    • Glenys, too late for 2012, but not too late to mark your calendar for this year—like we’re doing early for (in)RL—or putting the concept in action right now in our own lives. 🙂

  1. Hi, this is awesome…I have always had a burning desire to be a photographer aand never pursued it. My brother gave me a old school 35mm camera that I am trying to get acquainted with. I don’t know what I’m doing but I will just keep researching and trying! I have been waiting to find my place of service for God…and this post just jumped off the screen at me! Thank you my dear for your post!

  2. In 2011 there was a Help Portrait event in our area and my hubby and I volunteered as escorts. It was A.MAZING! Truly one of the most meaningful events we have ever had the privilege of participating in. We were very disappointed when the organizers were unable to do it again!

    • Karen, that’s awesome! Maybe there will be another event in your area this year. The one I usually attend didn’t happen this year, so I went to another location. I think my husband will continue to volunteer with me and a friend told me that she wants to, too.

  3. What a beautiful way to serve. In the magazine I edit, we recently featured a woman who volunteers for a palliative care organization as a photographer. She takes beautiful pictures of families who are preparing for a family member’s death so they will have this lasting memory. I am in awe…

  4. This sounds like something wonderful. My daughter will be attending school for photography in the fall. I’ll ask her to get the word out about this!

  5. Interesting way to help people with their self-esteem. Keep up the good work and prayerfully some may come to know God through your acts of kindness!

  6. Dawn,

    I came across this post via twitter. Thank you so much for writing this. It’s absolutely beautiful! Also, thanks for serving alongside of us. We couldn’t do this without people like you. I can’t wait to continue serving with you!
