Monroe-Woodbury Senior Prom
We recently had the honor of photographing a very special young woman for her Monroe-Woodbury Senior Prom. If you’re not familiar with Cindy’s story you can read more about her HERE . We were initially asked to come to a fundraiser for her, but when we heard about Cindy’s story it really touched our hearts and we wanted to help her in any way we could.
Cindy’s mother died six months ago, leaving her alone to care for two siblings. The 19-year-old has had to become a “mom” to her brothers, a 3-year-old and 21-year-old brother, who has autism.
She is a Monroe-Woodbury High School senior who home-schools herself after losing her mother. She works two jobs to make ends meet.
Cindy arrived in a limo with her friend Jeffery, they both looked amazing. Her dress was stunning! We had less than an hour to shoot, and you’d never know it was raining outside and super gloomy out. Lucky for us the rain was light and held off for the session. We laughed, and had fun before sending them on their way to the Monroe-Woodbury Senior Prom.
Rest Haven is an amazing property with a rich history. It used to be a retreat for blind woman without means, they were offered an all expenses paid two-week summer vacation on the property. Helen Keller, the world famous disability rights advocate visited the property in it’s early years.
The strength and courage she has shown is so inspiring. We truly believe it takes a village and we strive to be a good neighbor and helper in our community. We hope, even if it was just for a night, she felt like a princess and had fun at her prom. We are so proud to be part of such a caring community. Please keep her in your prayers. Special thanks to Timothy Mitts from Rest Haven for allowing us to shoot on his property and special thanks to Mariana From Mariana Feely Photography for helping us on this session.
