Last fall, I had the pleasure of photographing a calendar for Magic Moments, a Birmingham nonprofit devoted to creating special moments for children in Alabama with chronically life threatening medical conditions. Since its beginning in 1984, Magic Moments has fulfilled the dreams of of more than 4,400 children in the state.
We took two days to photograph twelve sets of donors with magic moment children in some of Birmingham's most iconic locations. Since the portraits had to be taken during business hours, all of these frames were shot with one off-camera strobe. I wanted these images to reflect the vitality and courage of the children, hence their bright, vibrant hues.
Last but very not least, here are the women of Magic Moments. These ladies make it happen!
If you would like a Men of Magic Moments calendar, order by making a $15.00 donation at http://www.magicmoments.org/, (add $2.50 if you would like it mailed) or contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org or 205-638-2426.
