Ofrendas Del Corazon - Heart Art Auction

I recently photographed Minette and Ernesto's wedding, while talking to them I found out that they are part of this wonderful Heart Art Auction in benefit of the Michael L. Rutledge foundation.

What a wonderful thing to do ! We can all help through our art submissions, and also by attending the art auction.

Please read below and pass it along !

Come and join us for a night of art, music, and celebration! Ofrendas del Corazón is a silent "heart art" auction, which will take place Friday, February 8, 2009 , at the Habanero Café in downtown Pharr . Between 50 and 60 wooden hearts have been given to various students, teachers, and members of the community such as local artists, musicians and business owners to decorate. We have been really fortunate to get some of our hearts signed by authors such as Sandra Cisneros, Rene Saldana, and Xavier Garza, David Rice and others. Comedian Carlos Mencia also signed one, as well as the rock band Evanescence and latin-rock band Del Castillo. Most authors and musicians have also donated a signed book or CD to accompany their heart. All the proceeds from the event will benefit the Michael M. Rutledge Legacy Award. Michael Rutledge was a sophomore at PSJA North involved with the Raider Band and the Dual Language program. The first award will be given in 2009 to a PSJA North Dual Language student who has already been accepted into a college or university. The heart has taken a significant meaning for us since Michael, through his parents’ gift of organ donation, was able to give life to four Texas residents.

The Serafy's

Hello my dear blog readers :)

I'm still on the road visiting San Antonio, Austin and Dallas photographing portrait sessions. I've been shooting away and also working on a few sessions I recently shot in the valley. There are lots of exciting things coming up, don't want to give too much away yet, but it involves lots of travel, a very nice get together with friends and a contest....so keep coming back for more updates :)

For now I'd like to share a sneak peek from the Serafy's session at St. Joseph Academy. I really enjoyed working with all of them, they are super nice and very well behaved boys ;)

Also I'd like to add a quick reminder...senior portrait session is around the corner, if you'd like to schedule a session just shoot me an email to get additional information.


Thank you guys ! It was a lot of fun!





I heart this one :)



Special thanks to Mrs. Viveca Serafy, thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your boys :)

Sincerely,
Anahi :)
