Photography Services

COVID-19 has forced us to close our retail space, but we need support from patrons like yourself now more than ever. Below, we’ve listed the best ways to help us through this season.

Our full product line is still available online here on our site! Getting outside and hiking is still something you can do. Get your gear now!

Since we've changed the way we operate to online only, and to ensure your safety, not all our staff is working. Donate to keep them afloat.

Since I was a kid, I have loved photography and traveling internationally - this passion for people, photos & passport stamps has led me to documenting some of the most incredible moments - from war-torn Africa to family portraits in Texas. These are legacy moments, moments that will last forever, because of photos.

I capture connection and do that with the two ventures to the left, Houston Photo Co. and event photo booths with FotoPop.

Check them out and scroll down to learn more about my international photography venture, Come Alive.

Citizens Truck Logo

This beautiful vintage 1948 Chevy Farm truck turned drink & dessert truck is one of a kind! Whether you want a cup of a freshly roasted coffee, a refreshingly fruity acai bowl, a icy popsicle from Steel City Pops, or a glass of amazing tea - we've got your back! The truck is also open for rent or catering your next event. We serve drinks, desserts, treats and more!

Join us in making a difference locally and internationally! CitizensTruck gives 100% of all proceeds to selected nonprofits. Our primary benefactor is Rooted Conferences - an organized focused on helping incoming college students, but we also support some amazing organizations like Houston's Memorial Park Conservancy, The Vine Uganda, and others.

Rooted Conferences Logo

Rooted is a weekend experience that helps prevent college students from leaving the church. We are committed to connecting students to students and students to churches through an experience on college campuses.

By inviting the active local churches to the conference we are able to help provide resources, connections, and community for incoming students.

That said: we know that we love making sure you have the gear you need for your adventures, and we’re going to keep doing that - with our team - until the city tells us we can’t.

But as long as folks like yourself support small businesses around the city, then we’ll be here — every day, making sure your orders arrive on time.

Come Alive logo

See, hear and feel what God is doing in other nations through this unique art experience. Come Alive is fully immersive, ministry focused and forever impactful. The photos captured within the exhibit transport you to nations across the globe and allow you to share in God's work in communities that are far from your own.

Riding With Bentley Logo

Meet Bentley, my 3 year old buddy - miniature Australian Shepherd. Texas born and raised, Bentley is one of Houston’s favorite pups. She is known for her personality, expressive eyebrows, jumps, and for being featured with various brands, including ESPN, David Weekly, and serving as the CitizensTruck brand ambassador.

You’ll often find her eating peanut butter, hanging out with her collection of stuffed animal friends, or playing with friends. Follow along with the adventures of your new favorite four legged friend!

Bayou Bones Dog Treats Logo

Houston's newest and best Dog treat is now out! I partnered with Citizens Truck + SMYL Dentistry + Dr. Mitchell Mactier to form Bayou Bones - Treats that Dogs love, for a great cause! These treats are made by hand, by some of our favorite Houstonians.

We teamed up with an amazing community based organization called Jessie’s Bites that employs people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They create, bake and package all the treats! A quote from them “we believe in focusing on peoples strengths and talents, not disabilities.”. We are honored to be able to create a dog treat that is natural and tasty while at the same time partnering with a company that creates jobs for people that otherwise would not be able to work, providing a safe and fun space to work in an encouraging environment.

To purchase, visit Citizens Truck or Bayou Bones
