I am really excited to share this second-round of photos from my series showing loving Muslim families that are sorely under-represented in a time of heightened Muslim fear.
I have had the good fortune of knowing Samia Jayed since we both worked for KIPP Houston. Samia has always been a warm, welcoming, detail oriented, and hard-working presence and those qualities are even more felt after seeing the qualities she and her husband, Aman, have passed onto their son! It's beautifully clear after watching her family interact that there's nothing but love to see here.
What also stood out to me is that there's nothing out of the ordinary about these photos either. These are three people and a puppy that just love each other, that put good out into the world, and are trying to live their lives as best as they can.
Thank you so much, Samia and Aman! It was so wonderful getting to take your photos and to spread your wonderful message!
