Ben and I are going to a really cool event tomorrow night, and I had to share. . .
It's the 30 Strangers exhibit, put on by the frightfully talented Justin Hackworth. During the month of April he took gorgeous photos of 30 different Mother/Daughter combos, all of which were strangers to him before hand.
Cooler than that (and seriously, that's already pretty cool) is that these ladies didn't pay him for his services. Rather than paying a sitting fee, they each made a donation to the Center for Women and Children in Crisis, in Provo. Seriously?! How generous is that? And what a fantastic cause. There are so many families out there, single moms finally escaping from abusive situations. . . which is NOT easy to do. And they can use all the help they can get. . .
SO, Thursday night is a big ol' party in downtown Provo (1 East Center Street - Suite 215) from 6-9pm. If you show up that night and donate to this truly worthy cause, Justin is going to take YOUR picture. If you donate $25, you can get a mother/daughter session of your own. If you donate $75, you can get a family session. People, that is an incredibly good deal.
We plan on donating and giving a couple of these sessions as gifts to some awesome women in OUR lives. I asked Justin, and he's OK with you doing that, so show up. . . donate (even if you don't want YOUR picture taken, SOMEONE you know does)
Look at this guy's work! Why would you NOT want him to take your picture?
