Growing up in a small town and not a very wealthy family, I learned respect and to not take for granted of the joys in life. Whether it be the people you are with, or the things you see. I started photography because I wanted to experience something new. I never knew it would be something I would wish to make my career as well as my hobby. When you create something that makes your viewer remember a certain memory, you know you have succeeded, and that is what I hope to do with many of my photos.
