the pictures in hands project
As I write this, it's the end of March and we are observing 'shelter in place' here in Minnetonka MN. I'm looking at an uncertain future in my own business, but am also very aware of those families in my community who will be affected by COVID 19.
I have decided that, in my own way of helping, I will offer several free photo sessions this summer/fall to High School Seniors attending school in the Minnetonka district whose families experience financial hardship through job loss. I will donate not only my time to style and shoot a full session, but give back financially 5% of my net sales through the end of October to purchase an album to donate with each session I shoot. I'm calling it "pictures in hands" because I know the power of print and the importance these photos will have over a lifetime.
If you know a teen in this situation and truly won't be able to afford Senior Photos this year, please contact me to nominate them for this project!
