My Year in Photography - 2018 by Christian Hernandez

I never set goals. Believe me - at the beginning of the year, nor at any other point in the year do I set goals.

Since then, I’m surprised at how many of those I’ve been fortunate to have achieved. By God’s grace and provision, and with the support of my family and friends, I have thankfully been able to check several of those off my list. Here are 4 that I’m really proud of.
