Sunday night in Portland Nat and I volunteered ourselves at a benefit event for one of her friends, Chelsia Rice, who has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Love Bomb, as it was named, was a really cool time with multiple bands, a live and a silent auction, and an appearance by the LoveBomb Go-Go marching band. We set up a photo booth and Nat made portraits of people all night while I skulked around getting candids of the party.
Later this week we will be making candids and portraits available for purchase online, with proceeds going to Chelsia, so watch for that on Facebook. It was pretty amazing and heartening to see how a couple of her friends put this all together and made it such a successful event.
A genius idea was setting up a laptop so that Chelsia could Skype with folks and watch what was going on since she was not able to attend.
Here is my beloved laughing her ass off after making a crazy portrait of some of her friends to end the night.
