dsc_2099_tmomMini Sessions For a Cause

Update your family photos and help keep babies in our community healthy! Did you know that 1 out of 3 families struggle to buy diapers in NC? And diapers are not covered by food stamps resulting in some families having to choose between food and diapers? The Diaper Bank of NC – Greater Triad works with local agencies to provide diapers for families in need. Life by Lauren Photography will be offering mini sessions with your choice of Mini Session Package in Winston-Salem on Saturday, October 22. 15% of all proceeds will go directly to the Diaper Bank. PLUS if you bring a pack of diapers to be donated to the Diaper Bank, you will receive 25 custom designed Christmas cards! Sessions are limited. Click here for more information or to book your mini session.
