A couple years or so ago when Magic Bands first arrived it was all people talked about. This image is cool to me because it is something I had never seen captured before. There are a lot of people taking photos at Disney and sometimes its nice to see something a little different!

I shot July 4th fireworks for the first time in 2014 and what an awesome show it was! This was the finale shot from that day. Fireworks are one of my favorite things to photograph because it is challenging to get that perfect shot which I am still striving for.

I had never been to Typhoon Lagoon until we added water parks to our passes this past year. My first hour at this park was spent photographing the whole place. This shot is a personal favorite because of the scars I have from it .literally! The wave knocked me off my feet and since I was holding my NIkon D750 and didn t want it to get drenched I had to brace myself by holding the top of my foot against the concrete floor while keeping the camera above water.

I am sure it was a sight to see ..but anything for the shot right? Took the skin off the top of my foot and I still have a scar to prove it! I promise I won t try that again!

This image is pretty special to me because it was the image that led me to WDW Magazine. As Passholders we were able to attend the soft opening for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and I took many pictures for my Facebook page. Carl asked about using it in the magazine and the rest is history!

This image is one of my all time favorite pictures EVER! My daughter Lily was 2 years old at the time and one afternoon while walking from Tomorrowland to Main Street we ran into Snow White and her prince. It was such a special interaction that went on for several minutes. Truly a Magical Disney moment! Just glad I had my camera ready!
