Aside from a couple years in Colorado , I am a lifelong New Mexican. I grew up in Las Cruces and made my way to Albuquerque soon after high school. My favorite parts of living in the high desert is the way the light falls over the landscape and the long, uninterrupted views when you find the right vantage point. I love monsoon storms and big puffy clouds in the summer.
I have a little old-lady cat named Kendall with a calico coat that spends a lot of time snoring in her little bed. She's been my tiny bff for the last 16 years.
For the better part of the last 7 years, I have been dating my best friend. He always finds a way to make me laugh. It was because of his encouragement that I upgraded my film camera bought when I graduated high school to a DSLR. I practiced with anyone who would sit in front of my lens and was always looking for beautiful ways to capture people and moments.
