I have compiled a small list of fantastic non-profits that need your help. I challenge my fellow photographers to pick an organization (or more than one) and donate your time and talent for a wonderful cause! It can be as simple as once or on a regular basis. Please check out these fabulous organizations.

Help Portrait: A grass-roots movement and challenge to photographers to help out anyone in need with a memory to last a lifetime.

Flashes of Hope: An organization that uses photographers to help build self-esteem in children with terminal illnesses.

The Heart Gallery: An organization that uses photographers to take portraits of children to connect with perspective adoptive families.

Tiny Sparrow Foundation: Photographers help through taking pictures of terminally ill children and their families.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep: Last chance precious portraits are taken of dying infants and their families.

Photographers without Borders: Professional photographers donate their images from across the world of people and landscapes to be sold and proceeds benefit the locations the images were taken in.

Creative Cares: An organization that connects photographers and artists to non-profit organizations.

Heartsspeak: Photographers of all skill levels are needed to take portraits of adoptable animals in overpopulated shelters at risk of being euthanized.

Operation Love Reunited: Photographers take pictures of military families who's loved ones are soon to be deployed or reunited after a long separation.

There are many other wonderful non-profit organizations that are local to your area or not listed. Getting involved with these organizations is a great way to do something awesome and feel great about sharing your talents!

The Maternal Lens

What a day! I am super giddy about a recent photo placing first in The Maternal Lens contest! It was a complete honor to be submitting my work along-side some photographers that I adore. I am greatful to be chosen.

Dell Mobility Challenge

Beautiful Moment Photography is honored to have been part of a winning team for the Dell Mobility Challenge. A great video with a great cause! I am sure that $50,000 will come in handy for such a wonderful organization like Partnership in Community Living!
