Aria Studios Helping Us Protect Children
Creative [kre’ativ]; adjective Relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, esp. in the production of an artistic work.
Jay+Jonas+Christine = Creativity
This is probably the best way to define the team from Aria Studios. We were first introduced to this gifted group of artists when they visited Thailand several years ago. They are a fun group of people who love to laugh and there was an instant connection as they shared many belly laughs with the ZOE family. In addition to sharing their fun, joyful hearts with us, they have also provided some breathtaking photography as they used their artistic talents to help children who are at risk.
Needless to say, the entire ZOE family was excited that Aria Studios was returning to Thailand again this past month. We had the privilege of hanging out with these truly incredible people for 10 days as they displayed their expertise with a camera. Christine has visited ZOE several times, most recently two years ago when she came with Kash. This time she came with another very gifted videographer, Jonas. Jay Kaneshige, owner of Aria Studios, not wanting to miss out on the fun, also joined us a few days later.
Once again they far exceeded our expectations and have provided us with some amazing photography that will enable us to tell powerful stories of rescue and restoration of the children in our care while allowing us to protect their identities and dignity. It is of primary importance to ZOE that our children remain safe and protected. Aria is helping do that by using their creativity to show images of our ZOE kids, without revealing their faces.
In the weeks and months to come you will be able to enjoy the talents of Aria Studios as we share their photos with you. Here is a sneak peek of some of their work!
