The weather was perfect to capture their excitement during this engagement session. The sun was cooperating and the wind was blowing just right. Enjoy this preview.
Here is a quick preview of our session with Disfunkshion magazine.
Enjoyed this portrait session down in the lovely island of Puerto Rico. We were met with the cool sea breeze and delicious local meals. The island is filled with rich culture, vibrant colors, inspiring architect and jaw dropping cliff sides. Here is a small preview of this day.
Being a leader in our culture is often times incorrectly defined. When we hear the word "leadership" we automatically think of someone who holds a powerful position to control. Someone who gives out orders and receives none, someone everyone listens to and aims to please.
There are many "what a leader should be" opinions out there, many are correct, others not so much. One aspect that has always stood out to me has been the characteristic of being a builder. They are the kind of leaders who's students are better than themselves. They not only aim to make themselves or their organization greater, but each person better, even if they surpass them in the future. Our job as leaders, isn't to keep people below us, but to unlock their full potential, unlock their greatness.

You can be free.
We live in a culture overwhelmed with false perceptions of what freedom truly is. Most of us, bound by opinions , follow people's thoughts on how they think we should talk,dress and live while we never really find freedom. A freedom that can only be found in one place. Jesus. The never ending weight of societies view on success can leave us paralyzed & strip us of our joy and motivation. Why settle for low standards if we are made in the image of God and for God? (Gen. 1:27). As seen today, manhood is under a constant onslaught and given distorted view from its purposes. Culture has taught us that being a man is about getting money, living reckless, mistreating women. This shallow & vain outlook leaves us broken and empty. "Trying to fill a void that the soul has" (a lyric from the song) stresses that none of these earthly things can satisfy the human heart, only the one who created it can. The heart of the song wants to resonate the fact we can be free, no longer bound by these things. We can have the chains broken, our eyes opened & our hearts filled. We were made to be free, let's start living like it.
"We need the gospel. We need it more than books. More than studies. More than groups. We need the life giving, identity establishing, purpose defining gospel of Jesus Christ."
-Eric Mason ("Manhood Restored").
There is an inevitable desire for happiness that is embedded in our souls as we are brought into this world. The result of the separation that occurred between us and the source of happiness the moment we became sinners. As we search for that connection to be built again we lose focus. Faced by deceptions, hurt and wounds deep enough to cloud our sight. We no longer travel with a final destination to our Father, instead taking a detour to every place where we think we might find an answer, love, worth, something…
We have been greatly influenced by countries that are overflowing with music, art, colors and a city that has made us love every culture for what they have to offer. Through Darlin Co we want to bring to light how the things you love can and are meant to give God back what He has given us. We also have been burdened by the need there is in every heart to allow Jesus to restore with His love, heal with His blood and speak worth through His word. Our passion is to share the love that has consummated us and live this sublime life knowing that He has called us Darlin.

We enjoyed so much capturing the freedom of little Madison as she ran free and basked in the golden sun. Her smile and sense of adventure became the spotlight in this shoot. Enjoy...
We had the amazing opportunity to capture this beautiful wedding at the beach. We enjoyed the sun, wind and sand as we watched these two tie the knot.
