Earlier this summer I received this thank you note from Minnesota Heart Gallery for my volunteer photography services. Minnesota Heart Gallery is a photographic exhibit featuring portraits of youth who are, or have at some time been, in need of an adoptive family.
Due to the nature of the project, I can’t show any photos, but I can post the thank you card.
In the past I’ve traveled to the subjects location or a location close to them. In this last case we met at the Mall of America, which was the subjects preference. We then contacted MOA security for approval of this photo session. It was a relaxed photo session, as we walked around MOA and created images as we found items of interest for the background, or found sweet light. Our young subject was such a pleasant, beautiful person, with an incredible smile, that I found myself talking about adoption when I arrived home.
