A few weeks ago, I invited some of my VIP clients to join me in doing some good and also taking some sweet pictures.  I asked them to participate in a book drive with me.  There are two things near and dear to my heart: kids and literacy.  In my pre-photographer days, I worked in politics.  I often thought about what my platform would be if given the opportunity to really advocate for something.  It was an easy choice as I love to read and literacy is utterly fundamental to our success in life.  So, when I thought about how I wanted to make a difference right here in my own neighborhood, the answer came back to books.  But, I wanted to include others too.  I didn’t want to just buy a bunch of books and donate them to the library.  I wanted to come together others.  I created my “You are a Reader” mini sessions to (1) encourage children to share their favorite stories with me and (2) gather books for a children’s organization.  I am thrilled, overwhelmed, amazed at the response from my clients who filled every available time slot, invited their friends, and brought more books then required.  I am so pleased to deliver these books to Methodist Children’s Home in Redford, MI later this month.  I also know how valuable it is for children to share their reading and love of books with others.  It is a way to cement the importance of reading.  I hope that their love of reading is increased by sharing their favorite books with me.  I sure got a kick out of watching them find their favorite pages, tell me about their favorite characters, and share the delight of love of books.  I hope that they will look at these pictures and know that they are readers!
