“What a blessing it is when you come across a photographer that can take the fantasy one has in their mind and create it in real life." 
Lisa Rodriguez

"I want my images to make your heart melt when you see your kids beautiful face and think of how blessed you are to have him or her. I want my images to cause for you to can’t stop looking at them, and that you can share with other the joy of being a parent. It has been like this for me…I can’t wait for you to feel the same! Best feeling in the world!"

I still remember the exhilarating feeling when I held my precious little one in my arms for the first time, the hours and hours I gazed into her squishy little face, her tiny little hands, and feet… time stood still. The world shifted and nothing else matter as much as the precious life I was holding.

I had three exhilarating moments. 

As I enter this lifetime journey called motherhood, the world kept revolving with each new milestones as they kept growing, and so was my desire to keep them forever. My husband gave me the best gift a mother could ever receive…a camera. 
I documented each big milestone and every little silly moment too. And I’m so glad I did! I have an immeasurable amount of my own children’s childhood memories in photographs I can put together a big puzzle of their childhood. Each year for their birthday I grew a little sentimental of how fast they were growing, so I'd looked back at the many photographs I had and without knowing it, I became their story-teller. Reminiscing and retelling their stories gave them a sense of belonging, security and confidence in who they are now, and that makes me so happy.

I can’t keep them from growing up, but I can give you the gift I was given; beautiful portraits that will always allow you relive that amazing feeling every time you see your child’s photographs.

Before I was a photographer, I was a mother.
