I got the chance to take SO many portraits in Guatemala! I've never met kids who love getting their picture taken so much- probably because some of them have never seen a camera. I loved capturing all their expressions and every little detail. They are truly beautiful people.
While staying in La Tinta, a very small, rural Guatemalan village - I found some awesome wild animals. The monkey's name was Poncho, the turtle lived in a cage with a scary alligator and the last photo won me a prize for the Bizarre & Unusual photo contest at Utah State.
