I volunteer my time and talents in several charitable endeavors.
Knowing firsthand what it’s like to lose a cherished person, I am involved with Beaumont Hospital. They call me to photograph babies who are on life support and babies who have passed. People ask me, “How do I do it?” But, really my question is “How do I not photograph these babies?!” They are the only pictures that these parents will have of their baby. Closure after tragedy is elusive, difficult, and takes time. My intention is that my photographs will alleviate some of their pain.
Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network - This organization is very close to my heart. They honor the end of a person’s life with dignity and comfort. It is a gift to be able to say goodbye to a loved one.
In addition, I also support the Haven Project, Kadima, and GVAWL (Gunnison Valley Animal Welfare League).
