I have been dying to get on and blog about my most recent opportunity. For the month of February & March I was able to shoot the cover story for a local magazine here in Columbia called Reach Out Columbia! The February cover article was about an annual reach out motorcycle event and ride. Motorcycle groups and organizations came from all over to meet and ride together to the local Veteran’s Affairs Hospital to deliver gifts to the disabled veterans.
The weekend of the event I started losing my voice and the morning of the actual ride I woke up and couldn’t as much as make a peep! Losing my voice the day of the shoot/event created some obstacles especially with it already being so loud with the hogs:). This experience really made me step a little bit into my son Gabe’s world. It was so frustrating not being able to talk, or trying to but not being understood. It truly is a feeling of being trapped in your own body.My heart breaks for my son and all children who experience speech and neurological disorders. But I rejoice in the fact that my little guy despite his issues is the happiest 6 year old you’ve ever met! It turned out to be a wonderful shoot and a great time, and such a blessing to see unexpected people giving back to our veterans who have given so much!
