‘Tis the Season of Giving…So please come give (and receive) with me while fighting Pediatric Cancer!

Come help me give a special gift to a deserving family

As a children’s portrait photographer, I feel so blessed to be able to work with children on a regular basis.  Whether it’s capturing a smile, coaxing a giggle, or preserving a beautiful moment for Mom and Dad to treasure for years to come…these are the things that give me a deep sense of joy and happiness in what I do.  But I also know that not all children are as blessed as the ones that I have met and photographed this year. That’s why as 2010 comes to a close, I’d like to give something to the children and families that need our love and support.

So please join me in the effort to help fight pediatric cancer, and in doing so, we will give a very special gift to a deserving family…

  • One in every 330 Americans develops cancer before the age of twenty.
  • The causes of most childhood cancers are unknown. At present, childhood cancer cannot be prevented.
  • Despite these facts, childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded.
