Charlotte baby and maternity photographer, Mimika Cooney of Photo Lyrical Photography, announces the casting call for her annual calendar charity project. The calendar project aims to raise money for the charity Mothering Across Continents, with 100 percent of the proceeds to be donated. The vision of Mothering Across Continents is to be a non-profit catalyst, empowering women to provide care and compassion to orphans and vulnerable children in Africa.
The 2010 calendar casting call seeks mini models of newborn babies and children under seven to be photographed for the calendar during the month of September. This year's theme is ''Tasty Treats & Movie Stars'' and each child will be dressed and styled according to theme. For babies; imagine a cute strawberry parfait, banana split, or lemon sherbet. For children, imagine a mini Audrey Hepburn or Elvis Presley.
South African born Mimika Cooney is an international award-winning photographic artist based out of Charlotte. Mimika received her photographic training and qualifications through British associations, whilst she ran her successful wedding and portrait studio for three years in England. Since moving to the USA in 2006, Mimika has recreated her boutique studio specializing in emotive and heartfelt portraits of pregnancy, babies and children. Mimika has been invited by the British photographic association, SWPP, to teach a Masterclass to other professionals in London in January 2010.
