Over the weekend, I did my very first volunteer shoot for the Make-A-Wish foundation. I was referred by a fellow photographer/friend and after many emails, I found out I'd be shooting for a 4-year old's birthday party... Dora themed! It was a challenging event for me for many reasons (first shoot using my brand new Canon 580EX II flash, first indoor shoot, etc.), but it felt awesome being part of such a great event. Dora showed up, the limo pulled in and the kids ran wild! Success!
