Every year I do a photoshoot for these two. If you follow my blog then you’ve virtually met Charlie and his sister Maya. Charlie is one of the cutest, fun-loving kids you will ever meet…and he has cystic fibrosis. Those afflicted with this terrible disease don’t have a life expectancy of over 40. Everyone is working hard to find a cure to this terrible disease. You can come out and help everyone at the Charlie’s Angel’s auction this summer. Usually the auction takes place in the spring, but Charlie’s aunt is battling cancer right now, so it has been moved to August. Pray for them all. To find more on Charlie’s story and the auction visit this SITE.
Isn’t Charlie’s shirt ADORABLE. I knew the minute I saw it, I needed it for the shoot. Little Luna Blue carries the brand, Scotch Shrunk, and gladly donated the shirt for the session. Thanks Anna!! Maya’s clothes are from my fav Matilda Jane, Crewcuts, and Wovenplay.
Senior Rep Shoot!
…so I decided to do a senior rep shoot at the lovely Kuhs farm this year. Well, that day and we lucked out with gorgeous temperatures but the wind was Gale Force…no joke. Blowing horses and carriages over…well it could have anyway. Holly Speakes did the hair/make-up for the girls. Needless to say, they were perfect!
Thank you Devyn, Kelsey, Kailyn, and Madeline. You were all amazing!!
…Support Habitat for Humanity…
Hello world! My beloved friends at Matilda Jane are doing their annual auction to benefit Habitat for Humanity. I’m having a wonderful time here in Seattle, but I wanted to stop by and let you know about this amazing auction. I myself have put a couple items in there. Big ticket items…like wedding photography ahem.. So go bid on it, and support a good cause and in the process get a wedding photographer! 100% of the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity. Travel expenses for me are not included in the package.
…Chic Retreat and a lovely young lady…
So I’ve arrived in Seattle for the first ever Chic Retreat of which I am 1 or 7 speakers. We literally chased the sunset on the way here. What a wonderful thing it was to be able to watch a sunset for 3 hours. A serious treat my friends and what an honor it is to be here surrounded by such wonderful talented ladies. Kelli France, Heidi Hope, Kara May, Jean Smith. Leah Remillet, Laura Winslow, Sarah Cornish I can’t wait to hang and get to know everyone, especially the 55 attendees. Of course I have to give a huge shout out to my amazing sponsors…the seriously rock, PhotoFlashDrive.com, Design Aglow, Finao, and Diversified Lab. Amazing company’s to partner with because they all are companies I use consistently.
Now Speaking of amazing ladies, let me introduce you to an amazing young lady. Stephanie…Senior Class of 2013. Good luck in your endeavors Stephanie, you’ll do amazing things!
…out on the farm…
I love photographing mid-west families, especially this little gem of a family with the neatest farm. So much scope for the imagination…
Kids this age are sporadic, temperamental, easily over-stimulated, and down right crazy…I wouldn’t change it one single bit. Makes my work so much more fun!
