Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

This is a work in progress. Please stay tuned.

These images were made just before the start of the current school year. All of the kids pictured here are Foster kids and they all reside in the same home. The kids volunteered to model in a back-to-school fashion show, hosted by Treehouse, highlighting all of the clothing donated to their free store, the Wearhouse, which serves 2,800 foster kids every year.

Treehouse is an organization that provides services to foster kids that they otherwise would not likely receive. School supplies and clothes, sports equipment, bikes, camp, music lessons, tutoring and college prep. Please consider Treehouse when the coordinator of your company's annual fundraising effort asks for suggestions for this year's recipient.

As a photographer and Foster Care Alum, it has been a long held dream of mine to use my visual aptitude to positively impact the lives of our Foster Youth. This was my first experience in living out that dream - but certainly not the last. There is so much work to be done.

One of the many things that Foster Kids often don't have are family pictures, school pictures and yearbooks. I fully intend to change that and that will become my mission.

In the meantime, I thank you for visiting.

Most sincerely,
