A Bit About Me //
From the Beginning //
When I was adopted I came with a jean jumper and a toy horse. That should have been a sign. As long as I can remember I have been thinking and dreaming of horses. When I wasn’t riding or drawing them, I would pretend my hand was a horse. You read that right…I would take my hand horse everywhere with me and it would jump over obstacles at the grocery store, on the playground, and at home to the horror of my family.
How it all Started //
I currently live in Fayetteville Arkansas but I grew up in Tegucigalpa Honduras. Sí, yo hablo Español. I moved to the U.S. in 2010 to experience culture shock and try to be a normal American. I failed and decided not to be normal lol. So I got a job working as a dog trainer/caregiver. Ok ok yes I trained dogs but I mostly walked them.
While at the University of Arkansas completing an internship in the equine program, I discovered I could take a decent picture of a horse. With the encouragement of my dear friend Dr. Jack, I pursued photography in my spare time. I found a way to stay involved in the equine program and became a TA for my then professor and now dear friend, Dr. Jogan. It was with Dr. Jogan I was able to photograph some of the industry’s elite and travel to Kentucky to photograph thoroughbreds. What an amazing experience!
While focusing on equine photography, I did a few sessions with high school seniors and families in my spare time. AND the rest is pretty much history. I was hooked. Getting to meet so many cool people and hear their stories was the best “job” I thought I could have. So I became a professional photographer.
A love story //
One year before I left Honduras to live in the U.S. I met a boy named Brent. I had no idea he would follow me here. Brent pursued me for two years before I finally gave in and we got married...in a barn. It’s now been eight years!
We run multiple businesses together (somehow staying sane). His strengths fill in where i am lacking (aka anything where “the maths” are involved), and my strengths fill in where he is lacking (aka a pretty face with humor and sass).
Brent is now a real-estate agent serving the U.S. and Canada. Oh and he’s also my cheerleader, photography assistant, pack mule, chauffeur, errand boy, foot masseuse, and my best friend.
Freedom is always the driving force for me and Brent. Financial freedom, freedom to travel, and freedom to live a little different. Currently we are preparing to move from our 400sq.ft. tiny house to an RV. Yup! We want to live in a van….(and i hope you finished that sentence with a Matt Foley voice). Our businesses travel well and we don’t like the idea of being stuck in a house. We are minimalists at heart (although i do have a few too many plants). Someday we will buy property to call home but we are not in any hurry. We have time to play before we retire to a normal life that is more than just us and settle into adulthood.
