to be young again…time for prom
its that time of year….prom season!
mission focused had the blessing of helping shoot 2 proms back to back.
mission focused teamed up the photographers at eastlake church, where they were hosting a prom for students from all over san diego. despite the lites, limos, red carpet & paparazzi…this was no ordinary prom. it may look just like any other prom in san diego county, but the students were far from ordinary. this was a prom for students with special needs. a chance for them to feel like any other student going to the prom on a friday nite…beautiful dresses, tuxedos, corsage and boutonnieres, even if its just for a few hours.
it was a truly extraordinary evening, where i think those helping serve these special guests were being blessed as much as the students.
24 hours later the students of the rock academy boarded the newport hornblower for their prom, cruising around san diego harbor as they danced the evening away. the rock academy students had no idea what had happened the evening before at eastlake church, but i believe if they could, many would have changed places with the eastlake prom students…just to have the opportunity to have fun without the worries of the world to think about…
