iheartfaces | Beautiful B&W

Probably not your typical entry for the theme, Beautiful Black and White, but it's what I've been doing for the past week - taking "Senior Pictures" for all 22 eighth graders in Samuel's "Graduating" class.  When you are in 8th grade, the term "beauty" certainly falls into a broad, sliding scale.  From baby duckling to fully emerged swan and, more awkwardly, the everything in between, my hope was to capture the beauty that God sees inside each of them.  I am so grateful for the guidance, instruction and nurturing that Samuel has received at our little school.  It has given him a strong foundation for his future.  The beauty that I see in his classmates has made this one of the most fulfilling volunteer assignments that I have done at the school so far.  My hope is that each student can see the beauty inside themselves as well.


  1. I really like this! The freckles and the braces are awesome. :)

  2. this photo is really amazing!
    and beautiful story too!

  3. That IS a beautiful picture (or "handsomeful"...hahaha). My oldest is leaving 5th grade this year. I am NOT ready for middle school days. Any advice on how to survive? I am totally relying on God to help us ALL through! :)

    Loved this post.
