Help me help Wrenn + FREE photo sessions!

“Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”

— John Wesley

I’m totally in awe with the overwhelming response since sharing photos of Wrenn earlier this week. As her family awaits the final medical approvals and decisions to be made many of their friends and family have come together to help Jason & Nicole. After meeting Wrenn I knew she was fighting a rare genetic condition. And I knew she was special. But after doing a little reading I began to learn a bit more about the surfactant protein deficiency she has been diagnosed with and realize just how much she’s up against. The disorder she has been diagnosed with happens in only one out of every million babies. After learning of another little one who underwent a similar procedure it’s my understanding she’s one of only about 50 or so babies who’ll undergo a lung transplant in the last 15 years.

Now of course we’ll have to trust in the powers above and the team of amazing doctors to see Wrenn through these challenges. Though the Parris family does have insurance to help this undoubtably will have a huge impact on their family as they now will have to uproot and move to St. Louis to care for Wrenn throughout all the medical help she will need. I can’t even begin to imagine how challenging it is to think of how much their little girl has already been through and is about to go through but to add in having to move and juggling the financial strain this is likely to put on their family is more than overwhelming.

But TOGETHER we CAN help the Parris family.

Yes, I say together. I recall at the end of last quarter I offered up free photo sessions to help out Relay for Life, a cause very important to me. Together we raised over $600. Yes, I say together because once again I’m willing to step up and help this amazing little girl. I suppose today is also a day I think of the little ones I’ve lost and I’d give the world if I could have done anything to save them. But I know I couldn’t. But together we can help the Parris family save their little girl. So once again, I’m giving away two FREE photo sessions if you guys help me help Wrenn!

Everyone likes “FREE” and I’ve been told so many of you like my photography – so here’s what I need you to do if you want a chance to win a free photo session with me.


  • Donate a minimum of $10 dollars and email me proof of your donation to amanda [at] – to do this either take a screenshot of the confirmation page or proof of payment. (If you choose to donate but aren’t interested in entering to win a photo session there’s no need to email me your confirmation.) Here’s an example of my confirmation:


  • When emailing me share with me your name, contact information and the ages and number of people of who you wish to be photographed so that I can get back in touch with you if you are chosen.
  • In just over a week, on May 28th, 2010 I will once again arise from my coursework and randomly pick 2 winners. The names of those who have helped me give will be put in a hat and I will let my two little blessings randomly help pick 2 winners. Entries for a FREE photo session will be accepted until 3pm on May 28th, 2010.

If you win you will receive:

  • A free photo session with me that will last 1-2 hours for you, your family, or someone you wish to give the session to.
  • The photo session will be valid through December 31, 2010.
  • You will receive all unedited and edited photos in HIGH DIGITAL RESOLUTION format. Yes, I said FREE. That means I earn NOTHING from giving.
  • You will be given permission to print and share online all digitial photos for personal use.

*By participating if you win you agree that photos may be used in my portfolio.
**You must be in the immediate Orlando area or willing to travel to Orlando if you win.
***The value of a custom photo session w/high resolution photos is $650.

So take a moment to help me give. Even if you’re not interested in my photography you can take a moment to donate to help Wrenn! If you don’t have it in yourself to give monetarily, then help me spread the word so that I can give…not just to Wrenn – but families who would value the memories I could capture for them.

Together we CAN help Wrenn!

P.S. If you’re not already a fan of my photography in facebook, go join: – this likely won’t be the last time I give this year and my fan page is a great way to stay updated!
