City Chicks | RGV Event Photographer

Before I left to Tulsa, I had the pleasure of photographing City on a Hill's CITY CHICKS exclusive dinner event. I love capturing the body of Christ helping out a brother or women enjoying fellowship with one another, or really...just a bunch of friends having a heck of a good time. For this particular event, I couldn't stop admiring these gift bags. The amount of time these chicks put into all the details from the hand painted banners to the hand made gift bags (and they say they don't really have artistic talent, pft!) Here are some photos of gift bags Pastor Noemi assisted in putting together and the handmade flowers and tags were made by Worship Pastor Gilma. I absolutely LOVED these!! I made a hair clip out of my flower :)

If you attended the CITY CHICKS exclusive dinner, don't forget to comment your favorite moment of the event. Thanks!

When I was in college taking a public speech class, they asked us students to name our favorite speakers. Some said presidents, some named movie stars, I said "My sister, Noemi". She's so expressive and a very good speaker (and translator!).

After that we had a delicious dinner catered from Johnny Carinos PLUS there was a surprise---J Lori Photography gave a $110 value gift certificate to one lucky chick! I was excited to break the rules and package this gift certificate with a diva touch :) Notice the hand bag on the last's made out of paper (thanks living locurto!!) Gift Certificates are available and come packaged in all sorts of cute styles. If you're interested in giving the gift of custom photography to a special someone, DON'T hesitate to send me a message! That special someone will surely appreciate it.

I also want to introduce you to our Canvas Wall Portraits. Truly a stunning way to show off your portraits. This museum quality canvas is wrapped around a stretcher frame so that the photo's edges are visible on the sides of the frame. For a limited time only our Canvas Wall Portraits will come with the option of custom framing or simply covered with hanging hardware attached.

If you have old family photos, needlework, certificates, objects and mementos you want to preserve or put in a beautiful frame for all to see, head on over to {THE HOUSE OF FRAMES} They have the most kind patient staff---plus they have a sale going on right now!!
