"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014"




Wow, it's been awhile since I've updated this project! The end of my pregnancy was really tough so I didn't have time to post every week and now our son is here. Still trying to find balance in everything. Hoping to stay updated from now on.

Introducing Ezra Reign, born June 6/30/14 :)

Can't wait to meet my little boy! :)

2014 52 Week Project {Personal} {Practising Simplicity} I'm starting the new year with a 52 week project by Jodi of Practising Simplicity. The theme is "A portrait of my daughter, son or children, once a week, every week, in 2014." I'm really hoping to stick with it as I didn't finish last year's mommy project with 516 Photography. I'll be posting pics of Hannah, the doggies Ginger, Logan and Mojo, and my growing baby bump. Hope you follow me on this project and enjoy my pics! I'll be updating the blog every Sunday. :)

Here are the links:

Happy Valentine's Day! {Personal} Happy Valentine's Day! It was a very special day for us! We found out the gender of our baby! We're so excited! We've been waiting for this day! Hannah wanted to wear her big sister shirt and reveal the gender to everyone, so we headed to the park and took some last minute pics. :)

Hannah couldn't blow the glitter from one hand so we had to do it with both hands, lol!

Hot off the press {Personal} As another project of mine this year, I'm finally going to get my pictures off my hard drive and get them printed with the professional lab I go to. I've been slacking so bad on this, it's about time I get to it! I wanted to share my recent purchases. Love them all especially the photo cube, it's my favorite! Next up are photo books. :)

Happy New Year! {Personal} Just wanted to say *THANK YOU!!!* to those that continue to support me in my photography journey.

I'm looking forward to growing and learning more in the new year. :)

Enjoy some personal pics over the holidays...

JD turns one {Personal} {Child Photography} During my stay in Florida, my cousin asked me to take pictures of her little family. Of course I said yes! Turns out, we didn't get to do family portraits but instead we did her son JD's 1 year old birthday portraits. It got dark fast, so it was a quick shoot. Got some shots of lil man smiling and not smiling. He wasn't feeling it in the end, lol! Enjoy some pics from his session! :)

Ce, I hope you love all the pics! Thank you for letting me capture this age in JD's life. I hope to see you all again soon! Love u!

Rest in Peace Lola {Personal} What an emotional time it has been for my family and I with the loss of our Lola two weeks ago. She meant so much to all of us, and although a couple weeks have gone by, sadness and happiness still surround me...sadness because she is no longer here with us; happiness because she is in heaven now, no longer suffering. My family from all over the world flew to Las Vegas and we came together in honor of her. It was a moment in our lives we will never forget.

Lola had a blessed life of 96 years. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. I'm so thankful for all the memories I have with her and that Hannah had a chance to know her. I miss her voice and laughter so much. She was the best grandma! I love you Lola! Rest in peace.

My Ballerina {Personal} Hannah had her first ballet class two weeks ago and I finally got around to posting them. She had been practicing weeks before and on that day, we woke up extra early to get ready. When we got there, she couldn't contain her excitement. She was so eager to get started, lol! I'm so proud of my little ballerina! She did really good! :)

Project Ten - Hair {Personal} {Project Ten} I'm so excited to participate in the Project Ten Challenge! Each month has a theme and you are to post 10 images of that theme. This month's theme is hair.

Wetlands Park {Personal} Just some personal pics from this past Monday at Wetlands Park. It was our first time here. We wanted to stay longer but it was just too windy. Vegas winds are crazy! We played a little at the children's park area and took a walk on their short trail. We'll definitely come back on a non windy day. Enjoy! :)

We definitely had some good laughs during our session. Special thanks to their parents for letting me borrow them for 2 hours. :) Also, to my hubby for being my assistant. You da best, lol!

Lola {Personal} It was our first time visiting Lola {Grandma} at the care home. She was resting when we got there so I felt bad that the lady had to wake her up. Right away, I could tell she's gotten worse since the last time I seen her on Thanksgiving Day. You could tell the days are getting longer for her and she's ready to go home to the Lord. Every time I see her, I always start with "Hi Lola, how are you?" She always replies "I'm getting stronger." I say "Yea, you are" and we both laugh. I wasn't sure if she had the energy to respond to me when I asked how are you, but she did! She said I'm getting stronger and even laughed, lol! That made me smile! :) Of course I brought my camera with me, so I didn't waste any time and took lots of pictures. She was really happy to see Hannah, hugging her so tight, it brought tears to my eyes. She hadn't eaten lunch yet so I was able to get some pictures while she was eating and they still had their Christmas tree up, so I got some beautiful bokeh in the background. :)

Happy Birthday Hannah! Mommy & Daddy love you! :)

First Blog {Personal} My first blog! Woah! So I'm not much of a blogger. I've never been the type to talk openly about my life on the internet but I thought I'd give it a try and step out of my comfort zone. :)

First off, I wanted to thank everyone who supported my brother and I with Aguilar Photography. I'm sure you are all wondering what happened to us. Well, in a nutshell, my brother and I are two different photographers. While my heart lies within families, children, pets and couples; he is more with abstract, architecture, landscape, HDR, flowers, bugs, etc. We both have two different editing styles as well, so it felt right for us to go our separate ways and learn/perfect our niche. No matter where the road takes us individually, he will always be my first inspiration! He got me started and for that, I am thankful! :) If you want to check him out, you can add him as a friend on Facebook or check out his Society 6 page where you can purchase his photos on canvases. He is awesome!!! :)

I also wanted to say THANK YOU to family and friends that have liked my page and continue to support me. I know I'm new to the photography world and everyone else is doing it, I just hope that you will give me a chance and grow with me in my journey. This business isn't as easy as some may think. It's alot of hard work and sacrifice, but at the end of the day, it has all been worth it. :)

Anyway, thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to read my first short blog, lol! Happy hump day! :)

<3 Viv
