Orlando, FL

About a week ago I was asked to come photograph a teen's wish being granted through the Make A Wish Foundation of Orlando. I had never actually seen a wish being granted, even though I know they are granted all the time. It was such a fun experience to be there firsthand and get to join in on the excitement!

The special wish was for a shopping spree at the Apple store. (How awesome is that?) It was so much fun to see all the employees line up waiting for the very special teen to arrive. There were balloons and applause and lots of smiles as he was taken on an hour long personal shopping appointment with one of Apple's best. They went all through the store discussing the specs of all the different computers and other goodies before deciding on a brand new Macbook and printer.

It was such a fabulous way to start my Saturday! The Make a Wish foundation is full of such wonderful people. If you are looking for a place to get involved you should most definitely look into your local chapter.

Very excited!

Final decision: Macbook + printer. Congratulations!!!
