On Wednesday, Beauty Revived announced the photographers chosen for their 50 Beautiful Children campaign this summer. I am so excited and honored to share that I have been chosen as one of those photographers! This group of photographers is not only insanely talented, they have such huge, giving hearts. I am proud to say I am sharing this journey with each of them!
Over the recent months, I have felt a tugging at my heart to give back somehow through my photography. I had no idea what that would look like but had faith that I would know it when the opportunity presented itself. I happened to find Michelle Gifford’s Periscope broadcast the day she was calling for photographers to apply to join this campaign. Definitely not coincidence. I never hesitated – I instantly applied and prayed that if that was part of my serving journey that I would be chosen. The morning I received my acceptance email, my heart was filled with happiness & excitement. As they say, the rest is history…
In a world where physical perfection is deemed the most beautiful, I hope to bring recognition to true beauty – the kind of beauty that radiates through one’s spirit & love for others. I want to feature a child who exemplifies just that through serving others, overcoming difficult situations, showing strength in the face of insurmountable trials, & does so with a giving heart and a smile on their face. We all know that children have the biggest hearts & are quick to share their happiness with those around them even when faced with their own obstacles. Let’s celebrate that!
This is where YOU come in. I need nominations! I want to hear about a child in your life that is all of that & more. I know there are so many out there that deserve recognition & have inspiring stories. With your help, I hope to find a sweet child to feature for this special campaign.
The chosen child will receive a complimentary session with me & the digital image files from that session. Their images & story will also be featured in Beauty Revived’s August magazine – in both print & digital form!
To nominate your child please EMAIL the following information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
– child’s name
– child’s age (must be 16 years or younger)
– a recent picture of the child
– your child’s story
Nominations will be accepted through Sunday, June 5, 2016. The chosen child’s family will be contacted by June 10th so we can begin planning your session!
Please share this campaign with any & all that you think may be interested. I am so excited to read all the inspiring stories of sweet children in our area!
Oh, the wonder of a new sweet baby soon to be arriving…
pure simple love.
