Forever Young - Wild and Free
Forever Young is a place for teens. My Forever Young photoshoots are my way of helping to build confidence at this time of your life. Here I have created a blog/magazine - "Blogazine". Every Blogazine post will feature everyday down to earth people that I have photographed and with the help of lots of talented friends I will share tips, ideas and experiences that will help you along your life journey.
Feel free to browse through the articles and take from them what you please.
I would also love any feedback, and topics you feel important to you - all emails and messages remain confidential.
Thanks and Enjoy!
