{Portrait Session Giveaway}

December 27, 2011

Congratulations to the Glick family who were nominated by the Ososkalo family! Thank you all who sent in the all the stories…..they all touched me very much! Hope everyone had a blessed Christmas!

You know someone, someone who has experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish the gift this Christmas season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.

(It doesn’t have to just be someone who can’t afford it……it is for anyone who you thinks deserves this :))

You (we) all know someone…

I am asking you to tell me who they are and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography — $300 worth(Deluxe Session), to be exact. It’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this giving season.

AND, the second best reason to do this? The person who nominates the winner receives a $100 gift certificate. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?  Sooooo, how about it?  Let’s show a little love!

So Here’s What To Do.

Spread the word. Tell everyone about the giveaway.  The more involved, the better.

Nominate someone. Send me their story (, why you think they’re the perfect person or family to receive a custom photo session and images.  Why do they deserve a little blessing in their life? The full story (along with your name, contact info, their name(s) and info, where they live, what they’re experiencing and why you think they deserve to be chosen) must be sent to

I’ll take nominations up until December 20th at midnight.

The winner will be announced Christmas Eve Day.

Open your heart to someone this Christmas season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.
