When I became a photographer I knew that I wanted to utilize my passion to make a positive impact in the world. Throughout my career I have volunteered for non-profits, photographed children with disabilities, babies in the NICU, and animal sanctuaries. But I want to do more. I want to have a greater impact on our beautiful planet. Nature is where I find my peace, joy and inspiration. I want my business to reflect my passion for the environment. It breaks my heart to see what's happening to our planet. I truly believe we have the power to change the outcome, and the time to act is now.
Trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water, control flooding and erosion, and help replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. Reforestation revitalizes dry arid soil, absorbs carbon dioxide and provides oxygen. It also provides people with wood for fuel, fruit trees that provide food, fodder for livestock, and jobs. I am very excited about my partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects. Eden reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests in Haiti, Madagascar, Ethiopia, and Nepal by employing local villagers to plant millions of trees every year.
As this new venture grows, I would love to find more non-profits so that I can have a global and local impact. Please contact me if you know of an organization planting trees!
