Big Fat Cupcake

BFC66  Raise your hand if you love cupcakes! Of course you do. Who doesn’t? They are the perfect sized little cake that just happens to provide great comfort and happiness. Don’t you agree?BFC51 This past week I had the honor of shooting an event for Big Fat Cupcake. I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely and talented Kathleen, owner of BFC. You see it was just three years ago that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Going through all her chemo treatments took a toll on her body leaving her unable to work. She used to be a chiropractor. Being unable to work and pay her bills, her home eventually went into foreclosure. Through all of this she found comfort by baking. Out all that baking came a  cupcake bakery which she now owns and operates.BFC39This is where these beautiful ladies come in. Kathleen decided to start a foundation  to help others, with cancer, to pay bills that they have trouble paying. Having created this foundation she came up with the idea to create a calendar with the help of her friends and employees.BFC19
That’s right.These beautiful ladies were made up to be pin up models! They held an event to launch the calendar at the JW Marriott’s Second Home. It was a lovely event. If you are ever in the Denver area be sure to stop by Big Fat Cupcake. You will not be disappointed.BFC4    If you can’t make it to the store you can still pick up some cupcakes by finding the cupcake truck!BFC70 Thanks to my friend Carissa for giving me a big push to shoot this event. You can check out some more of the photos HERE or view the slideshow below.
