A friend of mine from high school, Katie, is married with two kids. Her oldest son, Breven was diagnosed with Autism. It has been a struggle but Katie is an amazing mom & has done fantastic things for B. Each year she participates in a Walk for Autism. When she announced late last year she was doing the walk again in March of 2012 and asked about fundraising ideas I knew I could help. I offered my skills for Mini Sessions which all the money that was raised would go directly to them. I was really hoping to raise a bit more but we can't complain that I raised $300. Hopefully I can raise more for them next year!
After meeting with Katie & talking with her I realized that they haven't had family pictures taken since their youngest was a baby. That is seriously depressing! I know that it can be challenging to do the normal every day stuff for them & pictures are probably not their first priority but it became mine! After I finished the "Team Breven Mini Sessions" I invited Katie & her family to come up for some pictures. I was bound & determined to get a great family picture of them as well as some of just the kids alone. I was really happy with the outcome.

Their goal was $1,500 and now they are $1,700 so they made a new goal of $2,000! Help them reach their new goal of $2,000 before March 4th! Even $5 helps! In the meantime, check out a few teasers from their shoot!
