I recently had the honor of photographing a fabulous event put on my good friend Mandi Kelloway of the Just For Grins Foundation. Though today you could never tell when you meet her, Mandi, of Once Upon A Stylist, was born with a cleft palette and she uses her struggle as a young girl dealing with it all to now give back and help other young girls in the Jacksonville area to help give confidence and financial resources to those needing surgeries to correct their smile. Every year she hosts a fun day of beauty event where she has a team of hair and make up artists giving makeovers to the girls and then getting their portraits taken. This year I teamed up with another good friend Chloe Austin to cover the event and provide these girls with beautiful portraits of themselves. Above is Mandi and I having fun in the photo booth, and below are some of my favorite portraits from the day of these amazing young girls!
