Families Together Photoshoot (What Keeps Families Together?)
I'm So Newark hosted a photo-shoot / discussion centered around the theme of Keeping Families Together. The discussion started with our guest Awopeju Okunlade who shared on the concept of nurturing, roles and belief systems in the family.
Then we went around the room and allowed family members to share if they liked. We were all moved by one of the younger family members who shared that, love is the KEY to keeping a family together. The discussion lasted about 20 minutes. Following was a network session and photo-shoot by photographers Jaz Nicole, Ron Scott, Matt DV, and Abdul Rahim who captured images of the event.
I'm So Newark's founder, Matt DV expressed how important a role, family photos can play in our family. They can sometimes be the sole connection of relatives, and very important in depicting , past and present love and stories of FAMILY. He mentioned how sometimes we can unintentionally leave loved ones out of photos and maybe we should be mindful of this for sake of family.
Thanks to Express Newark's Shine Portrait Studio for allowing us this beautiful artist shared space.
