Good Works: Angela's Baby Project

Michigan photographer Angela Carson, Cr.Photog., API, decided to challenge herself to do a creative project related to newborn babies, and began by photographing one newborn a week, pushing her creative boundaries with each new portrait session. When she began to realize the collected portraits would make a handsome book, her personal challenge became “Angela’s Baby Project.” She wasn’t looking to make money for herself with the project, so she partnered with Just for Kids, a Michigan-based charity dedicated to helping sick and handicapped children.

Carson chose Just for Kids because of its regional focus and lean operation. Just for Kids provides services ranging from support groups to care packages to family vacations. In Carson’s view, there was no better organization to link to her newborn baby project.
