I believe that one of the most important aspects of running a business is that of giving back to others.
One way I chose to do this in my own business was by applying to become an affiliate volunteer photographer for two national-level organizations (Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and The Magic Hour Foundation) and one local one (Liberty Hospice in Dunn, NC).
I'm happy to say that as of this week, I am now an affiliate volunteer photographer for all three.
The application process wasn't easy; it required portfolio reviews, interviews, a background check, medical testing, and ongoing training, among other things - but it has been worth every single hurdle.
Grateful to be a part of these organizations, and looking forward to serving the families and individuals who they support!
