June Watermelons For Sale

Do you have a garden growing watermelons? Well, if you have some for sale I know some children that would love to eat them!

These digital composites are such fun! Even if you do not have a garden growing watermelons, it is such a timely photo of a summer favorite fruit. This was the favorite digital composite from the June downtown market.

Each month through October I will have digital composite images available with three different backdrops fitting to the month. These will be available to photograph at the Swanton Downtown Market (see below for info).

Conquering CHD Mini Photo Sessions

July 16th, 2022 from 5-8pm

Congenital Heart Defects/Disease is close to my heart, but really my daughters heart. She was born with a CHD. I am so excited to give back to the organization that does so much for families with CHD.

These mini sessions are pay what you can, where 50 % of what you pay for the session goes back to the local Conquering CHD organization. The sessions are located at St. Pauls Lutheran Church 428 N Erie St, Toledo, OH 43604. The heart mural is on the rear of the building in the parking lot. Sessions are 15 minutes long and scheduled back to back from 5pm-8pm. 3 web-size digital images are provided with the session. There may be additional images from your session available for purchase separately through your gallery.
