As last year came to a close, I started thinking about how I could give back and use my business as a blessing for someone else. I’ll be honest, I wrestled with many different ideas but nothing really stood out and I finally had to let it sit for a while. Driving in the car the other day, I heard a commercial for a ministry called The Sheepfold. My heartstrings were pulled and it was clear what I wanted to do. So, for the month of February, any session booked, I will be donating 30% of the retainer to this ministry. This includes retainers paid for family pictures, senior pictures, as well as wedding photos.
The Sheepfold is a ministry located in Orange, CA that provides refuge, safe shelter and a new beginning for abused, homeless and forsaken women with children. This ministry holds a special place in my heart because as a child, my mother, two sisters and I, were helped by a similar ministry more often than I care to admit. The radio commercial I heard featured a woman sharing about how much a safe house meant to her and her children, which is why i decided this was the ministry I needed to donate to.
If you’re considering booking a session for family pictures, senior pictures or hiring me as your wedding photographer, please consider doing it during the month of February. The session does not have to take place during February, but the retainer does need to be paid in full in February. I’m hoping this is a promotion that helps women in need and if it’s successful, something I can do an additional month or two this year. So please contact me if you are interested in booking a session.
