There’s nothing like family. I don’t think anything can compare to the relationships you build within family and the love you have within that family. We had the opportunity to see this first hand at our first Kenya Benefit Shoot!
These families where all so excited to not only get their photos taken but also to support the Rehema Children’s Home in Nairobi, Kenya. Kim, Ana Sofia and I will be traveling to Kenya this coming Janurary to do some work with the Children’s Home there. We’ll be doing some photography work for the home, documenting the many stories of survival and hope that the children (many who are orphaned) are living, and offering our support and help in any way we can while there. I (andres) grew up in Kenya and have always longed to go back and reconnect with a big part of my past and what we believe is a big part of our future in continuing our work with orphans in developing countries.
We’re so excited and grateful that so many people here in the U.S. have come out to help us in our desire to help these kids. We have two more Benefit Shoots coming up this month and can’t wait to meet more beautiful families!
Thank you all for coming out and allowing us to document your families in a unique way. We’ll update you all about our trip on our blog and Facebook pages. For now here’s a preview of some of our favorite images from the day…
