CONTEST: Take time to be thankful

The warmer temps make it hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just one week away. Or perhaps, I am getting older and time does go faster like my Grandmother used to always say.

For many, the holiday season is wonderful. However, for others it can be difficult. Whether it be personal losses, illness, unemployment or financial difficulties. A few years back I gifted a family a portrait session along with prints as part of a contest. The experience changed me profoundly. It made me realize that I just don't take photographs. I feel true connections with many of my clients who have come to me over the years. I still remember small details from many of their sessions and it makes what I do truly a gift, not a job.

In light of current events, our world feels crazy. And you can help but sense the uncertainty of tomorrow. So now, more than ever, SLOW DOWN. Take time with those that truly mean a lot to you. Give them a hug. Say a kind word. And, tell them how important they are. 

With that being said, I would like you to nominate an individual or family who is going through difficult times and would benefit from a fun portrait session. It can be a family session, individual portrait, child or couple session, in my style. The session will be conducted in Wilton or Ridgefield CT between February-May 2016 but they can be from anywhere. You can nominate them here to tell me their story. Entries will be accepted until Wednesday November 25th at 6pm. 

On Thanksgiving November 26th, two winners will be picked. One nominee will be picked at random, and another will be picked by me. The winners will receive a full portrait session and five 8x10 prints of their choice.

Please share and help me spread the word.
