I photographed some girls from local Des Moines high schools this week.
Most of these ladies are from Roosevelt, although there is one Dowling Catholic student in the mix.
The shoot was the concept of my daughter’s friend Rachel, who has helped me quite a bit with
make-up and styling in some of my shoots.

While I knew that all of these girls would be beautiful, I was more impressed with how composed, mature and kind they were.
What bright hope they represent for our future.

Easter Seals is another one of my favorite Central Iowa organizations.
My husband’s uncle was born with a disability (and a huge spirit) and spent most of his life involved with Easter Seals and Camp Sunnyside.

The Easter Seals Iowa Sunnyside Regatta brings business leaders across the metro to
Camp Sunnyside in Des Moines for a paddleboat race around Lake Cheerio.
It is such a treat to see how involved some of the participants are. Such fun sports and big hearts.

The Regatta is a fundraiser supporting children and adults with disabilities in our community.
Easter Seals Iowa provides exceptional services to ensure all people with disabilities or special needs,
and their families, have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

Super Cool.

If you have any interest in participating in the 2015 Regatta or donating to Easter Seals, please check out their website:
