We're all in this together mural in Lansing Michigan


I've been racking my brain for ideas to help people through this confusing and stressful time. As a photographer sometimes I feel like my services are limited. This afternon I went on a long walk with my dog out in the woods and got this neat idea. I'm going to use my photographs to create fun activities for the community. Below will be my first attempt. I hope to get at least one a day, maybe two! Let me know what you think! If you have any other ideas, or would like to see me try something else, let me know using the contact page

Please be safe! 

**If anyone is wanting to offer tips for these services, this self employed artist would fully appreciate it! My paypal account can be found here
