Giving Back

Many people probably know February as Black History Month and March as Women’s History Month but did you know that April is National Volunteer Month?

In order to celebrate this month, I am offering my photography services to Boobalooza, a fun day of events at Gold Key Racquet Club on Sunday April 15 from 9 AM to 1 PM, to benefit the John C. Lincoln Breast Health and Research Center.

For the rest of 2012 and beyond, I have also committed to donating my photography services to a local cause. Each month, I will provide my service free of charge to a person, group or cause that makes our community a better place.

Suggestions are welcome! Please comment below or click on the “Contact” tab above and send me a message if you have an idea for a service project.

Gold Key Racquet Club 20th Anniversary

This past Saturday April 2, 2011, the Talbot family celebrated 20 years of ownership at Gold Key Racquet Club in Phoenix, Arizona. The celebration began at 4 pm with a Mixed Up Tennis Social, which included some of the club’s former pros as well as the current staff. There was also a dedicated carnival court just for kids that included mini tennis, tennis games and a bouncy house. Following the tennis social was a Pro Doubles exhibition with all the pros rotating in.

After the exhibition, Master Chef Clay Cox presented dinner with carefully smoked beef brisket and chicken cooked on the barbecue. The celebration continued late into the night with the wonderful voice and music of Jeordie & The Mixology Project who performed by the pool.

Images from this wonderful celebration can be seen on the Studio Laurent website or by clicking HERE. Don’t forget to also check out a couple of the videos below!
