Partners in Learning - Fashion Show

Partners In Learning serves as the Model Inclusive Center providing care to children six weeks through five years of age in Rowan County, and after school programs and summer enrichment program for children six years (school age) to age twelve. The Center is a Five Star Licensed, Nationally Accredited Program caring for more than 200 children six weeks through twelve years each year. Their organization serves children on-site at Partners in Learning, in childcare centers throughout the community, as well as in the children’s homes. Partners in Learning has established a priority to develop a comprehensive, community-based, family-centered system of care to meet the needs of children with disabilities and their families. The system is a delicate web of family caregivers, community resources, providers, private payers and public programs.

Partners in Learning is a 5 Star Rated Licensed childcare program providing care for infants through 12 years old in Rowan County. A 5 star rating is the highest license attainable. The North Carolina Star Rated License was established in 1999 to better define the quality of child care in the state and to assist parents in choosing child care. Only 14% of all child care centers in North Carolina hold a 5 star license. NAEYC Accreditation represents the mark of quality in early childhood education.

I was honored to be invited to be the event photographer for Partners in Learning's very 1st Fundraising Fashion Show.  The goal of this very special event was to raise scholarship funds for families in need.  This amazing group of people did such an incredible job making this event a huge success and raising over $7,000!  I am so happy to have met them all and thrilled to have been a part of this event for such a great cause.  Thank you for choosing me!  

I have lots of great images from our day but I can not go to bed until I share some images of our Fashion Stars!

and one more that has to be shared...
the dedicated ladies responsible for today!!!

Davidson Photographer for Children

This beautiful little girl is Olivia. I have had the pleasure of working with her family not only at our calendar shoots but I also did her brother's newborn session and maternity portraits before that.  It was so cute to see the way she stared at me the other night trying to make the connection of how she knew me. Once she did she kept hugging me as tight as could be and would not let go.  Definitely one of my absolute favorite favorite parts of our shoot!  Love you sweet peanut!!

Handsome Child Model for the UPsides of Down Syndrome Calendar - Charlotte NC

It was so great to see my buddy Nino return to model for the UPsides Calendar this year.  This is the same young man I mentioned in Marie-Claires post earlier today.  The two of them were inseparable but we still managed to get a couple of each of these cuties on their own.  LOL  Great job Handsome!!!

Adorable Baby Photographer

Another new addition to our UPsides Calendar!  Miss Karsyn is just about as cute as cute can be!  It was so hard not put down the camera so I could snuggle this sweet sweet baby girl! We are so glad Karsyn could join us!  I can not wait to get to see her again!!!
