The Kruse Family :: Seattle, WA

A couple of months ago, my dear friend Lauren came to me with a pretty cool request. She asked if I would be willing to donate a photography session for an auction she was hosting, with her guild, that was to benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital. Of course I agreed - mostly because I could never turn down an opportunity to raise money for Children's considering all that they do for our community and all that they did for my wonderful brother-in-law who considered Children's his second home 14 years ago when he was sick with Leukemia.
I don't think I could have hand-picked a more adorable family to be the recipients of this auction item session. Despite the chilly fall temperatures out at Gas Works Park, little Hayden was trooper - I just love his little smile.
