The August issue of Marie Claire (on stands now) features photos I took of Momma Love momma Kitty Stillufsen in an article about how she “proposed” parenthood to her two gay best friends! The three of them conceived and are raising a daughter named Olive together. It’s an incredible story. In addition to being excited to shoot Kitty’s story, I’ve been wanting to do something with my art for a long time now that will support issues surrounding gay rights. I’m an ardent supporter of gay marriage, but it seems hard sometimes to figure out how to do anything actually productive with your art to support causes you believe in. This was a unique opportunity to do just that. To support the rights of people who love each other to have their commitments respected. To honor this beautiful family with the respect they deserve.
This story has since run, with these and additional photos, in Marie Claire Australia and Greece, and in Italian Grazia Magazine.
