Nine Girls Ask...All I Can Say is Wow!

This year's Nine Girls Ask Luncheon at the U.S. Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego was amazing. Over 600 attendees were there to support Joan and Dick Wylie (and the other 8 girls) in the organization's efforts to be a resource for women with Ovarian Cancer and to help find a cure. Joan said that while looking out on the audience from the stage she could feel this huge loving energy filling the room. I felt it too... for her, for the guests effected by this disease and everyone dealing with this condition. I loved being a part of this event. There were lots of great auction prizes, vendors and a wonderful lunch, naturally. Fabulous guitar music by Bill Coleman and the high powered singing by  Trisha Kelly added so much to the festivities. Kelly's version of "This Girl's On Fire" to honor Joan as 2013 Woman of Inspiration gave me chills.

As in the past I offered my $500 Buy It Now portrait package for a $100 Donation and will continue to  make this available through Oct 10th. You can contact me at 619-233-9390 or luci@lucidumas.com to arrange a session.

Gorgeous Evening at San Diego Botanic Garden

Okay, the vote is in and the Gala in the Garden was the most beautiful event I have volunteered to photograph recently. There were several areas with food, drinks, music, amazing flower arrangements by Rene Van Rems  through out the gardens...each area prettier and more fun than the one before. As the sun set the event was bathed in golden light and there was a gloreous display of colors in the sky. Then at dusk the lights began to come on and candles were lit the scene changed into a wonderland. Wow!
Although at Luci Dumas Fine Photography I specialize in portraits of children, families, couples and graduates  I love to photograph events that support amazing non-prophet organizations as well as donate my "Buy It Now" portrait certificates. I offered a $500 portrait package for a $100 donation to the garden and will extend that offer through the end of September. My contact info is 619-233-9390 or luci@lucidumas.com

Thanks to Nancy Kelly for including me in this delightful evening!
