Hi there everyone!!
I am so over the moon to share something so exciting and humbling at the same time..
Over the summer I was asked to be a part of a such a beautiful project where I was asked to photograph a very deserving family who was chosen for a home makeover through City Farmhouse, Better Homes and Gardens and the Rebuilding together !! . My images would decorate this families home and be cherished for years to come. Since photography has been such a blessing in my life in so many, many, ways that when I was asked to be a part of this incredible giving back opportunity I knew immediately it was for me. So of course I was super happy to get ON BOARD!! I had such magnificent day getting to know this beautiful boy Liam and his sweet selfless Grandmother Karen.. she was so very grateful, and kind, that it just swelled my heart even more!! Not to mention the cuteness of little Liam!! :::SWOON:::
My sweet friend Jen from City Farmhouse has had this idea for a while now and she pitched her idea to Better Homes and Gardens and they couldn't be happier to work with her!! I am so happy to say that the entire makeover including some of my images are published in this issue here!!
These are her words :
"This deserving homeowner makeover is something I had been wanting to do for while so when a pitching opportunity with BHG presented itself, I knew it was the right platform in which to share my idea. Blogging has been a wonderful career for me, full of rich blessings I never could have imagined. With that being said I was looking to bring a purpose to what I do & longed to bring joy to someone else."
~ I couldn't agree more ~
"I want to share with you a little more about the homeowner Karen & her grandson Liam from Long Island, NY. This family touched my heart in ways I never knew possible. At times the journey was filled with many obstacles but we never waivered from the goal. Which was to give this amazing gift to the most amazing family. I witnessed the most selfless acts by so many involved in this project that it changed me as a person. And the gratitude Karen & Liam had for us made it all worth it, to see their faces as they walked into the room, all done for the very first time is something I will NEVER forget.
