We rise by lifting others...




I am a proud Red Thread Sessions volunteer, which means that I offer discounted portrait sessions for families who are going through the process of adoption. Learn more here.


When you hire me as your photographer, you are making it possible to provide support to our sponsored child through World Vision, Estraga, and his entire community in Mozambique, Africa. 

Other Charitable Donations

I have an ever growing list of non-profits that I donate a percentage of my booking fees to. These organizations have either directly impacted my life, or the lives of my clients. I am always looking for ways that I can give back through this business. Past and present clients, please let me know if there's an organization close to your heart that I can add to my list!

World Down Syndrome Day March 21
10% of all March bookings donated to The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City, in honor of my little buddy Finn and his family.

World Autism Awareness Day April 2
10% of all April bookings donated to Variety Children's Charity of Greater Kansas City, in honor of The Fare Family.

National Foster Care Month
10% of all May bookings donated to Foster Adopt Connect. This organization supported me on my journey through foster parenting, and adoption, and continues to support my family today with post-adoptive resources.
