- I love to travel (who doesn't?), but I especially enjoy going back to places that hold important memories for me. Magdalena, with its picturesque streets and rich history, is one of those special places for me. It is also a way to reconcile my past with my present, and having a camera in my hand allows me to do just that: judge less and understand more. Check out the link in profile to learn more about the traditions and history of this town (with lots of pretty photos, too). Are there any places that you visit that have a special place in your heart?

- Feeling a bit overwhelmed, I caught myself complaining about needing a break the other day. Juggling a full-time job, my photography, personal care, family and social life is no easy feat. In my journal, when I struggle with confusion, I often pray to be where I can be of service. This has been my busiest photography season yet. As I type that, I can't help but feel an enormous amount of gratitude. A few months ago, I wrote about the hardest thing for me to do: I asked for help. It wasn't easy and it made me feel extremely vulnerable. I was letting you into my hardships, but thinking back, it was the only way out. You made it possible. With your support and encouragement, you continue to give a space where I can be of service. I've said it before: I love social media. I love the opportunities and possibilities that it has afforded me, but most importantly, I love it because behind the screen reading these words is you, my dear friend. From the bottom of my heart, a big THANK YOU!

- Today on the blog I'm sharing a super sweet and touching story. Michelle (@montijotres) was my very first client to come to Tucson from Phoenix. She had been following my work for a while on Instagram and wanted a mini session with her daughter in the heart of Tucson. Her desire was to honor and remember her beloved sister Celeste, who passed away a few years ago. Pictured above is her sweet daughter Mia. Follow the link in my profile to read all about sisterly love, organ donation and hummingbirds! #missingcelestemachiche

- This weekend, I treated myself and watched "Loving Vincent," a film about the life of the painter Vicent van Gogh. I've been interested in van Gogh's work because as you may know, I love using color and I especially love the honey yellow, the sky blue, and other colors in his palette that he used to produce many of his works of art. But I'm also interested to know the real person behind the genius that he was. Without spoiling the movie for you, I will just tell you that it is visually beautiful, as it took a team of 100 people to paint all of the scenes following van Gogh's style.  Mainly, what I find the most interesting about the life of the painter of The Starry Night is the following: - He was religiously devoted to his art and found beauty in the most unexpected circumstances. He sought to document everyday life and was always seen painting portraits of his friends. -He was a genius who was not recognized during his lifetime. Genius is often accompanied by mental illness, so great art is often preceded by tremendous emotional pain. - He was bullied all his life, yet van Gogh felt that there was nothing more artistic than loving people.  My takeaway: loving one another should be our main form of art, and we should really treat each other like works of art in progress.

- A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to participate in a @borderlinks delegation. Growing up in Mexico with my mom while my dad worked in the U.S., many of the topics we explored during the delegation were not completely foreign to me. However, I was deeply challenged to look at the many forms of privilege in my own life, and what my role is in helping to provide more equality and justice in our communities. If we want to see some change, it has to start with us. Follow the link in my profile to read more.

- A few years ago, I didn't know how to relax. I felt overworked but didn't really find much purpose in what I was doing. As a consequence, I experienced severe burn out that led me to make the decision to switch careers. After some hard lessons, I've learned to work and serve with purpose. I now enjoy what I do so much more, and I've learned that travelling is one of the things that keeps my soul fresh. What are your strategies to avoid burnout? Please share!
