I am happy to announce that I am officially a part of the Found Families Volunteer Organization!

Found Families is an organization that provides free family photography sessions, through a national network of volunteer photographers, to families that have recently adopted a child. Our goal is to help families mark and celebrate this milestone of adoption by making a professional photo session financially attainable.

Because every family deserves beautiful family photos.

In Remembrance of Mason Leon Ferguson

02/27/03 - 05/30/18

In January of 2018, I turned 25. A blessing that many people take for granted. Several years back, after my baby cousin was diagnosed with a brain tumor, I decided that I wanted to participate in the St. Baldrick's Foundation. That's right, I shaved my head for a great cause. My Cousin, Mason, made it to remission... but in 2018 his cancer came back. At the young age of 15, Mason had struggled with more pain, hospital visits and countless studies then any child should ever have to undergo. Instead of strictly donating to St. Baldrick's, I decided to support hundreds of other children as well as my own flesh and blood. All proceeds will be split between Mason, in hopes to help his family through this difficult time, as well as the St. Baldrick's Foundation so that I may help hundreds of other children and families that are struggling down the same road Mason did.

If every person that visited my site donated at least $1, we could possibly save thousands of babies, children, teenagers and young adults lives.

Let's make kicking cancer's ass an everyday occurrence, not just a miracle.
