Local award winning child portrait photographer announced at her May 4th grand opening that, with the participation of 48 area children and their families, the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) will be the beneficiary of more than $11,173 generated in sitting fees and voting related to the 2012 “Our Little Sweethearts” Calendar.
Family members and friends visited Nadine’s website during the month of April and voted for their favorite “little sweetheart.” Each vote was $1.00. The thirteen photographs to receive the most votes were selected as finalists and will appear in the 2012 calendar. All funds raised through the process go directly to the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA).
Susan Cato, CAPA Executive Director, congratulated Nadine for her dedication to the dream of producing a charity calendar for CAPA. “This is absolutely incredible,” Cato stated at the Wednesday evening event. “Funds raised from the calendar will provide the resources needed to ensure that CAPA services are available to all area children and their caregivers,” Cato concluded.
Nadine specializes in portrait photography, both at her new studio located on Elton Lane downtown Beaufort and off-site. All funds generated by the calendar sales will also benefit CAPA. Calendars will be available for sale in time for holiday giving. “Make plans for your children and grandchildren ages birth to five years to participate in the 2013 calendar now in the planning stages,” Cato stated.
“This project was a lot of fun and it was a pleasure to support CAPA,” said photographer Nadine O’Quinn. “I look forward to next year and my continued relationship with CAPA.”
If you or your business is interested in sponsoring the calendar, please contact CAPA at 843.524.4350.
