Meaningful Moments Mission Statement:  Every High School Senior deserves a meaningful photographic moment. Meaningful Moments Project will ensure the experience of making a Senior Portrait obtainable for everyone.

I wanted to give back to my community especially involving youths of our city through my passion and work, photography.  As I was exposed to the thick of high school seniors and parents wanting to obtain the perfect "Senior Portrait" experience complete with the images, I just knew how I would give back.

I reached out to my son's high school and got the ball rolling.  I had the pleasure of working with most amazing group of high school seniors in a program called, "Community Experience for Career Education" aka "(CE)2.

I photographed 18 students who participated, spending about 30~45 minute shoots with each student.  While shooting, we got to know each other a little and had great fun making truly meaningful and memorable images for all involved.

I want to thank everyone involved in this project who made this possible and to see the excitement and joy reflected on the students faces were truly worth every second of our time dedicated to Meaningful Moments.

The project is now complete with 18 photo shoots, delivery of two digital downloadable files and one 8x12 print to every participant free of charge.
