Giving Back:

As a local family-owned business, we appreciate the support we’ve received from the community over the years and celebrate the opportunity to give back to organizations that make our cities such a special place. 

WND takes pride in being in being involved with the following organizations:

Wendy's Cancer Warriors

WLOS TV recognized Wendy Newman as a finalist in the annual "Person Of The Year" award, for her generous work giving back to terminally ill children and all cancer warriors with free photography and photographs for all. Being raised at a health resort her first 18 years of life gave her a living foundation for healthy eating, nutrition, non injuring exercise, meditation, rest, passion with a purpose. 

Wendy offers a uniquely magical experience for individuals and families by proving totally free photoshoots and images for those battling cancer. Wendy hopes this serves as both a momentary escape for families and individuals as well as creating extraordinary family heirloom photos that can be cherished eternally. 

This project has been featured by multiple news outlets and publications including The Citizen Times and WLOS.
