Giving back

One of my core values is giving back to the community in meaningful ways. Come along with me in supporting two important initiatives:
the Diaper Bank of North Carolina and the Gold Hope Project.

Our Ongoing Diaper Drive

Photography for Children with Cancer

Did you know that 1 in 2 babies in the United States don't have enough diapers? Umm...that's HALF. That's too many.
As a mom, you know how many diapers babies go through in a day! (Omg!) Unfortunately, sometimes babies end up sitting too long in soiled diapers, or their caregivers are forced to diaper their babies with a cloth or towel. And sadly, sometimes parents have to choose between buying diapers or buying food.
Having enough diapers isn't just better for a healthy, clean baby, it also allows parents to use childcare so they can get to work and to spend their hard-earned dollars on other family necessities.
The Diaper Bank of North Carolina collects and distributes diapers and more to families across NC. Let's help our fellow moms and their babies! 
We are currently collecting:
          - diapers (opened or unopened)
          - pullups (opened or unopened)
          - wipes (unopened)
          - baby formula (unopened)
          - checks made out to the Diaper Bank of NC
Size 4 and 5 diapers and pull-ups in sizes 4T and 5T are especially needed.
The studio is open by appointment, but our donation box is accessible during regular business hours. I'm also happy to pick up donations in the Wake Forest area! Let me know if you have any questions!

The Gold Hope Project

As a leukemia survivor myself, it shatters my heart to hear of a child facing cancer. And as a mother, I know I'd want to freeze time as best I could. I'm proud to be a member of The Gold Hope Project, a group of photographers who donate their time and talent to photograph these little warriors.

Many families with ill children are emotionally, physically, and financially strapped. We want to give them something magical – the smiles of their children frozen in time. The Gold Hope Project’s goal is to make sure that these already overburdened families have everlasting documentation of the joy and whimsy of their children, while simultaneously raising awareness of and funds for pediatric oncology research and treatment.  

If you or a family you know are facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis, you can apply for a free portrait session through the Gold Hope Project, or simply email me directly.
