This family is special.

I met Daniela a few months ago. She’s a fellow photographer, and tremendously talented. I reached out to a community on Honeybook looking for artists who might be interested in being a part of a project I’ve been working on. The project is to bring light and much needed awareness to mental health. Daniela told me she was interested.
A couple of months after our first email, I drove to Asheville, North Carolina to meet Daniela. We sat outside on her porch talking. She told me her story. We cried together. And laughed together. We walked around and she showed me her home, her sanctuary. I met her family and sweet doggos (and plants). We created a bond that day.

Not long after, we decided to trade sessions. So, one afternoon I met Daniela and her family at Max Patch in Hot Springs. It’s a gorgeous mountain with a wide open meadow. There were tons of people hiking and setting up camp. Everyone sat around, waiting for the sunset. Unlike us. I had the kids jumping around acting like their favorite jungle animals.

It was a beautiful day with beautiful people. I am so glad to call them friends.
