    I saw your work and I’m very impressed! I would love to see more of the work you’ve done when I’m back in town. Hope to hear from you!

  4. I love the pure passion, clarity, and realness of all of your photography. I can see the true enjoyment of your photography in every picture. You have a wonderfully pure, creative, and keen sense of awareness in your work. I believe the things you write about in each section of photography give an even more deeper meaning and understanding about the way you see the world around you, and I like the way you see the world. Many, many, people will see not only your wonderful photography, but the truth, extreme depth and meaning that each picture has to offer. And that will draw the world to see a reflection of their true selves in your photographs connecting them to your work, in a divine way. Bravo! – Nick

    Hello! it has been a long time since you were in youth group at church. What accomplishments you have racked up since then! Congratulations on your studio. I hope with all my heart that you are successful for as long as you choose to do this. Hey, put Moweaqua on the map better than Mark Whitaker did!!!!!
