Giving Is Awesome!

Thursday, November 26, 2009

When it comes down to it...I love to make others happy. Sometimes...a bit too much.

But, how can I resist. I love to see smiles rise from faces that have been bogged down with everyday issues, eyes that light up with anticipation for a gift, and giggles from the feeling of overwhelming happiness from a simple act, gift or idea.

I simply love making others happy.

At the end of this CRAZIEST portrait time of the year, I'm in a giving give the gift of timeless memories.

This gift is for a certain person/family. And, you know them.

{Here's the deal}

Do you know someone who has experienced a recent tragedy, is struggling to make ends meet, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. Someone who truly cannot afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. Someone who deserves a year round reminder of his/her family's spirit, love and beauty.

Nominate that certain someone and he/she will receive a complimentary custom photographer session....valued at $775 . The gift will include a family session and CD with all edited high res digital negatives from session, with print release.

{The sweet part}

The person who nominates the winner will receive a $150 print credit.

Can you think of a better holiday present for this "someone you know"?

{Here are the rules}
~You may not nominate yourself. The nominee must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services.

~The nominee must reside within 25 miles of Gilbert. Identify the nominee, what they're experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Be sure to include a way to contact both you and the nominee.

~You MUST email the full story with the nominee's contact information to: by December 15th, 2009

~The winner will be notified on December 24th, 2009.

~Portrait sessions being given to be held in 2010.

To each and everyone of you....

Today, I'm thankful for my wonderful husband, gorgeous kids and my loving family. And I can't forget to mention my amazing clients that keep me smiling each day and long night.

Happy Thanksgiving!
