Whaley Kids Images

Not sure if you all know this, but I've been teaching photography to some kids at Whaley Children Center. What a wonderful experience. My objective was to have them tell their story through photography. I wanted their images to be their voices. On Monday 4 of them, I and Miss Jazmine went on a photography excursion. On Tuesday 4 more photographed. These are just some of the images these awesome kids came up with. I'm so proud of them. This has been one of the best experiences I've ever had. Please do not copy or reproduce any of these images. They are copywright protected. We would really appreciate your comments, so please comment. The kids are very proud of themselves as well as they should be. debbie

Whaley Children"s Center Project

Today was my first class with some wonderful children from Whaley Children's Center in Flint. I absolutely am so blessed to be able to meet these kids. Children are amazing. The class was amazing. The children so receptive. They were given 4 words (Love, Hope. Sorrow, and Joy}. The whole idea was for them to tell their story through photography using these words to inspire them. I was so impressed with their creativity. I learned so much from them. I can't wait till tomorrows class. I am so looking forward to seeing their images. I'm working on a revenue to display their images. A show of their stories in art. I'll keep everyone posted on when etc. What a blessed day I just had. debbie

The absolute best of both worlds. We booked 2 high school senior girls I'm looking forward to photographing along with 5 more families. We have our own private beach.
