I read this very touching article today and just had to share it. It's about a photographer who photographed homeless families and gave them framed family portraits for mother's day. She wanted to help families who have lost everything preserve their family memories. You can read more at http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2009/05/10/2009-05-10_fotog_makes_these_mothers_day.html Have you ever volunteered your photography services to help those in need?

That was very nice of the photographer to do that for these mothers/women. I can't say that I have done anything like this I am just a amateur when it comes to taking pictures. I am glad that they were able to get a little something special to hold on to.

The article said that the photographer was also an amateur! Volunteering your photography services to individuals or organizations can be an excellent way to gain some experience!

I guess it would be something to take into conciderration. But first I would have to get a different digital camera. The one I have now takes special batteries that cost almost $10 a piece and they run out fast within a days time depending on how many photos taken.

What an awesome gesture, no I have not done anything like that, but now I will have to check out the family shelters sometime or hospitals. I like discovering new ways of displaying random acts of kindness. I am but an amature myself but people who are homeless doesn't look at your credentials. They are just blessed to have people like that demonstrate the goodness of some of humanity. May the photographer be blessed as well
