Beautiful: Help is beautiful. Help comes in all different forms. You can offer help. You may need help. And the truth is, at one point in all of our lives, we've each asked for help. Sometimes help comes in the smallest form. Sometimes (without us even realizing) the smallest gesture can be the most powerful.
This was my second year offering my makeup artistry skills to Help-Portrait here in Phoenix. With lipstick in hand, many of us gathered this past Saturday at a family shelter to help in any way we could. The families we met reminded me why I do this. I do this to make someone else feel good at a time of need and in return it makes me feel really good to know that I helped put a smile on their face with the help of my makeup brushes!
Special thanks to the lovely Stacey Woodward of Dream Photography Studio for organizing Help-Portrait Phoenix (you are my hero!) and to all the photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, and volunteers I had the pleasure of working along side. I'm looking forward to Help-Portrait 2014! Thank you to Ryan Bryan of Smiling Photography for snapping this picture of me, Tracy, and Kyndol!
