...but first, lemme take a selfie. / by Mario Elias

Welcome to my crib, yall! My own glamour dumpster of photos, art, glitter, filth, and yes, a few self-portraits (fine... selfies, gurl.)

Sophie and me at home. September 23, 2015.

While a majority of my contributions to social media tend to center around crap-talk and hoodrat things, I actually do have a little more to say than just that.  (Don't worry. The "Would You Rather"s and sloppy girl memes aren't going anywhere.)

I have never been one to post about serious topics, professional things, emotional struggles, etc. I never wanted to put anything out there that I thought would be deemed unimportant by some absentminded scroller.  I have been known to avoid experiences in order to avoid failure. I have been known to not open up about things I am really proud of for fear of rejection.  This blog is meant to break me out of that shell.  It is meant to force me to stay on track in my photo work, and to open up more with the people I want to share my work with.  I will be updating this bad boy with photo-galleries, new artwork, and random photo related news!

I also now have prints for sale!!! Check out my online store at www.marioeliasphotography.com/store 
Each print is limited to a run of 25! They are professionally printed and mounted. Currently offered in three sizes (8x10, 16x20, 24x30), these lovely ladies will make a huge impact in any room.  I am really excited to share this with all of you. Let me know any feed back, or images you'd like to see in the store! 

Get ready, friends! We are gonna go on a lil ride, and it's promising to be very photogenic. 

Mario
