when life gives you lemons

when life gives you lemons...make orange juice.

diversity. we talked briefly about this last week but i wanted to bring it up again. as artists, it is so important that we try different things so our work can be ever evolving. as artists in the social media space, with a platform to share our voices, it is so important that we represent multiple voices, people, races, cultures, & so on. not just our own. it has been brought to my attention recently that there is not nearly enough diversity within the photo community on instagram & i would like to contribute to changing that, by shooting all kinds of people, regardless of if i think they will get a lot of likes or have the same "look" that's "in" right now. likes are not important. people are important. i hope you all will make an effort to make this change with me. 

the support i have received from my recent twitter and instagram posts about diversity has been so incredible. it's truly inspiring to see so many people joining together to promote love, diversity, community, and equality. since the photos were so widely received, i figured i would share a few more from the set here. remember, when life gives you lemons, make orange juice! or apple juice, or grape juice, or really any other fruit juice your heart desires. :)
