In our briefing, she said that most of the families cannot afford to have a decent portrait taken for their family and their child. And she thought that it will be a great idea to use her talent and her connections to give something worthwhile for the kids and their family. There was an overwhelming response from sponsors to make the event enjoyable not just for the kids but as well their family.
Kudos to Ms. Pilar and the rest of the team for making something tangible from the intangible... come to think of it, that's what photographers do, and I'm so proud to be one. It was beyond words! Seeing the kids happy after receiving their portrait was priceless. Interacting with them and seeing how brave they are has changed me and made me look at life a little bit different.
