MALLORIE - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Fashion Photographer

The world is full of talented artists who've abandoned their craft because they simply didn't have the perseverance to see their story to the end.

When the story of Mallorie Mendoza is written -- probably sometime between her third successful Broadway run and her third Oscar win -- it will be a story of inimitable talent backed by genuine kindness and an unswerving commitment to reaching her goals. 

How could we be anything but inspired?
