As a Philadelphia native, I believe in the importance of supporting my community. Growing up in a diverse city surrounded by different people and cultures has made me the person I am today. Now more than ever, I find it crucial to show support and love to the newest members of our city and country. This is why my photography business is a proud partner of HIAS Pennsylvania. HIAS Pennsylvania provides legal and social services to low-income and at-risk immigrants and refugees, assisting them on their path to citizenship. Naturalization ceremonies, like weddings, symbolize a new chapter in life, and gaining American citizenship is the accumulation of months, or sometimes years, of hard work. I photograph these ceremonies because I believe these great achievements deserve to be recognized and documented. I also just love capturing love.
