||Empowering Portrait Sessions||

I applaud anyone who decides to get in front of a camera and have a lens pointed at them. It can be terrifying in so many circumstances. I myself find it awkward when I get in front of a camera, especially in front of someone else’s camera. While living through the era of selfies, it’s easy to take a good picture, but it still lacks the fundamental reason to do a photoshoot. There are times where being in a photoshoot brings so much more then the photo itself. It brings out the not just the smile, but the vulnerability. Sometimes the silly and the sassy too. Each of these portrait sessions I did with all these ladies gave me a sense of why I do what I do. Most of us want to feel good, look good and be good, and I have definitely captured all of this. A lot of the time they end up loving the moment I ended up getting in between.

Couch Surfing The West Coast

While iv'e been traveling on the road for the past year a half, I have lived in delight when spending time with the people who open up their home and share collective company with me.

Eugene, Oregon

I met a family whom I adore, and they are soooo Eugene. A family of hippies, who gather around with friends and each other for game night. Joints, wine, and loads of instruments for a jam session in front of the wooden fireplace. I only wish to one day live in the back yard in the mother in law house, which used to be an art studio.

Yuba City, CA

A few months ago I ended up meeting up with one of my uncles in Sacramento, along with meeting his wonderful and gorgeous spirited lady, Dolores. She invited me to come stay at her house in Yuba City whenever I was nearby, and this time I had to pay her a visit!

I am always so grateful for the people who open up there homes to me. The company and creativity is what I crave, and anyone that invites me in gives me that pleasure.

Babies Give Me Goosebumps

Seeing a childhood friend’s baby for the first time gives me goose bumps, and I don’t mean in the ushy gushy type of way when most see a baby. It’s hard to explain, but I will do my best.

At 25 years old I am starting to see some of my truest friends starting their own journey as new parents. It’s interesting watching them shift their lives into a more mature, a more loving, and conscious creature of the universe. I mean for god sakes, they are raising a human being!

I mean…we were once the kiddos who were running around as little tyrants. At birthday parties, school dances, and the neighborhood playgrounds. We had made those childhood memories last. Some stories stuck more than others, but what I do mostly remember was laughing about everything with my friends and the young ones around us.

Life is too short. I know that is the most over used cliche of all cliches, but its still damn near the truest one. When I am watching my childhood friends raise the people they love most in this life, it shows the truest person they are in those moments. These children will turn into an individual of their own, who will soon be playing with their childhood best friends at their birthday parties, their school dances and their neighborhood playgrounds…. Life just seems SO SHORT. How did I get here already?

“Our parents deserve our honor and respect for giving us life itself. Beyond this they almost always made countless sacrifices as they cared for and nurtured us through our infancy and childhood, provided us with the necessities of life, and nursed us through physical illnesses and emotional stresses of growing up” – Ezra Taft Benso
