Once a year I round up the troops for our annual “family” portrait. This past year was no exception. Well maybe, except for the fact I forgot to post the photos on the blog! At last here are my two favorite images from our family portrait session. My mentor and friend Tom Moore photographed us. This has been an ongoing tradition. It’s fun to look back at Dzifa and I (of course the dogs too) to see how much we have changed.
Last Thursday I had the opportunity to give back to my community. I participated in volunteering my time to Flat Irons Community Church to photograph an event called Shine. It was one of the most moving and inspirational nights of my career. It was an event where the proud got humbled and the humble got elevated. The idea was to throw a prom for disabled people in the community. It was a prom for those people that weren’t invited or able to go to their own prom. The age range was from 18-88 and they had 400 people come to the event. I was blown away by the preparation that went into this event. Everything was donated including the food, decor, photography, attire for guests, carnival games and so much more! To view a small video clip of this event you can click on this SLIDESHOW link. Most of the night I worked a portrait station with Sarah and Pilar. The best part was making the guests feel special, loved and honored. My portrait team girls were so sweet. I did run out to the dance floor for a few candid shots.
