Sustainable Practices


As a nature lover, you may be curious about my efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle for us all.



In my home office, I use Trello for my to-do lists as well as Google docs and email to help cut down paper use.


Rechargeable batteries are used with all my equipment.


I also have compact fluorescent energy-saving light bulbs throughout my space.


Email correspondence and Skype/Zoom meetings cut down on carbon footprint.


In-person locations and meetings can be located close to tart trails or BATA routes so that mass transit or bikes/feet can be used. As well as outdoor socially distanced conversations.


Recycled ink cartridges for document printing are from a local supplier in Traverse City.


I like to use both restored and salvaged props for sessions when they are required. Temporary props are usually offered to the client or donated.


Custom albums are eco-friendly both in ink and paper content.

Giving Back and being a part of the Community


Giving back is an important part of my business and my life. Currently, I am looking for a local project to donate my time.

In the past, I have worked with the Women's Resource Center, TC Alzheimers Association, Wexford Habitat for Humanity, and the TC STEP program. Nationally, I donate to the ACLU.

Internationally, I donate profits to KIVA and the ICT.

I'd love to hear about your
