Hello Friends, As you may already know, Lauren and I are knee deep in a fundraising adventure. We’ve set out on a labor of love, set the bar high and are asking for your assistance. On October 2nd I’ll be at Explorations Play Studio all day taking my “jump” portraits to raise money for a very special little girl named Talia. She is the 4 year old daughter of one of my oldest and dearest friends, KP, and his beautiful wife Gayla. Talia has a rare and catastrophic form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome. There is currently no cure. Talia can have as many as 100 small seizures in one day. All we can do is hope that researchers find a way to help kids like Talia. This is why all proceeds from this event are going to the Dravet Syndrome Foundation, a non-profit that channels funds into research.
We have designed a website with more information about the “Jump for Team Talia” event. We’d love if you’d join us. If you’ve already participated in one my past “jump” portrait events, please help us spread the word by forwarding this to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, or anyone who you think may be interested in participating. If you are on Facebook please consider posting the following link. Lauren and I just posted about the event on Friday and have been amazed by the support from the community, including individuals who work in radio and the local public access tv station. We are blessed to have such a wonderful network of friends and live in such a generous community. If you have any other ideas to help us promote this fundraiser please feel free to contact either Lauren or myself.

Thank you all so much.
With much love,
Back by popular demand, I am offering my $45 short sessions. Please click the link below to find out more information. Looking forward to seeing you. Happy Fall everyone!
Here are some of my favorites from the fundraiser I held for FSBC. These kids did a great job jumping for joy and raising money for their favorite pool club!
This past April I blogged about Tali and Stella, the daughters of very good friends who both happen to have kids with rare seizure disorders. I’d really appreciate if you’d take some time to watch this video about Tali and it would be even better if you could take a few minutes to make a donation to help fund research so a cure can be found. Thank you.
On August 7th, fellow photographer, Jen Fariello, and I offered our second Art of Photography workshop. I was busy teaching our participants so I didn’t have much time to actually take photographs. Here are a few I was able to catch. Our models were wonderful and we all had a great day together.
