I am so excited to announce my Celebrating Motherhood: Mama & Me Petite Portrait Session charity event happening throughout the month of May and benefiting The CURED Foundation.
The CURED Foundation was founded by Ellyn and Fred Kodroff following their daughter’s diagnosis with an eosinophilic disease back in 2003. Since then the CURED Foundation has raised more than 4.5 million dollars for research and has built a framework to offer support and information to families, including mine, who find themselves suddenly navigating the road of dealing with a chronic, rare, eosinophilic gastro-intestinal disease (EGID).
While Mother’s day makes May the perfect month to celebrate motherhood, it also happens to be rare disease awareness month. Plus the eosinophilic awareness week always falls in May (May 19th-25th this year). I started dreaming up an event a year ago that could raise money and awareness for EGIDs while capturing and creating beautiful artwork showcasing mamas and their kids, and I am bursting with joy as it all comes together this year.
Your family is a work of art, and I am so incredibly honored to be able to capture and preserve special moments and memories with 30 minute petite sessions. This year celebrate motherhood and invest in a Mother’s Day gift that you’ll cherish for a life time. Your COMMEMORATIVE GIFT and my thank you for helping me raise money for the CURED Foundation is a beautiful portrait locket. Choose from either a necklace or key chain. Special event portrait packages will be available for purchase during your locket design and ordering session.
Plus every mama will receive a bag of specially curated gifts just for her thanks to our great swag bag sponsors who are committed to celebrating motherhood and supporting the CURED Foundation with their support for this month-long event! I’m so excited to partner with each of these businesses and their owners who are all also mothers.
