On May 10, 2022, St. Louis photographer, the Frotographer had the opportunity to team up with a few local vendors and the Make-A-Wish Foundation Missouri/Kansas Branch for a special day. The day was all about Miss Jade, a baby doll loving, Harry Potter fanatic that loves the color orange and has great taste in music. Jade has to be one of the sweetest souls I have ever met. Her wish was simply to have a picnic in the park with the Make-A-Wish crew and that is exactly what she received (along with a pretty cool shopping spree and ticket to the Cardinals game).
We spent the afternoon at Forest Park listening to one of her favorite bands, The Beatles, and talking about all kinds of things that made her smile. I am truly honored to have had the chance to meet her and captured a part of her special day.
Jade had a gorgeous Barbie box stand for her photos with an AMAZING ballon arrangement from Be Balloontiful.
All the food was great, a healthy and delicious fruit and veggie spread provided by Rooted Buds. The afternoon’s lunch was catered by Wendy’s (which is Jade’s favorite #Team4for4). For dessert, she had a beautiful cake from Simpson House Bake Shop that tasted even better than it looked and DELICIOUS cookies from Krafty Kravings that were to die for (yes I took a few home to the kiddos with Jade’s approval).
Of course yours truly was there to make sure the moments of the day were captured Jade and her family could remember and relive the memories forever.
I look forward to working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation again to capture more moments like the ones I got for Jade.
