Nonviolent Communication Santa Cruz

Back in October, I donated a family portrait session for Nonviolent Communication Santa Cruz’s annual silent auction. NVC is such an awesome organization. They provide opportunities to learn lifelong skills for communicating with compassion, fostering mutual respect, and resolving conflicts peacefully. They work with schools, organizations, places of worship, families, and businesses just to name a few. They provide mediation, counseling, information, and ongoing workshops and classes for the community. This is such an amazing resource for our community and I was honored to be a very small part of their annual fundraiser.

Thank you, beautiful family for generously supporting such a worthwhile cause. It was an honor to meet and photograph all of you!

To learn more about NVC Santa Cruz, check out their website or blog. I love their logo, a hand making a peace sign. We could all use a little more peace in our lives, no?
