thevmilko Writing postcards to my Opa has always made me think about where I am, and where I aim to be. I'm going to miss D.C., but I love what awaits. 9h

thevmilko My latest for the @washingtonpost, and part of a multi-part series, "The Screen Age: 13, right now" explores the life of Katherine Pommerening, a teenager navigating her way through this thing we call life. It took weeks of texting, talking and time to make this happen, and I couldn't be more grateful to @mjcontrera and @nicolemcrowder for being so supportive and wonderful to work with. I feel so privileged to have such amazing people to push me during these early stages of my career. 3d

thevmilko And that's a wrap! It was such a pleasure working with @kittenxlady for different projects these past few months. Keep an eye out for more about her and the nonprofit work she does for neonatal kittens. 2w

thevmilko I'm a firm believer that part of being a photographer is giving back to your community, whether it be on a local or global scale. I had my final shoot for the @capitalareafoodbank this week. After nearly a year of photo shoots, the organization will be releasing its first cookbook this year using my photos. This photo is from their urban garden plant nursery. 3w

thevmilko I gave myself an extra hour of sleep after working for @baltimoresun. When I woke up I was so happy to see one of my latest pieces for @washingtonpost on stands. Such a pleasure photographing for Kids Post-- a section I've been reading since I can remember. 1mon

thevmilko Woman washing her hair in Myanmar, Jan. 2016 ••• The last week has been shooting, editing, applying for grants and resisting the urge to just burn things to the ground and start from scratch. Grateful for all that the year has already brought my way and the community that supports me here in DC, but itching to get back out into the field. One month until new take-offs and landings. 2mon

thevmilko The last few weeks have been full of food photo shoots tucked between my usual documentary/journalism work. I spent yesterday @stickyricedc doing video and stills of their menu and the chefs behind it.. Looking forward to seeing what creative director @sarahillthecool does with it. 2mon
