RARE BIRD PHOTO SESSIONS
KATE WHALEN OF RARE BIRD PHOTO SHOT 15 FAMILY PHOTO SHOOTS AND RAISED $1,400 FOR FARA! THANK YOU KATE! IT WAS AN AMAZING DAY! IT WAS SUCH A SUCCESS AND KATE IS SO KIND AND GENEROUS, SHE HAS OFFERED TO DO IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR!
MUCH LOVE AND APPRECIATION TO KATE AND THE FAMILIES THAT PARTICIPATED!
The young lady in these images is my 10 year old friend Anna. I really hope that you all have an Anna in your life. I have known Anna for a few years now and there are a lot of adjectives I could use to describe her. I think the best one, the all inclusive one, is kind. Her heart is kind, her actions are kind, and she emanates kindness, just having her around makes you feel good. This year Anna was diagnosed with Friedreich's Ataxia (FA), a rare and degenerative disorder. The news of such a diagnosis would bring anyone to their knees and pray for hope.
I want to help and provide hope for Anna and others suffering from FA and I want you to help too. On October 30th Rare Bird will be hosting a mini-shoot event where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to FARA. Many of the researchers working on this disorder have stated that it is not an “if” but a “when” for a cure. Let’s help speed up this process!!
The shoot will be held at Anna’s beautiful 1920s house in historic Anneslie. Anna’s mother, Kristin, is a well known event planner and has an amazing talent for creating spaces that are fun, creative and beautiful. The shoots will be 20 minutes, 20 edited images provided on USB, for $75. After the shoot please stop by the neighborhood FA bake sale where maybe Iron Man will sell you a brownie.
Let’s do something good, together. I will provide the art, you can provide the kindness. If Anna can plant kindness into our world every day, so can we. Please email me at
