A friend asked me to photograph these strong refugee women who have just started their own day care businesses here in the United States. They are from countries like Uganda, Ethiopia and Congo. The children in these photos are from those countries as well as Rwanda, Somalia and Iran. It was inspiring to meet them. They work hard and love these kids.
The Stevens are a great family with three beautiful girls. Got to shoot them in their backyard, which is huge, nicely landscaped and really more like a public park.
Met up with a mom and her two kids and had fun hiking and shooting them in Boise’s foothills. We ended up at an awesome spot overlooking the city. Their little cousin also joined for a couple shots.
