I cannot believe it! I have been selected as one of 50 photographers to photograph 50 Beautiful Seniors. I could not be more overjoyed! I started photographing with Beauty Revived in 2014. The first campaign was the 50 Most Beautiful Adoptions. It was such a moving experience. To tell a story of one woman’s struggle with fertility and then the joy of her beautiful adoption story! It was then that I was totally hooked! I also participated in the 2015 and 2016 50 Most Beautiful Children Campaigns. I loved being able to share these stories of children overcoming so much and then giving back to the community in their own unique way!
Beauty Revived is such a wonderful organization! It is a movement that celebrates women and children with real beauty. Photographers donate sessions to these women and children and their stories are featured in their magazine and website: www.beautyrevived.com.
Hundreds of photographers applied to be a part of the Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Seniors campaign and I have the great honor of being chosen to find a deserving high school senior to photograph.
“I joined the Beauty Revived Campaign two years ago. I wanted to empower girls and show them the true meaning of beauty.”
Beauty Revived was started three ago as a way for photographers to use their lens for good and shine light on the real beauty that was happening in our communities. In the past few years, more 700 women, girls and children have been featured on their website and magazine.
“As a high school senior photographer, I started Beauty Revived because I saw the power that a photographer has in shaping perception and altering dialogue on beauty,” Michelle Gifford, Beauty Revived founder, said.
“The photographers who participate in our campaigns not only have great technical and artistic talent but also have big hearts and a desire to be more than just a picture taker. They want to be a photographer who changes the world with their work,” Gifford said.
I will be accepting nominations until October 1st and will then choose one to donate a full photography session to include hair and makeup. Plus lots of other goodies! There will be an opportunity to compete for a scholarship. The senior chosen will be an example of real beauty and will have shown their beauty by their service when weary, grace in defeat and kindness when tried.
“As a senior portrait photographer, I hope to tell the story of a deserving Class of 2018 senior through photos. I want my senior to know beauty is not only about appearance, but what is inside. Her heart and soul!”
