Last week I helped a local non-profit organization to create professional photography of their little ones. “The Foundry” is a faith- based ministry in the heart of the west end of Bowling Green. They provide free preschool and after- school opportunities for children who live in the poorest school districts in Bowling Green, and they rely on grants, church and personal donations as well as free services from our community. Knowing that children from economically challenged homes are more likely to begin school already behind their peers, The Foundry’s goal is to make sure that these children begin school Kindergarten ready. As I was taking pictures of these sweet kiddos, I noticed the patience and loving environment that the staff provided-overcoming language barriers and making them feel at ease having their pics taken. I enjoyed every minute being around those little ones!

And once again I was reminded of my favorite Quote: “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” Helen Keller

I like to tell stories with my pictures. Do you have a story to tell or know of a non-profit organization that does? Let’s do it! One picture at the time! ella@ellapphotography.com
