The Free Photo Initiative sparked in December 2017 after I volunteered to take photos for a local organization that homes women recovering from addiction. For the past three years, I have given family photos to these mothers for the holidays, an experience I've found to be incredibly humbling and rewarding. With this in mind, I thought it would serve the community well to host events in accessible spots in the area and offer free photos to under-served communities, no questions asked.
Now, with the help of these local communities and generous organizations, word is beginning to spread about this initiative and I look forward to seeing it grow!
Each family that participates receives at least one digital, high-resolution photo from the event via email and they are free to use it as they please, so long as it's for personal use. There is no watermark and no pitch to purchase any other package from me. By offering this, I simply want to make it possible for anyone to have access to a beautiful photo of their family, regardless of whatever financial or circumstantial barriers they may face in other facets of their life.
If you know of a specific community that you feel would benefit from this service, let's be in touch.
