Out with the old, in with the new

This blog began in 2008 as a way for me to stay in touch with family back home while I was in school. Fast forward six years and it has become a record of my life and the people that have come through it, but the time has come to move on. So it is with much pleasure that I will be posting on my new blog at http://www.bpowersphotography.com/blog/ from now on. Please, come check it out, stay awhile, look around and say hi.

    You can see the full story HERE, and check out the video below.

Life Decisions

"It's not a choice I wanted for myself," said Lori Cole, 51 of Bowling Green.
30 years ago she walked into an abortion clinic and says she can still see and hear everything about the experience. A year into a new marriage, Cole was pressured into the decision by her then husband who said the child would put to much strain on the couples finances. Here she poses for a portrait at her home in May.

Opportunities for people with special needs drops severely after high school and the Greer's wanted to create an opportunity to extend those chances.
