Sabina lost her battle with a brain stem tumor on May 31st, 2007. She was eight. Ava Jane Gibson lost her battle with a heart defect on August 5, 2009. She was three. Before each of them left this world, I was lucky enough to meet them for a princess photo session. Since then, I’ve felt like it’s something I have to do for another deserving girl every year.
You know, sometimes it is hard to believe in Fairy Tales. There are times in life when we want nothing more than a magic wand and a little pixie dust to take us to a happy place! We know that there are some people that you would love to do that for too. Now, where do YOU come in? Let’s be honest; no one loves anything more than hearing the good, fabulous, things people have to say about them or their children. Whether it is that they have triumphed over troubled times, are fighting health issues or that they are just an amazing kid who deserves a little something special, people LOVE to know that other people feel that way about them. So, it is up to YOU to nominate!
I accept nominations from August 1st to August 31st every year, sessions take place in September and October. You can nominate a girl or sisters between the ages of 18months and 12 years old who has a medical, genetic, or social hardship.
