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!

It’s the year of the Head Shot…

So far my first three photo shoots this year have been head shots… which is way more exciting for me than for the person I am photographing.

Typically I get some pretty big groans and grumbles and usually the common expression, “I hate having my photo taken,” comes out.

And I say, “Yes, me too, and so do most people over the age of 10.”

But then we talk about other things… favorite foods, best vacations, what crazy things their kids said this morning, and before they know it we are all done.

And that’s when I hear, “Well, that wasn’t so bad after-all.”

One face, a woodshop and a picket fence…

This is Jason.

Jason wants to seriously start pursuing his acting career, so he needed some head shots.

It was amazing to see how differently a person can look with even the slightest changes.

And it was fun to see what a dusty woodshop and a white picket fence can do.
