There is nothing better than seeing a big bright smile on someone's face. Especially when you are a photographer, and you get to make it last forever! This weekend I had a day full of capturing smiles. I started my morning at a fundraiser. Jack Trent & Co. hosted a free photo with Santa event at their office. They collected items and monetary donations for The Humane Society, Advocates Against Family Violence, The Ronald McDonald House, and The Closet. Santa was sponsored by The Next Step Seminar, who you learned about in a previous post. Yours truly was there taking the photos while being dressed as an elf! Santa and I joked with the kids that the reason I was taller than him was because I always eat all of his cookies. It was a great way to make all the children smile.
Once I left that event, I headed over to a friend's house to help her celebrate her graduation from Boise State University. It was great being able to share those moments with her, but most importantly to meet more of her family members. They were all full of smiles and joy, laughing and enjoying each other's company. Although I had just got off work, I knew I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I didn't take the time to capture those smiles. One thing that stuck out to me was all of their beautiful bright and shiny white teeth. It came to no surprise to me because one of their siblings is a dental hygienist. She keeps them on top of their dental hygiene. :-)
