Capture for a Cause
Giving back one moment at a time
I don’t want to say that I grew up poor because there are plenty of people who have grown up much less fortunate than I was... but back then this was my normal. I lived with my mom in my grandma’s basement for a few years and my first bedroom after that was a small bed lying underneath the clothes in her closet. I always shared rooms with my siblings and sometimes a can of green beans and chicken kiev from Aldi with my mom for our dinner. Seeing the constant struggle in my family throughout the years, I have made it a point to push myself out of that struggle. I was the first person in my immediate and extended family to go to college, start a business, and join the Army. I hope to continue having that list of firsts grow on and on.
Now I feel it’s time to use what I have done and the knowledge I have gained to make an impact on those less fortunate and give back in ways that I had wished for when I was younger! It makes me feel extremely blessed that I am able to fulfill my purpose to help others.
With that being said, know that every photography and film experience has a charitable proceed tied in. Not only that, but everything purchased from your gallery and my shop will also go to various organizations. From each purchase, you will be able to choose which organization you would like to donate to and support! Also, I am totally open to new opportunities to give back, so if you have an organization that you are passionate about, let me know and we can make it happen!
I love giving people the ability to look back on their love stories, so thank you for helping me use those memories to make a difference in more ways than one!
