Thankful I was able to photograph this beautiful family and their maternity session this past weekend. We shot at the Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth. The temperature was warm yet bearable and the park was full of visitors.

I could feel the spirit of the Lord in this family, 2 boys and 1 on the way.

Psalm 127:3-5

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Today’s 20-degree session took place at SMU. My Alma Mater. So much has changed these past 8 years. I enjoyed the conversation that was held with this fellow graduate and his girlfriend. “If I knew then what I know now.” May God continue to bless them and guide them to further their studies and career opportunities. Pony Up!


This past Sunday I was able to photograph lovely Quinceañera portraits. I love shooting elegant portraiture at the Mandalay Canals in Irving. It was an extremely windy day, yet thanks to everyone in the group, we were able to work with the winds and tossed it up (Inside Joke)!

It was an enjoyable session and we were able to get the shots needed! Congratulations to the family and Quinceañera for reaching such a blessed age in life! Much success to your event in Zacatecas, Mexico!




Issue #8

Another Texas day in August. I was able to book and schedule a Texas feature for Bombs Magazine Issue #8 this past weekend August 27th.

With coordination of multiple individuals the best time available was 1 pm daytime.

The sun was eating us alive!

We were able to meet in West Dallas formally known as “Trinity Groves” off Singleton during the North Texas Bombs picnic and shoot behind an old warehouse. The same amazing location used in one of my previous calendars!

Catch Victor Herrera’s 1947 Chevrolet Cabriolet from Pachuco C.C. Tejas in the next Bombs Issue with beautiful pinup model Victoria Castillo. Photography by yours truly.



This past weekend I was fortunate enough to have been able to attend Bombs Magazine’s first L.A. Classic Car Show. With temperatures in the high 90s, it felt right at home. The event took place at the City of Industry Expo Center in City of Industry, CA.

There were over 400 Bombs in attendance 59′ and earlier including lovely Bombshell models participating in Mitzi and Co. Miss Bombs L.A. pinup contest.

It was great reacquainting with staff members and meeting new photographers.

Below is a shot from the show. I absolutely love the color paint on this 57′ Bel air.
