I have come to the conclusion that charity is only charity when you give goods, services or money without personal gain, benefit or recognition of any kind. True charity is anonymous. It begins and ends within your self.
- Jim Pinto
I pretty much live by the above quote as best I can.
But as I get older and wiser (I hope), I've learned that life has many shades of gray. If there's a way my support can help bring about awareness to the brave people working hard to make a difference in the world, then occasionally I can justify caving a bit in my beliefs - this is the case with The Pablove Shutterbugs Program.
I learned about The Pablove Foundation because the founders are in my circle of friends. And when I found out about the Shutterbugs program, I of course, raised my hand to help (okay, maybe I even jumped up and down too). With the help of my Animal Print Shop team, we handled all the prints for the gallery show. We prepped all the files and donated the paper and printing of all the editions. It was truly an honor to help out and get up close and personal with the imagery these amazing kids created - I hope photography is making a difference in their lives as much as it has made a difference in mine.
More about The Pablove Foundation here. The Shutterbugs Gallery Show is coming up on May 14th in Los Angeles. A preview of the kids prints and more details about the show can be viewed here.

Meet Lucy. She has the most amazing eyes I've ever seen on a dog. I was super excited when I found out Victoria (her momma) and I would be in Palm Springs at the same time (we live in different cities), because I've been wanting to take her photo ever since I saw those blue eyes. I typically don't stalk people and beg to take their pup's photos, so a big thank-you to Victoria for indulging me!

It's been a while since I've posted to my poor, neglected blog - so why not share a peek of what's been keeping me away. The book is still several months out with a release date of November 1, 2011 (I'm still losing sleep and lacking time to shower while working feverishly to meet my deadline for this 192 page beast!), but the cover is done and ready to share. Hopefully I'll be able to post more peeks in the next few months, (including some of the beautiful lettering and illustrations Julianna Swaney is contributing to the book). So stay tuned!
