Laila Rose Foundation

I had the very special honor of being the event photographer for the first annual Laila Rose Foundation fundraiser.

Sheep races....I didn't win... :(

I have pasted a portion of the website to my blog.

The Laila Rose Foundation was established in 2006, in loving memory of our precious Laila Rose Engh, whom we lost at the tender age of four in a tragic automobile accident, along with her devoted mother, Lisa Engh. Laila Rose was an exuberant ray of sunshine in the lives of all who knew her. To our family, she was a pure delight for the short time we were blessed to hold her. Laila was a beautiful child, secure and confident in the warmth and love of her family. For Laila Rose, each day was a celebration of dance, song and utter joy. Our lives changed forever the day we lost Laila Rose and her incredible mother, Lisa. As a result of this tragedy we resolved to turn our grief into action and find a way for Laila's legacy to bring the sort of joy to others that she brought to our lives as a daughter, sister, granddaughter, neice and friend.
The mission of the Laila Rose Foundation is to provide financial assistance to meet the medical and surgical needs of adopted children and their families. Our hope is to give children the gift of confidence and joy that Laila Rose exuded every day in her short life.
Please consider joining us in our mission. The Laila Rose Foundation has already made a difference, and we hope you will help us bring more smiles to beautiful faces and strengthen the families who have opened their hearts and homes to these precious souls.

The foundation raised over $17,000.00...all from gracious donation from their spring fundraiser.

Here are a few of the photos I took from the event.

We had been having an amazing amount of rain this spring but the Lord gave us a break and provided us with the most incredible weather with a beautiful sunset.

You cannot have a celebration on a farm without sack races!


  1. I love your photos, they are really great!
    What a wonderful fund raiser and wonderful cause as well!

  2. I love the photo of the little girl. The tribute is so wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

  3. The sun set shot on the hay makes me want to own a farm!
