For the love of Noah.... "Calendar For A Cure"

Vicki asked me to be "Miss December" :)

Here's a little tidbit about ordering from shoedazzle.com .....when the reviews tell you to size up... don't be vain, SIZE UP!

This photo shoot was a very special photo shoot.  I had the awesome opportunity to help a friend, Vicki, with her "Calendar For A Cure."  (You can call me "Miss December!")  This calendar is one of the MANY things Vicki is doing to raise money to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.... along with photography sessions, bike runs, benefit BBQs, etc.  You see, Vicki has this PRECIOUS nephew--Noah, who has cystic fibrosis.   Something I have learned since following Noah's cause is that cystic fibrosis is a genetic spectrum disease that causes major problems with the respiratory system.  Most kids on the more serious end of the spectrum are lucky to live to age 18.  That is why finding a cure is so urgent and important.  Vicki, having no prior photography training, pretty much up and created a photography business with the proceeds going to Noah's Great Strides Team.  She is an incredibly creative photographer and is eager to get shots that are pleasing to her client, whether it be a wedding session, newborn session, engagement session--you name it.  There is no doubt that the success of her business has been an answered prayer.  You can follow her progress on her blog "Finding Myself in the Middle", or learn more about "Calendar For A Cure" by clicking the links.  If you would like to donate or learn more about the cause, you can contact her at Victoria Grace Photography.  

This is Noah :) A three-year-old who loves Buzz Lightyear and loves to laugh.
