I’ve been thinking about ways to break it to my closest friends about our BIG NEWS. We needed to get them together without them suspecting anything. I figured, some of them have always wanted family photos taken by me but have not been able to all these years I’ve been doing this professionally. So, Erick […]

There’s Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter etc etc. How many of you remember Myspace? Well, it’s not the “in” thing anymore but we’re sure a lot of people […]
