As you all know I have worked on many high-profile celebs and that tends to be the norm when it comes to my projects…

But, my last shoot this past Friday was for a very special little boy & girl. I had the pleasure of working with Davis Cleveland (from Disney & the new Spy Kids movie) and Maci Drewry a 9-year-old little girl that has touched my heart. Although I have only known Maci for a short period of time, it is quite clear that this little lady is special to say the least.

Maci has Cystic Fibrosis…Friday our cover shoot with Davis Cleveland for BSCENE Magazine was exhilarating! If you do not know what CF is, it is a defective gene, which causes the body to produce abnormally thick and sticky fluid/mucus. This mucus builds up in the breathing passages of the lungs and in the pancreas, the organ that helps to break down and absorb food. The sticky mucus results in life-threatening lung infections and serious digestion problems. It may also affect the sweat glands as well as the reproductive system. Millions of Americans carry the defective CF gene, but do not have any symptoms, and a big part of the CF Foundation is to bring awareness of the disease to the general public.
Our shoot Friday may have been just mascara a little lip balm and blush for Maci (and making sure Davis Cleveland’s hair was on point), but it was all one needs to look and feel there best. Sometime something as simple as the right tinted lip balm can change the way you look and feel. It’s not about quantity; it’s about how you enhance what you’ve have. Lip-gloss/lipstick and mascara are just minor ways to take you a look up a notch!


I hope this blog, as there will be others, brings the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Maci closer to a cure.
Please support me “SAMELIA” and Davis Cleveland in our efforts to help Maci!
