Families are formed in all sorts of ways. Denise was single, Australian, and very much wanting to be a mum. This is her journey of how her family was formed in Cambodia. Watch and hear Denise’s story and the amazing events that brought Ben, Meg and Denise together, a beautiful story that I am sure you will love too.
Last year I bought a beautiful scarf from Denise which had a little swing tag on it. It read Cambodian Orphanage fund. I chatted to Denise about the fund and she told me her story. I was blown away. So since I had booked quite a few family sessions that day, I decided I wanted to give back and do a story for someone. This is the story I gifted to Denise and her children.
To Denise, Ben and Meg, I hope you like this and I hope this also helps raise funds for your orphanages. Your story is one I would treasure forever. It’s amazing how you all came together. Much love to you, Liz xo
This little film is only part of Denise’s story. Denise shared so very much amazing information that you will love and be very helpful to many people so I have included a few bonus short audio pieces further below that extend on this story. Press play and watch this story first. It goes for 12 minutes. You will want to hear what happens believe me. It’s beautiful and unique.

Voluntourism – PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS IF YOU HAVE EVER CONSIDERED VOLUNTEERING IN AN ORPHANAGE OVERSEAS OR ADOPTING OVERSEAS – BE INFORMED. This is really important and one of the most important things I learnt from Denise.
