My Students

I have the most creative, amazing, quick-witted, talented students who are pleading for a chance to shine! My students come from a large military town and transition frequently. My students deserve the best, and I hope you will choose to partner with our class to make that happen.

Our students come from primarily single-family households, living in poverty-level conditions.

They are deserving of the best life has to offer and, yet, frequently are exposed to the worst. They often deal with situations that many adults would have problems with.

My Project

We are so fortunate to serve so many amazing students whose parents serve in the military. Being within 10 miles of the largest training base in US makes for a lot of shifting around. In that shifting, we know families forget to get updated portraits.

Our photography club wants to hold a weekend session where military families at our school will be able to come and get their photo taken, printed and framed for free.

We need your help though. In order to give them the best we need a lens that is capable of delivering that goodness to these families. The 85mm is the perfect focal length our students need to photograph the amazing families at our school. With your help we can make this dream a reality. A reality that families can cherish for a lifetime.
