The last two weeks have been such a blessing! Poppy invited Art & Soul Photography to be apart of their Paint the Town Purple Window Decorating Contest benefiting Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. I’ve really enjoyed the partnership! Lili Johnstone, the creative genius behind Poppy’s amazing windows and merchandising, had a great idea to incorporate portraits of cancer survivors into their Paint the Town Purple window theme. I jumped at the idea to be involved and donate my time in memory of and to honor several loved ones and friends that have lost their battle with cancer. I also want to recognize and thank my lab, Miller’s Professional Imaging and MPix.com for donating the 16×20 prints for display in Poppy’s windows from May 3-7th.
I photographed female survivors wearing purple merchandise from Poppy that will be entered into a silent auction benefiting Relay For Life. What an honor it has been! From Josephine’s infectious laughter and joy to Jenny’s creative spirit and energy to Kathy’s refreshing attitude and love for life…I enjoyed meeting each of these 6 women and capturing their beauty – their essence – their joy. You spread hope.
To join Art & Soul Photography, Inc. in celebrating life and contributing to the American Cancer Society, visit Poppy during the week of May 3rd thru the 7th. The portraits of each of these amazing women will be displayed next to the jewelry that each of them modeled during their portrait session. You are encouraged to participate in the silent auction including earrings, necklaces, rings, purses, and scarves. There will be a reception on May 7th from 6-8pm in which the winners of the silent auction will be announced. There will be birthday cake and punch provided as well. All the proceeds will be donated to Relay For Life.
