The images are of my eight-year-old daughter during the Covid-19 Stay-at-Home order in Colorado.  She is an only child so we encourage imaginative play and creativity to fill her social void. Taking photos of Sophie is a way for us to work together on a creative endeavor and for me to teach her about photography.  Like many children around the world, Sophie misses her friends and looks forward to resuming playdates and school once the crisis is over. 

After more than a decade in New York City working as a professional documentary and portrait photographer, I now live in Denver, Colorado where I continue to pursue my artistic passions as a fine art photographer. My current projects explore multiculturalism, heritage, and identity. My interest in other cultures grew from my own experience as a Caucasian-American woman who is married to an Indian man. My husband and I are raising our daughter to appreciate the beauty of her multicultural heritage.
