Here is part two of the Jose Villa Workshop I was so lucky enough to attend this past November. On this day the light was just gorgeous and photographing all of this was such an honor for me. The Hacienda Del Carmen in located in Guadalajara, Mexico. It's so gorgeous! Not only do you want to sit down and take in all the beauty, but exploring the surrounding city was a real treat as well. Mexico is a place so close to my heart (as a kid we would go to see my grandparents at least once a year during the summer). We always landed in Guadalajara and traveled down South to Colima where my family is from. I remember my grandmother crying when we would leave back to the states. She'd stand by the gate in the driveway and wave goodbye as we drove off. I'd always turn around in my seat and watch her from the car window until I couldn't see her any more. I know she was thinking she would have to wait another year until she saw us face to face. Gosh I miss her so much. I miss Mexico so much too--the people, the food, the scents--everything. I can't wait to go back.
