Sasha ~ March of Dimes Featured Child

BETTENDORF, Ia. – I owe part of the beginning of my photography career to Sasha and her mom, Shari.

When I returned to the Quad Cities in 2007 after being away for nearly 10 years, I had no clue what to do. I had just moved back from Maine after completing a graduate-level documentary photography program, and started scanning the paper. I saw a notice about a 1st birthday party hosted by Trinity for a little girl. I called up Shari, introduced myself and asked if I could come shoot it for fun. She agreed, and that’s when I first met Sasha ā€“ a 1-year-old born 14 weeks ago. At her party, I remember a happy robust baby freely diving into the mini cake placed on her high chair.

She became the March of Dimes Ambassador Child two years ago. Today she is 4, a very active and healthy little girl, and one of the kids who will be featured at this year’s March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction. Also participating will be Chef Robert Lewis, the executive chef at Happy Joe’s.

I can’t wait to shoot this event! If you haven’t gone, you’ll be in for a spectacular treat, especially with Chef Lewis and his colleagues from various restaurants dishing gourmet samples of deliciousness šŸ™‚
