Personal work drives me. Since the beginning of my photo career, I’ve been passionate about capturing the people I love. I’d never share them anywhere because I didn’t want to risk it being rejected, misinterpreted or not liked. It’s taken me 10 years to understand that I shouldn’t hide my inspiration. I shouldn’t pretend like […]

She passed the year we got married so the urgency to go went the day she passed. That changed this year when […]

I snapped […]

Kenzie Packrall Photography I have a necklace from afrolunatika that reads, “Si lloras por lo que no tienes, no podrás sonreir por lo que te rodea”. The translation is this: If you cry for the things you don’t have, you’ll never find joy in what already surrounds you. I’ve been meditating on this. So what […]
