Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness Week officially kicks off February 7th! Did you know, 1 in 100 babies will be born with a congenital heart defect? Heart defects are the most common birth defect and yet there is no cure. Babies born with CHD’s will require lifelong care and follow up to keep them healthy and strong. As a proud mom to a CHD warrior, I try wherever I can to support my fellow CHD community. Having a child with a CHD is not only scary and stressful, but can be massively expensive. Expensive doesn’t actually describe it, it can be in the realm of catastrophic. The financial burden and worry that comes along with having a child with a CHD usually means luxuries don’t fit into the budget. One of those luxuries that no one should ever have to miss out on is having beautiful family photos to document every stage of your CHD warrior’s life!
This year I am showing my support by offering a very special session for CHD families. For the month of February, I have released some dates just for CDH families to receive a 30 minute family or individual session with their warrior at a 50% discount.
And just to bring a little extra magic to your session, I’ve teamed up with Dear Livy Kate to provide one of her gorgeous red hair bows, or bow ties, for your warrior to wear during our session. The amazing maker behind Dear Livy Kate is on a mission to support girls, and boys, with all types of differences and disabilities to live their best life, show their style and be confident! I love her message, and it makes an awesome compliment to CHD Awareness week while CDH warriors every #rockyourscar!
