Maria's Sunflower Patch of Hope | Portrait Sessions 2019

One of my favorite parts of my job is being able to give back to the community. Sometimes we all get wrapped up with what's happening in our own lives that we forget there are bigger problems to solve. Being an Avon Lake resident and seeing this beautiful Sunflower Patch in the late summer reminds me just how fleeting life can be and also change in a blink of an eye. Life is so, so fragile. Also, every child also deserves the chance to live a long, happy life. 

I AM so HAPPY to hear that the Prayers from Maria Sunflower Patch will be once again planted at it’s Avon Lake location! It was built out of love and compassion for children and their families and the dire need for research from The Children’s Glioma Cancer Foundation.

The Children’s Glioma Cancer Foundation is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and their families who deal with the hardships of this disease. I will be photographing at the sunflower patch the end of August 2019. For every session booked, I will be donating 30% of each session towards this amazing foundation.

If you would be interested in booking a mini or full session to help support this great foundation - please feel free to contact me directly at: or 440-506-8547. 

Mini sessions will be $150 for a 30 min. session and full sessions are $350 for 1 hr.

Dates for the sessions will be updated once the Foundation releases the dates. The field is anticipated to bloom by the end of August.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about this amazing organization and all that it stands for! I hope to see some of you out here next month for the last sessions in Avon Lake.

Enjoy some of the highlights from last year's sessions. :)
