Fab Four

I love this family~ Kathy and I first became friends in the third grade and it's a little surreal that we now both have children the same ages as when we met. I look at our daughters and wonder who of the friends they met in the past year will still be around in 25 years? We have been so blessed to have a great group of girlfriends who are supportive and caring of one another. I honestly don't know what I'd do without them~ there's just something incredibly meaningful about being real with people who have known you long enough to cover decades of laughter, tears, great success, trends, embarrassing moments and everything in between.

The kids (and Tucker, their chocolate lab) did a great job tonight and I am so excited with how their images turned out...check out those amazing blue eyes...unbelievable! They had fun picking out their "spots" to be photographed and I especially loved Mr. E with his totally cool pose on the king's throne ;-)  Thanks for a great time & I'll have your pics ready on the gallery later this week!

Giving Back~ Organizations supported by Circle of Life Photography

In giving back, Circle of Life Photography's main goal is to help those experiencing extreme poverty and nourishing them with food, shelter and spiritual guidance. Education is a big part of helping people learn how to help themselves and change the downward spiral of poverty for a better future for themselves and their children. Locally, a more tangible way of giving back is through using my photography gifts to serve others who are experiencing crisis (see NILMDTS and Pillows of Love.)

Compassion International~ Haiti's Child Survival Project

In 2011-12, Circle of Life Photography makes a monthly $30 donation to the non-profit organization, Compassion International, whose goal is to change Haiti through the rescue, nuture and discipling of children during the critical early childhood years.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation (NILMDTS) gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart for families overcome by the grief and pain of the death of their newborn or infant. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives. I am an active NILMDTS volunteer photographer for Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Lancaster Women & Babies Hospital.

Joni & Friends Family Retreat

I am honored to be a volunteer photographer at the Joni & Friends Family Retreat in the Poconos (Spruce Lake Retreat) for a week each summer (click here for past blog post.) Joni & Friends seeks to serve as a ministry of outreach to people with disabilities and their families across the US and around the world. Families from around the country attend Family Retreats seeking relaxation, encouragement and a time to strengthen their family.
