Several years ago, I was very excited to announce that Savvy Images joined the Magic Hour Foundation. This incredible foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides photography services to individuals and families who are battling cancer. I told you, incredible. It has gained popularity since originally joined their team, and now many
moons later, shortly after relocating back down to Texas, Savvy Images was finally matched with an amazing family to capture!
They were definitely worth the wait. When I was put in contact with Mona, I knew great things were going to happen. She was SUCH a sweetheart. We started brainstorming to plan her family’s photo session and even over the phone, her energy was contagious. Once we finally got a date nailed down, planning their session wasn’t difficult at all. She was open to my location suggestions and was very grateful for all the information I provided to help set their session up for success. After the long wait to work with The Magic Hour Foundation, I HAD to make sure it was awesome! ;-) We spontaneously narrowed the location down from two options we were considering, and it could not have worked out any better. It was great to find a photo spot IN Houston with so much character. The huge old tree made stunning photo prop/backdrop for us, as well as a super fun jungle gym for Mona’s handsome son…lol. Mona gave me a huge hug as soon as we finally met in person. The rest was sunshine and giggles! They were such a pleasant, loving and polite family to photograph. It was such a treat. Many hugs and many beautiful photographs later, Mona made it VERY clear just how grateful she was for everything I had done. Thanks to the Magic Hour Foundation, I was presented with the opportunity to give them a meaningful gift by capturing their beautiful family, but working with them was a huge gift to me also. My heart was incredibly full thanks to my Magic Family! Cancer sucks. And sometimes life can even suck. But when you meet and interact with folks who exude the kind of joy Mona and her family do, you quickly realize all the amazingness that surrounds you. As long as you open your arms to embrace it. ;-)
