From the desk of: Amanda
A few weeks ago, I was surfing Facebook (big shocker, I know), and I came across Amanda Lipsey’s business page (Amanda Marie Photography). She’s another photographer here in Michigan, so I spent some time poking around out of curiosity. She had just posted a call out to all of her photographer friends and followers, asking for help with a super special project that she was working on. Naturally, I emailed her and asked her what Sean and I could do to help. This is the response I got:
“Brooklyn is battling cancer right now and she loves bubbles. So what i am trying to do is get a bunch of people around the world to take pictures of themselves or their children blowing bubbles for Brooklyn somewhere. Whether it be at their house, in front of a cool landmark on the beach etc. I am going to be doing a BIG blog post and including all the photos so please either water mark them or provide me with link to your fanpage or website. The concept behind this is the idea that each bubble is a prayer for Brooklyn to get better. I am hoping this will cause a flood of others to post their own bubble blowing photos on Brooklyn’s page and really help grow their page.”
Perfect! Sean and I have always been quick to help with any charity, especially those involving kids, so this was a no brainer. Combining photography and helping this little girl? We were in. It seemed like perfect timing, since we had a few family shoots already lined up. I picked up plenty of bubbles, and we had a TON of fun!
I think it would be super cool if everyone that reads this goes out, takes some of their OWN bubble photos and posts them to Brooklyn’s page. They don’t need to be professional, remember … each bubble is a prayer for Brooklyn, and anyone can send up a prayer or positive thought, so get out there and have some FUN. We sure did, check it out!
Here’s Genevieve Dimick chasing the bubbles that her Grandma was blowing:
