A lot has happened over the last year and a half. I got married, I started my own studio, my wife and I found out we will be having a baby and unexpectedly my father passed away. One year ago today my father; a teacher, creator, photographer, thinker, reverend and lover left behind a collection of good memories and stories for many. The funny, sad, and wise stories are bound in my thoughts daily. This cover is in honor of those stories and the life that created them.
"Life is good."
YAY! Christmas is almost here!
