Last Saturday I volunteered my time as a photographer to help out with Jubilee. What is this Jubilee, you ask? "Jubilee is a one-day celebration honoring members in our community who are in need with a day filled with fun, hope and encouragement. Through donations from churches, individuals, corporations and other organizations, Jubilee offers the blessings of food, merchandise and services all in a fun, festive atmosphere. It's all done in the name of Jesus and it's all FREE!" Check it out at www.jubileemn.org.
I met and photographed about 33 families and worked with some fantastic volunteers. It was a long day and a great learning experience - I worked with sets and props and I had to be creative with a limited amount of time and space. I walked away with over 700 shots, and a tremendous appreciation for all the people who regularly volunteer their time and energy to help others in need, not just one day of the year, but throughout their lives. I also had the honor of meeting lots of people from all walks of life who came to be blessed at this event.
Thank you Jubilee, and thank you Jesus, for a wonderful day!
Here is a collage of some of my favorite shots from the day.
