“I think there comes a time in each of our lives and maybe even a specific moment when we become so painfully aware of a problem, that we can no longer dismiss it…” -Shelain Maxfield
This week we helped T E N woman #Fly. It was an incredible experience. The saying “Words won’t do it justice” would be fitting to use here. It was simply incredible.
Have you heard of the Younique Foundation? Go now and educate yourself on what they do. It is incredible. Their mission is to inspire hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by hosting them at a retreat, where they are uplifted by each other and learn skills that can help them find individual healing.
As our “about” video spread on Facebook the director of the Younique Foundation, Chris Yadon, came upon it. He reached out shortly after to see if we could figure out how to collaborate our efforts as we have the same gaol; to help woman who have fallen victim to abuse find hope and healing.
We are extremely humbled to be connected to such a beautiful and inspired organization. Seeing how brave these woman are to face this trauma head on is so inspiring.
This is the crew of volunteers for our first Younique Foundation retreat. To say we felt lucky to have the talent we did is an absolute understatement.

Thank you for the support we continuously receive. It has moved us to tears on many occasions.
These retreats are being held 3 times a month. If you are an experienced photographer, or hair and makeup artist and would like to get involved feel free to reach out to us. We’d love to spread the joy of changing lives!
