Trying to make a difference....

I began photography not just for my love for picking up a camera and create something special I also did it because I love to make people happy. And what better way is there then capture a time of a persons life that is captured and cherished forever.
But I knew I wanted to do a little more.... I wanted to help more.
Then we moved and I became friends with the amazing Vanessa. I soon learned that she has lost her baby girl Ayden Rae due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum. I have heard about this condition before from my Friend Anya who has gone through it 3 times but didn't think it was this bad. I didn't think of it this way simply because I didn't knew that it exist. There are thousands of women all over the world that suffer from sickness, starvation and dehydration. That live in fear for themselves and their unborn children not knowing if they will survive or not. The feat if their only hope, the doctors and the insurance will believe them and give them the help they need!
Because there are so many women out there that go through all of this so bravely just to be able to hold their bundle of joy I will be giving these Families a Maternity session or a Newborn session for FREE!!

This is my way of giving back and show them that they have my support and I will spread the word so hopefully there will be a cure for this condition.
