Before I go into my participation at the most recent March of Dimes event, here is a little snippet on the organization’s purpose. March of Dimes sponsors and hosts events that raise awareness and funds in support of premature births and infants. In addition, the organization provides information and support for families who are caring for premature infants.
At the May 5th March for Babies event hosted in downtown Jacksonville, I participated as the official event photographer. As such, I was required to obtain shots from a shot list along with candids and any groups or families that desired a group shot.
I took photos of set up, sponsor groups, the walk and spirit stations, the finish, the post-walk celebration and awards ceremony. I also took the opportunity to take photos of the various cityscapes offered throughout the route. After all, how many opportunities are there to take photos of downtown from the I-95 overpass? The picture below features the Main Street Bridge at about 6:30 am.
