Check out this little pumpkin! Operation Smile sent me the “after” pic of sweet Britany, a baby I met in Honduras while photographing their medical mission in March. She was just 9 months old then, and look at her now, a gorgeous SMILING one year old.

One that note, a HUGE thank you goes out to all of our clients who purchase “Smile Cards.” THIS is the result of your generosity. Operation Smile uses only $240 to repair a cleft lip like Britany’s (her cleft palate surgery will happen next year). Last year, our studio was able to donate $8500 to Operation Smile. How? Well, along with PPA Charities (Professional Photographers of America), we designate October as Family Portrait Month, and a portion from all sales from the month are donated to the charity. In addition to our year long sales of Smile Cards, it sure does add up!

So we are really looking forward to another amazing month of giving in October! And if you have already had your session and would still like to order Smile Cards (blank notecards with your favorite image from your session), please do! ALL money from the sale of the cards goes to help children like Britany.
