Portraits in the Park

Guess what? We have our first adoption fundraiser coming up in a couple weeks!  I had fun making these postcards the other day, and thought I’d mostly just post these to get the information out.  We will be doing a brief photo shoot at a nearby park to start raising funds for our Homestudy.

If you happen to live in Wisconsin, we’d love to see you there. Pauquette is a lovely park, and it’s a great time of year to get some shots for Mother’s Day, as a couple, a single, friends, or whatever. Josh will be taking the photos and I’ll be assisting.

For those who don’t know, Josh and I both have a bit of a background in Photography (He has a minor and has taken pictures all over the world, and I spent much time working at a studio/ was an art major). We’ve recently done a decent amount of photography with our web and design business as well.  So, we thought this would be a fun opportunity to use our skills, give back to those around, and save a little towards our first phase.

Hope to see you there!

We also plan on writing a post soon answering specific questions concerning funds and giving.  We’ve had a lot of people ask, “Why so expensive?” and “How can we give? (and yes, any giving can be tax-deductible)”
