Last week I was able to go to the opening of this year’s Heart Gallery. For those of you who don’t know the Heart Gallery is a traveling exhibit of photographs of Utah foster children. Participating photographers donate a portrait session and a framed portrait. The photos end up going in their adoption profiles and a large framed print goes in the gallery. Having a photo in the Heart Gallery greatly increases the kids’ chance of being adopted. It was great to see all the photographers come together to donate their time and talents to photograph these great kids who are looking for a good home. I had the pleasure of photographing Brittani this summer. She is a great girl and I wish her all the best. I was so happy to see that she is in the process of being adopted by a really nice family. She and her new parents were at the event and I got to present them with her photos.
One of the local television stations was there and interviewed Brittani and her new mom. You can even see Dan and I in one of the shots in the story. You can view that interview here.
