Hurricane Matthew | St Augustine Photographer

October 20, 2016  •  4 Comments

On October 7 Hurricane Matthew Cat 4 (a category 5 at one time ) made its destructive path up the east coast of Florida (after ripping thru Haiti and the islands). Like MANY in my area we evacuated,I was in tears not knowing what we would return too.  We were so lucky to return home to only two trees on the back of our house and the fence down. The least of my worries! 

So many of dear friends lost almost all they owned in up to 6 feet of flooding! My island is in such devastation . But we have such a strong loving community . #staugustinestrong has become our motto!

As many of you know me and my older kids have been doing our best to help friends and many who flooded . Removing precious belongings to the curb. Cleaning debris, removing downed trees, making meals and so on. 

This is normally the busiest time of year as families book their holiday sessions. But understandable not on the minds of those that lost their belongings and homes. 

Photography has ceased basically which is part of my livelihood as a single mom ( and doula ) I want to give back to those that lost everything or almost everything. I will be offering photo sessions to those that suffered such losses . That I will verify . 

It will be DONATION only . I will give my time and love to you . You will receive 1-3 (more depending on family needs) digital images . You can then, when back in your homes or new locations , order beautiful discounted prints from my website!

I am still booking fall sessions for the holidays . I still have special locations that are still in good shape to hold sessions. Sadly my favorite place is still closed . 

I also have gift certificates available if you know of anyone you would like to bless with a photo session.

I'm so glad that you came out of it safely. I have family down there, right on the beach as well, and it was scary to watch from Ohio and not be able to do anything. Kudos to you for helping others. <3
