July was my first month working full time as a photojournalist with the MetroWest Daily News. I feel privileged to have a job that allows me to meet new people and explore new places every day. I am so grateful to all of the people that have let me enter their lives so far. This month brought me to triathlons, playgrounds, protests, circus tents, arm wrestling arenas and, of course…puppies. I can’t wait to continue working and improving my photography with every assignment.
