RFA/Haiti Fundraising Event in Newton, MA
I became involved in the RFA/Haiti organization in April of 2011. It has been a life changing experience for me. RFA/Haiti helps give lives back to young children who were former slaves working in the homes of families, not their own. They receive neither education, adequate food, shelter nor the love that all children deserve and need.
RFA/Haiti provides a loving home to 16 children, run by Pastor and Mme. LaFume, in Chantal, a small town outside Les Cayes in Haiti’s southern peninsula. Fund-raising is an ongoing effort as is monthly visits to Chantal to provide support to the children and their home parents.
We ran a wonderful fundraiser at ThePaintBar in Newton MA and helped raise $500 for the children of RFA.
Wonderful fundraiser last evening for Restavec Freedom Alliance. Thank you so much to all who attended. The owner Jill Schon and her artist daughter Jackie donated $500 in the form of a check to RFA. We had a fabulous time painting funky bottles with wonderful friends. ThePaintBar located in Newton, Ma offers a pleasant atmosphere for adults to let their “inner artist” come out and paint. I attended a birthday party in March there.When I heard The PaintBar was fundraiser friendly I instantly decided to set up an event for my my much loved organization , RFA/haiti. Ellen Donohue Graber, Director of the 501(c)3 organization is dedicated to providing relief for the Restavec children, children who are “given” to families and used as slaves in Haiti. Our mission is to offer a safe, stable, family centered environment for these children so that each child can receive the childhood they deserve – nothing like their life as a Restavec. Each child will have access to an education, medical support, loving care, psychiatric care, and adequate food, clean water and sanitary facilities. I just designed a poster and will be adding a slide show soon!
Congratulations 2012 Seniors!
I have created a Special Edition 2012 Video in honor of all the wonderful Seniors who posed for me over the last 12 months. Auvergne Studios thanks you for allowing me to capture your unique qualities in a Senior Class Picture. Portraiture in a creative and personal process which lasts for 1-2 hours. Post-processing after the shoot requires the ability to retouch without altering the basic contours in one’s face, eyes, and expression. I hope that you are satisfied with how I presented you in this video. May your Journey continue and soar to new Heights!!
Nancy Evans offers Senior Class Portraiture in all of Metro-west Boston including Dover, Sherborn, Wellesley, Natick, Medfied, Millis, Milford, Needham, Newton, Norfolk, Westwood, Cambridge, Waltham, Weston, Wayland, Sudbury, Framingham, Marlboro and Chestnut Hill.
There are instructions on my website’s senior page highlighting suggestions and clothing tips as you prepare for your portrait sitting. I schedule my appointments toward the end of the day, when the sun is lower in the sky. As the sun sets, the light offers a beautiful, rich and golden glow, with shadows and depth of color.
Solar Panel Aerials
In the past 12 months, I have been doing several aerials of solar panel installations around New England. While going to an installation site, with my coordinates plugged into the plane’s GPS you might think this is an easy maneuver. In actuality, there are more and more solar panel buildings being installed which is good news for companies like Beaumont Solar, located in New Bedford Massachusetts. I simply need to capture the buildings I am paid to fly over!
