CONGRATULATIONS to my great friends Daniel and Rachelle on their engagement! These two are so very perfect for each other, and I think that there engagement says that perfectly. Rachelle is one of those people that just has to see a wrapped present in a room near by and she knows what it is! So she is not someone who gets surprised to often. (It drives me crazy!) And Daniel is someone who tells you how it is and is quite a prankster... So when the big day came Daniel knowing what Rachelle is like, decided to hide her ring in her fridge before they went out; then he proceeds to tell her that her fridge smells and her milk is rotten! When she opened her fridge she was so surprised she didn't believe he was purposing! Finally while on his knee he convinced her that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her! I loved it because Daniel finally surprised the girl that never gets surprised!!! You go Daniel! I am so happy for you two! You are perfect together!

These are just a few of my little sisters senior pictures. She was so nice to let me have the honor of doing her pictures! I am so so proud of her. She has worked so hard to do well in school, and she has a heart of GOLD that still blows me away! I can hardly believe that the little girl with the imaginary penguin friend that I could always rely on to play house or barbies, is about ready to set out on her own to college and forging a life for herself. I know she will do great! I am so proud of you baby sister, keep seeking and trusting the Lord. You are going to do great!

I am still waiting on photo releases on some of my portraits but I really wanted to share with you guys some of my art work : ) enjoy!
I took this picture in 2006 at Huntington Beach. I was trying to just get that tunnel effect under the pier, however I didn't have the guts to ask the man in the photo to move. I think he made the picture, and I am so glad I kept my mouth shut! After playing with it in photoshop it got 3rd place in an art show put on through my high school, and got 1st place in my senior art show.
This picture it the first picture I had ever won an award for. I placed 2nd in the NHRA photo competition my senior year, after my wonderful AV teach Joe Urbz encouraged me to enter some photos along with the video our class entered that year. Thanks for believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself Mr. Urbz!
This picture was taken on a road trip I went on it was a blast and full of beautiful sights. This particular picture was taken off of hwy. 1 on the coast of California. I had some fun with it in photoshop, and liked the results.
Glass creek Mammoth Lakes, CA 2009. Slow shudder. This is the first piece I have ever sold! I was very excited!
This picture was taken half way through a beautiful hike we took on our family vacation.
Blue lake Mammoth, CA 2009.
On our road trip up the coast in 2008 we went to lots of beaches naturally. However this is the first time I had ever seen drift wood on beaches, and I LOVED it! I am not sure why but there was just something so cool about seeing this wood all over the beaches, and how different each piece was made by the water. This is my drift wood picture : )
This last pictures describes my summers at home! My absolute favorite thing to do in the summer is to throw some blankets in the back of the truck and drive up to a local camp ground as high as I can, them lay in the bed and just watch the stars. I never ever get sick of it... So welcome to my summers!
