Help-Portrait Orange County, Ca | Give Back | by Amy Bell Photography

I can’t tell you how happy I am to be part of this event that will take place around the world on December 10th. I will be participating in one of the 3 locations that we will be doing in Orange County, Ca. Here is a video that will give you a glimpse into what it is all about.

This was created by a photographer I admire and someone who is constantly using photography to bring a voice to people, the talented Jeremy Cowart. After the massive and devastating earthquake in Haiti he got tired of watching the news and flew out there to document and talk to the people about the experience, check out his gallery of photo’s by clicking here and tell me if you are not inspired or moved by it.

I know that I will walk away with much more than I am giving and if I can make a small difference to someone else than I am happy to do so. Everyone has a story to tell and I can’t wait to just listen.

Here is a story from someone that came a previous year:

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.
