Earlier this September, we here at TRG Reality had the privilege of helping to make a "Make A Wish" kid’s dream come true. Leshe Scott is a 17-year-old Broadview Heights girl battling cancer, with aspirations of becoming a photographer. The Make A Wish Foundation approached TRG to find out what kind of equipment they should get for her, but after hearing a little bit about Leshe’s story we wanted to be more involved in her wish, and make sure it was everything she wanted it to be.
With the help of Dodd Camera, we were able to provide her with a Rebel Camera, additional lenses, memory cards and a case. The Make a Wish Foundation completed out her wish with an Apple Laptop and printer, so she can proudly display her work. We also invited Leshe and her aunt, who is her caregiver, to come down to the studio to see a fashion photo shoot for Dots, complete with professional models and make-up stylists. Leshe very quickly familiarized herself with her new camera and ventured into the studio to photograph some behind the scenes action of the Dots shoot.
It truly was our pleasure to make Leshe’s wish come true. Many thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation for letting us be a part of it, Dodd Camera for helping us put together the photography gear, and to Dots for participating in Leshe’s day. Below are some photos of Leshe with her new camera and equipment, as well as a few shots that she took on set that day. A wonderful photographer in the making!
