Today I had the honor to participate in the Help-Portrait movement started by Jeremy Cowart of Nashville, TN. It was such an honor to work with a great group of photographers and the wonderful families that participated. As of the last update that I saw, over 10,000 people were photographed today. This is amazing and awe inspiring to see photographers giving back to their communities.
I was blessed by the families that we had the honor and opportunity to photograph today. Today wasn’t about the photographers, it was about the people who came to get photographed. We had the chance to meet a young man (13 years old) who was in remission of leukemia for three years. This young man had such a great spirit about him and wanted to get a photograph with his parents, but especially his father. The family traveled for an hour to come get their portraits made. I have a hard time putting into words the experiences I had today.
I hope that everyone takes time in this season of giving to find a way to fill a need in their community. It will bless you and the one you help in ways that you cannot imagine.
