When it comes to my long-term goals for Firefly Photography, I want this business to be rooted in a foundation of heart-centered clientele. Firefly clients are people who let love glow in their families, friendships, neighborhoods, and community -- people who light up over little moments and appreciate life's details. In order to find those people, the majority of my "marketing" relies on simply being that kind of person myself.
Going to networking events and learning about other local businesses, grabbing coffee with community supporters, chatting it up with other women entrepreneurs who inspire me, learning about non-profit groups and the people and stories behind them...
In fact, one of these circumstances is exactly how I got connected with Charlottesville's March of Dimes foundation, and together with the community director, developed the idea to join together for a special that would benefit the foundation's ever-growing presence here. In case you're not familiar with The March Of Dimes, it's a nationwide organization that raises money for research, tools, and awareness to help moms and families prevent and care for babies born prematurely. That definition just barely scratches the surface of what they do, though, so you can read more about their incredible impact here.*
For the month of September, I'm pledging to donate $30 from every session booked to Charlottesville March of Dimes. Though not a mother yet, I am passionate about children, about babies, and about families, and the March of Dimes is a cause that works tirelessly to support all of the above.
I hope that families in Charlottesville and central Virginia will also be moved by their efforts and feel motivated by the fact that when they book with Firefly to capture their own family moments this month-- whether it's for a birthday or back to school, or an upcoming Christmas card-- that they are also contributing to the future happy moments of another family just beginning in our community.
Please share this post with friends or family in the Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Richmond, or surround central Virginia area and let them know of an amazing opportunity to not only get a custom, professional photography experience, but give back to a great cause at the same time.
