I am passionate about photographing influential people and people in love. Above all, I value instilling confidence in my clients and creating images that are as full of energy as the event itself.
My favorite things? Breakfast tacos, wine, planes, and trains!
One of my favorite trends are #FBF (Flash Back Friday) photos. Seeing my friends #FBF photos is like gaining insight into their past, which I often feel, helps me understand them a bit better. So in efforts to give you all similar insight, I’ve decided to embark my own #FBF journey….
Late last year while visiting Peru, my grandmother gave my mom various sets of photographs she wanted to keep and store in a nice album. When we got back to the states, my mom went through each set and found photos of her and her siblings in their youth, photos of her late father, and even photos of my grandmother’s wedding!!! My mom has since hung these photographs in her home and they have become a constant reminder for why I do what I do.
While cataloging the photos, my mom found old photos that documented my various trips to the US prior to staying permanently. And let me tell you, each trip was well documented!! I clearly do not remember what 1994 was like, but seeing these photos, is like seeing into a whole new world!
Just last week, my mom gave me a flowery covered album she’d created especially for me. She had originally meant to gift it to me when I was younger, but realized now is the time. Every time I look at my album and the others she created, it feels as though I’ve found hidden treasure and owning those treasure fills me with so many emotions. Some photos bring me to tears, others laughter, and lots of wondering at why my mom cut my hair like a boy and why she dressed me the way she did!! So I’ve decided to share each photograph from this album (and hopefully others) on Instagram and Facebook every Friday! I hope it’ll give everyone some insight into the my life as well as understanding about my serious love for living in the district. I’m excited, nervous and seriously straightening my hair from now on after seeing them! Enjoy!
P.S. Be on the look out for a photo from the album today in the afternoon!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
