Giving Back

I am a big believer in using the skills that you have to make the world around you a better place.  This is how I do it:

I am a proud volunteer for Soulumination, a non-profit organization that celebrates the lives of children and parents facing life-threatening or terminal conditions.  Soulumination provides, free of charge,  professional photographs of these special individuals and their families.  It’s an amazing organization, and I feel privileged to be able to work with them and the families they serve.

I also host several events each year that benefit local charities, non-profits and schools.  Our most popular events are:

Santa Photos:  This one-day-only event is easily the highlight of my year!  These are by-appointment Santa photos!  No standing in line.  No tired, stressed out kids.  Just fun, goodie-bags, and a chance for a little one-on-one time with Jolly Old St. Nick.  Each year we donate a portion of the proceeds to Rite Care of Washington, an amazing non-profit that provides speech services to children with profound speech and language delays (like my son Harvey) .  These children get quality, state-of-the-art treatment at no cost to their families.

And FYI….each year we sell out!  So be sure to make your appointment early!


Pup-A-Palooza: Come in and get a photo of your favorite four-legged friend, knowing that a portion of the proceeds goes to the Seattle Humane Society!

And, every year, just in time for the Holidays, we offer Mini-Sessions.  These fun, fast sessions are perfect for families looking for a great image to use on their holiday card, or a cute picture of the kids to give to Grandma for Christmas!  And, a portion of the proceeds goes to our local elementary school here in Greenwood!


Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list for dates and times for these fun events, as well as information on our other special offers, sales and classes!
