Every time I visit Operation Breakthrough, I come home with pockets full of sunshine from the baby faces I see. When I talk to my students about photographing moments, I emphasize action, reaction, and interaction. But sometimes, a beautiful face with a big smile is a moment in itself.
I was treated to a double dose of sweetness this week when I visited Operation Breakthrough on Tuesday to photograph the kids, and again on Thursday, when I went on a scavenger hunt with the Circle of Friendship Auxiliary group. I was paired with the absolute cutest little boy named Kei’mon. He took me around the center as we gathered puzzle pieces then he curled up in my lap as I read him a book. If anyone has time to volunteer time or funds for this organization, you will be rewarded with hugs and smiles. It is well worth the time.
