One day in a still hopeful 2016 I attended a legislative district vote in a high school gym somewhere south of Seattle. Getting in line I was fortunate enough to meet Jamian Lachelle Smith. Jami is a powerhouse of energy, intellect, and determination. And with the unreal results of the election we all hoped would be different, Jami took her disappointment and turned it into action – she decided to run for office. I was fortunate enough to have her pose for a couple of shots she could use in her campaign. I tried to capture the superhero that I saw before me.
