Pay it Forward

They say a picture speaks a thousand words and I truly believe it. An image can tell a story, freeze an important moment in time, and evoke a deep emotion, but what I find most important is that a picture has the ability to brighten someones day and put a huge smile on a proud mama's face. For me, it is what makes photography so rewarding. I thank God that He gave me this passion a few years ago, and I feel that it is very important for me to "to pay it forward" even if it is in the simplest of ways. Each season I try to give back whether it is photographing a child of a young single mom, contributing a session to a charitable event, or volunteering my photography skills for my FAVORITE pre-k teacher's class.

This season, I met a wonderful mom who leads a very busy life to say the least. She has three absolutely gorgeous girls and does a great job at updating her blog and posting updates on her Facebook account. Being a very busy mom myself, I know how hard it is to try to keep up with blogging and updating Facebook with current pictures, and for this particular mom, I knew a way I could help. Once a month, I will spend my lunch hour photographing these beautiful little ladies in their home. It will be "a day in the life of the Coy triplets". Yesterday was our first candid session, and I got to play with three of the cutest little pumpkins!

I am hoping for the day to come when I can tell these little cuties apart. Right now, I can't even tell you which two are identical, but I know it doesn't really matter. I just snap away with each one and hope that I can tell them apart when editing their pictures. It makes it easier when they aren't all dressed alike, but who could resist these darling Halloween outfits!

Thank you Stephanie for welcoming me into your home and allowing me to share your beautiful blessings!
