The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?

Meet Cadence – this beautiful girl stole my heart.  When I first sit down with someone, my goal is to always get to know them.  Yes, it’s a quick visit – but my hope is that they will share a little piece of their heart with me. Cadence was very honest and shared the following with me. “I have a medical condition, narcolepsy w/ catalepsy.  Any emotions trigger an episode.  I’ve learned how to stop feeling emotions.”

What word did you choose and why?


As I have gotten older, and with medication, it has gotten better.  I want to see if I can let down some walls to start feeling emotions again.  I want to have a relationship.  I want to experience life.  I don’t have a LOT of friendships because I keep distant from others.  I don’t want to tell people that I have this condition because I don’t want to be seen as someone with a disability.

Thoughts from her Step – Mom, Amanda

Amanda (her step mom) chose a word for her.  A word that she wants Cadence to embrace. Grace.  “I want the biblical definition of Grace for her- to be covered by Gods love.  I want her to have grace for other people so she can build stronger relationships with others. I want her to experience life and all that it holds for her.”




The BE Project with Beautiful Evolutions Photography

The BE Project was created in 2016.  Two crazy girls had an idea and it came to life on a napkin at lunch one day. They partnered with a local jeweler, Woolards Custom Jewelry and a beautiful necklace was created.  What began as a marketing campaign turned in to an annual photo project that has allowed people to share a word that is important to them and why that word guides them.  Each year, in January, the project opens back up for registrations.  One week is dedicated to photographing the incredible people that want to join us.  All images are black and white to keep from any distractions.  Just the human and their word.

Head over to THE BE Project page read some of the incredible stories that have been shared with us.
