I moved back to North Carolina and started doing photography of families and weddings and some newspapers.
Then I moved to Costa Rica with Kids Saving the Rainforest and baby sloth pictures working at a wildlife-rehabilitation clinic.

My favorite is a three-toed sloth named Monster.
She came in baby sloth pictures she was just two weeks old, and she was basically hysterical.
She was this tiny ball of fur who was found when crossing the road, and she was crying, crying, crying for her mom.
Throughout baby sloth pictures book, I talk about Monster and how she got her ironic name, but the book came out before we brought her to the release site.
Now, she's two and a half years old, and she's been released and she's doing really well.

She's come so far, and she's never been happier.
