#goldenhour in la la land. #theresnoplacelikehome. 

During yesterday’s sunset I set the intention to spend more time with my family. Even if it’s sporadic, I want to make it the highest quality possible. We lost the matriarch of our little tribe yesterday and it reminded us that we are legacy she left behind. #familyfirst #tradition #losangeles #sunset

One more, because #spring in #Harlem comes in second only to #autumn which is my #1 favorite season in the northeast! 

Can you believe I snapped this with my #iPhone?!

#riseandgrind everyone! Life is short. Make today count. 

Being an entrepreneur is not an easy life, but one with many freedoms. So blessed to do what I love as a photographer. I’ve made my passion my paycheck. What about you?
