This past month, I have been blessed with receiving kindness from so many clients and photographers on so many levels. When someone is starting their own business, there are so many challenges that must be faced on a professional and personal level. This business is competitive and cut throat. It is amazing to know that there are people out there who will put their ego aside and offer help where it is needed. For this I am extremely thankful.
This sparked an interest in me to run an act of kindness contest. I asked each person to submit a photo of either a good deed or a photo to represent the act with a short description. I was overwhelmed with the amazing and selfless things that people do for others from helping kids in Africa, to jumping out of bed to fight a fire, to growing vegetables for a good cause. The winner would receive a free portrait session.
It was very difficult to choose just one, as how can we judge or rank kindness? I wish I could run an unlimited amount of free portrait sessions and really see what the world is made of. There can only be one winner in a contest and we have chosen ours.
