I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the Second Annual EmpowerHer fundraising event at the Scituate Maritime Center. An excerpt from the empowerHer website defining their purpose is below:
empowerHER exists for young girls who have experienced the early loss of their mother. By creating enhanced experiences surrounding any event, the organization instills confidence and reduces isolation through a community of sisterhood that offers hope to each of the girls we serve.
empowerHER has set out to reach every girl that experienced the early loss of her mother in an effort to reduce isolation and promote positive growth during the grieving process. It is our greatest wish that one day no girl will have to face life as a child or adolescent without support. Through the experiences the embracing sisterhood of empowerHER will provide, inspiring feelings of hope and confidence will remain present throughout each girl’s life.
