While studying in D.C., it was one of my goals to serve the community with my gifts. I volunteered at the local crisis pregnancy center, which gave me the idea to offer free photo sessions to families who usually can’t afford to pay for nice, professional portraits. A few of my friends tagged along and the day turned out better than I ever could have imagined. I couldn’t stop laughing behind the camera! [Yes, my friends did make fun of me … ] I became aware of the blessings I take for granted — even the simple fact that I can go out and take nice photos with my friends. So, enjoy these images! I am so happy to share them with you.
And here’s a bit of a look behind the scenes (for those of you who don’t know, that’s me in the striped dress):
