Meet Taylor. This beautiful, sweet, funny, brave little girl is battling a rare form of childhood cancer. Taylor’s dream was to be a singer, and over the past few weeks Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire made that wish come true! You can read the full story on Taylor’s wish in Parenting OC Magazine – where she was on the April cover!
This past weekend, I had the special honor of being Taylor’s personal paparazzi and photographing her Wish Party, a culmination and celebration of all of the incredible experiences that were granted as part of her wish. Her day started with getting glammed up by her personal glam squad at Tress Apothecary and Salon in Newport Beach. From there the star climbed into a stretch limo and headed to her party for a red carpet arrival. Dozens of her friends and family came out to Boathouse Collective to celebrate Taylor, hear her newly recorded singles, and get their own signed copies of her CD and magazine cover. After an AH-mazing lunch, guests got their groove on, made silly faces in the photo booth, and then joined in singing Happy Wish Day to Taylor. Perfect ending to a perfect celebration!
In addition to the staff at Make-A-Wish who work tirelessly for these very deserving children every day, and all of the vendors who volunteered their time and services to make this day complete, Taylor had two very special people who made it all possible. Wish granters are incredibly generous, kind people with a huge heart who do what it takes to make a child’s wish come true. I caught Taylor’s wish granters absolutely beaming several times during her party, their hearts must have been so full knowing what a difference they made in the life of this little girl!
Ok, so you know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So let’s get on to the photos! Keep on scrolling for a quick little highlight reel with some behind the scenes video, followed by some of my favorite captures of the day.
