From the heart.

There are a lot of things that I believe in. I believe in love, miracles, God & being good to others. I believe that we have been put on this earth to help other people, to reach out to them & to help others in time of need. I believe in reaching out to others when they feel like they can’t take another step, I believe in giving to others & I believe that when we help others, that God smiles down on us.

Last week I received an email from a friend, telling me that one of her best friend’s daughters had just passed away. She was only 13 years old. I do not know this family who has just lost their child, but I felt saddened all the way down to my bones for this family. I cannot imagine the pain they must be going through. For this past week I have been thinking of ways that I can help this family because I feel so strongly that I should help someone who is in need…

To help this family, I have decided to donate a portion of the money I make for each family portrait session through the rest of the year to them. If you are interested in booking a session or donating money to this family, please contact me HERE.

I hope that as we approach the holiday season that we can remember to help others & to remember to give from your heart. Because after all, that’s why we are here on this earth. xoxo, marielle.

    You are such a beautiful person Marielle and I am sure God is smiling down on you! Thanks for this post!

  2. Marielle, I am so touched by your sweet heart! I feel that I am most happy when I am helping others and not worrying so much about myself and my needs! I am sorry to hear of the situation too. Not only will you be blessing this family, but you are instilling a blessing and a gift within yourself and within your family that you will never forget!
