Here are some of my favorite 35mm black & white photos from my trip to Japan a few years ago. I am so happy I brought dad's Canon AL-1 with me to capture these moments. I can't wait to take another trip to Japan soon, there is still so much more to see!

A picture of my new Yashica Mat medium format camera! I’ve always worked with a hasselblad, but found it difficult to purchase one in perfect condition for a reasonable price so I decided to go with a Yashica. I love the twin lenses and the fact that it was made in Japan. I purchased it from a local shop in Austin that mainly focuses on camera repairs and camera trades. The owner of the shop was able to help me find this camera, which is still in great working condition. This is my graduation gift to myself and I can’t wait to see the results! Though I absolutely love shooting with my 35mm and a 4x5 field camera, I enjoy medium format because it is more portable than a field camera and produces higher quality images than a 35mm. I will be posting my images as soon as I can!
Here are some graduation portraits I did for my friends Jaime and Miranda. These images turned out to be perfect for their graduation invitations and I enjoyed taking them at the beautiful botanical gardens in Austin!
The Enduring Women exhibition test just recently ended at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Enduring Women was just a small portion of the larger exhibition Women Shaping Texas. I've included some photographs from the gallery opening back in February below. The reception was so memorable and it was an honor to work with my history partner Victor and my enduring woman Evie Patton, who's ancestors colonized San Antonio and fought at the Battle of the Alamo. It was an amazing opportunity to be a part of this project! I have also included a video of my photographs with a short audio clip narrated by Evie below:
