This incredibly gorgeous young girl has been through a tough time. A 16-year-old high school student and an incredibly talented artistic skater and a recently-diagnosed cancer sufferer. She and her family have gone through so much recently so together with an incredible team we pulled off a beautiful photo-shoot in a "Make a Wish" style project!
Please get behind this gorgeous young girl and support her and her family to KICK CANCER'S BUTT!!! Check out her Go-Fund-Me:

This beautiful girl, Jenny, was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor a diffuse anaplastic astrocytoma in January, with little hope of recovery. When we were approached by a family friend to help make a little wish of Jenny’s come true we were excited to put together an amazing team of women to create a magical photoshoot and make Jenny feel like a princess for a day! The results are absolutely breathtaking....
The following day we received this beautiful message from Sara, Jennys sister-in-law
“Good Morning Everyone I hope everyone got a lovely nights sleep last night!
I just wanted to take the time out to say a massive thank you for yesterday. Jenny and I both had such an amazing time with lots of laughs!
Yesterday you all got to see Jenny for who we love her to be, bright, bubbly, funny and of course breathtakingly beautiful.
All the way home, Jenny sung all of your praises and it was obvious that she just had the most amazing time. Even without seeing the end product I can safely say yesterday was one of my favourite days that I have ever been able to spend with Jenny and that means more than you will ever understand.
Being able to have her hair and make up so perfectly done, and be able to have her photographed in such amazing dresses was a dream come true for Jenny. Seeing her like that was particularly special for me, and when the photos come through, for the rest of the family, as Jenny's school formal is this year, and we don’t know if she will make it that long at this stage which is daunting.
To Begitta - your work is simply stunning, you are exceptionally talented yet such a down to earth darling to work with. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your insane schedule to make this happy for Jenny. I was so excited to see her in the insanely gorgeous teal dress, which on the way home Jenny said that she chose just for me to see her in.
To Bree - thank you for making Jenny "drop dead gorgeous" you most definitely are true to your name. Jenny has worn her make up to one of her medical appointments this morning and her hair down and wavy from the curls as you said it would be. She loved how she felt and looked, and last night she said that having her hair and makeup done professionally was on her bucket list.
To Erin - You are a delight to work with! Thank you for making Jenny feel so beautiful and comfortable while you were photographing her yesterday. You really captured who she is as a person even just from those that we have seen so far. Jenny could not speak higher of you and neither could I.
To Jaime - I honestly can't thank you enough for making us laugh so hard yesterday. I have not seen Jenny that happy for what feels like a painfully long time. To hear her laugh like that will be something I will cherish forever. You are an incredible person and we are so blessed to have you in our lives. This time would be so much harder without you.
Honestly I can't thank you enough for yesterday. You have collectively given Jenny a moment in her life that she will never forget and given her the opportunity to see how beautiful she is to all of us.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
