Angie Baraquio Grey- Orange County CA











Over the weekend I had the pleasure of teaching a one on one class, in the O.C....I guess it was more like a two on one class with two of my favorite people....Pua and Mapu. We spent a few long hours covering every possible question, and every possible situation we could come up with. We ended our fabulous day shooting the incredible beauty that is Angela Baraquio Grey. I couldn't have asked for a better model. She had so much feedback for the girls and was effortlessly beautiful. Thank you Mapu and Pua for allowing me to help you create your dreams. I love you both and know you are headed for great success. It takes vision and courage to follow your heart. Not everyone can be that brave, even though everyone should. Remember the "why" and the "how" will always find you. Thank YOU Angie! It was such and honor.

OMG...Do you realize who this is?! Angela Perez Baraquio was crowned Ms. America back in 2001. I just remembered her since she was the first Asian-American titled for Miss America and represented my home state Hawaii. How cool is that! Wow...she still looks Great!! I had to Google her name just to make sure I was seeing right. Got your website from a Friend. Hopefully you can shoot my family someday. I am completely in love with your work!!
