A Season to GIVE: An Auction for the Gray Family

Tonight I heard the news that a great person and friend from high school, Troy Gray, ended his battle with Leukemia. Both he and his wife Kelly are dear people and my heart is heavy as I think of them and their two sweet babies. I have so many great memories of Troy and I know he will be dearly missed by many. 

Life really is SO precious and SO fragile. Every second of it. And this very reason is one of the main ones why I love my job and am so very grateful I can capture memories and moments that can be remembered forever. 

(Troy & Kelly with their two sweet babies Garrison & Aven. October 2011.)

And in the spirit of this holiday season and in the memory and honor of a wonderful person and his dear family he leaves behind, I am auctioning off a family photo shoot to the highest bidder (must be in either Phoenix or San Diego).

 If you would like to bid please email me at with the amount of your bid. The auction will be silent and will go until Wednesday, December 21st at 11 pm pst. 
ALL PROCEEDS will go directly to Kelly Gray. 

In return for your precious donation you will get:

One full family photo shoot
1-2 hours of photography time at up to 2 locations
All high resolution images from shoot + selection of professionally retouched images on a disk with all printing rights included (25-35 professionally retouched)
Black and white and color versions of each retouched image
One 11x14 professional print mounted on styrene

Once again, please email me with any questions and with your bids at 

And if you aren't able to bid but would like to help please share the offer with anyone and everyone!
