Photo Blogging Challenge-Photographer's Choice

July 31, 2016  •  13 Comments

This month for the photo blog challenge the theme is "Photographer's Choice" and I'm choosing to feature photos that I took for the organization My Story Matters, and non-profit organization whose mission statement is- "My Story Matters creates storybooks which help lift a child’s self-esteem, give individuals courage to face difficult situations, and tell stories that uplift and encourage each of us to be better. These experiences are extremely rewarding."  The project that I was lucky enough to help with was taking pictures of refugee girls living in Salt Lake.  The girls I photographed were sisters from Tanzania.  As you can see from the pictures below they like to have fun, tease each other and play soccer.  The pictures I took were made into books that the girls can keep to tell their story.  Below the pictures are some of the messages that were included in the book.

Great choices of photos for the theme this month. I like the close up profile photos. Really well done. At the same time the ones, such as jumping, show a fun, happy time. A series of photos like this tells a story, so that is really cool. Nice work!

I'm sure that the girls will always keep these brilliant photos and remember their stories, which they will look back on for time to come. Great work.

Just wow! Terrific photos, terrific story and terrific of you to support an important community group. Wouldn't it be wonderful if every young person could make the same affirmative statements that these two girls have made.
