Some wonderful people made a special day for kids who need to know how special they are. I was blessed to photograph the event.
Spa Day for foster kids was a day of manicures, special treats, and haircuts. These are kids who laugh and giggle, argue and worry, eat and eat and eat and play and cry. They ask a million questions and have moments of quiet that can seem so sad. And the ones at the party had no problems letting their beauty shine.
All of the pictures from the day are posted on my website, but here are some of the pictures of special moments that may seem ordinary to the rest of us and rare beauty that is there for those who choose to look past the stereotypes and fears of foster kids.
