Our Photo Shoot!

A couple of weeks ago, after posting Cortney's video, (You can view it HERE, I was contacted by a woman named Katie.She is the mother of 6 children and an incredible photographer.(5 boys +1 girl)  She had viewed the video and wondered if Cortney and Patty would want to do a bit of modeling. It was for a campaign that she and another person were advocating for, called, Changing the Face of Beauty. This other person, Steve, is the owner of a local floral shop in Beverly, IL, called Blossom Boys. He sells Fair Trade products and advertises using differently abled children and adults. Katie takes the photos and they advertise for not only Fair Trade, but to heighten awareness..... to get others to look past the disability and more at the person. Both Steve and Katie are amazing people, and both have a child with a disability. They are the most caring, generous people, who make you feel like you've known them your whole life. With this journey I've been on, God has sent me the most wonderful people to cross my path. I am blessed......truly.


Here are some of the pics from Saturday....


These two just make me smile.....


Here is all of us.  Katie is the one on the right and her cutie pie daughter is sitting on Patty's lap. 

I am so glad you have stuck with me these past few days! I know it's been pretty photo heavy around here and not much crafting.  I appreciate you taking this journey with me too.  Your support means a lot to me. 
I promise to be back tomorrow with something crafty!
