In 2021, we ran a campaign called "The Rainbow Connection" in hopes of giving someone who had experienced a cancer diagnosis the gift of a Senior VIP Experience, which included a few complimentary images. A cancer diagnosis is hard, and we hoped that this gift would ease the burden and allow for positive, happy memories for years to come.
Well... Leilani ended up being chosen for this grant. And I couldn't think of a more perfect person to have given it to.
Let me tell you about her. She's got a very warm and outgoing personality. When you start talking to her, it feels like you've known each other for years! She's accepting, funny, empathetic, intelligent, and so very kind. You can tell she's a hard worker, a friend of everyones, and just loves life! When she smiles, my goodness it lights up the whole room and then when she starts laughing the smile becomes even more infectious (didn't know that was possible)! Her presence is both calming and energizing to be around. Do you know those types of people?!
For her Senior VIP Experience, she picked outfits that fit her. The vibrant colors really made her eyes and complexion stand out. You could also just tell she was comfortable in all her outfits because her images radiate confidence. We had a lot of fun in the water and through the tall grasses at Standley Lake for her images. (peep the images below)
Leilani, it was a pleasure to take your senior pictures. Thank you for sharing about your experience with a cancer diagnosis and I hope this experience was everything you could have dreamed of! Congrats, 2022 graduate! Share your light and love for life with the world.
