Downtime is wonderful for many reasons (for obvious reasons), but I am super excited to be able to finally devote time to some projects I had been putting on the backburner over the past few months. Specifically, it’s so wonderful to finally blog about this wonderful event I photographed on the day before Halloween of 2010.
There is a wonderful family I have shot many times. The awesome mom of this family called on me to help out for a special event by capturing the moments with my lens they wouldn’t be able to. Meet Megan. This is my client’s neice. At 5 months old Megan was diagnosed with Hypotonia and Global Developmental Delay. You can read more about Megan here on her very own website. Better yet, you can DONATE on this page as well, which I strongly encourage you to do. The donations given help fund the research needed to find better treatment methods and a possible cure for Genetic Disorders such as the one Megan has.
Back in October, Megan’s wonderful and extremely amazing family organized a race in which all the proceeds would benefit the Miracle for Megan Foundation, an organization created by the family to raise awareness, increase research, and develop optimal treatment methods for people with Genetic Disorders.
It. Was. Amazing! They had an incredible turnout, it was a beautiful day…and everyone was in wonderful spirits for sweet Megan. There were kids (a costume contest and games galore ensued after the race was over) and grown-ups alike there supporting Megan and her family and a lot of money was raised!
Keep up with Megan on facebook on the Miracle for Megan Foundation Page here. She is quite a spirited and determined little girl!
Thanks so much Miceli family for including me in such a special event, and I hope you enjoy this extremely over due sneak peek of this incredible day!

Aunt Kate gets a heartfelt thanks from her brother, Megan’s dad, after the race. She worked so hard to make it happen!
Megan is pooped! 😉
The Miceli Family….beautiful people with big hearts.
