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 Thanksgiving contest. To say that the experience changed me is an understatement. The mother of the family had been on a long road with multiple types of cancer. Her husband and two young boys knew of the looming outcome of her strong and brave battle. It took every ounce of my own strength not to think about what would be. Instead we spent the afternoon together laughing and sharing some special moments that I will never forget. (And I kept it together.)
I always knew I started this business because of my true love of connecting with people and allowing them to see what I see behind my lens. That everyone deserves to feel loved, special and beautiful in a timeless photograph that they can share with generations to come.
Now here's where YOU come in.
I need you to nominate an individual or family who is going through difficult times and would benefit from a fun portrait session. It can be for a family, a child or couple. The session will be conducted in San Ramon or Danville CA but the nominee can be from anywhere.
Entries will be accepted until Wednesday November 23rd at 5pm.
On Thanksgiving November 24th a winner will be picked at random. They will receive a portrait session and up to 15 digital files.
Please help spread the word and share on your social media pages.
With love and gratitude,
