The School Sessions // Making Haiti's Future Bright

I'm excited to share a bit about The School Sessions today!  Started by Jamie Delaine and her husband, Randy Watson, who dreamed of ways to combine their talents and passions (photography, business, construction and leadership) to make a difference in the world around them.  Out of this, The School Sessions was started!

The School Sessions is a one-day event across the globe on Sunday, April 12, 2015 to raise $200,000 to build a school in Haiti.  Portrait photographers around the world are joining together by photographing one (or more) portrait sessions and donating 100% of the fees to The School Sessions.

$200,000 will buy the land and build a ten-classroom school for their 220 students (ages 3 to 16) in Mellier, Haiti.  Their previous school was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake and these children are in need of an earthquake and hurricane-proof school to learn and grow.

Cecilia Flaming Photography is excited to join in along with hundreds of other photographers, through this simple way by giving back and contributing towards Making Haiti's Future Bright.

If you are interested in booking a portrait session with Cecilia Flaming Photography for Sunday, April 12, 2015 please contact me via email at cecilia@ceciliaflaming.com.

You can also visit The School Sessions' Website for more information and details!

The School Sessions is partnered with Hope Force International, a non-profit organization dedicated to disaster response, based in Nashville, TN.

Here's just a recap from the past year...
