Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve shared any images to the blog!  Oops.  It’s not because we haven’t been taking any images, in fact my camera has been smoking!  I’ll do better sharing all that’s been going on, starting with this post. Many people know that our whole family had the opportunity of…

This past weekend, Matt and I traveled to New Orleans for the annual Professional Photographers of America conference.  It’s always a great time to see those friends we only get to hang out with once a year, explore the huge trade show, and take classes from some of our industry greats.  And since this year…

  • Grateful - I’ve had the privilege to work with Op Smile in a business capacity the last 4 years. They are a classy organization top to bottom. I can’t express in words how grateful I am to have been introduced to a organization of people that gives me such hope for this planet.

  • Erin Golan - Angie, what a touching video. As you said, I am wiping my tears away. This organization is so blessed to have people like you and your husband contributing the way you have, as are the countless families whose lives you have changed. May God continue to bless your business so that you can continue to make a difference.

  • Mike Incognito - great pics!

This guy.  This guy is what started our love and appreciation for the amazing charity called Operation Smile. Conner is our nephew, who almost 10 years ago, was born with a cleft lip.

    I remember that morning when Conner was born like it was yesterday. The Doctor went quiet and Todd and I looked at each other as though we knew she was going to say something was terribly wrong. When the words, “Todd….Lisa…. Conner has a little bit of a Cleft Lip” were said we were in disbelief not really knowing what that all meant, but once we saw his face and he laid on my chest I knew that it was going to be alright because we live in the greatest country in the world and we have amazing doctors who can fix this. Conner is one of the lucky children that can go on with his life and no one even knows that he was born with a cleft lip. But as Angie said so many of these children need help and don’t have the means to have there palate or lip fixed and that is why Operation Smile is amazing, and I am so thankful for Matt and Angie for what they do everyday and that they have the ability to tell hundreds of people about this organization, they are changing peoples lives everyday! Thank you.

  This October will mark our fourth year of supporting an incredibly worthwhile charity called Operation Smile.  Through PPA Charities, hundreds of studios across the country come together to do something very big….help create smiles for children who need them most.  Click play on the slideshow below to learn more, and please join the cause….

Did you know that a donation of only $240 can heal a child’s cleft lip, giving him a chance at a normal, happy life? Did you also know that there are thousands of children all around the world where this mere $24o stands between them and the childhood they all deserve? Did you know that…
