Giving Back

The wild and crazy holiday season is rapidly approaching, and I always take the season as an opportunity to see how I can give. Giving back is so important to me. I have been so very fortunate in my life, and sharing the abundance of my experience is the best. I don't have many talents...I'm a terrible committee person, for example. I go crazy in meetings, but I really want to help. Doing what I do, I get to help, without being on any committes! I meet the coolest people, too. I might not have even met The Raddocio Family, had they and I not been helping Team Wish. And they were such a fun shoot. They adopted their two beauties very recently, and I was very excited to be a part of their first family photo. Everyone had a lot of fun, and it was so beautiful for me to see how much love they all had for each other. Their parents had made a donation to team WISH, and recieved my gift of a free photo session and painted 8x10 as a thank you for their donation. I am helping Team WISH again this year, The Anthem Country Club's ClubCorp's Charity Classic, and ChildsPlay, a wonderful theatre company in Tempe, as well as Light the Night, a walk to benefit blood cancer research, in honor of Leukemia Survivor and my Zoe's close friend, Chloe. If you are interested in helping a great cause, and receiving some beautiful portraits of your family as a heartfelt thank you for your gift, please get in touch with me. Email me at, or visit my website,, or leave a comment under this blog post, or call me at 480.861.4529, and we can talk. You won't believe how much fun it is to give!
