Giving Gown 2018

Image by Michael Martinez Fine Portraits Hi everyone! It’s good to finally share a bit with you about Giving Gown with you.

Giving Gown-This Week!

I am so excited that Giving Gown is this week! In preparation, I have to share one of my favorite stories. This sweet girl visited us in 2015 and I befriended her as I was walking around getting interviews with everyone I could get permission from.

Clervenson Charles

My name is Clervenson Charles and I’m 5 years old. I am a very shy boy. I like drawing & coloring and my favorite thing to do is play soccer. I help my home by sweeping the floor. Each day I walk to school. If you asked me what I’d want to be after I finish school, I won’t answer. These sweet details about Clervenson were taken during his interview only a few weeks ago. He may not have an idea yet what he wants to do when he grows up, but if he gets a sponsor, that worldView full post »

Purple Jars Story: The Callejas Family

I am fortunate to be introduced to people by clients and friends that have extraordinary God-sized stories.

In return, I love to learn and share their stories. The Callejas family was nominated as a Purple Jars family by a dear client/friend and I was pleased to know they were willing to acceptView full post »
