With a story of sheer determination, it’s the power of care and compassion that continues to shine bright on spirited Eve. The three-year-old toddler accidentally swallowed acid while living in an orphanage in Liberia. Despite limited resources and access to advanced health care, Eve survived only to rebound with deadly esophageal issues years later. But with the love and concern of one young couple from Iowa who had started a non-profit organization in Liberia, Eve was taken to the United States where she received state-of-the-art care. Although her condition was far more bleak than initially expected, she continues to undergo surgeries to dilate her esophagus and the family remains optimistic for her future. Today, Eve is consistently growing and even looks forward to “surgery days” because of the special attention she receives from everyone at Avera Children’s Hospital.

Before Wyatt could even celebrate his first birthday, he had already displayed strength and courage during a month-long battle with an infection. Initially diagnosed with meningitis, Wyatt received a blood transfusion and was discharged. Shortly after, he was back in the hospital and diagnosed with Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) which began a month long stint of hospital stays and discharges. During this time, he experienced swelling of the brain and blood infections but remained a happy-go-lucky little boy and would even flash an occasional smile at the nurses! Despite concerns about loss of hearing and impaired learning, Wyatt has gone on to make a full recovery thanks to the great care he received at Avera Children’s Hospital.

Young Lauryn is a true miracle. After surviving a deadly motor vehicle collision in 2013, three-year-old Lauryn suffered severe injuries which included multiple contusions to the head and numerous broken bones. The caregivers at Avera quickly went into action and were able to save her young life even though the fate of the others, including her mother Sara, were not as fortunate. With the loving help of her grandparents, Lauryn is making the long journey to recovery. They credit the amazing staff at Avera for her positive outcome and felt like they were part of the family. Today, Lauryn is a true little gem and still holds a special place in the hearts of those who cared for her.

I had a phenomenal time in Ireland with the world renowned Society of XXV, a select group of 25 top photographers from all over the world. We gathered at the breathtaking Powerscourt Hotel Resort. This enchanting, Palladian-style estate is one of the most scenic and historic estates in the country. This was the perfect venue for the photographers in this phenomenal group to share cutting edge ideas, extraordinary insights, creativity, and powerful inspiration, elevating all of us and raising the level of our craft. It's so humbling to be a part of this insanely brilliant group of photographers, each with their own expertise and perspective from around the globe. Thank you Padraic and Sonia for being such gracious hosts. My mind jam packed with incredible ideas. So excited to bring it all back to you, our awesome clients!
