What Do People Save From Their Burning Homes?

August 27, 2012 | By | No Comments

Woman holding wedding photo of her grandparents, one of the only things salvaged from the wildfire that burned down her home.

This is so moving.

God forbid anyone reading this ever has to choose what to save from their burning home.

Staff photographer Mike Simons of the Tulsa World interviewed 10 people burned out of their homes and photographed them with the few things they were able to salvage. I encourage you to listen to the audio clips beneath each photo.

Some folks got out with nothing but the burned clothes on their backs. Others were able to grab a few things most important to them, including:

  • “22 Magnum Pistol, clothes, important papers.”
  • “My faith. [Bible] My citizenship. [certificate of US citizenship]”
  • “[a photo of] … my grandma, my grandpa… this is their wedding picture. both have passed away. this is just one of the few things you have left.”
  • “Lever-action 30.  I do a lot of hunting. And for family protection. I got several of them. They’re all loaded.”

Jennie & Jonas – Family Portraits

April 10, 2012 | By | No Comments

These beautiful guys were visiting Vegas from northern Europe, via California, where they now live. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, fun, relaxed family. We spent an hour or so over at Sunset Park in Henderson. I love how we created formal, lit portraits and in-the-moment photojournalistic photos alike.
Jennie’s sister was kind and generous enough to arrange this photo shoot for her sister and her family.
