The Cleveland Museum of Art is so beautiful to photograph in the spring. The trees are flowering and waiting for someone to have their portrait taken under blooms. Symonne was delighted to dance under their branches.
A few months back I had the opportunity to volunteer my photography services to an inspiring organization in Cleveland. Esperanza Threads is a small manufacturing group that designs 100% sustainable fabric products. While collaborating with Catholic Charities Migrant Refugee Services of Cleveland, volunteers train individuals to gain sewing skills and help them find employment. It was really special to photograph the volunteers and the migrants they train to help this non-profit.
Ursuline Sister Mary Eileen Boyle runs Esperanza Threads and she often goes to Northeast Ohio farmer’s markets to sell products they create. So as summer approaches, keep an eye out for the wonderful clothing designs that do good for the Cleveland community.
