Do what you love, love what you do

Last Saturday, Yvette and I put together a mini photo shoot to raise money to help pay for the students who went to science camp. I don’t know much about photography, but I remember when I first discovered my love for capturing the quizzical faces of the young students at the childcare center I used to work for. After being placed in charge of snapping photos for their portfolios, I discovered how much I loved being able to narrate a picture, simply by capturing their facial expressions and their surroundings. So last Saturday, I tried just that, taking the love that already exists in the homes of our students and finding a way to pull them together. Here are a few of my favorites from the families that have allowed me to use their photos as a sample of our love fest.

This event was brought to our school by yours truly and my redheaded soul mate. As you can see, without our iphones, our imacs, our die cuts, twine, gerber daises, and my hubs who acted as our errand boy this event could not have happened.

  1. Rosalie, wow! What a fantastic idea, first of all; and the photos are beautiful too. There are so many reasons why this idea for a fundraiser puts others to shame! The focus on family, the celebrating of cultural heritage, stretching the classroom community outside of school…seriously awesome!
