I told you about this family at the end of March –

In October of 2009 I photographed Carl & Pam’s wedding – a BEAUTIFUL wedding with an amazing couple! In October of 2010 they were blessed with a baby girl – Piper! At almost a month old – Piper was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. She is doing remarkably well and has a wonderful support system! On May 21st – Pam and Carl will be participating in a CF walk with Piper’s Posse! You can read more about Piper’s story – here!

I would love to be there for Pam & Carl and their sweet baby girl – but since I cannot – I will be donating 10% of my revenue for the month of April to Piper’s Posse!

PLEASE click on the link above and give what you can to help find a cure! I also encourage you to check out Confessions of a CF Husband. When Pam first asked me to pray for Piper and her tests – I directed her to this website – which helped me understand CF. I don’t know how I came upon his blog – but have been following their story since their little girl was born!

THANKS TO MY APRIL CLIENTS – I was able to give $161 to Piper’s Posse!!!
