Be Photographed!

Every once in a while you meet a genuinely GOOD person. A person who seems perfect, but not to a fault. They are close to God. They are smart. They serve and serve. They seem to be at east with all the things I struggle with. They are kind. They aren’t sarcastic. They don’t let laundry pile up. They are organized. They are financially savvy. They exercise every day. They eat healthy. They want to change the world. The people that keep people like me going. The people you want to be like. I was roommates in New York with one of these people. Her name is Jenny Reeder. She has recently been diagnosed with cancer. She can’t do a lot of the things she used to. And, frankly, she needs help.

I want to help.
I want you to help.
I’m willing to offer you something.
During the month of June Bee Photography would like to travel the USofA and take wonderful photographs for EACH person or family who would like them. This will be at 50% of their regular fee. You will get ALL rights to the images. There is a lovely pdf of prices and options that can be sent to you. The proceed of these shoots will go to help Jenny pay for her mounting and extensive medical bills. Also, if your town is not listed–I am happy to travel there as long as there are at least 5 committed photo shoots. Thank you so much in advance for your consideration!

Jenny recently wrote a small reflection on her experience and the love and outpouring she’s received from so many people around the globe.
“I feel the love. It fills me, straightens my bending, strengthens my weary bones, and fuels my exhaustion. I feel the support and find purpose outside of my bed. But most of all, to all of you, far and wide, I have learned something that will stay with me the whole rest of my long life. Marjorie Hinckley once said, “Oh, how we need each other.” Thank you for being here for me in this crazy experience. I will be here for you.”

    I’m in. Also, you can stay with us when you are in Philadelphia, assuming that I am here in the month of June (we are traveling to Idaho for several weeks in June and July, but the tickets aren’t purchased yet so we don’t have exact dates).

    Kate, can you send me your email?

    How is the first of June for you? Also, Idaho will be on the list too!

    Any chance you can make it to Portland before June 22nd to take pictures of the Raynes clan? 🙂 If not, there’s a woman in my ward who is good friends with Jenny Reeder and maybe the two of us can get 5 families together here in Denver.

    oh.. wow, D’Arcy, your photography is simply stunning (I know, I’ve told you that before, but wow.)

    and what an impressive project. Good luck! If you add a detour to AZ *please* let me know!

  5. D'Arcy says:

    Oh yes! I AM adding a detour to AZ!!!

  6. Anne Olsen says:

    We are in the Portland Area and would be up for it. How much are the regular costs?

  7. Alisa says:

    Great idea, D’Arcy!

    Just for privacy, please don’t leave your email in your post. We can grab your email address that you enter upon posting and send it to Bee Photography for you to be contacted.

    Thanks!

    Love Jenny, love you. I’m thrilled you’ll be snapping pics of my and my baby belly in May.

  9. Gwen O. says:

    Love it! I am in NJ and will be getting in contact with you. I had a baby girl in October and have yet to have some professional pictures taken of her.

    I have a sister in law in DC and will be spreading the word.

    I need some professional-looking headshots (that is, me looking professional) and I’d love some “just for fun” photos too. I may not have a fiance or kids to pose with, but I should still get some fabulous pictures taken!

    I’m in DC and count Jenny Reeder among my good friends. Thank you for offering your time and talents to help her.

    Marni–I agree! Send D’Arcy your email address so she can contact you directly!
