Introducing a fabulous photographer

Last weekend we ventured out of the City!!! Yup, we headed North to Marin, to visit Miguel and Heather and their gorgeous sons. It was so lovely driving over the Golden Gate Bridge at night too. Miguel is a serious foodie from Montgat (Spain) and he made the most delicious fideua with a very garlicky aioli. It was gorgeous!
I was in for another treat and had the pleasure of meeting Maegan (Heather's sister) who was visiting from San Diego. I found out that she was a photographer. I asked to see her work and was amazed!

Maegan was about 9 when she took her first photo; "I started by posing my dog Kelsey in front of anything pretty and making her sit there forever while I would take picture after picture. Then I started taking pictures of anything that caught my eye, driving my parents nuts with all the film they would have to develop. To this day I take pictures of anything that catches my attention for more than a few seconds, because I know that it's something worth remembering".

I asked Maegan what interests her in photography; "It's being able to catch a moment in time that you will never get back. To capture the beauty of something so you can share with others and show people the world, the way you see it".

Mothers do know best, as Maegan's Mom convinced her to submit her artwork to The San Diego's Union Tribune's local photography competition and she was selected. This is the photography that was featured:

  1. Hey Valarie! I just saw Meagan post a link for this post on Facebook and I thought I'd check it out since that first picture posted is of me. Maegan's my best friend, and I agree, she is quite the photographer! I just subscribed to your blog so now I can follow you and check out all your next posts!
