Milk & Cookie Mini Sessions to benefit the Virtua NICU | Virtua Foundation | New Jersey Mini Session Photos

Back in 2016, yes that was only a few days ago, but I decided that I wanted to take some time to think about my business, work on the website, blogging, continue my education and spend some quality time with my family. So I decided that I didn't want to work past Dec 4th, after the Santa Mini Sessions, so I could hit my goal. Well of course, I knew I would get bored and since it was close to the holidays, I knew everyone would already have their family photos done for their christmas cards. Instead, I thought about what I could do as a charity event or donate to a charity. Since I am photographing more newborns and children, I wanted to pick a charity that would benefit children. Ronald McDonald House? St. Jude? No, I wanted to do something local to support our local community. Then, I thought about when I had my son and how I had an amazing experience at Virtua in Voorhees. Even though I had a great experience and my son was healthy, I know that is not the case for everyone. So I thought, how can I benefit sick babies with Virtua? Well, that was easy. I decided to focus my charity event to benefit the NICU at Virtua. Not only is the hospital amazing, delivers the most babies in south jersey, but they also have the most advanced technology to support premature and sick newborns.

I got in contact with the marketing director and we talked about the mini session and how it would benefit the NICU. She thought it was an amazing idea!

We raised $500 for the NICU that day and it was soo much fun!!!! Seeing the kids smile and who doesn't love cookies? HAHA

Please enjoy some of our cuties who came to the studio and we capture their chocolate teeth and milk mustaches!!

I can't believe I have been photographing the Berger family for 1 year now!

Originally I decided that I wanted to stop working after December 4th so I could spend time with my family. Having so much time off made me think about doing something nice for my community and to benefit someone. Working with mom's and babies is my favorite part of my job so what better idea then to support a cause that deals with moms and babies?

I'll never forget. I received a phone call from Chrissy. Yes, Chrissy, I am going to talk about you  :) She had a little girl name Holly in the NICU at Virtua. She received my information from a volunteer organization call Preemie Prints. Since I had never received calls or requests from this organization, I said that I would do a session for free for her and her family myself. 

Meeting Chrissy and her husband were (and still are) so sweet and loving. I just saw a sparkle in Chrissy's eyes looking at her little girl. It touched my heart. I'll never forget that session! 

This gave me the idea to donate to Virtua's NICU. Not only is the hospital great but, you can't forget about the nurses. They are so sweet and helpful! Everytime I go to photograph a fresh 48 or volunteer with NILMDTS, they are so warm and compassionate. 

What better way then to use my talent of photographing amazing people and donate the proceeds to the NICU. Making life more comfortable for families is a great way to support during this tough time. 

Session fee is $99 and includes a 15 minute session with Milk & Cookies, 1 digital image and 1 digital card. Additional prints, products and digital images are available. 

If you would like to sponsor the event, please send me an email. There will be 2 levels of sponsoring.
