Long time friends and several years a couple, Maria and Edwin were excited about their session, and picked out some amazing locations for us to use! I finally had an opportunity to shoot at the Dallas Arboretum and I found out what a gem the Winspear Opera House was. I still laugh at what a bad firs...

I return home from another client meeting. I haven't had a day off between my day job and shoots on the weekends for twenty days straight. But that's OK. I booked that client.

As someone who is still semi new to professional photography, the last few years have been a long stream of "Alright, I need to add this to my work flow".

I work 9am-5:30pm five days a week.  I clock in, put my personal business aside, and work hard to pay my bills. I try to ignore the constant thoughts of marketing and new equipment to put the proper effort into my daily occupation. This also means that every bit of my energy I put into photography c...
