I recently had the good fortune to meet about 20 energetic elementary aged kids and their mentors. I was asked to visit Bay View to capture portraits of these kids and their mentors. It was for an annual event the SFUSD Mentor for Success program does to custom create Mother’s Day cards and also thank the mentors for all their dedication. I didn’t know what I was getting into. All I knew was that I wanted to give them the best darn photo their family ever had of them. These kids have pretty dramatic situations and can easily be labeled, but my hopes and goals were to show the world these kids in a new light …. all in their fun youthful and spirited glory. I can’t wait to share a few images soon.
