Last week I had the chance to help out with a great event that a fellow photographer organized. Sarah Hurd (https://www.seenandhurdphotography.com/) works with the Jefferson County School district. A couple years ago she thought of offering free “Mommy and Me” photos to teen girls. Two years ago was their first event. Last year they needed to cancel due to COVID-19. I was able to volunteer this year and it was such a great experience! Eight teen moms signed up for a 20-30 minute time slot and were guaranteed 5 digital photos of them with their kiddo(s). Amber, the other photographer, and I split up the girls and definitely delivered more than the 5 guaranteed photos. 🙂 Here is a sample of some of the shots.
My mom was a senior in high school when I was born so I had a bit of a personal connection to these young ladies. The four young moms that I met really impressed me—-they have dreams of being medical examiners, counselors, and cosmetologists. They were all very engaged with their children and smart. I wish them all the best!
