Traveling Chilaca Journal

Welcome to my little tiny corner of the cyber world, based out of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico! Below you will see favorites from my professional sessions and assignments, as well as loads of personal nonsense that I hope at least will entertain you. If nothing else, you can keep up on a funny travel photojournal!

My name is Holly and I love to document the world around me through the visual media.   Welcome to my world.

…mexico love with maribel and alberto…


There is a beautiful Armenian proverb that says “if its drizzling when you go into the church to get married, and when you come out the sun is shining, you are destined to a long life together”. And that is just how it was with Alberto and Maribel. Family and friends, grandparents and children, all celebrated with this beautiful couple from close and far. What a beautiful week-end.

“Para mi corazón basta tu pecho,
para tu libertad bastan mis alas.
Desde mi boca llegará hasta el cielo
lo que estaba dormido sobre tu alma.

Es en ti la ilusión de cada día.
Llegas como el rocío a las corolas.
Socavas el horizonte con tu ausencia.
Eternamente en fuga como la ola.”

Pablo Neruda

…a little magical love in Mexico with Carrie & Dom…

 Three week-ends ago I got to meet Carrie and Dom. What an absolutely treat and pleasure.

They chose San Miguel all the way from their home in Dubai for their intimate wedding celebration, and this town charmed them with their magic.

What a beautiful family and friends.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda






Hello to some summer love in Mexico!

I just finished editing Marichelle and Carlo’s wedding photos…and I have to admit I caught myself smiling and thinking, these two are meant for each other. Half the family came from Guam to enjoy in the colors and music of Carlo’s families side, Mexico…and what a celebration this was.
Here’s a little slide show with some fun photos. Enjoy!

Near our home for the last few months with beautiful Violet and Nancy.

The falling wave,

arch of identity, shattering feathers,

is only spume when it clears,

and returns to its source, unconsumed.

It pounds on the shore
Restless as a young heart,
Hunting.” Sanburg

This is from last night… the moon caressing the waves of the sea.
