Camp ReCreation

A couple of weekends ago (gosh time is flying by), I was asked to shoot for a wonderful organization, Camp ReCreation in Orange County. In all honesty, I was a little hesitant at first since I was coming off of a really busy week. But I’m SO glad that I decided to do it! It’s amazing to be able to give back by doing something that I truly love. Capturing the beginning of a special week in these people’s lives is such a good feeling. Seeing all the smiles and hearing all the laughter and fun made any sort of tiredness go away. I hope I get the opportunity to shoot with them again! Thanks to Meghan and Katie from Intertwined Events for inviting me and for helping to put on such and incredible week of camp!

 

These smiles just kill me! SO happy 🙂

 

Darth Vader showed up…no big deal 😉

 

Here’s RayRay leading everyone in a little cheer! …which I later figured out it was really “Danger” by Mystikal

 

Gotta love the uni-brow! 😉

 

Lots of love to these guys for giving back and making things happen!

Thank you so much girls! I had such an amazing time there! I hope I was able to capture just half of the joy that they all felt. I love how excited they all were to be there and to hear so many of them saying that it was their 5th, 7th or even 10th year there! AMAZING! 🙂

Rich, this is wonderful. You’ve captured the heart and spirit of all involved and also given the viewer a feeling of being there.
