Giving Back

I believe in the power of photography to capture not only beautiful moments but also to make a positive impact. Giving back to the community is an essential part of my mission.

Through my lens, I've had the privilege of witnessing countless heartwarming moments. It's my way of contributing to causes that matter most to me and my clients. 

When you choose me for your photography needs, you're not only preserving your cherished memories but also helping us make the world a better place, one click at a time.

The Hope Center

For 10 years, I've partnered with the Hope Center in Lexington, KY. I have captured images of their updated properties and many of the different fundraising events. I have captured their property to document inspiring moments at their annual luncheon.

The Hope Center's mission to bring hope, healing, and transformation to individuals and families aligns perfectly with my values. I am proud to support their efforts, especially the One Parent Scholar House, which empowers single parents to achieve their educational goals.

From The Heart

For seven years and counting, I've participated in the "A Good Friday Event" with Chef Angelia Drake and From The Heart Catering. This remarkable occasion brings together women from various nonprofit women's homes in the area for a day of transformation and empowerment.

At this heartwarming event, I contribute my skills to uplift these incredible women. I provide professional headshots, capturing their outer beauty and inner strength and determination.

Through my lens, I aim to instill confidence and support these women in their professional journeys. The event, which includes hair, makeup, and clothing, is a catalyst for positive change in their lives.

Ky Kids Belong

In 2023, I embarked on an exciting journey with Kentucky Kids Belong. This is a nonprofit dedicated to making a difference in foster children's lives. Together, we work to uplift these young souls and help them find loving forever families.

During special events, foster children experience the joy of choosing new clothes, playing games, and having fun in a supportive and loving environment. They also receive professional haircuts and styling to boost their confidence.

As a photographer, I capture these beautiful moments, showcasing children's happiness, energy, and unique personalities. Each child selects their favorite image to take home, a cherished memory they can hold close. Additionally, I provide ten photos of each child to the foster care program, enhancing their adoption profiles and increasing the chances of finding their forever homes.
