I’ve had a few people tell me that I should start my own photography business. While I take this as a huge compliment, I’ve never had that intention. I love having photography for me and my job for an income. However, for fundraising, I knew I needed to do something with photography. Which is how Moose Prints and Moose Shoots were born.
My first Moose Shoot was with one of my favorite kids. Practically family, and hopefully family in 20-25 years(you got that, Lena and Adrian?!), but not yet. I’ve blogged about it before, but his adoption timeline parallels Gus’s. Our families walked through it together and a few weeks before Gus came home from Russia, Adrian came home from Ethiopia. I’ve watched this boy grow and change so much in the past (almost) 2 years. And when his mom asked me to photograph him and his beloved doggies, I was super excited. And nervous.
But, it was a blast!
And, we rounded off the night with silhouettes.
It was a great time. Thanks, Danae, Adrian, Lucy and Lacey for letting me spend time with you and “shoot” you!
I’m also so excited to share that we are just $259 from our May 1st goal. $259! 5 days ago, we were $1400 from that goal! After the May 1 goal, we will still have another $1300 to raise by June 1. But, I keep reminding myself to relax. God is bigger than that goal. Shouldn’t $1141 in 5 days remind me of that?
To those of you who have donated, thank you so much! We’re overwhelmed by your generosity.
And to anyone who is interested in helping this come together…
