Last May I was approached by the March of Dimes to do some commercial photography work for their March for Babies campaign. They came to Calgary from New York to oversee the shoot, and several of my clients volunteered their babies for the project. The March for Babies walks are now taking place all over the United States. (March of Dimes in the US is for raising awareness about premature birth, whereas the March of Dimes in Canada started as a way to raise awareness for polio)
Unfortunately, being in Canada, I was unable to see the images that they used, except on the website . When I recently traveled to Florida, the first thing I saw was one of my images at the front desk on a March of Dimes display. It made me giggle, and of course I snapped some photos. Then my dog chewed the memory card, and I asked some photographer friends to snap photos of any March of Dimes ads or displays they saw.
My friend Ashley McNamara took this one when she was out a few weeks ago in San Diego:
Then the wonderful Jennifer Wilson emailed me these shots she snapped one day:
It was such a fun shoot to do, for such a worthy cause. It’s exciting to know that my photography may have helped someone get involved in something so worthwhile.
