    I’ve published my first NFT! And fittingly, I used the image I created in 2011 that was featured in the Best of College Photography 2011. The NFT can be found here: https://aaron.help/lightenupanewperspectivenft

  • My Favorite Place in the World is La Cantera and the Rim

    My Favorite Place in the World is La Cantera and the Rim

    In January 2007, I was introduced to the Rim and La Cantera. I had never seen any place ritzier than here. Keep in mind I was a teenager, and it was very new. There is Stone Oak, Terrell Hills, Shavano Park, and Alamo Heights, but nothing beats La Cantera. That’s my humble opinion. Growing up, […]

  • The Return of Western Attire

    The Return of Western Attire

    It’s been several years since I’ve worn western attire. I’ve had my Lucchese boots since I was 15; I’m now 30. I wore them on many occasions with my everyday outfits, formal events, and Sundays for church. But as time passed, I opted for a comfortable pair of slip Sketchers. Last night I walked into […]

  • My Life in Photos

    My Life in Photos

    Photos are great because they freeze time and allow the moment to live for eternity. I’m incredibly fortunate to have over 100,000 pictures of my life that will enable me to fully appreciate my 30 years of existence. I remember when I first discovered wallets. Leather trifold wallets with a pocket for your ID card […]

  • I’ve Never Played Monopoly or Mastered Cooking

    I’ve Never Played Monopoly or Mastered Cooking

    Growing up as an only child, there were many board games that I had never played. Monopoly is one of them. My first exposure to the game was at a summer youth camp. It was for a church I attended as a youngster. I saw the paper money and was immediately attracted to it. However, […]

  • Moon’s Daughter San Antonio

    Moon’s Daughter San Antonio

    Twenty floors above downtown San Antonio rests a plate of freshly tossed salad and a cool glass of ice-cold water. The view is serene. From this view, the world seems small. And all its cares, even smaller. The view of the city spanning out into the horizon reminds one of their places. I opted for […]

  • Random Photos from my Camera Roll

    Random Photos from my Camera Roll

    The gray house in the middle is my favorite, if you’re wondering. I like how neat and proper this row of houses looks. They’re very aesthetically appealing. I forgot which community they are in. Kara and I viewed many before deciding on a house we would eventually call home. This burger was delicious. It had […]

    7 Years of Dating and 8 Months of Marriage

    Kara and I have officially been together for seven years. And we have now been married for eight months! The milestones are moving fast. Kara planned my 30th birthday a few months after we got married. I’m glad she did. I hadn’t celebrated my birthday with a party in years! She got me a burger […]

  • So We’re Building a House

    So We’re Building a House

    It’s something we’ve always wanted. A home to call our own. Being me, I’m particular. I wanted a new construction home. A lot of paperwork is still pending, but hopefully, we will move into this house next year. I was fortunate enough to photograph the progression of our future home early. I think these photos […]
