Not Just Skin Deep – Portraits for Melanoma Awareness May 26th 2012

Photographers and families, coming together in the fight against cancer.

“The fight begins with an initiative called Not Just Skin Deep. The goal is to raise $10,000 in one day for the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund. Over 20 photographers in Southwestern Ontario and British Columbia have volunteered their time and talent to support this initiative! On May 26th, we will come together to provide portraits for over 100 families, with 100% of the proceeds supporting the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund.”

I am honoured to be a part of such an amazing cause. If you haven’t seen the youtube video “Dear 16 year old me”, take the time to watch, it is an eye opener. My dad has skin cancer so I know that puts me at a higher risk. As a fair skinned young girl, I didn’t want to bother with sunscreen and I naively burned many times. It is my goal to make sure that my daughter is my 16 year old someone, that she takes the time to protect herself from the sun!

Sessions will run from 4:30pm – 7:00pm on May 26th, 2012.
The session fee is $100, with 100% going to support the David Cornfield Melanoma fund.

Each family or couple will be provided with a 20 minute photography session along with a disc of 5 retouched, high resolution images with full printing rights. The number is limited to 5 people per session.
