Time To Reflect

Time To Reflect

Photo by: Abraham Quintana

This past December I reached the milestone of 40 years old and like many people it was time to reflect on where I've been and where I’m going. Its clear to me that 40 is not what it used to be and the fact that I don’t feel or look it has aided me in keeping an optimistic outlook. The stigma attached to this age is still one that drives many people to look at them selves through an honest perspective and decide if they are happy with the path they are on or if its time to make drastic changes. For me it’s the same and reaching this age at the same time as my transition from dancer to what ever adventure is coming next, has been scary and liberating at the same time. Ive always had things to anchor me somewhat in areas of discipline but I'm a free bird at heart and I'm looking forward to continuing to work on this to achieve a more perfect balance between a structured foundation and a free roaming spirit. One thing I have learned in life so far is that dreams and ambitions are no longer things that are to be done way off in the future. I’ve spent many hours over the years thinking and planning and my ideas were alway something that would be done later on down the road. At this point I’ve accomplished a few things in my life that I am extremely proud of, and I believe that now is the time to strengthen my foundations and realise my objectives. I hope to always be my self, but I am working on being a better me and I know that that will only happen with the support of the people around me who have contributed so much in making me the person I am today. To all my friends and family, thank you so much! I look forward to the many great adventures that await us!

Paris With Family

Paris With Family

There is nothing in this world I love more than to travel to fascinating places with friends and family. What could be better than to share the experience of travel with people who you care about and who can make that trip so much more memorable? Im off to Paris to meet up with my sister Breanna and my aunt Lisa! This trip will be special even for a European adventure with family as Paris is particularly  memorable  for me. Not only is it a spectacularly wonderful city that will exceed your expectations but for me it was my first trip outside The United States. I was 18 and off to the Paris International Ballet Competition. I had always dreamt of one day visiting Paris and when I got there it was like a dream. I fell in love and I have loved every tip to that city ever since. Sadly I really don't have much photography from any of those trips. The one time I went to get photos the weather wasn't on my side and it was a fast weekend. I still had a great time but as a travel photographer who loves Paris as much as I do, to not have any decent images has been kind of a shame. Well Its time to fix that as Ill have three full days to enjoy and hopefully a bit more experience. after that we'll head up to Normandy to explore some D-Day sights and see the Bayeux Tapestry. It will be a great trip no matter what and my sister is bringing her camera and tripod along as well. I cant wait to see what I get and Ill post the images as soon as possible.
