I photographed these two inspiring women recently for my #sistersandsurvivors project. They are Amy and Elizabeth Ziff (Elizabeth, on the right, is a #breastcancersurvivor). They're in a band together called BETTY @bettyrules and they also have a non profit called The BETTY Effect, helping women and girls, the LGBTQ community, and arts activists communicate and connect for personal power, social progress and peace through their performances and events. @gloriasteinem is among the list of movers and shakers on the board. I approached them about photographing them for my book project after listening to them sing at a fundraising event for @thetutuproject
Excited to connect with these two!
I did a lifestyle photo shoot on my roof deck awhile back and @kevakevs (the prettier model in the photo) came across this one illustrating an article about diversity in advertising by @oona_king on @google #thinkwithgoogle
I'm saving a few thoughts to share about this on my new blog coming soon.
Happy to have run into two talented #womenphotographers at the park today wearing red for #internationalwomensday. @gab and @manjee would love to see you again soon and talk some shop! Keep on keepin on 💥

I have to post one more because I think this one might be my favorite from the #bts photos I did at the @anaonointimates #cancerland fashion show. This is @bethfairchild president of @metavivor. She was the first of the models to graciously humor my inclination to photograph her in a dingy hallway by the bathroom. Love photographing fellow #creativewomen 😌. She's one of the models in the @refinery29 article that was published yesterday.

@r29fashion published interviews with several of the @anaonointimates #cancerland models along with my photographs including this one of @kiku333 (see link in bio for the article by @alexandra_ilyashov). Thanks very much!
This is another portrait I did behind the scenes at the @anaonointimates #cancerland fashion show. Meet @vonnjensen, a #transgender and #transcanceractivist. You might have seen some of the runway images online including @nytimes and @cosmopolitan. I'm humbled by the bravery and strength of all of the people who created this groundbreaking event.
Yay for the new multiple image post option! Here are 3 portraits I photographed behind the scenes at the @anaonointimates and #cancerland #Exposed fashion show during #nyfw. All of the models are breast cancer survivors. Jenn @starrazure (first image) was a rockstar at the show and had the opportunity to show off her beautiful @ryanashleymalarkey tattoo. Angeles @angelesalmuna (second image) looked magical and I love what Shay of @sspw is all about. All embody #fiercebeauty and #strongisthenewpretty. See more in my bio link.
#brooklynollie in the morning light. I can't believe I used to work at home alone all day without having this guy around to give a quick snuggle to 💞
Portrait I did of @daynadono creator of @anaonointimates with her sister Monica for my #sistersandsurvivors project. This was right before the @livingbeyondbc #butterflyball.
I'm really happy to have met them, and also to have had the opportunity to recently photograph the groundbreaking #anaonointimates and #cancerland fashion show @nyfw.
Chiara, creator of @beautythroughthebeast was my first #portrait subject for my #sistersandsurvivors photography book project that I started last August, 3 years after my #sister passed away after being diagnosed only 4 months earlier. I met @beautythroughthebeast through twitter and she's been through a lot since we met six months ago. Congratulations Chiara! You were awesome at the @artheartsfashion show 😊✊️
