My family and I are always searching for ways we can give back to our community. Lately, the political and social environment involving police officers all over the country has become very tense. Communities all over the country, including our own here in the Silicon Valley, seem to have all become polarized into two groups – those who back the “blue”, and those who support the criminals we ask our police officers to face for us.

My family and I stand firmly in the group that supports our local law enforcement officers – We strongly believe that blue lives matter! I want to do something more than just expressing it online, or putting a thin blue line sticker on our vehicles, or a yellow ribbon on our mailbox, so I’ve decided to offer a special price on my services and products for our local police officers in an effort to show my support for them. They protect us and our families, why wouldn’t I help create wonderful memories for their families?

This offer isn’t limited to police officers – We also value our local firefighters, and our armed forces, so firemen, active duty service members, and active members of the National Guard and Reserve are all being offered this discount.

My life has been touched personally by each of these groups: My husband is a former police officer and is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, and our family was evacuated last summer (2016) during the Uvas Creek Fire. This offer is my way of saying “Thank you” for the sacrifices you make for us every day when you put on that uniform and go to work, and the sacrifices your spouses make when you leave your family to protect mine.

Any police officer (as defined by the LEOSA), any publicly employed fireman, any member of the US Armed Forces (Active, Guard, Reserve, and Coast Guard), or their spouses qualify for this special.

There are several different offers for you to choose from… Or use them all! When you contact me please don’t forget to use the promo code BLUE LIVES MATTER in the subject of your email.

Portrait Play Dates are great to “check me out”, if yo haven’t work with me before, and would like to meet me before you book a full session. They are also great for a family activity that has an interesting twist to it. EVEN HUSBANDS DON’T MIND COMING TO THOSE PLAYDATES AND PARTICIPATE (which can get pretty challenging when we talk about full one hour family

I’ve always wanted to create a fun outdoor event where some of my clients and their kids can get together and socialize. But being who I am, always snapping pictures wherever I go, I decided to add a little twist to those playdates and offer super relaxed mini-sessions at the same time. Those play dates are even better then mini-sessions all photographers offer out there. They are risk-free because there is no fee to attend. As well as participants can only purchase whatever pictures they like via online gallery delivered to them after the playdate, with no minimum purchase requirement.
