We are lucky enough to do what we love and are passionate about and pair it with a few good deeds to help the community. This year we took the opportunity to turn our annual bunny portraits into a non-perishable food item drive. Instead of our normal session fee, our clients brought in $20 worth of non-perishable food items, sometimes even more!
Too many kids right here in our own community go home each weekend without knowing where their weekend meals are going to come from. We wanted to be a part of the solution. This was just a small gesture that we hope makes at least a small impact for the lives of these children.
While giving back, we were able to have a bunch of fun too! Our bunnies this year were Lilly and Thumper, a white and brown spotted bunny and a tan little bunny! These little cuddle creatures add the sweetest element to spring time portraits.
All week, children were thrilled to meet Lilly and Thumper! Lilly and Thumper brought out the excited and gentle sides of the children being photographed. Easy enough to say that these sessions were fun!
With 40 bunny sessions booked for the week, we knew the food was going to add up quick, but it was still a nice surprise to see the pile grow and grow! All together, we had more than $700 worth of food to donate to the pantries of Woodrow Wilson Elementary School and Kannapolis Intermediate Middle School.
It’s so important to us to be able to give back to the community. This is only a small part of a big difference we hope to make!
