As I was sitting with my family today, thinking of all I’m thankful for, I realized that I’m incredibly blessed. I try to give back as much as I can in life, but I’m constantly thinking of how I can give more. I don’t have much, but what I do have is my camera and ability to capture memories. This holiday season, I’m giving back with a contest worth $1,000. The details are below!
You know someone. You know 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 it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.
You know someone. I guarantee it.
I want to know who they are and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography–$700 worth to be exact. I’m giving a complimentary session fee and including my Signature Collection, worth $700. Whether it’s an album, large prints, photos for Grandma, or a slideshow to watch over and over, it’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.
Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a complimentary session complete with my Petite Collection–a $400 value! What better reason to show some love could there possibly be?
The rules (you knew there had to be rules, right!?)
*You cannot nominate yourself and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a $2 million dollar vacation home in the Bahamas does not qualify as sincere financial need)
*The nominee must reside in these three areas, the Palouse (ideally), the Seattle area or the Vancouver, WA area. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
*You must include the full story
*All nominations MUST be received no later than December 22nd, 2009 because the winner will be announced on Christmas Eve after being reviewed by a panel of professional photographers! Now get nominating!!
Open your heart to someone this holiday season–and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine!
