Meet Darren and Hannah. They are packing up their life in America to go care for orphaned and abandoned children in Mexico. Their heart is to shower these kids with God’s love, hope and promise for tomorrow—all the while meeting their immediate needs of today for food, water, shelter, clothing, and educational supplies. Darren and Hannah have decided to do all this as part of the Back2Back team, an amazing organization that’s changing the lives of children not only in Mexico, but in Nigeria and India as well. This photo session is the beginning of their fundraiser campaign, of which I will be designing special event invites, thank you cards, and other goodies. So stay tuned for more in the next few weeks.

If you’d like to get involved or simply learn more, check out the Back2Back site and blog. And in fact, if you are a client of mine, you have already contributed to this organization with your studio purchase. Cool, huh? Read more about my passion and promise here.

I feel this first image is so telling of where they are now in their lives together—tenderly holding hands as they step out in faith on their new adventure together. The images to follow are just as endearing and are filled with much joy, love, spirit, and trust. Darren and Hannah, you will do just beautifully out in Mexico together.
