More from the Malibu ranch fundraiser!

Sharing another family from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fundraiser. Three kids, three unique and engaging personalities. One solid and (fun)loving family. Had to document middle brother’s cast, love the color accent, so much cooler than the boring white tape I had for my broken arm as a kid!

And extra cool? I didn’t have to chase them down to get the photos as I usually do with the little ones! I could really get used to this older kid cooperation gig!


Last spring my friend Jen Wilson decided to get fit and raise funds for charity at the same time. The very cool program she chose through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society involves meeting a fundraising goal AND competing in a Triathalon. I’m one of her photographer friends, along with Katie Davies and Desiree Durang, drafted to help with her brilliant fundraising idea.

Eight families donated directly to the L & L Society and, as a “thank you”, were invited to a four photographer minisession event. The families got to take advantage of a fully tax deductible donation, an afternoon in the fresh country air and a sweet collection of family photos from four different perspectives!

For me, a total personal win-win. I got to give back a little, meet the adorable kidlets from eight fabulous families, hangout with three fun (and so talented!) photographers and enjoy a gorgeous day at an incredibly beautiful private ranch in Agoura. And the best part? Jen did all the Triathlalon training and I avoided the blisters! ; ) OK, maybe that wasn’t “quite” the best part.

The best part for real? The fun (and beautiful)people I’ll be sharing here!
