CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

How does it feel to give birth and go back to work after 12 weeks leaving your new baby with the nanny? How much trust and courage does it take? How does it feel to raise kids who aren’t your own? How much love and patience does it take? And how does it feel when […]

“Nanny available, early July” a Goodbye Story Documented Well

Staring out in the distance, I’m always daydreaming. Seconds pass; I never realize why I catch myself doing these things. Always imagining myself as someone else, in someone else’s shoes.

My photography didn’t aspire to […]
