announcement: the school sessions


I have some really exciting news :) 

A friend of mine (actually, this girl was my inspiration to become a photographer way back when!) has embarked on the most amazing project. Many of you will have already heard of Jamie Delaine or maybe you've seen some of her beautiful wedding and engagement work on Pinterest...

Along with her husband, Randy, they've created The School Sessions:  
The School Sessions is a one-day event across the globe on Sunday, April 12, 2015 to raise $200,000 to build a school in Haiti. Portrait photographers can sign up online to photograph one (or more!) portrait sessions and donate 100% of fees to The School Sessions. 

$200,000 will buy land and build a ten-classroom school for 220 students. The previous building was destroyed by the 2010 earthquake and these children (ages 3 to 16) are in need of a earthquake and hurricane-proof school to learn and grow. 

By empowering hundreds of photographers across the world with a simple way to give back, together we will meet our goal. Join us in Making Haiti’s Future Bright. 

I am really excited to be one of the photographers who is helping to raise the funds needed to build this school. 

I think what Jamie and Randy have put together is simply amazing. I've been in awe of them since the launch of The School Sessions, and their message about putting their business to good use. 



I'll be offering THREE MINI SESSIONS on April 12th to support the cause. A mini session can be used for family photos, an engagement, maternity, even headshots. Totally up to you. 

DETAILS:

DATE: Sunday April 12th, 2015
TIME: 9:30am, 10:00am, 10:30am
LOCATION: To be determined closer to the Spring
COST: $250
PHOTOS: 25-30 edited images in an online gallery for download to your computer.

100% of the proceeds will go to The School Sessions, and instead of sending in a payment, you'll be donating to their website and showing proof of your donation by email.






In order to grab one of these three mini sessions, please fill out the contact form on my website :) 

If you would like to find out about some other ways to donate, please visit The School Sessions' website. It's so beautifully designed (Jamie wouldn't have it any other way, that's for sure!).
