I love being a photographer and I am thankful to have a gift that brings such joy. This job has given me the opportunity to develop very special relationships. It is a privilege to give back by using my photographing for a greater purpose. Portraits with Purpose is my philanthropic initiative to raise money and awareness for the significance of mental health. I am incredibly grateful that I may connect my photography to such a meaningful cause.
Portraits with Purpose will be offered twice a year. These sessions are open to any of my previous clients. These established relationships are so special to me and make these mini-sessions so much more meaningful. All the images will be in Black & White. The goal of the project is to represent the unique personality and value of each person while minimizing distractions. Prints or products are available to purchase.
My inspiration for Portraits with Purpose came from The Project Beauty, created by Thomas Nguyen. He offers mini sessions as a fundraiser for organizations that offer mental health services to teens. Thomas has given me his blessing to start my own version of this Project that will be open to any of clients.
100% of the session donation and the money paid for products will go to the designated beneficiaries.
Donations of $250 or more are tax deductible and paperwork will be provided from the beneficiaries.
