Inspiration Day 1: Help-Portrait

H-P-LogoTM-horiz

Photography has the effect of moving people emotionally – and often times spiritually. A well captured image tells a story, a deep story.  Capturing the moment brings out life; whether a laugh, a smile, or a tear – it brings out emotion. Often times this small bit of joy brings out their spirit and empowers the ability to change.

 

Whatever your passion may be, make it count, make a difference.

 

My name is Brittany.

I am a single mother of 2 wonderful children. I come from a broken home. The last time I had my picture taken was when I was 10 years old and I believe it was just a school photo. I had my children young in a marriage that was not healthy and it eventually fell apart. I turned to alcohol and my life came crashing down all around me. I ended this program and have now found my way back to my Savior. It means so much to me that you all would take time out of your busy schedules to come bring some happiness and joy to us girls who’ve felt less than pretty for a very long time. Thank you. Also my brother is in the men’s program and because of you all letting me and my brother get our pic taken together was a very special thing ’cause he’s 27 and I’m 26. The last time we took a photo together was when we were 6 and 7.  That was over 20 years ago! Thank you for your kindness and the hope you’ve brought me that there are still people who care! Thank you.
