OLIVA-MCKEEN FAMILY || San Diego, CA || It was when Maria replied to a call I put out offering travel sessions in the San Diego area that I began to realize the networking power of the internet, particularly among my community of fellow photographers. Although we'd never met in person, Maria had learned enough of my work and style by way of Instagram to trust me to capture these images of her family. It was my first experience of its kind and has since paved the way for many more Instagram-born connections to move offline and into real life.
