As I reflect on 2017, I smile at the thought of some of my greatest wins. At first, I was thinking in terms of the "best of" or favorite images shot this year. And there is certainly a place for that. But the more I thought about it, my bigger "win" this year is the opportunity to increase my giving and to partner with my clients to make a difference in our community. Being a small business, my numbers aren't huge....but they are bigger than last year. I am pleased to report that well over $3,500 was given to charity. The most popular charity with my clients is by far Sheltering Wings. Together, we were able to donate $650.00 to that ministry. We also gave $790.00 to homeless shelters and men's ministries (Wheeler Mission and Saul to Paul). We also gave to support the hungry through Midwest Food Bank as well as to Animal Shelters, Hurricane Relief, Christian missions abroad, and to our own local Hendricks County Community Foundation. So I must thank each of my 2017 clients for choosing Photography by Sarah Crail and for being a part of #givingback. I couldn't do it without you! With that as the backdrop, please enjoy some of these favorites of my beautiful 2017 partners and clients!
