"SmilE, Dammit."

I say that phrase. A lot.
I say it even when I'm not photographing people.

See, I believe there is tremendous beauty and good in this world; it's all around us. Those of us lucky enough to live in New Mexico see that beauty every day.

In fact, the only thing more beautiful than the Land of Enchantment are the people who are lucky enough to call her "home."

Family, friends, laughter, the colors of a sunset, a warm cup of coffee in your hand, a child's laugh...

these are the good things in life, and the good things, well, they are worthy of our focus, worthy of a smile.

In a world where you can choose to be anything,

I choose to be happy.

And I create portraits that choose the same thing.
