I lived in Australia for 5 months in 2015 and while I was there, I was able to travel and see one of the most beautiful countries on our planet. As you know, Australia is in danger and desperately needs our help. AUS became a second home to me but for many it is their only home and it is truly heartbreaking knowing that many have lost their lives, families and homes.
If you're here, that means you're probably already planning on booking a future session with a photographer. Or you may be budgeting for your wedding and don't have the extra funds to give a donation. For those that feel they can't afford to help or don't know how to - this is a great way to show your support and also receive beautiful memories that you know helped make a difference.
WILL HELP THOSE IN NEED
During the month of January, I will be giving 75% of the profits from all sessions booked.
WHERE IS YOUR MONEY GOING?
There are multiple ways to help and many things that Australia is desperately in need of. Your donation will be divided among different organizations that will provide clothing, food, supplies and shelter – as well as to the local fire departments and wildlife rescue.
Victoria, AUS Fire Department
New South Wales, AUS Fire Department
Firefighter Family Support
World Wildlife Fund
Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital
Australia Red Cross
Fire Relief Community Fund
Disaster Recovery Foundation
I will send each client a receipt that details how much of their booking fee went to each organization. Thank you in advance!

“The fires have been devastating for Australia’s wildlife and wild places, as massive areas of native bushland, forests and parks have been scorched,” says Stuart Blanch of WWF-Australia. He’s concerned about the impact of habitat loss on already endangered species like the Kangaroo Island dunnart, the long-footed potoroo, and the regent honeyeater. “Some species may have tipped over the brink of extinction,” Dr. Blanch adds. “Until the fires subside, the full extent of damage will remain unknown.” (source)
