Giving Back

At Christina Rush Photography, we believe in the power of giving back—using our lens to capture moments that matter and create lasting memories for those who need it most. Our commitment to philanthropy is deeply rooted in personal beliefs and a passion for making a positive impact on the lives of others.

A Decade and a half of gratitude

Military Homecomings

For over 15 years, we've dedicated our time and talent to the military community, capturing the emotional reunions of brave service members with their families. While volunteering with programs like Operation Love Reunited and Welcome them Home, we realized the unique needs of our military clients weren't fully met. That's why, independently, we offer complimentary coverage of military homecomings, ensuring these special moments are immortalized without any cost to our clients.

Documenting the Journey


We were proud participants in the Red Thread Sessions, a program that supported families on their adoption journeys. Although the program has concluded, our commitment to adoptive families remains unwavering. Families embarking on the beautiful journey of adoption can choose from various options under our give-back program, including homecoming documentation, courthouse sessions (upon approval), and a family session within two weeks of adoption finalization.

We are currently curating a new portfolio for adoptions.

A Heartfelt mission with nilmdts

Capturing Love in Times of Loss

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS) holds a special place in our hearts. After years of contemplation, we've recently taken a crucial step by joining as a Digital Retouch Artist. This incredible program provides parents experiencing the loss of a baby with the gift of professional portraiture. As we continue to support grieving families, our future plans include actively photographing for NILMDTS. Our journey through personal loss has fueled our determination to be a source of strength for others during their most challenging times.

Beyond the Lens

Community Engagement

Beyond these specialized programs, we actively contribute to our local community. Volunteering at community events, participating in Boy Scouts, Youth Sports, and School events allows us to extend our impact beyond the photography studio. We reserve a portion of our schedule each year to take on additional charitable projects. If you have an event or cause that aligns with our mission, we encourage you to reach out at
