This year I was privileged to support Mission Year in their annual silent auction fundraiser by donating a one-hour KNP portrait session. The talented writer, teacher, Breakthrough Ministry Fellow and Mission Year alum, Ciera Smith, won the photo session. Ciera’s blog, Her Journey to Freedom, is a great showcase for her talent (check it out!). I was invigorated by her ideas of making professional, urban headshots in the city we both love and I think they came out wonderfully. It also helped that she was impervious to the frigid morning temperatures and photographs like an absolute goddess!
