YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – Maggie Rudisill believes it’s important to get a special moment when she’s taking pictures for a new project she’s started.
Armed with a Cannon 5D Mark II camera and a social media account, she’s trying to prove there is more than meets the eye.
Her project started shortly after a friend, 27-year-old Dominique Boyer, was fatally shot in May 2014 near East Chestnut and North Cherry streets in Lancaster.
“It really got to me and it was something that I was really emotional about,” Rudisill told ABC 27 News. “I kept thinking what can I do?”
“You don’t think of them as giving their kids kisses and playing with them and seeing the softer side of them,” Rudisill said.
“I think it’s nice to see the flip side of things,” she said.
Rudisill said she’s taken the pictures in York, Lebanon, and Lancaster. Instead of charging for the pictures, she asks families to donate to the Boys and Girls Club as a way to pay it forward.
