Have you payed it forward? Have you heard the phrase "People over Profit" (Dale Patridge). Its the beginning of a new year and my goal is to give as much as I possibly can. In January, I held a GIVEAWAY on Instagram for a FREE children session. What better way to start the new year with FREE things, portraits of your children and a fun afternoon down by the beach. These sweet kids were a blast to take photos of. A little over four years ago I met Skylar, the oldest when I worked at the Boys and Gils club. She has always been such a sweet girl and a smile that lights up the room. It was so great to see her and see how she has grown into such a caring individual. Laura, their mother was beyond excited to get pictures of her kids. She had expressed to multiple times how thankful she was for this opportunity and that she had never had pictures taken of her kids. That feeling alone is what gives me pleasure in what I am doing. The feeling that I am helping others in such a simple way of photos gives me Joy. I know she will cherish these photos each day that goes by. I am thankful I am able to help.
I challenge you to step out and pay it forward...even if its buying the stranger that's standing behind you a cup of coffee. A little bit of happiness can go a long way.
It's great to be a kid.
