Let's Pay It Forward! #FelizCumpeanos to me!

#Feliz(almost)Friday!

It’s here!!! I know, it's not #FelizFriday just yet...so what's going on???

It's the 21st day of the 21st year of the 21st century AND it's my birthday today!!! And what better way to celebrate than to pay it forward by giving away a print...read below! 🥳🥳🥳


One year ago, today, I rang in my birthday, looking forward to another year adventuring around the sun. Ohhhhhhh but what a difference a year can make, huh? Little did we know, we were just hopping on the ride that none of us wanted to be on — you know, the ‘Rona coaster. 

For all of us, the last year has been...crappy, frustrating, pain in the ass, challenging.
 

But, as much as the past year has had its lows and challenges, it’s also been the catalyst for so much change, growth, and new directions. 

 

And as I was reflecting on the past year as we rang in 2021 a couple of weeks ago, one word kept circling back to me.

 

Surrender.

 

No, not surrender and throw up the white flag to quit.

 

But rather, to surrender what no longer serves me. To surrender my fears, self doubt, and stop getting in my own way.  To surrender to something bigger than just you or me individually — to us as a whole.

 

And I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday today than to turn the focus to those in need + to give back by paying it forward!

One of the most common questions I'm asked is my journey of becoming a photographer.

How did I get started?
Did I study photography in school?
Why photography?
How long have I been photographing?


So how about we take it back, answer your questions, and chat about how my love of photography started?

Do you hoard digital photos, too?

If you’re like me, you have thousands of photos on your phone. And if you’re really like me, you have multiple 5TB external hard drives full of digital image files... 🤣

But you know what?
