Pay it Forward with Photography

I had a reader send me this email and I had to share it with you in hopes that it would inspire more to get out their cameras and share the gift of photography! I want to hear your stories too!

Dear Noemi,

You don’t know me, but I know you!  Ha, the gift of the blog. I have been reading your blog for over a year and have loved the photos, inspiration and energy!  I just wanted to share with you a bit of something I did, inspired by your early January blog about photography being a gift.

A friend of a friend asked me to take some photos of her daughter’s 10 day old baby.  We ended up stopping by unannounced and I took over 100 photos very quickly.  This is a young family, four kids in less than four years! I am just an amateur (as you can see!) with a decent camera and some passion for capturing faces.  I tried to instill some love for reading by taking a photo of each kiddo holding a favorite book.

Thanks for the inspiration.  I hope that at least half of everyone who reads your blog does this at least once.  If I get some outdoor photos of this family in the Spring, I will send some to you so you can see my real talent, LOL.

God Bless you and your beautiful family!

p.s.  I downloaded these photos to, printed about 80 and put them in an album I bought on clearance at Target.  Cost: $30.  Mom’s reaction:  Priceless.











THANK YOU NANCY! I love real stories…especially when I know it will inspire others!
