It’s Official now. I am a “Face” of PPA! Hooray!
I received an email from PPA back in July asking me if I would do this. I get so many emails every day and did not see it until the End of November when they asked me again. ( I’m so glad they did ) Right then I was so busy and then the weather got so cold here in KC that I put it off. Finally when it looked like the wether would not get better for a while I grabbed my camera and went out and took this “selfie ” for the Faces Pic. Did I mention that is was around 10 degrees outside? : )
PPA did something cool with one of the versions – they added snow that is actually falling. If you would like to see it go to this link – it’s kinda fun!
A little over a year ago I was approached by The Professional Photographers of America Magazine (PPA) wanting to publish my “Hands that Heal” image that had been chosen for the PPA loan collection. It is quite an honor to have been chosen for this because in an entire year only around 40 images out of thousands are chosen to be featured in the magazine. Now close to a year later PPA again approached me wanting to feature the “story” behind that image. I always feel so grateful for the talent that God has given me and for the opportunities that come where I can use my talent to help in some way. In this case the many surgery Images that I took for Children’s Mercy Hospital helped them to raise over $650,000.00 for a new cardiac unit. Some of the images are also being used by the Down Syndrome Guild to help educate parents of children who have to undergo open heart surgery. To see the images taken , visit the Giving back section of my website.
