Back in August I had the privilege of photographing Julissa Arce for the day as she took her Oath of Citizenship and became an American. As Julissa’s story unfolded, it became clear that we needed to tell the whole story- not just the story of that one day. ELLE.com asked me to write the piece, and it was published this week! A huge thank you to Julissa for allowing me to tell her story and for being so patient and so brave.
