We recently had the pleasure of hanging out with Tommy and his family for a fun little photo session that we gifted them as part of our Lady Bug Project where we offer a free portrait session to a child with a life threatening illness in the hopes of helping them have a little fun and be a little crazy while capturing those beautiful smiles.
A big thanks to the assistance of St. Baldrick's Foundation for hooking us up with this cool kid... his entire family was pretty fun too :) It was great watching Tommy and his older brother Joey hangin' out. You could really see the love between these two.
Tommy's entrance into the world on Christmas Day 2011 was the first of many miracles we, his parents, would soon witness in Tommy's life. At just 4 days old Tommy was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Tommy then spent the next 3 months of his life at Advocate Hope Children's Hospital where his days were filled with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, ventilators, towers of IV medications, tests, procedures, and MIRACLES. From day one, Tommy's strength and fighting spirit shone through every challenge that confronted him.
Do you know of a family or child who would benefit from a Lady Bug session? Let us know! And please feel free to share this awesome project and spread the word!
