To Be Queer: Maia


The Palacios family came into my life for a Give Back Session in the early Fall of 2018 and I am so incredibly grateful to have met them and captured a small part of their journey.

Rafael: The Real-Life Superman


A little over a year ago I was sitting in my apartment crying with absolute joy as Sarah and Ryan sent me photo after photo of their perfect little rainbow baby Jackson.

August: Happy National Family Month!


Today is a special day. Not for any reason big and popular or having to do with Carrie Fisher (though I have to admit, I think she’d approve of my day). No, dear friends… today is my dog’s birthday. And I am excited beyond comprehension to combine my love for my little moo-pig and my […]
