Who are 4KIDS of South Florida?

Often we think of orphans as children who live in third world countries, those whose images we see on television or in the newspaper. But they’re not just around the globe, they’re also right here in our own backyard. On any given day in South Florida, there are three to four thousand “temporary orphans” in foster care.
Imagine how children must feel when they’re removed from their homes, often with nothing more than the clothes on their back and a garbage bag filled with whatever they were able to quickly pack. These children are created in the image of God and deserve to be treated with dignity and showered with love. So whether it’s a child who is a victim of abuse or neglect, a teenager rejected by his family, or a young girl who is pregnant and alone, from the moment they come into our care, we provide support, encouragement, and direction.

4KIDS of South Florida recently had a charity fund raiser "BiG Cardio Class and 5K".  This was a fantastically successful event attended by over 800 people! There was a 5K run, BiG Cardio Workout hosted by Joyce Feldman, Boot Camp workout by Trent Gamble, Kid Fit class with Brian Fuery, tug-of-war, hip hop street dancers, Eric McDuffie sharing his insight into health and fitness, Atemi-Ryu Martial Arts demonstration, Ramp 48+ skateboarding, Florida Panthers street hockey, bounce houses and face painting for the kids and much, much more!

Admired By Beckstead Photography Contest Winner! Wedding Photographers South Florida - Copeland Photography

Wow! What a week! So much goodness for us here at Copeland Photography. World renown photographer, David Beckstead has competitions for wedding photographers. We are humbled to be selected as the most recent winner. Here is what David said about our image:

“The square compositional format really works with this image. All lines including the painting lines and horizon line point to the couple in the middle, supporting a center/subject composition: breaking the Rule of Thirds successfully. I enjoy the repetitive squares of the painting and overall format. The toning works well to enhance the mood of this photographic art. I am drawn in by the believable passionate kiss and body positioning which works well with the flow of the composition. Great use of negative space giving the viewer’s eye a place to rest on the top right and giving the couple a place to ‘pop’ from the background.    

Love this shot!!”

Much, much thanks for the recognition David. P.S. Thank you Mike and Gisela for the spectacular dancing and wonderful wedding!
