Photo Fundraiser: This Mother’s Day, support a mom with breast cancer

Liz prepares to string a bead on my labor necklace at my motherblessing last summer

Back in January, I wrote about my friend Liz, who was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has now completed her first round of chemo and is on to her second. She’s keeping folks posted on her blog,

It’s been so amazing to see how many people are coming out to support her, whether through food donations, meals, childcare or funds. Liz’s husband is self-employed, and, as a mom of three small children (plus a grown daughter), Liz is at home full time. The family doesn’t have health insurance, so every little bit of financial support helps.

Local photographer (and mom!) Jessica Wallach is donating her talents to support Liz by giving a portion of the proceeds for sitting fees booked through Mother’s Day to Liz. For complete details, see Jessica’s website, Portrait Playtime.

I am so grateful to Jessica and others who have been so generous with their time and resources. If you have been thinking about getting family, baby or birth photos taken, this is a great opportunity to help a mama out. Book your appointment  now for anytime during the year. Jessica has extended the deadline until Mother’s Day, May 8.
