"I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to do what I love, I feel blessed that you believe in me and trust me to capture those special moments.After so much work my new exhibit is finally here ! This time is all about love and the people we love.So for a very special month, a very special show for all of you... 360° Love is dedicated to you guys!
TOAB Note: I hope that you may be able to attend Anahi's opening at Tre Fratelli or be able to see it sometime during it's exhibition. To me, her photography speaks of a great talent to capture special qualities in her subjects and scenes by utlizing great scope in composition, set-up, lighting and color, and just basically making her subjects comfortable enough so that Anahi is able to bring out the best in them. (In other words, I am saying I think her work is good). Above you will see an example of her work (funny that I would pick the shoes)...but if you wish to see more visit her website at http://www.anahiphotoart.com.
