2017 was filled with lot of memorable moments. 2017 marked one year since my wife and I moved to Houston. The city provided us with several experiences including attending Super Bowl events, surviving Hurricane Harvey, and watching the Astros win the World Series. There were many professional and personal moments that I enjoyed, but here are a few highlights.
Some of my favorite experiences of 2017:
-Photographing professional models for publication
-Indoor skydiving at iFly
-Attending Super Bowl Live
-Watching a good friend thrive at her book signing
-Visiting Disney World/Universal studios for the first time
-Seeing several of my friends get married/ become parents
-Seeing the joy on my aunt’s face because she retired
-Attending several concerts including Solange, Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, & J. Cole
-Working with new and previous clients
-Attending and photographing the Houston Astros World Series Parade
-Meeting up with great Houston photographers
-Visiting family and friends in Omaha
-Photographing weddings with friends
-Photographing model and actor headshots for a Houston modeling agency
-Photographing the Economic Summit V for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. which included Congresswomen Sheila Jackson Lee & Stacey Plaskett, Mayor Sylvester Turner, Rev. Jesse Jackson Jr., Roland Martin, Dr. Menna Demessie, Melanie Lawson, Robert F. Smith, Linda Lorelle, John Minge’, Bruce Culpepper and many more.
-However, my absolute favorite experience of 2017 was watching my wife obtain her PhD. To witness the moment when her hard work paid off will always be a highlight in my life. Crossing the stage for her third time symbolized the end of her academic career, but the beginning of her professional career. One of my biggest hopes for 2018 is that she is able to grow and prosper both personally and professionally. She is 10000% the highlight of every year.
