earlier this year, i teamed up with the american heart association to create a photo story called, "words from the heart". we created a gallery of images of child survivors of heart disease and defects. it was displayed at the Heart Ball in Monmouth County, NJ. this personal project was very special to me. i LOVED meeting all the children and I was in awe of their strong spirit, huge hearts and close community. they were all courageous fighters who taught me the meaning of hope. i was so honored to take their portraits.
