As a business owner, I believe wholeheartedly in using my gifts to be a blessing to others. I want what I do to not only serve my amazing clients, but to directly serve those in need around the world.
That’s why 10% of every single portrait session and 5% of weddings booked with me will go toward one of the following organizations that I’ve had the honor of working with personally while serving overseas as a missionary. If you would like your portion of payment to go to one of these ministries in particular, just let me know at your time of booking!
Beacon of Hope stands out to me as the hardest place for me to leave. I fell in love with the kids we worked with there, and saw how Beacon of Hope absolutely lives up to its name. It operates as a Boy’s Home, but it’s main purpose is to equip and propel needy young men into a successful, fulfilling and sustainable life, free from the bondage of poverty that is so apparent in their country (58% of children live below the poverty line). Most of the boys who stay there do not have a father or anyone to care for them and guide their steps. Beacon of Hope provides not only food, shelter and education, but a high priority is put on teaching them responsibility, social skills, and the Love of Christ.

Human trafficking is, sadly, one of the biggest issues facing women today—especially in Cambodia. Often sold by their own families into the sex industry, young girls and women face not only great danger, but every form of psychological, emotional, sexual, physical, verbal and mental abuse. Daughters of Cambodia is an incredible organization that I was blessed to visit in person and witness firsthand the incredible difference they make in reversing the damage done to human trafficking victims, both male and female. They provide a practical way for them to get out of the industry they were forced into by giving them skills, jobs, counseling, medical care, social skills and more. They successfully equip them to solve their own problems within their own cultural and social context so the changes are resilient, eternal and sustained.
