It’s nearly time to start getting ready for fall family photos, but before we jump into that, let’s do some good and have some fun all at the same time! Read through to the end of this post to see how you can donate to a great cause and be entered to win a family session with the complete digital collection of your images!
If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed over the past few years that I have volunteered my time photographing shows for North Texas Performing Arts. And, if you’ve read my about me page, you know that theatre has been a big part of my life for a very long time. I have captured kids on stage performing in School of Rock for Frisco Youth Theatre, Seussical and Shrek for Plano Children’s Theatre, Into the Woods in my home town for McKinney Youth Theatre, and so many others. Here are just a few of my favorite photos from some of my favorite shows. I promise I tried to narrow it down.
As you can see, those kids are having a blast on stage! It truly brings me joy to photograph them being amazing up there and doing their thing.
I currently serve on the McKinney Youth Theatre management board as the Marketing Director. McKinney Youth Theatre has grown so much over the past TEN fabulous years, that we have literally run out of space for our kids and their productions. We have been renting event space for each performance over the years and we desperately need a place to call home, a building of our own. After searching for over two years for a space near downtown McKinney, we found a great location in Fairview. The only problem is we don’t quite have enough money to turn this retail space into a theatre. We are so close to our goal, but we need help raising the rest. These kids have worked so hard at shows selling cookies, t-shirts, necklaces, and all sorts of goodies. I decided I would help them out and donate a session to help encourage everyone to donate to the capital campaign.
For every $50 donation you make to the new Fairview Youth Theatre Capital Campaign, you will be entered to win a full Family Session with Nicki Behm Photography and the session will include the Digital Collection, a $1500 total value. Every $50 counts as an entry, so if you donate $150, your name will be entered three times. All you have to do is click on the link to donate and select my name as the team member when you donate. I will choose a winner on Monday, August 1st at 8PM. Check back here for the blog post announcing the winner.
All three of my kids love theatre and that’s where my heart is too. I love watching them grow on stage, gaining confidence and self-esteem while forming friendships with kids of all ages. Theatre celebrates differences. Everyone belongs. Please help us build these kids a new theatre.
Thanks so much!
