Over the past few months, I've been pickier about what assignments I take on as I try to transition into more full time personal documentary projects. Saying 'no' to a lot of work that I've otherwise would have said yes to, has been proving to be easier than I thought. By taking on fewer assignments, I've been able to take more intimate portraits, something that I hope will carry into the projects I am now concentrating on. This is one of my favorite images of an editorial shoot that I said 'yes' to. Melody is starting a training program for teachers/parents/coaches to work with young women in achieving overall happiness, strength and confidence. She commissioned me to take photographs of her, and I couldn't be happier that she did.
Tamisha, a ballerina from Trinidad who rose her way to the top in New York. I've been lucky enough to work with her as part of a personal project after being inspired by the story of Misty Copeland.
