COVID 19 - Our Easter

With everything going on right now, I wanted to do something special for my clients. I am in a few photography groups on facebook. I found this trend going around and I wanted to try it! I purchased the Easter Bunny image from Etsy. I made one up to advertise online with an image of my daughter embedded into the frame. IT BLEW UP! I was actually surprised with how many people wanted one done! I charged $7.50 and did over 10 images! It was a "Virtual Easter Bunny Photo"


Gratitude Sessions: COVID-19

"University at Buffalo nursing student Michaela DiGiacomo was working a new job at sisters hospital in Buffalo New York when she was called upon to join the COVID-19 relief team. Since then she has been working tirelessly to help save lives of Western New Yorkers battling the virus. Michaela has always been one to help others and this pandemic has shown her true character and bravery. We are all incredibly proud of her and the work she does."

EASTER: ARTHURS

ARTHURS EASTER

The other day I had the opportunity to photograph two beautiful siblings. The family wanted updated photos and they took advantage of the Easter promotion I had going on. They came into the studio on a Friday night to get some photos with our Easter Set. The little boy was super calm, easy to photograph, and super cute! He smiled good and even helped get his sister to sit for some photos. He showed how great he is as a helper and big brother. The little girl was not so easy. She just wanted to play and run around. She did not want to smile or participate in the session. We were able to get some great photos of her by the end of the session. She just needed a little chocolate to get energized, happy, and excited! Sometimes patience works out for the best photographic outcomes. Many clients have said that I'm super laid back and patient with their children. Here are some photos from this great shoot!!


Sophia: A CF Story

Sophia, The Warrior

On November 15, 2016 the world welcomed this little warrior to the world. Sophia Claire Taylor was Born at 7 lbs 1 oz at 40 weeks. What should have been a perfectly "normal" birthing experience was anything but. After getting stuck in the birth canal, and an emergency C section, Sophia spent a few weeks in the NICU at Buffalos Childrens Hospital. Sophia proved herself to be quite a fighter, & that fight continues every day! Sophia has cystic fibrosis, a lifelong disease effecting the lungs, pancreas, digestive system and more.


There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe.


Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. Years ago the average life expectancy was at best, 12 years old. Today it is not unusual for a CFer to live into their 30s or more. Progress is being made daily, but CF is still taking young lives far too often.

 

 

To maintain as healthy & "normal" life as possible, Sophia has to take special enzymes with any food or drink, to help her pancreas function properly. She also has a machine, a vibrating vest, to help clear her lungs. She wears the vest daily for 30 minutes, mornings & evenings. She also has a nebulizer which forces a medicine directly into her lungs, to help keep her breathing easy for her. That is 10 minutes for each treatment.


Additionally, Sophia is in a gymnastics class for 2 year olds...the activity is especially important for anyone with CF, and vital to keeping the lungs clear & functioning properly. Sophia is fighting every day to beat this hideous disease, and she is the true definition of warrior! At 2 years old, Sophia is a very happy & energetic , beautiful little girl~ waiting to teach world a thing or two.

***You can donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by booking a Mommy & Me mini session with me! 50% of your session fee will be donated to the CF Foundation to help those who are fighting just like Sophia.***

Easter: Battista

Battista Easter

I met these wonderful kids last week for Easter photos. They were loud, energetic, and silly, but who isn't at that age? I knew ahead of time that the little boy was autistic. I had an idea it was going to be difficult to get participation out of him. He came in, took a bite of my fake carrot, took a couple laps around the studio, climbed on the couch and found a lot of distractions. I took photos of the little girl first, who was definitely not camera shy. She did a fabulous job and the photos came out great! The little boy was calm, watching a video on his mom's phone. We tried getting him to sit for some photos, he was not having it. I thought, well maybe if we turned what he was watching on his moms phone on the screen he would sit still. It worked for the most part. The only problem was that he was not looking at the camera, he was tuned in on the screen watching Paw Patrol. It was okay though... He was still, he was calm, and I was still able to grab a couple shots of him smiling. Check them out...

 


Mommy & Me CF Foundations

Mommy & Me Mini Sessions

In Studio

This year, we are doing in studio mommy & me mini sessions. They are 30 minutes long and we promise to get you some beautiful photographs. May is also Cystic Fibrosis Awareness month. We have decided that we would like to donate 50% of the session fee to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our goal is to reach $500 to donate to the foundation, which means we need at least 10-11 shoots. We have also been in touch with a family with a little girl who has CF. She will be getting a discounted session, and she has allowed us to visit her home to capture a "Day in the Life" of how they handle living with CF. They have agreed to let us tell their story. I am excited, and blessed to be able to work with them and we will be posting and sharing this to spread awareness.

 

What is Cystic Fibrosis?

 

Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.

In people with CF, mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene cause the CFTR protein to become dysfunctional. When the protein is not working correctly, it’s unable to help move chloride -- a component of salt -- to the cell surface. Without the chloride to attract water to the cell surface, the mucus in various organs becomes thick and sticky.

In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps germs, like bacteria, leading to infections, inflammation, respiratory failure, and other complications. For this reason, minimizing contact with germs is a top concern for people with CF.
