While asking friends, family, and even strangers for money is not the most comfortable thing in the world I truly believe in the idea of community helping and supporting each other and gofundme is the perfect way for a large number of people to help out in ways big or small. Most of all I believe my cause is worthy.
My goal is to raise $6,000 in order to purchase the much needed equipment and supplies for starting my business without incurring debt that would place a further financial burden upon us. My current equipment is simply not sufficient. While I focus on using natural light as much as possible it is crucial that I have at least a basic light setup so I can deliver quality images to my clients rain or shine (especiallly in Oregon!). My computer also must be replaced as it has only a partially working keyboard and the USB ports no longer function. In addition my camera is in serious need of upgrading and I need a replacement lense.
I plan to launch my business this summer (2015) focusing on maternity, birth, and newborn photography.
It may seem like a big goal but many small donations make a big difference. Please help me build a beautiful and inspiring business that will help my family for many years to come! I will be forever grateful to all of my supporters-- friends, family, and new friends! Your generosity is an investment in the lives of seven incredible young people (see below) and will help a dedicated mother fulfill her dream.

Donations will be allocated accordingly:
$700 - simple lighting kit (strobe, softbox, backdrop stand, and basic newborn posing equipment,)
$1,000 - laptop replacement
$1,000- lense replacement
$ 3,000-camera equipment replacement and upgrade of camera body
$ 300 - branding and basic website costs
Please LIKE and SHARE my campaign with friends. Only through the help of many will I reach my goal! Even if you cannot donate LIKE and SHARE and most of all your prayers and encouragement are appreciated too!
If you are expecting or have a brand new little one I would love for you to contact me so you can become part of my portfolio building program where you will receive beautiful images at a very reduced cost! Or get a mini-session with a donation of $75 or more.
Wondering if I have what it takes? Here are just a few images from my portfolio. Enjoy and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Please note: This is not an all or nothing campaign but in order to offer the best quality to my clients reward sessions will be scheduled for summer 2015. If I reach my goal sooner I will contact all reward earners and offer an earlier date if they are interested. My summer will fill up fast so those jumpstart donors and above interested in a portrait session (especially newborn) should let me know what month they would like to schedule in so I can give them preference.
