I traveled with my camera and captured some great candid shots, family groupings and intimate portraits. The sisters also brought along photos of their gatherings through the years.

MLK Day March & Celebration on Monday, January 21 was my second event shoot in Tucson. My focus for the day was the celebration (speakers) in Reid Park. As one of several freelance photographers covering the event, it felt like quite a collective and communal event.
The Women’s March Tucson was my first photo event in town. It was a beautiful and energizing day. I captured images that represented the community and event participants in a balanced way.
