Giving Back

Shelby Wartick loves to give back to the community and donates several sessions a year to silent auctions and other fundraisers in the local community. We also host special events throughout the year and work with local nonprofits on special projects. Please contact her if you have a fundraiser or silent auction that you would like her to consider donating to. Please be aware that Shelby limits the number of events that she will donate to throughout the year so that she can maintain excellent client service. It is in your best interest to contact her as soon as you know of an upcoming event. Please contact us today to submit your proposal for consideration.



The Stork Affair is a place to find all kinds of resources for all things related to growing your family plus raise money for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. 

The event started when Shelby noticed a need for more access to resources from questions clients were asking during their newborn sessions. She approached Sara and Tricia with Sprout by Steve’s Ace to partner with her and bring the amazing event to the Tri-States! Sprout jumped right in and thought we should also make the event a fundraiser! 2019 marks the 2nd Annual event and we are grateful for the community partnerships, media sponsorships and volunteers that make this event possible. We are able to raise money for a great cause and provide resources for new and expecting parents in our community. Learn more about the Dubuque Stork Affair!
