San Diego Weddings and Unique Portraits

Welcome to my archived blog space for Papaya Sky Photography. I ran Papaya Sky Photography part time in addition to my day job from the end of 2009 to 2012. After my son turned a few months old I decided to retire the business in order to focus more of my time on my two young kids and my day job.

Joshua Tree Art Walk

Steve and I had the great opportunity to join a couple of our friends in Joshua Tree for the October Art Walk this year. Not only did we see some amazing art, but we were treated to the mouth-watering culinary talents of Chef Rosa who started out our Saturday morning by offering us delicious home-baked muffins right out of the oven. What a way to start out such an inspiring weekend!
Chef Rosa Ficara making a delicious soup, seasoned with her own special seasoning "Rosa's Touch." I brought a jar home with me and it immediately became a staple ingredient in my kitchen. Better order more before I run out!

Joshua Tree has many vintage clothing enthusiasts who revel in a distinct sense of personal style.

I love Melissa and Rosa because they are two people who you can laugh whole-heatedly with and who are always ready to sit down and eat good food with friends.
