are just beginning their beautiful life together and are so in love!

Here are my favorite images from the day...

Thank you Jasmine and J.D. for the awesome workshop! And thank you Michelle and Colton for allowing me into your world. I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, and fun!

Dax's Debut!

Ahhh...parenthood! Greg and Krista claimed this title in March when they welcomed little Dax into the world. Well, not so little...he was 21 inches long! After a roller coaster labor with some very scary moments, Dax made his debut. Here is a sneak preview of some of our favorites...

Krista was quite thrilled to be sporting her Starbucks mug again...complete with caffeine fix!

Daddy insisted on at least one crying photo. This was pretty much the only shot we got; Dax was a trooper the whole time we were there! I actually think he rather enjoyed the spotlight.

When we first put Dax in the basket, he looked at us like, "are you kidding?" But as you can see, he made himself quite comfortable in there!

These three are off to a beautiful start. Greg and Krista are naturally wonderful parents blessed with a perfect little boy.

Greg, Krista, and Dax ~ words cannot express how incredibly happy we are for you. Being a parent is truly an amazing and awesome experience. We are so excited to have been a part of your journey so far and look forward to continuing on with you!

Calvary Chapel Camarillo-Easter at the Adolfo Camarillo Ranch House 2010

Happy Easter from the Dobrosky Family! Even though it was a little on the chilly side, we spent a beautiful morning at Calvary Chapel Camarillo's Easter service. Close to 2,500 people gathered to celebrate at the Adolfo Camarillo Ranch House in Camarillo. It's a toss up between Easter and Christmas for me...never mind, I love them equally! Our son, Ian, is becoming quite a celebrity on Sundays now; he takes his guitar everywhere and rocks worship! Terry, on the other hand, takes his camera everywhere and rocks photography! I am often left carrying everything that isn't a guitar or a camera. I think I'll make sure I get the camera next time...

Below are some great moments from the day...

Pastor Bruce and Pastor Roger praying before service.

Here's Ian with two of the guitar players. Justin, the blonde, is Ian's new fan!

Justin and his beautiful wife Lauren leading worship. We spent some time with these two after service and discovered what an awesome and blessed couple they are!

Justin invited Ian up on stage after service to rock out...20 minutes later, we were able to get him down!
We hope all of you had an awesome Easter!
