Season 1, Episode 1: Blessings.

Hey guys, I wanted you all to get to know me a bit more! and I wanted to share with you some fun stories and some deep feelings as I go about my journey as a photographer. As I enter this phase of my life, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming amount of blessings.

As some of you know, I am now a full time photographer. That has not always been the case. After high school, I graduated from the fire academy, joined a church internship to devote a year to ministry. I got hired at In-N-Out Burger (which is where I met my wife), and from there have jumped around between various construction jobs to keep food on the table. I have always loved photography, but my wife and I had never been in a spot financially to let me pursue it as a career.

It Was Tough But God Is Faithful

We then welcomed our daughter, Amelia, into the world, and then our son Roman, and from there the pressure had been extra heavy to make sure I was able to give my children a life they deserved. But, God is always in control. Due to lack of work, I chose to walk away from the construction company I had been working for. Through a lot of prayer, some tears (mostly my wife’s), and a whole lot of faith that God was going to provide, I knew that this was the time to launch my dream career. And tell you what… GOD IS SO GOOD! I give all of this to his glory!

So, even though this season of life has been a tad bit stressful. And sometimes, a bit uncertain. God has truly blessed me. I am very proud to say that I am now a full time photographer! Thanks to the support of my beautiful wife, Lindsey, my amazing kids, our big extended family, but most of all God.

See you all soon!
