Silly Smiles 2009

It's that time of year again!!

Spring is around the corner and with a great new season comes a wonderful time to reflect on our families and those around us. It is also a great time to give back to people in need. As a special fundraiser, my studio has joined forces with many studios around the country to make a difference for families in need.
On March 7th, 2009, studios around the country will be holding a “Silly Smiles” event. Each year thousands of children around the world are diagnosed with the kidney disease FSGS and Nephrotic Syndrome. If untreated, it can lead to kidney failure. This disease can require staggering amounts of medical treatment with equally staggering medical bills. Each year numerous people of all ages are diagnosed with the same medical condition yet there is so much more to learn including the discovery of a cure. Not being a physician I am at a complete loss of vocabulary or technical knowledge to describe the effects of this disease so I would strongly encourage each of you to visit the following website:

Know that as a community, we can do more. On March 7th we are happy to provide an opportunity for change. Between 10am and 3pm, each family in attendance will be given a 15-minute “Silly Smiles” session. The session is simple, make funny faces at the camera and let us do the rest! We are asking for a minimum donation of $40 for those who attend. For your minimum donation, you will receive a special 8x10 print with 9 of these one of a kind “Silly Smiles.” We will also have special discounts available on additional special event products. 100% of your $40 donation will go to cause. In addition 25% price of all orders will be donated.

Don’t wait, space it limited! Please contact me asap at or 630.253.2939 to reserve your time slot today. Your session will take place at Indigo Photographic, located at 117 S. Batavia Avenue, Batavia, IL 60510. Together we can make a difference and have a blast doing it!
