10% (and more) of every wedding or session is given to make an impact on our world today.
My heart has always been in giving back to the community. If your heart is in the same place, then you're a perfect fit for us to serve. You see, when you support LMP you support a small business and support a family but you also make your memories mean more. 10% of every dollar you give (and often times, more!) goes to serve an organization that serves others. In 2013, God gave me the dream of photographing orphans, in 2015 I was able to live out that dream. Through The Archibald Project's Media Mission trips, I was able to journey to Tulcea (pronounced Tool-cha), Romania. It was a life changing trip for me. Unfortunately we cannot adopt these precious angels due to current adoption regulations but that means we should be working harder to make sure we are serving them. Each child is important, these children have a piece of my heart. I'd love to give you more information about my 10 most powerful images on my trip (not all are represented below) and more information on how you can help! Simply email me or connect with me on social media! Other amazing partnerships have been with Sole Hope (www.solehope.com), Houston Pregnancy Help Center, Village Park Church, The Archibald Project (www.thearchibaldproject.com), NOROC (New Opportunities for Romanian Orphan Children (www.noroc.org)), Kichin Refugee Assistance, Compassion International, feeding and clothing the homeless in Houston, and more to come! I'm excited to see where our next service project goes next! If you'd like to get involved, we'd love to have you!
I'm always interested in helping and serving more. If you have find an opportunity that you think I could photograph or serve, please do not hesitate to contact me!
I was gratefully (and divinely) chosen to be a part of The Archibald Project's Romania Media Mission that changed my heart! I'll never be able to thank Nick and Whitney enough for the opportunity I received AND the many many people who supported my mission!
If you would like to make an impact using your gifts to teach the world about orphans (gifts don't have to be missions but supporting their obedience!) please go check them out!
Black Sheep Bride is a community of vendors and brides that are dedicated to giving back in a big way. Locally and globally these partnerships ensure that there are weddings that are dedicated to making lives better for others. I'm excited to partner as a vendor for BSB and in turn, give 250 meals to feed children in Nepal! Let's make a difference together!
I'm so so so excited to be working with The Birthday Party Project as they launch in Houston to change children's lives! They believe that EVERYONE deserves to be celebrated especially those who are in hard circumstances such as survivors of domestic abuse, homelessness, and more hardships. Get your family involved in a birthday party that proves that #joychangeslives.
So excited for this!
I'm so very excited about partnering as a School Session photographer to make a difference in the lives of school children in Haiti! From their site:
The School Sessions exists to partner individuals with photographers worldwide to build a school in Haiti. Six years ago, an earthquake devastated much of the poverty-stricken nation, taking the lives of almost half a million Haitians and destroying thousands of schools.
Only a couple miles from the earthquake’s epicentre, the 200+ students from ECCA School, were left without a place to learn. Years later, staff and students continue to gather in a crowded and makeshift facility.
During the month of April, when you book a portrait session with a participating photographer, your session fee will help build a brand new facility for ECCA School.
In 2015, The School Sessions hosted our first global fundraiser. Our supporters (that’s you!) helped us raise over $45,000 and purchase new land for the future ECCA School. Together in 2016, we have a goal of $150,000 to fund the new building costs. Let’s get started!
I would love to work with you to make this possible! I have 2 sessions available for 100% donation in April!
