Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I hope we meet soon so we can talk in person about your needs and how I can meet them. I thought it would be good for me to write a few words about my life so you can start getting to know me and my passion for photography.

My life began like many people that come to this great country. I was born in Mexico and I have been blessed to live a life full of diversity, laughter, friends and family. When I think of how my life has turned out, there is one constant, one thing that has always remained the same, my love for life. 

This love can be interpreted in many ways, for example, my love for people, for God, for celebrations, for family. Inevitably, even from a young age, this love has manifested itself through the love of art and photography. Art has always been a part of my life, growing up I was that kid in school who always had a sketchbook. Giving drawings to my friends gave me an intense happiness, the smile on their faces was more than enough to make my day. That was my reward.

Some time later, I picked up a camera and joined the yearbook club. Been hooked ever since!  Photography has been my hobby for many years, until now; I have the opportunity to share my imagination with you.

You see, to me, the world is a combination of who you meet and how you build yourself to be, that makes your world what it is. There are way too many smiles, hugs, kisses, whiskers, baby cheeks, foot prints, landscapes and of course puppy eyes that one cannot capture without the grace of God.

The camera is just a tool that I use, but it’s the drive of wanting to capture life as it’s unraveling itself beyond control that gets me motivated.

I call them, moments of truth.

We only live once and as well as believing that our memories can be passed on to our loved ones with pictures, I wholeheartedly believe that these pictures leave a story. Inspired moments held still forever in silence presenting a story of love, joy, friendship and harmony.

As for my life now, it’s centered on my wife, our two boys, and furry friend. My wife and I met in college, since then we have enjoyed traveling, food, we have cried, we have prayed and we have laughed many times. Nine years ago, we adopted a Labrador (non) Retriever, his name is Rocko. He has given us many laughs and sloppy kisses throughout the years. I am beyond grateful for my children, their smile, cries, touch, gibberish, Rico Suave hair and all the little things that have strengthened our family with love and spirit.

I truly hope we meet soon and I can share with you this passion I have for life and photography. Please feel free to contact me by any of the methods on this website. I would love to answer any question you may have. God bless.
