Popowich Family
One Day

One day with one wonderful family.

Earlier this year I donated an all day documentary family session to Hope for Jems, silent auction event to raise money for therapy costs.

On November 9th, 2008, God blessed this world by giving it a precious gift named Jemma Helena Hope Kletke. At only two days old, Jemma needed medical attention and was sent to the Alberta Childrens Hospital. After many tests, they discovered a large blood clot in her brain. The blood clot not only severely damaged the right side of her brain, but it also caused her to have Diabetes Insipidus, Hydrocephalus, Cerebral Palsy, Seizures and it damaged her optic nerve which made her blind. Despite all the diagnoses doctors have given Jemma, she continues to defy the odds and prove that miracles do happen. (http://www.hopeforjems.com)

I could not have enjoyed my day more. Entirely unscripted and authentic. Click after the second image to see more.

    Brittany, so awesome. Seriously, you are incredibly talented and Shannon and I consider ourselves very lucky to have been the recipients of your donation. You captured our children’s personalities and we couldn’t be happier with the final product! Great work and we will certainly be passing your name along.

    There are so many levels of radness that it will take a 24hr-gaming-thon to try to reach them all. #epic #rad #winning #gangnamstylefamily
