3/26/14 - The changes are coming along nicely and it has turned out to be a huge blessing that I needed to make changes to the way I ran the site. You know that saying "Everything happens for a reason" or what I like to say "God has the power to make anything bad into something great"? Well God has indeed helped bless what was an issue into a great blessing. I am very grateful and thankful for running into my original issue of having a limit on how many things I could put on the front page.
The first big change you will/have notice, is that all of the items on the main page have been moved. To view anything that was previously on the main page, simply click on the link above that says "News".
A new change/added item that when live today, is a page dedicated to the photos I post on Instagram (you can find that new section by scrolling down to the bottom of this page).
There are more changes coming in the near future and a lot more items to be added to the site. The plan is to not take anything away, but only to add.
Thank you for your patience and I hope you are loving the changes and the new items that have been added.
Los Angeles (AFP) - Mickey Rooney, the child actor who danced with Judy Garland, married Ava Gardner and made more than 250 movies, died Sunday at his home in North Hollywood. He was 93.
"It is with sadness that I say my father has passed today," his son, choreographer Michael Rooney, said on Twitter. "I loved him and so did the world. He inspired so many. RIP dad."
Rooney rose to fame alongside Garland as the plucky diminutive lad -- he was 1.6 meters tall -- in the "Andy Hardy" movies of the late 1930s and early 1940s.

Background Info on my Disney photography - I have loved taking pictures since I was a child, but I fell in love with photography back in 2007 when I first started taking pictures of a parade called "Block Party Bash". Since then, I have taken pictures of the Disneyland Resort Entertainment on a regular basis over the years. All of the photography was done as a hobby and not as a paid job. Even though my photography has expanded outside of Disney, I still find myself at the Resort taking pictures of the different parades and shows just for fun.
New post added 3/27/14: The one goal that I always try to maintain with my photos, is to simply get people to smile. If a photo that I have taken gets you to smile, then the photo has done what it was meant to do. I really love seeing people smile and one of the things I have always wanted to do, was to use my photography as a way of inspiring and giving hope to people. I don't want people to feel alone and not loved. To help me with this mission, this goal, this quest, I have decided to combine my blog world with my photo world. The world is tough and I want people to know they are not alone and that they are loved. Come take a look, see if there is something in here that can make you smile.
"Right now you might find yourself feeling like you are alone and that no one has gone through what you are going through. Guess what though, you are not alone! Everyone deals with pain and a lot of that pain is the same pain you are feeling. Keep fighting and know that you can turn your sorrow into medicine for tomorrow." -Stephen
New Disney Blog post Added 3/20/14: Traci Hines & Brendan Bradley's Official Video cover of Love Is an Open Door from Disney's Frozen!
From Traci Hines: "The Story: This is our cover of Love Is an Open Door from Disney's Frozen! I remember seeing the film for the first time shortly after it was released, and once this scene began, I knew this was going to be my favorite song from the film! This little duet between Anna & Hans just stole my heart! It's so quirky and adorable! ...or should I say, Adorkable? Funnily enough I was already looking for a song to duet on with Brendan, (we met on a Fearnet shoot last Oct. playing a zombie's roommates & established then that a duet on youtube must happen) so we got in touch & decided this was our new favorite song!"

"You're Not Alone" photography has it's own youtube channel! The channel mainly consists of videos I have taken at the Resort and a few of my church related videos. Come take a look! If I get more people to subscribe to my channel, I will start to upload more videos on a regular basis.
The video on the left is a playlist of videos that I picked specifically for this site. None of the videos are mine.
Come take a look at all of the Instagram photos taken at the Disneyland Resort. All photos were either taken from one of my cameras or phone. Click here to see the photos...
