2011 BFC BackPack Ministries

This officially begins what I have entitled the "blog dump" which will proceed over the next few posts. This is not a bad thing, I assure you. You see, I am diligently working on so many photo projects right now (today I am sorting through all my Peruvian adventure photos) and will live up to my promise from my "Gloriousness to Come" post from back in June (which I am to day just over half way through sharing all that was promised.) But in the meantime there are more and more finished projects collecting on my hard drive, waiting for their time in the light, that I feel I just have to share (before they totally lose their relevance). If you go to my church or are friends with me on facebook you have already seen a few of these and thanks so much for your support offline and all the facebook "love".

The first project is Bible Fellowship Church's 2011 BackPack Ministry. You may remember the project from last year that I posted here on my blog (check it out by clicking here.) This year the project looked a little a bit different. I still was excited to organize it with my lovely cousin Bianca ('sup, B?), and BFC's College and Career Small Group but we actually took the supplies the church collected into a community this time and helped over 120 kids fill their backpacks just two days before the start of school.

Below you can check out the movie I put together to share with the church...

On August 20th a handful of helpers from Bible Fellowship Church in Sebring, FL showed up at a local community with enough backpacks, school supplies and sno cones for over 120 happy kids. Thank you to everyone who contributed supplies, donations, time and love to the project.

About Caroline

I decided my destiny was to be an artist at age five when I won an honorable mention in a art competition in kindergarten. Ever since then I have been following a dream that has manifested itself in a variety of rewarding and delightful ways. I have practiced in the field of graphic design for over 8 years and recently acquired my Masters in Graphic Design at NC State University in Raleigh, NC (check out my design portfolio by clicking here if you like). But a passion that has stuck with me ever since I got my hands on my first Nikon camera in my undergraduate art education at Florida State University is photography. The instruction I received there was but a seed in what would develop over the next years of my life. Recently I have begun photographing people in their celebrations of life and could not feel any more blessed to be a part of capturing those memories.

About This Blog

A great american writer once wrote, "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day." EB White penned the thoughts of my own heart. One part of me is a graphic designer working to challenge the world, seeking out problems and striving to create avenues for change. The other part is seeking out the beauties of the world and working to capture them in our memories forever through photography. This is what you will find here. Me enjoying the world. I have been truly fortunate to photograph such incredible people at truly beautiful moments in life. I can only hope that the images I've collected will forever keep alive those thoughts and emotions that swelled in their hearts and minds that day.
