Giving Back | Brandon Leufroy living with Autism

Tanya Mercado Photography
Giving Back to a Wonderful Mother…

Six years ago, I met a woman named Georgianne from work. You would never know by her smiling face each day and her positive personality and attitude that when she went home to her family -- her full time job was easy as pie. Georgianne is a mother of 2 beautiful children. Her youngest is 2 and she has been featured in a sneak peek and her oldest Brandon who is 14 was diagnosed with Autism at age 2. The trials and obstacles that she goes through in her everyday life is challenging to say the least but she puts her all her faith in GOD and prays that HE will answer her prayers.

With Mother’s Day being next month, every full shoot that is scheduled with me until the end of June, I will donate 25% of all sessions to the Brandon Leufroy Fund. The 25% would help his mom buy the special food he needs, some medications and hopefully a little extra. So help me make Mother’s Day extra special for this wonderful mother, Georgianne…And get family, individual or baby portraits to go with that!!!

Today I headed over to the flower fields to photograph a very very sweet baby girl Hayley, who is turning one.  Mom's had her all decked out in the cutest little dresses and you could never forget about a little hair accessory.  Such an adorable little girl!

Itty Bitty Session | Amanda | Jared

Such baby faces these two have.  You could tell with these two that Jared really looks up to his sister Amanda.  When Stephanie told me that their brother/sister bond has grown stronger since Amanda has left for college, I thought, "Wow, I hope my kids will be that..."  They made each other laugh, they chased each other and they just made me amazed at how much two siblings can admire each other.  It was really nice to watch...
