in case you missed it, I’m Patty!

Most days you can find me in a messy bun drinking coffee, probably listening to worship music, or sprawled out watching How I Met Your Mother. If I am not there, I am hanging with my little sister, or finding a new way to arrange the furniture in our apartment.

If you ask me what I want to eat, about 90% of the time I will say Chipotle, because their chips are life. But if there’s an authentic Mexican joint near by, I always go tacos + horchata. Which brings me to this next point, ya girl is LATINA and I am super proud of it. I actually wrestled with changing my last name when I got married because I felt like I was losing a piece of my heritage (don’t worry I’m a Rodriguez at heart.) But I LOVE my man, so Norman is AWESOME TOO!

On a more heart to heart level, I strive to live my life knowing I gave it my all. I want to use this talent until I have nothing else to give. I want to bless those around me, and the people who entrust me with their big celebrations and little victories. But most of all my hope is to always leave knowing I enriched your life, whether you’re here looking for a photographer, or just browsing. I hope you leave with an ounce of joy!

All my love,



a few things you may not know about me…

+ I first met my husband on the city bus when we were in high school, after my mom refused to pick me up after school.

+ I am an Enneagram 4- the individualist, which in short means I am deeply connected with my feelings.

+ I got to live in Spain for 4 1/2 months during my college years #studyabroadlife

+ My husband and I had a very intimate wedding. We sort of eloped.

+ My love language is words of affirmation.

+ I one time was given what looked like a faux plant and four months later learned it was real…oops!
