I’ve been atrocious at posting anything about my last trip to Haiti. Here’s a little glimpse of a portrait session I did for an orphanage that was in the heart of the mountain region of Montrouis. This wasn’t United Hearts Orphanage – the main orphanage I did photo projects for. This place was a new development that has just begun and who has been in partnership with UHO where they have been able to do a lot of building projects for them. They asked me to do portraits here as well in hopes to possibly begin a sponsorship program for these children as well in the near future. This area was so stunning to see. Even though only 8 kids are displayed here, I was blessed to do portraits for 22 others as well.
During this trip, I also got to do one of my absolute favorite things : give them all a print of themselves! We took a surprisingly good (and cheap) mobile tiny printer with us, some photo paper and extra ink. I spent about four hours slowly printing out copies for each of the children and an extra copy for their records. Watching the joy on faces when they are given a picture of themselves is invaluable.
