When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.
Kari Bedford Photography was founded, in large part, on the idea that giving back to our community is one of the privileges that comes with owning a small business. We give back because contributing to the common good helps us stay connected to our values, encourages prosperity in others and sets an example for future generations.
Every opportunity to give back is a reminder that kindness matters, people matter and wealth is not merely defined by financial gain. We give because we can.
