Fun shoot I did with this wild one on 35mm film @therealashsmith ✨ I also wanted to say something that's been on my mind for awhile now. This industry can get tough at times and I see a lot of photographers/artists getting so carried away with what trend is popular right now, what filter do I have to use, who do I need to meet just to social climb and make myself more exposed, and not focusing on their own unique craft. Instead of focusing on how to be the next big photographer or copying a certain style, why don't we find what we are good at and what we personally love to shoot instead of whats the new Instagram trend. I also see a lot of hate/jealousy between artists and we should all be on a team looking after one another and sending good vibes all around. This shouldn't be a popularity contest. I personally want to give a shoutout to 5 amazing and talented young women who are absolutely killing it right now! If you don't know who these ladies are you owe it to yourself to check out their work and say what's up! Much love you guys! @alimitton @zoeygrossman @akila_berjaoui @juliettecassidy @samidrasin 🌹🤘🏻
bride & her sweet maids ✨ spending this rainy day catching up on editing & recovering from a cold. Fun fact: I am actually way more productive (and in a better mood) on rainy/cloudy days -- maybe it's a redhead thing? I'm weird

Never compare your creative journey with someone else’s. It’s so easy to compare yourself to other photographers and feel you are not worthy. Look how far you have come and see your personal journey and wow! give yourself a pat on your back because you are doing great!

Padmalakshmi is a dedicated social worker and one of the subjects who touched our hearts. She was always so pleasant and kind and photographing her at her quaint residence was a lot of fun. She successfully underwent a hysterectomy with the help of the CMCHIS.
About to head in for a g-tube (stomach feeding tube) surgery. It's a bummer that she'll have to be admitted for 1-2 days, and that she'll obviously be in some pain. However, compared to everything Eliza has gone through, this is super a minor operation. AND, this is the best Eliza has ever been going into the OR - not on life support, not holding onto life by a thread, not paralyzed from drugs, not distressed. So, we're super thankful! Hopefully the last surgery for a while. #elizapaigejonkman#vsco#vscocam#makeportraits#vscoportraits#21#upsyndrome#nothingdownaboutit#iphone#iphone7#iphonepic
So often I hear the excitement and eagerness of having a portrait taken buried under words like, "after I get in shape, when I'm tan, let me grow my hair out first." and inevitably it doesn't happen. Not this night... @delriomegan and I hit the town to live in the moment and spread some #girlpower around. Go us!
