Many times we take pictures just because we like the way something looks, but these pictures were taken with more than just admiration of the subject, these pictures were taken with a lot of emotions. My cousin and his girlfriend are at a very exciting time in their lives, they’re having their first baby and a part from that she’s also graduating from UTEP this May.

I was beyond excited and proud that they asked to me take Margie’s maternity and graduation pictures!


The Voice of the people

I was going through some of my old pictures and I came across some of an Anti-Trump protest in El Paso, Texas. I couldn’t help, but to think of what a great country we live in.

I know you’re probably thinking, “what are you talking about” considering my pictures are of a protest against our current president. However, I can’t help, but to think about how unbelievably lucky we are to live in a country that lets us voice our opinions— No matter what they are— even if they are opposing our president.

We live in a country where we can do all this safely and now more than ever is when I’m grateful for all this country has to offer.
