Fairyography announces the seventh annual Sabina Hartley-Burke and Ava Jane Gibson memorial princess sessions!
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.
2015’s winner was Lexi, who is living with severe cerebral palsy. http://www.fairyography.com/memorial-princess-sessions-meet-lexi/
2014’s double winners were Arden, who is living with mitochondrial disease: http://www.fairyography.com/memorial-princess-winner-1-meet-arden/ and Marianna, who is fighting Leukemia: http://www.fairyography.com/memorial-princess-winner-2-meet-marianna/

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 a family that has a little girl(s) between the ages of 18months and 12 years old.
Send me an email to email@example.com sharing why you think the person you are nominating should be THE ONE for this totally awesome package. What makes that little girl so special and why does she deserve to be treated like a queen? Include her parents’ or guardian’s contact information. I speak with each girl’s caretakers to talk about the event and what they can expect.
For the grand winner:
A $1900 value fairy tale package
This captivating collection begins at Elements Salon with your princess or fairy being treated to a hair and makeup styling (if she is old enough and safe around curling irons!) Then she is photographed at the Botanical Gardens. She will be able to wear one of our couture gowns along with any other accessories she chooses. These are casual sessions with no set time limit and you will be presented with 30-40 fully edited proofs to order from. Included in the winning package is a 16×20 wall art piece with a matching digital image, a trio stunning mini accordion albums, and an 8×8 leather bound 20 page storybook. The contents of this collection are not a limit; you may choose to purchase further prints at VIP print prices.
Chosen ladies who aren’t the grand winner will be offered a photo session and a $200 print credit.
Deadline for nominations: August 31st, 2016. A winner and runners up will be chosen by September 6th, 2016. Photo sessions will be scheduled for September. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form below. Please forward this to everyone you can think of in case they know a deserving girl too!
Each family who qualifies is offered a session and a print credit. I’d like to offer larger print credits for these families or even entire packages with albums in the future. Your donation helps to sponsor these families to receive photos they treasure.
