Texas Monthly has been on my ✨dream client list✨ for a long time. I was super giddy when Claire Hogan reached out to me for this assignment. Thanks Emily Kimbro for the recommendation~because I knew straight away where that came from 💖
Tension and Release for Texas Monthly “My friend Spencer Brown has always suffered from anxiety. Becoming a famous, globe-trotting DJ ramped up his stress—and gave him a way to channel it.”

Sonia Warshawski was born in 1925 in eastern Poland. During her teenage years, she survived three death camps: Majdanek, Auschwitz-Birkenau, and Bergen-Belsen. At Majdanek, through a peephole, she caught the last glimpse of her mother as her mother went to the gas chambers. Sonia was fifteen years old. One day at Auschwitz-Birkenau, to avoid being sent to the chambers, she hid in a pile of discarded prisoners’ clothes, holding her breath as guards poked the pile with their rifles. At Bergen-Belsen, as the British were liberating the camp in April 1945, she was shot through the shoulder. “I thought I was going to die,” she told me.
Today, at 93 years old, Sonia lives and works in Kansas City, running a tailor shop she opened with her husband some 38 years ago. She works six days a week. I had the opportunity to speak with Sonia last week, and she generously shared some of her story, which is also the subject of a documentary called “Big Sonia.”
My fifteen-year-old nephew has always wanted to visit New York City. After the sunset on day one, we sat down and had a riveting interview about his experience.
What did you think New York City was going to be like? Fun.
What did you think of Chinatown? I thought it was cool.
What did you think of Times Square? There were a lot of people.
What did you think of the subway? It was not as dirty as I thought it would be.
What’s your overall impression after day one? I like it.
I think tomorrow will be cool too.😎
Day two. We are using our words (sort of).
What was your favorite part of today and why was it your favorite? The 9-11 Museum. I learned a lot of things I didn’t know before, like the fact that you could see the smoke from space.
What do you think of the food at NYC Diners? It was actually really good. The sausage isn’t as good as the sausage in Texas, but the pancakes were really good.
How did you feel when you were at the top of the rock? I’ve never really seen anything like that before.
Yeah. Is that it? That’s it.
What did you think about the Italian food in Little Italy? It was great, other than the stomachache I had afterwards.
Overall impressions of day two…Today was probably better than yesterday. It was a great day. I like it here in New York so far.
Any other remarks? No.
Michael Jr’s last day in NYC
Tell me about the MET. What about it?
Was there a part of the museum that moved or excited you? I liked the graffiti from the 1800s on the Egyptian tombs.
How did you like the Broadway play? It was actually pretty good. Better than I thought.
Overall remarks about your first time in NYC. I thought it was a great experience. There are a lot of cool things that I’ve never done before and a lot of cool things I’ll probably never get to do again, maybe. I really liked the food and the places and some of the people. I had a great time.
Whenever anyone asks me who my dream client is, I always say, “AARP”. If you don’t follow their Instagram you totally should ( @aarpphoto ). I was overjoyed to photograph Nick and Lita for the August | September issue and even more delighted that this didn’t have to happen mid-air 😳. Thanks to Katrina Zook for making dreams come true, Violaine Bernard for the last minute retouch, Mark Borosch for the strong 💪🏽, and Lindsey Mataccheiro for hair/💄

Flying into Friday with longtime AARP members Nick and Lita Oppegard! The two have been married 41 years, flying the whole time. They are pictured here in their 1929 biplane. Of their travels Nick said, "Just because we're older doesn't mean that we are in any way less capable of savoring and sharing grand adventures." Catch these two in our August/September issue.
