5th Annual Abandoned Downtown Houston Photowalk

This year I joined a group of photographers for a photowalk in downtown Houston on Christmas day. It was quite the experience.

Houston Zoo Photo Day

Last weekend my husband and I attended a Photo Day at the Zoo. The idea was to allow photographers the chance to take photos early before the crowds. The trainers came out and fed the animals while we ran around and took pictures. They told us funny stories about the animals and tried to help…

My favorite thing at…
