Well, it happens to the best of us. I got super busy towards the end of 2017. Here we are, almost April and I have yet to post anything. At the end of 2017 I had the honor to document several important events: Weddings, families, communities, and political movements. I’ve been behind my camera A LOT and in front of my computer very little. So I thought I’d share the latest news!
I’ve been working on a personal project very close to my heart. It’s a documentary called 30 at Thirty. On November 14th I turned 30. Like most of us I was dreading the birthday but then it happened and I felt amazing! I feel like I’m the greatest version of me. I had also been brain storming ideas for a personal photo project to work on and at that moment it all came to be. So, I’ve given myself 1 year to interview and photograph 30 women at the age of 30. I’ve decided to keep it just inside the US, but I want to make sure I interview women from all over our country. To date I’ve been to: CA,DC,DE,FL,HI,IL,MO,OR and I’m trying to plan a road trip to TEXAS maybe in the Summer.

Each subject gets to choose where she is photographed. The interview consists of the same 15 questions (I’ll get into that later). But I will share this- I’m learning thru this process that as a whole this generation is working hard to be our best selves, (no) not all of us are drowning in student debt, almost all of us want a family, and we all suffer from anxiety.
Here’s 18 portraits from the series so far:
Are you 30? Do you identify as female? If you answered YES to both of those questions and live in the US please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org , I’d LOVE to interview you.
Stay tuned for more!

Hey there, as the busy wedding season comes to an end for 2016 I thought I would go a different route with this post and share something a bit different with you all. This is very timely given the events that have happened in our country this week.
Recently I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a DC based culinary artist named Mike. Mike owns a string of food trucks; DC Ballers (Falafel) , Rollin’ Pizza, and Roaming Rooster. Mike is a Ethiopian- Canadian that came to the US in the mid 90’s to live closer to his family and pursue his dream of starting a food truck empire! Cooking is Mike’s passion, he uses fresh ingredients, and perfected recipes. Oh, and his chicken is free-range and hormone free!
Today, he has one of DC’s most successful food trucks, and unarguably THE BEST fried chicken I’ve ever had!
Here is a look at his business and the incredible people he has on his team…
The next time you find yourself in downtown DC around lunchtime look out for one of Mike’s trucks!
Head on over to Catalyst Wedding Co. My guest blog post for them just went live this morning! Engagement photos, why are they a good idea? I tried not to ramble on for too long, but my feelings are so strong on the topic…
Thanks for reading!
