Xavier - A Little Hero


I received an e-mail last week from Inspiration Through Art (The Littlest Heroes Project), you see I volunteer to photograph children and their families through the organization. It is for children with serious illness and diseases and I get the privilege of meeting amazing children and their families. When I say amazing I don't mean the "amazing" we nonchalantly label things today. I mean AMAZING! The kind of amazing that makes you believe in miracles. The kind of amazing that makes you want to be a better person everyday and be thankful for the blessings you have. The kind of amazing that stays with you a lifetime. The kind of amazing that makes your heart smile to know you got to experience it. These children are that kind of amazing, and so are their families.

Xavier was born two months' premature and wasn't supposed to live more than 72 hours.

Xavier was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (his mitral valve, left ventricle aortic valve and aorta didn't fully develop). Basically he was born with only half a heart.


Because the left side of the heart does not fully develop, the right side overcompensates to get blood to the lungs and the rest of the body.


Sheree (his mother) is having a benefit for Xavier to pay for carpeting in their housing unit so Xavier can sit up on the floor, for travel expenses to Texas Childrens Hospital and other expenses not covered by insurance.


 After Xavier's birth, his parents were given three options: a heart transplant, compassionate care or the Norwood procedure.


"He's our miracle baby. Just because babies are born like this doesn't mean they don't deserve a chance to live." -Sheree



Thank you so much for letting me into your lives, I will treasure it forever.

Information

This post is to answer questions I have been frequently getting recently.

1. Why are you raising your prices?
     The main reason, I am losing money on the $80 deal. I don't just show up with a "fancy camera" and my camera doesn't take great pictures, I spend LOTS of time making my dull lifeless images straight out of my camera and turning them into your families art you hang for everyone to see. It takes time for advertising, booking a session, getting paperwork together. Travel to a location or set up and travel back or break down. Time to upload images, and sift through to pick the best. Time to individually edit each image. Time to back up the images. Time to make an on-line gallery. Time to proof the images. Time to put in print orders. Time to make CD's. Time to do each and every thing. Then factor in the cost of business - keeping up equipment and updating when necessary. Taxes, insurance, business expenses. So after all of that how much do I, the photographer, actually make?
                                                                      ..............................less than minimum wage at the price now

A great breakdown can be found here

2. I have a camera and photoshop, what can I do to start a business like you?
    The short answer: Learn your camera, and I don't mean Auto. ONLY use manual (M) mode. Shoot in RAW. Learn what ISO, aperture, and shutter speed do to impact correct exposure and how to manipulate them to produce quality work. Photoshop cannot fix everything, it should be used to ENHANCE what you have already produced in camera.

Another great blogger wrote a much more in depth article about it. You can read it here

Today I met "G" and surprisingly enough it turned out that he and my husbad went to AIT together a few years back. His Aunt "L" made him take these portraits for their family, and I tried to make it as easy as I could for him.
