ToddleWood™ will fulfill Jasmina Anema's wish of becoming her celebrity idol Beyonce for a day, in a special photo shoot taking place at NYU Langone Medical Center, on Friday, May 1. With her mother Theodora's blessing, Jasmina will be transformed into the superstar singer and actress with one of Beyonce's signature looks from the hit movie "Dreamgirls". The ToddleWood™ team will meet with Jasmina and her mother before the event to discuss the photo shoot and have Jasmina pick her very special "Dreamgirls" look.
ToddleWood™, Toddlers in Hollywood, is the brainchild of New York photographer, Tricia Messeroux, in which city kids are transformed into superstar celebrities, iconic figures and historic legends all captured in breathtaking photographs. The ToddleWood™collection includes children in "look a like" poses as Obama, Oprah, J. Lo, P. Diddy, Audrey Hepburn, Ellen, Tyra Banks, Charlie Chaplin, Alicia Keys and Beyonce, just to name a few.
One of the ToddleWood™ project's central goals is to support the efforts of charities and not for profit organizations that help children in need. "We are so touched by Jasmina's very important cause. We are delighted to be able to donate this photo shoot to put a smile on her face and bring further awareness to the campaign to find a bone marrow match. Helping children is what ToddleWood is all about," says ToddleWood™creator Tricia Messeroux.
From the staging and lighting, the one of a kind hand sewn costumes, to the hair and make-up, Jasmina will embark on a once in a lifetime experience. At the end of the day, she will have an amazing photo that she and her family can cherish. In addition, ToddleWood™ will auction off select photos on designated charity websites to support the "One for Jasmina" campaign and DKMS.
The ToddleWood™brand continues to grow and garner media attention. The ToddleWood™ premiere event to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on April 8 was a big success, with an attendance of close to 400 celebrity guests and VIPs. ToddleWood™ will continue it's mission to support children's causes by donating services and hosting benefit events throughout New York City.
