Love Is War Fundraiser Update

WOW… this is really cool guys. We raised a total of $2,210 at our photos shoot fundraiser to benefit the St. Baldrick’s foundation for childhood cancer research. This was our first event at the farm that we publicized outside of our friends and family and it was awesome to see the response as you all rallied behind us.
Some big thanks are in order for such a successful day. Thank you to everyone who spread the word on social media and told their friends about this event, we could not have done it without you! Thank you for our raffle basket donations, they were a fun addition to the day. Thank you to our photog assistance Kate Adair, who ran back and forth to the back pasture with us about 20 times (I was so sore after that day!) Thank you to my college roommate Simone, who introduced me to this organization and inspired me to give in my own way (check out awe-inspiring photos from her St. Baldrick’s shaving party last month!) Thank you to Farmer Ross, who was behind us from the start and encouraged us all along, even checking in daily to see how many tickets had been sold. Thank you to everyone who shared their families with us on that very fun day of silly photos, mud puddles and big smiles. And especially, thank you to our photographers who donated all of their time that day, all proceeds from the photo sales and all of their time editing and posting the photos for the families! Thank you all for joining us in fighting dirty against childhood cancers!

Our little barn office was awash with squeals as we sifted through the final photos from each photographer. You guys are all gorgeous people, and all the prettier and more handsome for the obvious joy that emanates from your faces in these pictures. We loved watching parents, grandparents, babies and 9 year “newlyweds” play together on the farm. and some are just too cute not to share!
