Lynna Nguyen Photography

Happy Summer from Red Balloon!

This week, we have an exciting press release to announce with all of you! In the midst of all the excitement, Lynna Nguyen graciously did our summer photoshoot in time for the press release. Lynna is a young Bay Area photographer but don’t let her age fool you; she’s one of the most talented photographers we’ve worked with and has an innate gift for natural lighting to make the ordinary seem extraordinary. Her photos were a gift to Red Balloon so we are so thankful for her and will hopefully have her join our media team soon!

This video submission has been my personal dream for years. I decided it’s finally time to make this dream a reality. We’ll be saying goodbye to you at our November show, but saying hello to over 1000 pediatric patients in local children’s hospitals throughout Northen California. This is truly what I wanted Red Balloon to become.”
