When the World Feels Upside Down… Together We Can (plus: bonus photo of me in middle school)

I want to send a HUGE thank you to all of the people who signed up for, donated to and shared my Headshots for Women’s Rights Fundraiser.

With your help, I was able to donate $1,000 (plus transaction fees) to The Lilith Fund, and $1,000 (plus transaction fees) to Women for Afghan Women.

And I was able to spend time with and photograph these beautiful people.

I also want to send a big THANK YOU to Keller Street CoWork, who generously donated the space for the photo shoots, and to Elizabeth Mori, who volunteered to assist during the photo shoots.

It feels really good to live in a community that cares so much about others and strives to make the world better, especially when the world feels upside down.

And when the world feels upside down, I feel very lucky to be able to use my photography to help in the way I know how. When I get discouraged that what I can do doesn’t feel like much, I remember my middle school motto: Together We Can.

Middle school photo for reference, see if you can guess which one is me. PS: I am grateful every day social media did not exist when I was in middle school.

Thank you for supporting my photography and women’s rights. While this fundraiser has finished, I guarantee there will be more fundraisers in the future. So let me know your photo needs and stay tuned for future photo fundraisers. Happy Giving Tuesday!
