Showcasing individuals/families through a collection of photographs & stories of triumph. Giving hope and inspiration to others.
On the path of becoming a professional photographer I realized what my why is, my passion, and purpose for taking photos. I want to showcase the beauty of people and the world all around us. I want to make a lasting impact through storytelling of people and the world.
I wanted to do something bigger than myself with photography. To give something greater back! After thinking and praying I decided to put together a collection of photographs with their inspiring stories that uplift and give hope to those reading. Telling the stories of individuals/families who have lived through very difficult, tragic, or horrific life events and how they got to the other side triumphantly and victorious. The book will showcase them through photography and written word. Giving hope, inspiration, and encouragement to others. The world and the current climate is so negative. People have no hope and are lost. Anxiety and depression seems to be at an all time high. Part of the reason is that they feel alone in their own journey or struggle. I want to change all of this one photo and one story at a time. Giving them proof that if others can make it and succeed so can they! Showing through photography the inward and outward beauty of all different people with different backgrounds and experiences. With some of the proceeds that come from the sell of the book I will donate back to a few organizations that directly make a difference related to the stories I will be sharing.
The book collection will include individuals who are cancer survivors, rags to riches stories, single mothers (or fathers), congenital heart defect babies/children, veterans, unlikely friends, sex trafficking survivors, domestic violence, and others similar stories. Someone who has been or seen the worst and came out the other side. Showcasing people from the north, south, east, and west of the Unites States! It will be a collection of about 24 different uplifting stories.
Once I get the photos and stories put together I will than get it published as soon as possible. My goal is a year. No longer than the end of 2017. This is why I came to Kickstarter. If I wait to work to save for the project it may never happen, or take years and years, due to the overall cost.
I know that with the help of Kickstarter supporters we can make a huge impact in the country and the world by inspiring and giving hope to others. I can give you a breakdown of what I believe my estimated costs will be. Thank you for taking the time to read!
