There's nothing better than working with clients who are also friends who are also family who also just let you do your thing while they do theirs. We love these guys dearly, and it was such a treat for me to be invited back into their home to capture a little slice of their life right now.
EPCAMR is an amazing non-profit organization dedicated to rehabilitating the land and economy in Northeast Pennsylvania, near Wilkes-Barre, that was ravaged by the decline of the coal industry. The group is working incredibly hard to clean up the messes left behind, to bring back the area's economic dependence, to re-engage residents, and to earn federal and state support for all of these efforts. I strongly encourage you to spend a few minutes over on their website learning about their cause, and to look for ways you can lend a hand - even the smallest bit helps. Many thanks to Peak Design for connecting me to this project!
This sweet family snagged one of my mini sessions to benefit Every Mother Counts earlier this year, as a Mother's Day gift for grandma loved being able to give back while bringing part of a multi-generational family story to life in photos.
