RAMPS Benefit Sessions

RAMPS - Ramp Access Made Possible by Students - was our charity of choice for our February Benefit Sessions. What started as a challenge by three area high-schoolers to contribute to their community, RAMPS has since installed nearly 400 wheelchair ramps for the disabled and elderly, involving 27 high schools and over 1000 students. For these benefit sessions, 11 Sixteen Photography raised over $1000, which was enough to install TWO wheelchair ramps! (The students raise $500 per ramp, and the organization covers the remaining costs.)

Below you will first find a few snapshots of one of the wheelchair ramps installations, made possible from funds raised by you guys! Keep scrolling to see some adorable photos from each of our RAMPS Benefit Sessions.

Abbott's Newborn Session

Abbott was snoozing soundly in this tiny bed at his Newborn Session in January. Gray and Ivory were the colors of the day for this photo collection. When deciding on colors for your session, we always recommend that you consider the colors in the room you will be displaying your photographs. Want to hang a canvas in the nursery? Be sure your chosen session colors will complement the rest of the nursery decor.

Harmony's Cake Smash Session

Sweet Harmony! This beautiful baby girl looks like a Snow Princess in her floral cream dress and woodsy winter backdrop. These neutral shades with pops of shimmery gold give this session a Regal feel. Miss Harmony has the sweetest smile and looks so relaxed for her session. I have a feeling her personality matches her namesake!

Colin's 6-Month Milestone Session

Colin was a happy, smiley baby for his 6 month session! Neutral shades of gray and ivory with pops of red give Colin’s photo collection a cohesive look. With this age group, it’s always fun to stick them in a container of some sort! Not only does it make for adorable photos, but its a new and fun experience for them and usually elicits some sweet baby smiles. Here we used a rustic tub, a white wooden crate, and a wicker basket.

Worthdays Benefit Sessions!

Our Worthdays Benefit Sessions held in January were open to Newborns and Babies up to 12 months old. Worthdays is a non-profit founded by Caroline Neal, which aims to ensure that all children in the foster system feel important, worthy and celebrated, especially on their birthday.

Kelly kept these sessions simple with shades of brown for the backdrop and props, and ivory outfits for the babies. Some parents opted to bring their own outfits, and that’s just fine, too! Scroll down to see some cuteness overload in the images below!

The Worthdays Benefit Sessions brought in over $1000 in donations! If you’d still like to contribute to this cause please go to https://www.worthdays.org to see how you can help.

Meet Caroline - Founder of Worthdays

In January, 11 Sixteen Photography hosted Benefit Sessions to benefit the non-profit Worthdays. Caroline Neal is the Founder and Executive Director at Worthdays. A former social worker, Caroline knew firsthand how difficult the Foster System could be on children, and had a vision to make them feel worthy, especially on their birthdays. “Worthdays vision is to ensure that those impacted by the Foster Care system know that they are important, worthy and celebrated.” We are so proud to support and bring awareness to this cause. Every child deserves to be celebrated on their birthday.

Tomorrow, look for a blog post with a collection of our Benefit Sessions for Worthdays!

James's Cake Smash Session

James came to the studio in December for Part 3 of the Baby’s First Year Program - the ever-popular Cake Smash Session! By taking advantage of this program, we were able to capture his most important first year milestones and provide Mom & Dad with a beautiful Keepsake 10”x10” album of all three photo sessions. They also received one 16”x20” canvas for each session plus print credits!

The McCurry Family Fall Mini Session

The McCurry Family met with Denise in November for this fun Fall Mini Session! We love the kids’ outfits, especially that pea coat, dress and brown boots. I need that outfit! Big sister’s leggings match little brother’s jeans, and his sweater compliments her jacket. Mom pulls it all together, both literally and figuratively!
