A couple weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of capturing some images of my friend @senzz_!
Sena is an individual who exudes excellence, and I don't just mean in the usual sense of the word. As black people, our worth is often attached to how much we can succeed in life despite our disadvantages. What makes Sena excellent is the way he makes others feel. He's charismatic, kind, and multi-faceted. He's a theatre nerd, an incredible dancer, and he loves to hang. He's also a huge anime fan 😉.
It's not a new thing for black photographers to capture black people, and that's why I want to go further. I want to capture black people who might have felt "othered" at some point in their lives. Maybe they didn't quite fit into spaces society said they "should" have. Maybe they have tastes that are popular now that weren't popular when they were growing up (see previous paragraph for anime 😂).
I look forward to capturing more folks like this and potentially start a series ✨

At the end of the day your hair should be salty, your eyes should be sparkly, your feet should be dirty and your heart should be full 🧡✨
My family and I are traveling Australia in our caravan and this shot was taken at the Chinamans hat lookout in the Innes National park in South Australia!

It being a Sunday, I decided to go for a photo walk at one of our local beaches. The beach was full of people and I noticed that they were two dogs that were running around with full of energy and were just being playful. I realized that they could turn out to be interesting subjects. I wanted to make a frame where only the two dogs were in it with no individuals. So I waited until the perfect moment. I didn't realize that I have made the frame that I was after, until I got the scans back. I am just happy with the fact, that I was able to freeze this moment. It outlines their character and how friendly they are. This photograph was made on Kodak portra 400 and the camera used was Pentax K1000.

Instagrammable spot in Sydney
My first memorable time at Watson’s Bay was about 10 years ago. I remember going swimming and snorkeling with my partner. I even got into some fishing with him, though I only ended up demotivating both of us with the many times my line got caught on rocks, lost hooks and fish food! 😂😅 I don’t think I’ll ever be great at fishing...
Few weeks ago, we came back to this spot at Watson’s Bay to reminiscence our first days of dating. It’s still a great instagrammable spot with stunning views of the city skyline just like 10 years ago! 🥰

Being a boy mom
What a privilege it is to be the mother of boys. Boys who will grow up respecting, loving and honoring women. Treating them as equals. Listening, truly listening, to what they have to say. Taking the word “no” for exactly that— a no. Valuing the women that they encounter as they go through life.
I promise I’m raising boys who you can trust your girls to be around and be respected by.

From above it looks better (Desde arriba se ve mejor)
On the beaches of Zihuatanejo in Guerrero state there is an activity that consists of being lifted by a boat-driven parachute and allows you to see the beautiful views of Zihuatanejo. But before they go up, the workers have to lift the parachute in the air so that it is ready to make the trip. Once I took the picture of the moment one of them approached me and said "from above it looks better!" But I reject the invitation for fear of losing my camera several feet high.
The camera is an Olympus Infinity Zoom 105 and the film is Kodak Color Plus 200

Late February in San Diego, California we were blessed with a week of just the most absolute primetime weather. Mid 70s, crystal clear skies with a light breeze. Every sunset shoot was a dream that week. Tourmaline beach will always a have soft spot for my sunset shoots. This photo captures it all. Thank you Kodak Moments for the feature!

A minute to reflect after a long day’s hike in the Coast Mountains of Canada. There’s nowhere else with lakes quite so turquoise from the glacial silt! Panorama Ridge, B.C.
