Simply Encourage is not just about photography and Photo Booth fun! We believe in connecting with organizations we believe in and we are so glad to be rooted in our own community. We have partnered with many organizations throughout the years to help bring awareness to their cause. We would like to share some of those with you.
We are members of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep or NILMIDS. This ministry is worth every heartache! My first time capturing the beauty of a baby and his momma and daddy in their final moments with one another I knew I needed to be apart of this organization. I have done too many photo sessions like this but will never stop because it is such a gift to be able to bless these families with memories of their child.
We are apart of Abilene Young Professionals. This is a wonderful way to network in our community. We love working with other young professionals in our area and helping our community grow.
We are a member of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce. We love our community and believe this is am amazing way to stay plugged in with community events. We are honored to participate in yearly events with the chamber as they bring our community together.
We are also GRACE Museum members. Not only is this a wonderful place to take your family as they explore their creative side. It is also a beautiful place for those who love art and history to learn. We frequent the Grace for parties, receptions, and other events as a business but we also visit just for play. There are many things to do here in Abilene TX and this is a must!
Elegantees: We have been a photography resource for elegantees for over 4 years and have enjoyed watching this amazing company grow. We are currently working on their commercial photography in the studio and are excited about the future of this incredible organization and its purpose! The founder of Elegantees Katie Martinez lives in New York and has a mission to help provide jobs to women rescued from sex trafficking in Napal! Please visit Elegantees to view more or to support the growth of this company and the freedom of rescued women. Make sure you share her products with others as they are not only beautiful but comfortable as well!
