My name is Shena Kaye and im the owner of Poetic Images based in Perrysburg, OH. First i would like to say how outstanding it is to find such a group here. I have been facing the challenges of ADD and not even known it for years. It seems to have been getting worse with my being able to concentrate, even with simple things such as listening to a conversation, ...i find myself asking "what" a million times and forgetting what i was just doing out of the blue like doing simple chores (i forget i started something and have 10 things going on). its really embarrassing. Since my mother-in-law, who is an RN, brought it to my attention that she feels i suffer from ADD i have noticed it even more. I took an ADD test and found i show positive for 4 out of 6 types of ADD...ouch.
I hope to learn what i can do to fix this or at least how to manage it. Maybe being here and getting to know all of you will not only help me from feeling so alone...but be able to try things you might have found works for you.

On a professional note:
Well, my business is photography and we specialize in photo documentaries and fashion. We cover weddings, as we consider them documenting a day in a families life, yet 75% of my clients are non-profit orgs. I shoot medical documentaries and I follow children as they undergo life saving surgeries provided by top surgeons at no cost to their families. One may ask how that would help a nonprofit...well my images are used in books, fund raisers, Grant presentations, newsletters and much more. I build awareness to the public community of what these nonprofits do to change the lives of these children and their families. I also follow disaster aid documenting floods, storms and the aftermath. these specific images help raise money to continue the efforts in helping rebuild what was lost.
Im currently trying to find a way to create a non-profit section of my company to service only non-profit clients. my goal then is to begin a funding source within my company to help cover MY costs so i can provide quality coverage for them at low or no cost to the nonprofit organization. I want to keep the money they raise to go forth to their cause and not on me taking the proof of what they do. there have been many times we have run into real problems with budgets and it hurts me knowing i can get the job done they need, yet they cant afford the service. (i have found myself doing projects for free to help them but its starting to hurt me financially.) that is when i began the plan to start a non-profit for non-profits.

on the fashion side I shoot fashion shows and designer clothing lines. I have done private portrait sessions and some of those images have gone on to win international awards, so that makes me happy...only my heart runs strongly with the power of what i can do for other in the nonprofit sector.

now that i have written you a book on what i do professionally let me end with a little about me personally. Im a mother of two children and wife to a wonder full man who works so hard I hardly see him. (no punn intended...he is really gone months at a time...lol.)and im currently trying very hard to prove to my darling husband that my business is worth more then he thinks. I may not be bringing in a million for him so he don't have to work...but im making a mark and i love what i do. that is enough for me...right now...heheee.

thank you for reading about me. i can't wait to get to know all of you and hopefully we can provide each other some wonderful leads to new clients. im an excellent promoter so tell me all about you.

yours professionally,

Shena Kaye
