Help Portrait

11 Dec

Help Portrait is happening around the world tomorrow.  It is “a shift in thinking … a movement of photographers  who are using their time, equipment and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate this holiday season.”

I was thinking this morning as the girls were eating breakfast about how many thousands of pictures Joel takes of the girls.  (I take a few – but, he is the mastermind behind all our really good ones!) There are pictures of them in their pjs reading, them after they have gotten dinner all over the cute faces, them in dress-up and, them at special occasions.  Day to day they are the moments we want to remember because they are them.

So for tomorrow, I am so glad other people will have their picture taken.  I hope they will feel beautiful, they matter, and this moment of their lives, good or bad, is worth recognizing simply because they are worth recognizing.
