Casting Call!!

A few months ago, I was posting on the Fort Worth Camera Facebook Page inquiring about a D90. Below my post was a photographer inquiring about trade in deals for a non-profit organization; Compassion Photography.

I love looking at the creative work of photographers... so, of course, I clicked her name to find out more information.

Boy I am glad I did!!Compassion Photography is a wonderful ministry here in DFW.

They professionally photograph families who are struggling with the illness of a child/children at no cost to the families.

Currently, they are working directly with Cook Childrens Medical Center and their child life specialists.

However, in the last few months, Mia, the founder, has decided to open a sister company to help fund Compassion. She will be launching this sister company on April 1. So mark your calendars and LIKE her Compassion Facebook page for details. I know a little bit about the "details" and it's going to be FANTASTIC!!

The purpose is truly inspiring. Only Prettier proudly donates products to this ministry. Proceeds of each purchase goes to funding things I make for them. It's important for a child to feel important; To feel pretty/ handsome when they are sick. It's important for the families to see their child as a "normal" child for the brief time Mia is taking their photos. It warms my heart knowing I can help.

Here are some of the wonderful photos Mia has captured...

Only Prettier is also excited to be working with Compassion Photography on a Casting Call for a commercial shoot. Who wouldn't be, right?

We are looking for five girls in the DFW area between ages 6-11. Please visit the links posted above for details.
