Lifestyle || Needtobreathe + One World Health / by Madeline Harper

Happy Monday, my friends! I realized that I haven't shared this shoot that was so near and dear to my heart. Better late than never, right? My family is deeply involved with an amazing organization that advocates for sustainable health care in developing nations: One World Health. They throw annual fundraisers in the beautiful Charleston, SC and partner with some amazing artists to raise awareness of this organization and bring in funds to sustain the ongoing work. One of the bands, Needtobreathe, has become outspoken advocates of this endeavor.

I had the chance to photograph their intimate concert for this cause back in March and am finally getting around to sharing the images with you [plus a few from a bigger concert the following evening with a ton of talented collaborators]. Can we all agree that the lead singer, Bear, has the greatest expressions? It's so different than my normal style of photography- all light and airy, a fun change of pace! I adore photographing concerts as well as being able to tell stories of organizations I deeply believe in. This night? Dream come true.
