Soaring with Wings


As some of you know, I’ve enjoyed photographing a wonderful after-school program, Wings, over the years. A fun and rewarding way to give back to an organization that does a great job helping kids develop their social and emotional skills. Kids and photography? Bliss!

Here are some portraits from the day.

The Wings Creed rings true for adults as well as kids…

The WINGS Creed

I soar with WINGS. Let me tell you why.
I learn lots of skills that help me reach the sky.

I love and accept who I am on the inside
and know my emotions are nothing to hide

Life’s full of surprises that make me feel different ways.
If I can control myself, I will have much better days.

I understand the choices I make should be what’s best for me to do,
and what happens is on me and not any of you.

I understand others are unique. I want to learn more about everyone I meet.
I want to step into their shoes and see what they are going through.

I am a friend. I support and trust. Working together is a must.

Kind and caring I will be. I listen to you. You listen to me.

I soar with WINGS. I just told you why.
All of these things are why I fly high.
