4th Annual Holiday Mini Sessions for Charity - Saturday December 5, 2020
2020 - What a year!
For the last 4 years, I have been offering holiday mini sessions for charity.
I hemmed and hawed about what we would do for 2020, would we offer these sessions? Would we postpone and try again in 2021.
After a lot of thought, I decided to move forward. The sessions will look slightly different this year; first, they will only include children (sorry mom and dad). Second, we will have a lot of safety guidelines in place (temperature checks, and masks up until photo time). Third, sessions will be short, only 20 minutes.
While this year has been scary, and anxiety ridden, I believe with preparation and safety, we can make this a success, and give back to the people who need it most.
In the past, we have donated thousands of dollars to organizations like Memorial Sloan Kettering, Step Up Women's Network, the Puerto Rican Hurricane relief fund, Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, and many others.
This year, all proceeds will be divided amongst two amazing organizations:
Behind The Scenes - An organization established for the entertainment technology industry, providing support during times of need due to serious illness or injury.
Covenant House - For thousands of young people facing homelessness during COVID-19, the answer is Covenant House.
Sessions will take place at my studio, located at 5030 Broadway (at 213th Street)
Your gallery will be sent within 7 days from your session. You will be able to choose 3 of your favorite photos from your session (don't worry you will have them in time for the holidays!)
All guests must wear masks up until their session, and they are in the studio.
All children will have their temperatures checked prior to coming into the studio. If child has a fever, client will be asked to leave, and their fee will be returned.
