I recently had the privilege of photographing sweet Gracie’s Make-a-Wish dream come true. Gracie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis shortly after birth and let me tell you there is no one stronger or more deserving than this little girl. She is always smiling and cheerful whenever I see her, but I have never seen her quite as happy as she was when she saw her wish had come true.
Gracie has been wanting a camper so that her family can travel to Montana together and now she can do just that! The whole day was a total surprise to Gracie and was orchestrated by the Make-A-Wish Mississippi team along with the help of the sweet ladies of the Junior League of Vicksburg.
Gracie thought she was going to run an errand with her mom, and boy was she surprised! The look on her face when she saw her camper was priceless. Not only did she get her wish but she was surrounded by all her friends and family who have been on this journey with her. Her best friend from Ohio even flew down to share this special day with her.
Photographing special moments in people’s lives is truly my favorite thing to do. Gracie spreads such joy with her life, and all the hands that worked to make her special day happen were a beautiful picture of love and sacrifice.
Take a look at Gracie’s special day!
