Fashiontographer had a second "District of Fashion" event at L2 Lounge on March 14th to benefit the fundraising efforts of Laura Reece and Ava Deylami as they try to raise money for Fashion for Paws.  The event generated $610 for their efforts.  It wasn't as big as the last one, since there were so many competing events that night.  But we did get some great photos.

In some ways, I'm glad that it wasn't so busy that night.  It was really stressful times with our friend Angie going to the hospital for open heart surgery the day before.  A few of us saw her right after the surgery and even though she was still asleep, we all took a huge sigh of relief as the surgery was successful - even better than they expected.  She did great and was actually walking on her own just three days after the surgery.  And she was able to go home after the 4th day.  She actually just texted me wanting to do a photoshoot with her scar - as a possible awareness for people to check their hearts.  She's going to contact the American Heart Association to see if her story is in line with some of their projects or campaigns.  I can't believe she's already thinking of all this, but at the same time, I'm not surprised.  She's pretty amazing.

Here are the editorial photos from the Fashiontographer event:

Me and Anastasia.  She's been helping document everyone's clothes and typing it up on her laptop.  Once I'm ready to upload the photos, then all I have to do is copy and paste.  Photo taken by Sophie Pyle from "Guest of a Guest DC".
