While waiting for the Supreme Court of the United States to decide on Prop 8 , Mike Kepka and I bring you the story of Elana and Marlene. Made for the San Francisco Chronicle.
One of the things I love about newspaper is that finding awesome people with cool stories is my job. I got a call one day from my super supportive Director of Photography at the paper and she asked me to create a multimedia piece for Prop 8.
That was it. No further rules or restrictions. I'm so thankful for the incredible creative freedom our bosses give us.
So I started brainstorming ideas and Mike and I set out to find a couple with a powerful story.
When we first talked to Elana and she told us a little about her and Marlene's relationship and the new addition of their baby girl, we knew they would be the perfect family to help humanize this issue.
So to Elana and Marlene I say thank you! Thank you for inviting us into your lives. Thank you for opening up your home. Thank you for allowing us to share your story with the world.
