Congential Heart Walk Long Island 2011

Photography has not only helped me find an outlet that brings me joy, but it has also given me the ability to connect with some pretty amazing people trying to make a difference in the world.  Individuals that volunteer their own time to organize a walk/run to raise money and awareness for a cause. 

Samantha is one of those people.  I met Sam and her adorable son Dominick last year through a cause called The Littlest Hero Project.  (click here to see how cute he is!!)

She even chose me to photograph her sweet little nephew!!!  However, when she reached out to me to photograph an event she was coordinating with her friend Beatrice I was incredibly honored. 

(The Congenital Heart Walk is an exciting ongoing effort between the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) and Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF)! It is designed to provide hope for the millions of families forced to face the challenges caused by a congenital heart defect.)

Beatrice and Samantha created a team of volunteers that helped raise over $41,000 for this cause.  They are already planning next years event!! 

The entire day was a touching, humbling and an experience I will not forget. I cannot thank Beatrice for taking a chance on me to photograph the event and to Sam for even recommending me.  To learn more about the cause, please go to Congential Heart Walk.
