A picture means a lot. For some, a picture can mean everything, which is why we’d like to introduce you to Princess For A Day - an event created to benefit Flashes of Hope, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children bravely battling cancer. Locally, each month since 2007, the Indianapolis chapter of Flashes of Hope has transformed rooms at Riley Hospital for Children and Peyton Manning Children's Hospital into a photography studio, giving the children and their families a chance to break from the routine of the hospital and medicine. Mark Watson, the Indianapolis Chapter Director, photographers, and make-up artists continue to do this because to see a sick child smiling and laughing, when there isn’t much to smile and laugh about, is an amazing experience. They know that kids with cancer are still just kids… and parents of these kids know you don’t get a second chance to capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment. There is strength and hope in each extraordinary smile. The photos are an everyday reminder of what matters most.
For the sixth year in a row, Spotlight Photography is hosting "Princess For A Day" to benefit Flashes of Hope. This event gives girls of all ages the unique opportunity to feel like a real life Princess for a day, while giving back to other children battling cancer in their community. For a $25 donation (parents get in free) to Flashes of Hope, children are treated to a day of fun including a makeover, photo shoot, copies of professional pictures, age appropriate games and activities and a celebration of life. Banners featuring children photographed through Flashes of Hope will be proudly displayed throughout the building as a reminder of why we are all on this mission together. For more information, call Mark at Spotlight Photography 317-894-3666 or on his cell 317-372-9300 and please check out our Calendar of Events.
