Funding our Dream

"Allow your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day become your profession."

Hi! My name is Anthony, this is my fiancé Kayla and this is our daughter Azalea. We’re starting this funding program in hopes of receiving your contributions to fund our dreams. We are looking to kickstart our first family owned business. With your support this dream of ours can become a reality. Turn an idea into a life long business. My fiancé has had a passion for photography since the age of 10. For over a decade this passion has only intensified. Since becoming a mother to our amazing daughter Azalea it has become evident that this was something we had to pursue and can no longer push to the back burner. If not now then when? We are only given so many opportunities in life and becoming a stay at home mom was the biggest blessing life can give. It allowed my fiancé to rediscover herself and fall in love all over again with photography. Being parents has transformed us into better versions of ourselves. This young girl ignited a fire, a drive, in us both. As every other parent, we want to give her the world then some. My fiancé’s passion for photography, editing, content creation on social media platforms and just all round interest for creating memories was really special to see from my point of view. I saw a genuine love for what she did, therefore, her ambition became mine. I started out using a beginner camera with a lens kit (Sony A6000) and got a hands on experience in taking photos. Needless to say, I loved it. What was once her love for photography soon became our adoration.


Unfortunately, we’re financially limited in investing in our dream of photography and videography. Kayla has a full time job being a staying at home mother for our daughter. As for me I'm a First Responder for Sheriff department 4 counties away from our home. Sadly, transfering to a local Sheriff Department is out of the question due to large pay cut which in turn puts my family at risk. Yes, this is very difficult and has put a strain on me, her, our daughter, and our relationship. I find myself giving my jobs 75% of my time and my family 25%. Working 80+ hour work weeks, 17 hour days, not being home for days on end, not seeing my girls for days every single week. Falling into an endless loop of exhaustion so that I am able to provide for my family. Regardless of our circumstances, we are ever so grateful for what God has supplied us with and we feel blessed beyond words. We try very hard to remain focus and speak positively about our dreams, end goals and overall try to avoid the negativity in hopes of surviving and thriving another day!


With pain and struggle comes prosperity and self-satisfaction. With sacrifice comes strength. With risk comes reward. We have put a business plan in place to attain our very own family business in Photography/Videography. We want to take this leap of faith and invest as much as possible into not only our dream but into ourselves and turn our desires into our reality! We, the 3 of us, would like to thank you in advance for your benefaction. Sincerely. Thank you for reading our story. Thank you for believing in us. If no donations are given, we take prayers! God bless!
