Children of Faith Missions

In 2014, Terry was commissioned to photograph the Children of Faith Missions orphanage in India. She took with her 24 donated digital cameras and taught photography classes to over 30 children. It was a life-changing experience for Terry, and for the kids who fell in love with photography and immediately started capturing beautiful, insightful images.
