Gabrielle, San Antonio, 2018. @gabrielleperalta @zaneta.us @southwestschoolofart Spent some time a second ago working with @zaneta.us Zaneta and student for their publication. It was a good time. It doesn’t hurt the subjects were cool people so gracious with their time. #makeportraits #people #artschool #studio #painter #photographer #sanantonio #profoto #artist (at Southwest School of Art)

…Going through the archives and thinking and feeling. This is from back when I went to my cousin’s wedding. My uncle had died and my twin cousins walked her down the isle. There were tears, and there was a second line. That’s our lives, though tears and second lines. #wedding #neworleans #family #weallwegot #nikon #blackandwhite #secondline #wethepeople #culture #theculture #tearsanddance #brass #footwork #35mm #music #rapture #thejourney

Zaneta, San Antonio, 2018. As the semester starts to close, I’m better able to get back to the archives. Looking back over my years, here, in San Antonio, it’s been good to work with dear persons in varied capacities. Zaneta is one of those dear people. I’ll post a few of our sitting as well as some of the images we have made for publishing. @zaneta.us all love #fam #weallwegot #artist #makeportraits #ricohimaging #portraitphotography #studio #sanantonio

The homie @josevillalobosart crushed @luminariasa this weekend with his performance piece. This image was from a long and winding sitting with which he graced me and my studio. I will soon be getting back in that place. Thanks. Peace and love. Hopefully I’ll post a few more pieces from recent shoots and viewfound thoughts. #friends #josevillalobos #luminaria #sanantonio #machismo #contemporaryart #weallwegot #ricohimaging #pentax645z #portraitphotography #makeportraits #artist #brownintersections

We went to the pumpkin patch some time ago and it reminds me how much I am away from where I began. In my children, I see a world that surrounds them and Tyra @dr.tyra11 and me that is very much the one I have always known. But, my children enjoy something slightly different from my experiences. They go to pumpkins patches and have lights that stay on. But, we are just trying to expand our children’s imagination past the thunder and storms that beg for their bodies and souls. We won’t have it. They can and will fly and be loved and held and set free. Peace and love. #pumpkinpatch #photography #lullwood #fam #weallwegot #love #nikon #blackimagination #friends #35mm #trees
