When I started this photography business three years ago, I never once imagined it would allow me to meet such great people. I've got to say that the people that make up Angie's Hope are absolutely amazing, and that is a word I rarely use. It makes me proud to say that these people are a part of my community.
A lot of the events that I photograph are often supporting some cause. With small acts of kindness and big dreams, these people are raising awareness everyday for people with SMA and conditions alike. Last week, Veronica Adams Photography was asked to be a part of an event hosted by Angie’s Hope.
For those who don't know, SMA stands for Spinal Muscular Atrophy. I encourage all of you to take a look at Angie’s Hope website to learn more about what you can do to help. You will find an amazing story about love. I was brought to tears when I learned that this organization was started by two 9 or 10 year old friends. Friends! The heart of a girl to help another is how this got started. That my friends is a living act of 1 John 4:7.
In 2006, a second grader named Kyra wanted to help her friend, Angie, who has SMA. With the help of their families and community, they organized a garage sale and raised $9,400. Since then, they have raised over $200K. Please visit their site to get more information about who they are and I’m sure they would appreciate donations. Just last week, they had a “prom style” event at Meson Sabika in Naperville and VAP was blessed to be a part of it. The ladies all looked beautiful in their dresses and the guys were very dapper. We sponsored the backdrop area and it was so much fun. I love being able to witness these great young adults who, at such a young age, are already working to make a difference in this world. CURE SMA was another organization involved.
I am giving anyone who attended this event a $50 print credit if they book a session with us. We specialize in portraits for H.S. Seniors, Women, Families & Headshots. Right now we are also accepting applications for our Teen Model Program for Class of 2018 & 2019.
