My cousins Winter and Bella modelled for me in their backyard in south Philadelphia a couple of years ago. We had a lot of fun playing dress up and I let them use their imaginations to play pretend. They were such amazing little models. These were all shot on iPhone.
In Summer 2016 a mutual friend told me that she had read an article she liked by a woman in NYC and she had a “gut feeling” that the two of us would be friends. Sure enough, she was right. I met up with Katie Frank in Central Park for a photo shoot and we immediately hit it off. She has come to be one of my closest friends and biggest supporters, and we have both experienced so much since, from immense joy to the unspeakably tragic. I am so grateful for her friendship and her sunshine heart. She is absolutely my soul sister.
It’s incredible seeing these portraits now, almost three years later, considering what has transpired since. We’ve been through many battles, we are war vets who have been through a long tour of combat. May the next course be smoother for us both. I love you so much sister Katie!!!
