Mary Clare Stroh | MN + Portland, OR Musician Photographer

During my time of service with NET Ministries I have the privilege of meeting some pretty neat & also pretty talented people.  Mary Clare is one of those people.  Not only is she a dear friend but also a ridiculously talented creator of some thoughtful and beautiful music.  Please take a minute to drop by her Facebook or soundcloud, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Support Me Becoming a Missionary!


Hi Everyone! I have some really exciting news!  Starting this coming year, I’ve been invited to serve as one of 135  young adults who will volunteer for a year serving with NET Ministries. NET (National Evangelization Teams) is an organization based in St. Paul, MN and since 1981 they have trained and sent 2,000 young adults in teams to travel across the United States to share their faith and love of Christ with youth on NET retreats.  On August 15th I will board a plane to Minnesota to participate in a five-week faith-training program. Then from September to May, I will be leading retreats across the country and evangelizing to teens. I first learned about NET at a conference two years ago. The idea of serving really stuck with me and I have decided to take this year to serve before I continue working towards my degree.  I am especially excited about serving with NET because I love sharing my faith and working with youth in a ministry setting!

As part of the invitation to serve with NET Ministries, it is required that I raise $5,000 to help partially fund my year of service.  I have decided that as part of my fundraising, 75-100% of all the income I receive from all photography sessions will go towards my $5,000 goal, which is where YOU come in!

I would like to give you the opportunity to receive beautiful pictures of you and your loved ones all while helping me work towards my $5,000 goal, and as part of this offer, I am taking $50 off any session, which is including Senior Sessions, general Portrait Sessions, and Family Sessions.  More information about investment and examples of my work can be seen right here on the blog, or my Facebook page {here} Donations to NET Ministries are also tax-deductible!

If you’d like to learn more about NET, visit, and feel free to click on the ‘Donate’ tab and donate straight to my fund (just be sure to leave a note in the comments section that your donation is for Jacque Szczepanski’s fund.)

Since I will be leaving in August, I am booking sessions right up until the beginning of August, and not booking any until I return in May of next year!  I’m incredibly excited and very blessed to be presented with this unique opportunity, and gratefully accept any thoughts and prayers you have to offer at this time as well.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone to book your session.  I look forward to meeting with you!
