We believe in the power of a portrait.

 

On a daily basis we create fine portraiture for families from Richmond to Virginia Beach.  But what you may not know is that we are involved with many charities and non-profit organizations on a regular basis, year round.

In fact, we have set a goal for 2018 that we will contribute a quarter million dollars worth of goods and services back to the communities in which we do business.

We are so incredibly lucky to be able to help the following charities and nonprofits in our community and we really believe in the work they are doing.

If you’d like to learn more about these amazing organizations, please feel free to click on their logo and visit their website!  We invite you to find one that speaks to you and find a way to help them.  No gift is too small!

If you don’t see a group on the list below that is actively doing fundraising on a regular basis, please contact us as we would love an introduction to the executive director so that we might discuss the possibility of being a year-round donation partner.

Recently, we had the opportunity to donate a few days of photography to our friends at An Achievable Dream.  This school is so special, so unique, and we wanted to capture some of that for them.  Every morning, elementary students are greeted by Fort Eustis soldiers and middle/high schoolers by local law enforcement officers. They must shake hands with them and members of the faculty and say “Good Morning”.  They recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem.  Elementary students have Yoga and Etiquette classes.  They “speak green”…teaching them how to communicate effectively and prepare them for a future in the business world.  They have a 100% graduation rate, with 90% going on to college, and 10% serving in the military.  An Achievable Dream instills self-respect, respect for others, and provides a social, academic, and moral education. Through a challenging, disciplined environment, they enable each child to develop an achievable dream that will light their way to success and life as a productive citizen.  This video highlights just a very few of our favorite images and we couldn’t be more proud to help them spread the message of the good work they do.
