My fiance has made the decision to join the Marines Corps, which is a decision that has been in the works for quite some time now. After two years of trying to convince me, I finally gave him my blessing to join, as this is his last chance (he is now 28) and I know it has been weighing heavily on his heart for quite a while. He is now scheduled to leave for boot camp on September 23, 2013, a month after we get married. This was a very tough decision, but I recognize the importance of following one's passion and I am extremely proud of him for doing just that.
I have been wanting to contribute to a charity through my work for quite some time now; however, I wasn't quite sure what charity I wanted to participate in. I now know I want my business to make a difference in the lives of those who serve our country as it is very dear to my heart.
Both the Operation Homefront Charity and the Wounded Warrior Project provide support and emergency financial aid to military families and wounded veterans. For Military families who book me for a 2013 shoot, they will receive 25% off of the session of their choice (including weddings), and all profit after cost will be donated to one of these two charities. I hope that I can make an impact, whether its small or large, on the lives of those who need it.
If you are, or know of, a Military family, spouse, child, etc please contact me for the above opportunity.
