It’s officially been a year since I published Jazzmine Marie: A Visual Diary. I created this blog to freely share my art and the stories behind my photography without the anxiety I experience with social media. I also started this blog as a dedication to my grandma, Bettie Marie, for gifting me my first camera at age eight.

I just wanted to share some photos of my “location crush,” Palm Canyon, located here in San Diego at Balboa Park. It’s one of the many trails that run through the park, but this one in particular just so happens to be my favorite visually. I’ve been obsessed with this location since I first laid eyes on it almost a decade ago. I have this thing for palm trees, and Palm Canyon just so happens to have over 50 different species of them!!! It could be a Californian thing. It could be because I’m an earth sign (♑️). Who knows, but the obsession is REAL.

I recently had the chance to collaborate with my friend Brandon of B. Towner Photography and gorgeous model Yamillette Flores. B. is a veteran, like myself, who has discovered a love of shooting environmental fashion portraits. Personally, I’ve always loved fashion photography. I still subscribe to printed magazines like Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar just to see the fashion photography editorials. Gucci ads are always my favorite because I never know what to expect (see examples below).

To anyone grieving a loss this holiday season, know that my heart is with yours. This year was my first Christmas/birthday without my Grandpa Ralph, who passed away earlier this year in September. Since I could remember, my grandparents have always been the first people I’ve talked to every Christmas morning, but things were different this year. I called my grandma, and that’s when reality hit. It’s an adjustment for all of us, but I feel for my grandmother the most since they were together for 60+ years (could you imagine being with one person for that long???!).

If you didn’t already know, I’m a photography student. I started taking photography classes two years ago, after switching from nursing to a photo & digital imaging major (I talk more about this in my introductory blog). It’s been a fantastic experience being able to do what I’ve always wanted to do. It’s also cool being surrounded by people who feel the same way. The photo department is terrific at my school. We have a studio, darkroom, Mac desktops, scanners, printers, cameras, lenses, strobes, and pretty much whatever equipment we need available for check-out. We also have FREE access to all the Adobe Creative Cloud apps, which is a huge bonus since I practically live in Photoshop and Lightroom.
