~ Giving Back
I believe it is important to give to people who are less fortunate. I also believe in the power of photography, and the value of having some of our best memories preserved through photography. That is why I started my campaign Capturing Hope.
This project is about bringing professional photography to individuals and families who can't afford to hire a professional photographer.
I will work with individuals to schedule a shoot of their choosing. This can be anything from maternity, family portraits, individual portraits, engagement photos or even wedding photography all for free!
~ What They Get
Once a family or individual is selected, I will set up a date and time for their photoshoot. The shoot itself is one hour in length and will be done on location at a place agreed upon. For certain photo sessions a makeup artist can also be available. I will provide roughly 5 edited images from the shoot, and the client will pick 1 of those images to have printed. They will receive:
-Two 8x10 prints or one 11x14 print,
-Two 5x7 prints, and
-24 wallet size prints
Of course, additional prints can be ordered at an additional cost.
On occasion I will also provide photography services for a couple's wedding free of charge. However, this is very selective due to the costs that are involved with wedding photography.
~ How I Select The Recipient
The individual/family must be nominated either by someone else or by the individuals themselves. I will review their story and the reasons why they can't afford a photographer. Then, if selected, they are put on a list of names that I will work through based on the type of shoot, if it's time sensitive (i.e. maternity sessions), and when they were nominated.
~ How I Do It
A portion of all my profits from my photography work gets put into Capturing Hope. I also accept donations through the link below or through PayPal. I donate my own time, so the money goes toward the prints and if I need to hire an assistant.
