I’ll admit that a big part of the reason I fell in love with photography was because it meant I could spend my days outside. From a young age, my one of deepest purposes has been to protect and improve the planet and the ecosystems that give it life (I originally planned to be a biologist). Now, as a business owner, I feel a responsibility to do something more to contribute to preserving the beautiful natural backdrops that we are so fortunate to have around us. Through donations to the National Forest Foundation, three trees will be planted in the United States for every session booked.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well-being, and create jobs for social impact. I’m thrilled to have reforestation as an integral part of Jill Carmel Photography’s business model!
