You may recognize or even have heard of the gorgeous little lady (pictured above) named Lucy Wallner. She is a warrior and one of the strongest people I know, and she is only 8 years old. And...after 2 1/2 years, she just finished her final round of Chemo!!! WOOT WOOT!
Her parents are working with HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital to revamp the "Healing Garden" on the 5th floor that is available to the children at St. John's. This is going to be an open air play area, where the children of St. John's and their families can go to get out of their hospital rooms and get some fresh air and have some fun.
FOR THE NEXT 48 HOURS ONLY
Any Fall 2019 Sessions that are booked, $50 of the Session Fee will be donated to HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital's
in honor of Lucy Wallner.
Yes that's right!!! All the donations from the next 48 hours, will go directly towards this project in Lucy's honor.
Now, ready to help make this special Garden Area really something spectacular? Click on the link below and book your fall session now, and help make this HEALING GARDEN area a reality for so many kids at HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital.

Yep- it's our thing, it may be strange, but we do it as a family and look forward to it ALL.YEAR.LONG!!!! What started out as a fun way to be creative for this stay at home mom, is really what led me to my dream job of being a photographer. After leaving my teaching job to be a stay at home mom, I really yearned for some creative outlet. I found it within photoshop and creating fun holiday and birthday cards for my children. This quickly led me to photography, where I fell in love with an art that has filled a side of myself with such joy and happiness- that I feel so incredibly thankful to have found! So, I thought it would be fun for those that may not have had the opportunity to see our holiday cards through the years to get a peek at the FUN we have had!
If you can't laugh at yourself- who can you laugh at?
