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 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
