Forsaken Generation’s Holiday of Hope

‘Tis the season for giving and Forsaken Generation has committed to feeding and loving the homeless children of Jacksonville through events like “Holiday of Hope”. It was such an honor and blessing to be asked to photograph this amazing event. The whole family got involved. I took pictures while Brian, Rachel, and Heather loved on the kids and helped them pick out Christmas toys.

This time of year, when we are bombarded with advertisements of the latest greatest thing we need to have to keep up with the neighbors. Sometimes, we need a remind of how blessed we are to have a warm place to lay our head at the end of the day. Thank you Forsaken Generation for all that you do!

What a cool event Thomas. I love seeing photographer giving back in whatever way we can.

You’re also just about the only photographer I know that can go right from photographing a smiling child to photographing a pan of chicken wings without skipping a beat.
