As a mother, my heart hurts for families who have angel babies (those who passed far too soon) and for little, beautiful babies who deal with terminal illnesses or diseases. It’s a challenge to spend more days in a hospital than in a peaceful, happy home … and, for these families, we know it’s tough to prioritize spending money on a professional photo shoot. So, I decided that we will give away free photo shoots to local families who absolutely deserve to spend an hour capturing beautiful and happy moments together with a professional photo shoot.
It’s no secret - photographing children is a bit challenging. Sometimes the camera is scary, sometimes other things are far more interesting than the camera … like a piece of grass or a noise somewhere off in the distance (kids are funny!) but that just means we give extra time for a photo shoot, take breaks as needed and are very go-with-the-flow about how the photo shoot progresses. The photo shoot can take place at a home, at the hospital (if the hospital permits photos), at the beach, at a park … we stay flexible. We know the Florida weather is a bit relentless so we are flexible to the baby’s needs so they stay comfortable and happy during the shoot.
You can submit your information for a photo shoot on Girona Consulting's website atwww.GironaConsulting.us — or you can also pass this information along to a local family who deserves a beautiful family portrait.
We are SO excited that our Happy Baby Photography Project has begun!!
The photos below are of our photo shoot on Mother’s Day with a local family whose beautiful little girl was born with Gastroschisis, a condition in which she was born with her intestines on the outside of her body. This rare birth defect happens in about one in 5,000 births according to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. After many surgeries, the this family is happy to report that their daughter is doing well (all things considered).
