Welcome to the M Palma Photo Blog

Hi, my name is Mike, a professional wedding and portrait photographer born, raised, and based here in beautiful, Silverlake, Los Angeles, California.

On this blog, you'll find the daily inspirations, images and musings of my life.

I love photographing people, places, and anything else that catches my eye. I describe my style of photography as modern, fun, and energetic. So stay a while, check out my work, and get to know me better through my images and entries.

If you'd like to visit my main wedding and portrait site, click on this link, or click on the "connect" button up top to drop me a line via e-mail.

Like I said, stay awhile, and enjoy the entries. And please, do leave a comment. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter (via the icons above this paragraph) for even more up-to-date happenings (don't worry, I won't put up meager posts like "I'm standing in line at Starbucks" (my favorite coffee spot!). Only the really cool and important stuff!)

Thanks for stopping by!

December 14, 2011 in Headshots, Performances

Whoa! We’re 11 days away from Christmas! How is everyone doing? Hopefully, your shopping is all done, and your literally just relaxing waiting for the rush to happen, and then ease into the New Year :) 

For me, the week was spent preparing for the annual Grateful Crane Ensemble’s Christmas show in Torrance this past weekend. Couple that with a headshot shoot of one my friends, include a Cold Tofu show, and yet another two holiday parties, and that makes for one busy week! 
So, that being said, here are some images from the week. 
During rehearsals :) 
I wish I was small enough to do this still! Aydin, one of our cast members during rehearsals for the show. Cool hat BTW.
What the holidays are all about – laughter and good friends :) 
Finally, here are a few images of my session with my friend Rumi. Fun times!
One more Christmas show to perform in this week, and then it’s “smooth” sailing until X-mas, well, until two weddings before the year ends.
Have a terrific week everyone! Happy Holidays!
