International Women's Day | A Portrait of my Grandmother

In honor of International Women's Day, here is one of the last portraits I took of my grandma a few years back. Here she is at her house in Allentown, PA, a house that she lived in for more than 60 years. A house that my dad grew up in, and a house that I loved. I miss her everyday.
