What an amazing event Call of the Game is. Lauren Book-Lim created Lauren’s Kids a charity to promote awareness to adults and children about sexual abuse. Lauren was a victim of sexual abuse by a nanny and now at only 25 years old tells an amazing story of survivorship. Please click on this link and learn about Lauren’s Kids.

How I became involved. There’s a priceless value on the friendships I’ve made in this industry. One of those friendships is Timothy Beckford, a.k.a. TimCo. TimCo was asked to shoot Lauren’s Kids charity event and subsequently asked me to second with him. And that’s how I met Dwyane Wade.

Not being a huge basketball follower (I’m not the biggest sports nut you’ll ever meet, but I’m a great tailgater!) I really (and please do not scream at me sports fans…) did not know what an amazing person Dwyane Wade was. It’s kinda like my buddy Damon Tucci shooting a small personal event with about 50 people and Colbie Caillat showing up to sing. Damon really didn’t know who Colbie was!! — don’t worry, I gave him my mind about that. Long story longer…

So yeah. There’s all these really huge men walking around, I’m taking photos…etc..etc…Lauren gets to the podium and gives a moving story of her life and charity work. Then, honors D. Wade for his contributions and support of her cause. D. Wade was recognized for over 15 minutes about his contributions to intercity communities and children and families in need. It was like one amazing story after another between Lauren and Dwyane. All I can say is thank god for my camera! It’s a great cover for watery eyes 😉

All in all — I feel blessed to have the family and friends I have. Fortunate to have had a great childhood and amazing husband in my life now. And feel more aware of things I need to do to help make a difference. These people are inspiring and make you want to do something GREAT. Please check out both Lauren and Dwyane’s charities and if not theirs, find out how you can give back in your little world to help make someone else’s amazing.

p.s. I’m standing on my tippy tip toes 😉

There are a lot of people to thank for helping me get this event together! First, my business manager, Katie is amazing! Katie was a huge part of the CinderellaStyle planning process. Thank you Pat at Frenchmans Reserve (www.frenchmansreserve.com) for allowing us to get ready for our crazy fun photo shoot at your beautiful, very accommodating venue. Davis, my uber talented graphic designer, created the CinderellaStyle logo in just days (www.visualwavedesign.com), and of course I love it! Daniel Vann and Tess Weaver — your make up for these girls was absolutely outstanding! Daniel is based out of the Palm Beach area (daredevilmakeup@hotmail.com) and Tess is from Alaska (follow her on twitter @tessiestyle) — but both are totally worth whatever it takes to get your make up done by them! They’re awesome. Josh Newton (www.joshnewton.com), you’re so great! When I asked my California friend if he wanted to play photo-shoot with me and four gorgeous couples he couldn’t resist! Thank you so much Josh! Laura, seriously I couldn’t shoot anything without you! And Zak, my wonderful husband and boat capitain (at times 😉 thank you! MY AWESOME COUPLES — YOU’RE SIMPLY FABULOUS xoxo to you all! Now…enough blabbing…let’s get to the photos! The whole town is talking about it!Possibly because Jimmy Burg is running for mayor!

JUPITER — Sara Kauss of Sara Kauss Photography put her creative mind to work in a local photo shoot on Sunday, Feb. 21. Sara’s CinderellaStyle photography package covered former brides trashing their expensive wedding attire on camera.

This is a growing trend among brides who have no reason to hang on to their white gowns but really want one last chance to put them on. Sara, using her expertise and imagination, took the idea and ran with it using industrial settings and Jupiter hot spots as her sets.

CinderellaStyle by Sara Kauss involved four brides, four grooms, two makeup artists, three photographers, a party bus, a boat and a day full of fun.

“I never thought ruining my wedding dress would be this beautiful and fun'” said Katie Rawnsley, one of the brides involved. The shoot attracted a lot of attention at the final destination Sunday, Square Grouper Tiki Bar at Castaway’s Marina, where patrons speculated what all the Brides were up to.

Sara Kauss Photography, located in Tequesta, specializes in wedding and event photography as well as family photography. Sara is known for her photojournalistic style and her colorful, dynamic photos. Her work has been published in The Knot Florida magazine as well as The Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry. She is also involved in an ad campaign for Miller’s Lab. Her most recent work can be viewed on her blog at https://sarakauss.wordpress.com/.
