Photo Essay

Never a Dull Moment

always be

Shawn Beth-Marie Burgess has been that one girl in my life that constantly inspires me almost everyday. We'd do anything for each other. She has been one of my first models, my mentor, my muse, my best friend and without a doubt, my favorite person to photograph since i first started photography (she will never believe me if i ever told her that. haha.) It's very rarely we ever get to shoot together due to the fact that she now lives 500 miles north of me in Berkeley, California where she is studying at University of California, Berkeley to become an entertainment lawyer at the age of 21, but when we do get together to shoot i know for a fact that the photos are going to come out better than i expected. Shawn and I are constantly filled with artsy, humorous, risky, beautiful ideas. Before we started shooting together, she had never posed for a photographer in her life, and still, she has always been willing to do whatever it takes to get that one perfect shot. Definitely a natural. And my god, those eyes! Anyone, i mean anyone could get lost in them.

Our friendship, our love, our good times will never be removed from my memory.
