Do you know that in Spain this is a classic breakfast? Olive oil is part of the culture and a good one doesn't need anything else. Other versions are with tomatoes and garlic. Many nutritionists say that is also a healthy breakfast option. I remember when

Yesterday, while I was making my coffee I was thinking what to have for breakfast... I saw @soyfinlandesa "pan con aceite" . Done! . . . #LifestylePhotographerLife #SpanishBreakfast

They are modern, food and architecture lovers and they picked the De Young as scenography for their engagement photo session.

I always say I get inspired by architecture but because I LOVE people more, I passed from design buildings to photograph people in beautiful spaces. Herzog (one of the architects of the De Young) said in an interview "The architecture that draws us like a magnetic field. And we, who after all create this electromagnetic field for our projects? This projection surface, this plane of intersection, the almost-identity of the architecture and the architect. And we thus create this tension and are subject to it, despite years of professional experience, despite indifference, despite a passionless manner? The architectonic project is, as the name says, a projection, an intellectual thought-projection from body to body." . . : @bylorenaphotography #ByLorenaPhotography #ArchitectLifestyle #engagementSession

Give them a bowl with two handles and you will see them with the cutest faceless one!

This real and authentic moment is part of my lifestyle stock photography collection because I approve my photography in the same way for commercial or for my adored real families. I'm always fascinated by people behavior, especially children... it makes me be faster in capture those moments for my clients and get ready with my camera settings. I also love the light at noon for breakfast and when I'm shooting around the kitchen! I'd like to hear what is something your family kids do one and another time and repeat again and again! . . . #LifestylePhotography #cavanImages

24 years ago I gave my mom a kiss and said goodbye until the next day. It was the last time I heard her. I don't have photos of our days, I don't think I have one photo alone with her, I don't have photos of our complicity and love (yes, I have few photos

I was an incredibly passionate architect student and what I wanted was create a city for her and for me to visit her where I could bring all those memories. Then I did it, my final project to became an architect was that place... Many years later, after lived in differents countries and worked as an interior architect (the closest to people), after being a mom, and after having photography as a personal passion, I had a special dream with her, I got a new camera and I signed up back to school, the only class I took that was not a new software was photography, I cried during that first class and I understood I had to do it the rest of my life, from that day I have signed in many classes as I could, I have been reading and photographing every day without stopping, learning and working full-time for my dream and because I believe an archival photo has the most precious value when people left. Becuase I believe in the power of a photo, because I believe that as in architecture the light can create space, in photography the light can keep alive lives. Yesterday, I had another intense dream with her, then I woke up thinking it was 24 years ago the last time I gave a kiss, and I don't have photos...! I feel honored when I can be part of making "A Day in your Life" alive for the rest of your life and for the future generations.

I am offering 40-60% off for bookings made in February. To know more about these sessions go to bylorena.com and click on A Day in The Life. Photo was 4 years ago, a selfie with my son while we were studying light! . . . #ADayInTheLife #LifestylePhotographer #BayArea

My favorite creative American person said: "The details are not the details. They make the design".

Do you know who said it? He is probably an architect for the architects, a designer for the designers, an inventor for the inventors, for me he is a way to think and live and an inspiration in any of the creative areas I have lived for. Even if it is a traditional wedding, there is a way to see which is unique to you. . . . #LifestylePhotographer #ArchitectLifestyle #PhotographerLife #ByLorenaPhotography
