Simplicity is my biggest inspiration. I've been involved in photography for almost two decades. Nothing is more wonderful than the experience of capturing love and witnessing happy moments that carry into my own everyday life.

I started drawing comic book characters and paid strong attention to animation. As I got older, my passion for art grew along with me. Slowly photography became a part of my life. Shortly after I was hired to work at a local pro photographic lab. There I experienced film developing, printing and using the darkroom. Its truly a blessing for me to be able to do what I love in life. I've been fortunate to capture the most loveliest couples from celebrity to a simple union that inspired me to continue with my passion for photography. After all the years, the excitement of packing my camera bag to head out for a shoot has never faded away. I truly believe when you do something from your genuine heart, you'll always be successful.

An authentic photograph shouldn't be about the photographer, but the moment and the feeling it leaves behind. My ultimate goal is to never put any limitations to what I am able to create. I keep a constant reminder that quality never fads and trends disappears.

All my glory in life is because of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I would not be who I am, if it wasn't for him.

Shortly after I finished my bachelors degree in Finance, I began working at a CPA Firm. Bookkeeping/Accounting was fun and challenging but it wasn't what I wanted to do. After a few years of bookkeeping and tax returns, I knew I wanted to do something more creative. I began following Kris' blog about six years ago. I was amazed with the photographs he was capturing - each one of them had a story to tell. It was at this stage in my life that I knew I wanted to become a photographer. Working exclusively with Kris to capture these moments, I wanted to share a similar vision by developing my own eye.

I always have fun capturing some of life's happy moments. I love to photograph people just the way they are - natural and together. My favorite photographs are the ones that just happen. Now that Hilda and I have our lovely baby Elaina, life has given me the gift of understanding people in a new way.
