I am honored to have been the third place winner of the i heart faces photo challenge for the week for February 19, 2012. The i heart faces photo challenges receive hundreds of entries every week from some of the best photographers in the industry. To have won 3rd place is an honor and a privilege.
For a short period of time in 2014, I was the proud member of The Tiny Footprints Project. I have since moved on to other opportunities, but they are an amazing group to check out if you have a preemie or baby that must have a NICU stay "TTFP is a group of photographers who are matched with local families to offer their services free of charge to parents of premature babies living in the NICU. The photographers capture the newborns earliest moments and are a part of the families precious beginnings".
In 2012, I received the exciting news that I was accepted as an approved photographer for Inspiration Through Art. Inspiration Through Art is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families with children who suffer from life altering disabilities or serious or terminal illness.
From 2010-2012, I volunteered my photography studio to photograph children with Santa for Chelsea, Michigan's Hometown Holidays Santa Is Coming To Town and Breakfast With Santa. This is a wonderful event hosted in Chelsea, MI every year and I am proud that we were able to capture the wonder, excitement, and magic that is Christmas.
