So I had to borrow this picture from Brandy, as I did not actually shoot any photos tonight. I needed a night off from everything. It has been a long week and another long week looms ahead. I was honestly so tired and worn out that I didn’t want to go anywhere. But Hannah encouraged me to go. So tonight I relaxed and enjoyed my time with Hannah, Brandy, Nick and a big group of great Chivers. We played some games, donated to a good cause, talked with some fun people and had a lot of fun ourselves. It was a good night and I needed it. So thank you Brandy for the lovely photo and for inviting me to what is always a good time and thank you Hannah for encouraging me to go when I wanted to be a bum and not go out.
Yet another great time with other Chivers & Chivettes! The meet up tonight at Dave N Busters was such a good time.
This meet up was to support the Hamilton County Humane Society! Met a lot of great people and raised money for the abandoned fur babies!
I love being involved with Chive and what it stands for. If you don’t Chive yet, you should. Get behind something that’s amazingly hilarious, yet supports so many great charities.
This is Colton Darst. He is a year and a half old. On September 20 2012 he was born. At birth he was diagnosed with Arthrogryposis, a disease characterized on the outside by severe contractures of the joints in the arms and legs.
I had the pleasure of photographing this happy baby this evening at a Chive event to raise money for him at the Stacked Pickle in Fishers IN.
I saw no disease. I saw a happy baby who loved the comfort of his parents, a bit overwhelmed by all the people, a child who loves french fries and gold fish crackers, I saw people coming together to help donate to a child whom 1/2 of us had never met before tonight. I saw happiness. I saw loyalty to humanity. Nights like I witnessed tonight are the reason I LOVE to shoot.
I’d like to thank Colton’s parents for sharing. Sharing so we are aware. Sharing a beautiful child. Sharing your family. Thank you to Stacked Pickle of Fishers for hosting a great event. Thank you Chive, for opening awareness to life. For creating a website that has brought so many people together, helped so many people & continue to give laughter.
If you don’t Chive, please check it out. KCCO!!
