I only submit weddings and styled shoots to publications that share the same value for representation.
When I refer you to other vendors (and other photographers when I'm not available), I am committed to only referring to those who will serve all couples wholeheartedly.
I am stronger when I have a diverse array of educators (and let's face it, life is just more fun when you’re hearing from a variety of voices). I'm committed to only attending conferences and workshops that have diversity in their speakers and panels.
It starts with my family life. I'm committed to teaching my children about their own ethnic identities and culture, how to celebrate differences, and how to challenge hate in the world.
I know I will make mistakes along the way. I will apologize, ask for forgiveness, educate myself, and do better.
