sessions with purpose

“A tear contains an ocean. A photographer is aware of the tiny moments in a persons life that reveal greater t r u t h s .” – Anonymous

I love creating art through my photography! And in addition to capturing amazing memories, dramatic + emotive images, and sharing stories, I wanted to give my sessions MORE purpose!

So, I started #SessionsWithPurpose to raise money for charities & non-profit organizations help them continue to do the amazing work they do! Together, we can pull together to do some AMAZING things, just by doing something that you would normally do anyway!

Each month Sugar Plum Creative will be raising money for a non-profit organization by donating a portion of all photography sessions to do my part to pay it forward. Will you join me??

Through September 30th, in honor of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month,
Sugar Plum Creative is supporting the

Feel Better Foundation

The Feel Better Foundation is an official 501 c3 non-profit that works with families to create meaningful legacies for their living or passed children.


Legacies are lasting ways to honor your living or deceased child and their battle, while bettering the world or your community. A legacy can be any act of kindness, support, or community outreach. Some families choose to dedicate hospital wagons in their child’s honor, others wish to plant a community garden.

Some families even decide to host events to gain research money for their child’s disease, condition, or cancer. Legacies thrive in a variety of forms and are developed to represent your warrior and their strength.

In other words, depending on the legacy built, families often use this GIFT as an opportunity to heal, gain closure or acceptance, fight for awareness, give back to those battling, or raise funds for their desired entity. 


If you’re ready for some amazing new photos AND want to make a difference, just book a session with Sugar Plum Creative! That’s it! No extra steps!
