We’re all busier these days with family, work, and social events. So finding time to give back can be a challenge. We found that one of the best ways to add charitable actions to a busy work-life schedule is by directly including it in our lives while in stride. Finding ways to give back does not have to be a chore, it can be fun. For instance, next time you have a party or random family event, ask guests to bring donations for a worthy cause of your choice and then get some guests to help deliver the goods. It's that simple, and why not? Bringing friends and family together for a party is a great excuse to contribute to any charity. And on the flip side bringing friends and family together for a charity is a great excuse to have a party. Don't underestimate the impact you can all make when coming together, giving back, having fun, taking pics, and spreading the word. And of course we want you to take pictures, whether using PhotoSesh or doing it yourself, just get the pics! Because charity is much more contagious when the fun is visible to more people. There's a lot of good samaritans out there, but let's be honest, some of us need these fun reminders and motivations to help more people take action. #DoGood #Giving #GetPics #PhotoSesh #Charity #CP4Homeless

March of Dimes - March for Babies
A FIGHTING CHANCE FOR EVERY BABY
March of Dimes has an initiative to give a fighting chance for every baby. On May 1, 2015 we had the pleasure of contributing to this worthy cause with a warm invitation from Sabrina Abramson, the Family Teams Chair of the Bergen County March for Babies. This walk was to support programs that help moms during their pregnancies and to fund research to find causes and prevention to various complications that exist. Sabrina herself is a mom to a heart angel and does a lot to offer support to programs like this. We and many others walked for Sabrina and Justin Abramson's group Ella's Fellas named after their heart angel Ella Marie.
For more information on Sabrina, her husband Justin, Ella and their family's story, please read more on this donation page HERE.
We were honored to contribute and play a small role in this fundraising event for such a wonderful cause. PhotoSesh credits go to Ellen Bedrosian and Danny Graham

Great time with great friends at the PhotoSesh reveal party! Had a blast. And the good times were captured by 2 wonderful people within the PhotoSesh community; Ellen and Sean! Some cool iPhone shots mixed with DSLR captures, and even some underwater shots. 5 stars! Thanks everyone for the essentials and food donations. They will be going towards various care packages for the homeless and will be extremely appreciated. Generosity is abundant among our circle of friends and community leaders. We are all so busy with family, work, and social events that finding the time to give back can be a challenge. We found the best way to add charitable actions to our busy work-life schedule is to directly include it in our lives while in stride.
