smile :: minnesota children's photography

This morning I woke up reluctantly, after a particularly rough night with the urchins. I was slow, groggy, and grumpy. But I was met with four beautiful smiles, one from each of my children, and one from my husband. I know some days I take it for granted, but I do realize how very lucky I am to have a healthy family, full of smiling faces. I truly believe that every child should have a smile they can be proud of, so during the month of October, I will be donating 10% of my profits to Operation Smile.

Here are some numbers:

In as little as 45 minutes, for as little as $240, a cleft lip surgery can change a child's life forever.

More than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity each year in Operation Smile’s 26 partner countries.

Over 6,000 volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists, and specialized health-care professionals work with Operation Smile to help these children.

Since 1982, more than 115,000 children and young adults have been treated by thousands of volunteers worldwide and thousands of healthcare professionals have been trained globally.

That's a lot of smiles.

Please join with me to help support this incredible organization. Recording the faces of children filled with hope and laughter is one of my greatest pleasures. This is why I believe so strongly in Operation Smile's work.

With the holidays right around the corner, October is a fantastic time to get some family photos, so contact me now to make an appointment.
