If you've only visited my Facebook page recently, you may think all I do is take pictures of beautiful half-naked women (or as my daughter likes to call them - "underwear pictures"). I had such an amazing response to my introduction to boudoir photography that I have definitely been busy with them! But spring is upon us, which means it is again time for Easter pictures! This year, however, there is something different about them.
I have been a part of the YMCA of Pierce & Kitsap Counties for over 15 years. At first, I was only a patron, using their gym to train for fitness competitions and stay in shape during my time on the Sea Gals. But for the past 6 years, my role with the YMCA changed to being a dance instructor. It is a wonderful place to work because our mission is to help others, whether it is to get healthy, provide learning and recreational opportunities to families, or create a safe place for people to take care of basic needs like showering and getting exercise. One of the biggest goals for the YMCA is not turning anyone away and providing a more positive environment for children and teenagers. This can only be done by generous contributions from our community. Our biggest fundraising effort is happening right now during our annual campaign! With money raised, the YMCA can provide financial assistance, offer attendance to Camp Seymore, and also provide a safe place for teenagers to hang out during their weekly Late Nite events. This year, I pledged to raise $1000 and will donate ALL proceeds from my Easter Mini-Sessions to the 2014 YMCA Annual Campaign! I really want to raise this money, not only to help the Y, but also because my class - the only hip hop class offered at the Tacoma Center Y - will get a banner that will hang prominently in the gym! I know that sounds trivial, but I want to show that a small class can make a big difference! I would be so proud!
Just like last year, the Easter photos will include baby chicks! I already have 9 grown chickens that lay either white or brown eggs. But because of my selfish desire to have blue & green eggs as well, I have decided to get a few Ameraucana chicks. What a perfect opportunity for another cute Easter mini-session! But not only chicks - I will also have a bunny this year!! It really doesn't get much cuter - chicks and a bunny to accompany your adorable kiddos! So, if you want some Easter photos, spring pictures, or just a great deal for family portraits, please join me for my Easter mini-session event - March 29 & 30. For $50 you will get 5-10 digital photos and 1-8x10 print. Contact me to book your 30 minute session!
