My First Photo Shoot – Marlee and Jon

I was so excited when my friend, Marlee, asked me if I'd take holiday pictures of her and her boyfriend.

Keep The Deep (Ellum) Vibe Alive

When I was in high school I remember going to Deep Ellum to see shows. I always had to have a parent, friend's parent, or my older brother go with me.
