It's about the giving

October 22, 2016

Edit: Thank you for every single one of your big hearts for emailing me with nominations. I cried my eyes out and still am.


A family was chosen on November 30th. Thank you again and PLEASE hug and love your kids, your spouse, your families, your friends. Don't take any day for granted.



Original message: I'm already getting into the Christmas spirit this year and I want to give back! This year, I want to offer a free photo session to a family in need. This could be a family who hasn't ever had their portraits taken. A family who can't afford to have their portraits taken. A family who has had a tough year, few years, life, due to sickness, a tragic loss, trauma, etc. Just nominate a family that you know in your heart needs something like this. 


Email your nomination to me (

Included in the email:

        -The family's name

        -The family's email 

        -The family's phone number

        -The reason you chose to nominate them

        -In the subject line: Give Back


The $300 value portrait session will include:


•30 minutes of shooting time at a location within about 30 minutes driving time of Poquoson, 

•20-25 edited digital images and their black and whites, with a print release


I will take nominations until November 30th, by email. After that, I will choose a family to receive the gift of portraits! And, don't forget to share this!


   Thank you for being awesome!
