Sipper Photography is excited to announce that we are involved with The Painted Turtle Charity.

This charity is one in Paul Newman’s foundation that hosts a camp and other year round programs for seriously ill children, as well as a family care center so these children can spend quality moments with their families in a comfortable environment.

Our involvement came about when we spoke to event designers Rachelle Jones of So FabuLuxe and Andrea Brown of BlissGirlz Events. Both of these fabulous ladies are hosting events this year to raise money for The Painted Turtle.  Both Rachelle & Andrea had visited our website and told us they absolutely loved our photography, and they were hoping we would  shoot some of the upcoming events in honor of this charity. When I heard we would be working to raise money for ill children, my heart melted and I wanted to be involved.

Our first event was last Saturday, which was an awesome shoe party event that Rachelle hosted with Shooz Etc. in Los Angeles and BlissGirlz Events to start raising money for this year’s fundraiser  “Masquerade at Twilight”; which will be held in October to celebrate the camp’s fifth anniversary as well as honor the camp and its successes. We are so honored to be asked to contribute to such an amazing goal through the work of our photography, and excited to work with these two talented event planners who will make these events spectacular. With nothing but talent all around us we are all committed to making this event a success.

Here are a few shots from the Shoe Party for Charity that we took, you will get to see our fabulous designers, some of the beautiful decor for this event as well as some of the shoes that the ladies shopped for in which some of the proceeds were donated.

Thank you so much to Rachelle & Andrea for getting us involved in such a great cause!
