The Hope Project is an organization that continues to amaze me time and time again. The founder David Trogdon is such an inspiration.
Their event Cookies with Santa was amazing. They had crafts for the kids to decorate. They had cookies galore.
As a Panama City photographer, I felt like it was just the perfect fit to donate my time to capture all the sweet faces of all the kids as they met Santa. The Hope Project hosted the perfect event to bring so much joy.
The Hope Project uses horses to help bring hope to our Heroes who may have been injured physically or emotionally.
Every single child got to meet Santa, sit on his lap and chat with him for a little while. The generous team at the Hope Project made sure all the kids got gifts, coloring books and plenty of love. I watched as all the kids left with a huge smile on their face.
After seeing Santa, the kids ventured outside to spend time with all the animals.
The horses, mini horses and goats we’re all dressed in their festive wear. From antlers to elf outfits, they were the most adorable things I have ever seen.
Maybella and Autumn had the best time seeing all the horses.
The Hope Project brought so much joy to so many families that have been so greatly affected by Hurricane Michael. They are such a wonderful group of people, and they deserve every bit of recognition for how caring and selfless they are. I am truly honored to know them.
